    You are 100% in the right here. planet X has repeatedly told us they are sending the parts and has not done so. please send us a message to the website and we will arrange a full exchange for you. They are replacement part service has been poor to say the least and my apologies for putting too much faith in them to get it done quickly or even at all at this point.

    Sent a message earlier today through the usual channel; as soon as I get a good shipping address, I’ll send Pluto right on back. As always, you and everyone over at TCP are the best folks in the business. Can’t thank you enough for your patience!

    Geez, it's making me very sad to see Pluto is not standing the test of time at all. Mine broke just yesterday too, the hing with the front piece broke off and I have no idea what to do now. I ordered from BigBadToyStore a year ago so not like it's in warrenty and Planet X doesn't seem to have contact. And it's not like tgis figure was mishandled either. Such a shame...

    15538308392221293886191.jpg ive had of the little armature for the wings break apart by the pins
    One by the wing, the other side by the body
    And no pressure , it just sort of crumbled
    Like a ritz cracker. Luckly, they are still held in by a side , but for how long?

    I know i need to pick another one up i can see those armatures failing anytime , and i worry about that leg ratchet a lot

    I’m sorry for your loss and all, but.. if he isn’t in the trash yet, Can I buy his back spikes off of you? I don’t think anything is going to work out as far as getting replacements for mine. I’d even buy the whole thing for scrap; I’ve been sitting on an incomplete Pluto for so long, it would basically be like a fresh purchase at this point, lol..

    Damn, I'll have to check my figure over when I get home from vaycay. So far the only breakage I know of was my own fault.

    Look at how long it took them to send the replacement blade that came for Caelus in the Triton box? Months no? Eventually they did make one and send it though. Still it was an absurdly long process.

    Sorry, wish I could give them to you, but I ended up gluing them into place so I don't know how I'd get them all out without damaging.

    This has probably already been asked, but would it be possible to use the head from the Generations FOC Megs figure on this guy? It would be a bit undersized, but I think the Generations figure has a better sculpt (and looks meaner/angrier).

    the PX figure is between voyager and leader sized, the Generations figure is deluxe. So probably not

    I was planning to get this guy next. I love his alt mode. But now seeing this thread & the breakage reports I'm not sure if I should. What do you think? Is it worth it to take a chance? I was gonna order from TFsource so they'll help me out if it breaks or is missing any pieces.

    No breakage on mine. I've had it a while and messed with it a bunch. It seems pretty solid.

    What dxp said. I actually Transformed mine last night hammered and it went flawlessly. I did snap a calf peg off when I first got him but that was my fault, not the build quality. You just cant treat him like an old-school Unicron trilogy figure haha.
