    So i picked up Quirinus recently and upon transforming him noticed the badly stressed pegs on the back of his legs. I know one poster here came up with a qausi-fix. But would it be safe to simply leave the figure in robot mode with the tail halves plugged into said pegs?

    I plug mine in, but I usually leave him in Dino mode. I just try to be careful when pegging and unpegging them.

    amazing pics, made me realize this probably is the best dino set out there. I have the first five and never had a moment of regret, you should definitely get neptune as well

    Honestly, I'm pretty happy with the team I have. Just wasn't interested in Neptune and opted to spend the money on what did appeal to me.

    He's not a bad fig. Just, surprisingly, has become the 'chase' figure for some odd reason. To be fair, he was also the least prominent dinobot in the FoC franchise.

    Yep I just got him myself to finish out the team. Inventory had seemed to dry up for a bit and never saw anyone selling used.

    Mine is finally on it's way.
    Once I have Not-Paddles, my set will be complete.

    Anywhere to get Quirinus still? Seems that he and Neptune are the rarities...

    Hi, sorry for necroing this thread, but I just received my quinrinus and his head is extremely loose. Is there any way to tighten up that balljoint as I fear the socket in his head might have been too big, hence the looseness. Thank for your help

    Love how you made his horns and swords glow!

    Is that a computer-made effect or did you use something to redirect the sunlight?

    I wrestle with that connundrum of 'complete the team/cast/what-have-you' vs. 'spend the money on what you actually want' a lot. Reduced income (of late) helps :p 

    Also, that pic of Slag with the light captured in his horns (in alt mode. I mean they are all great, but that one in particular) is absolutely killer!

    Sorry to necro this thread, but how would you guys compare Quirinus to Vulcun? I have their metallic Vulcun and despite some of the minor gripes I have, I really do like him! I'm tempted to buy this figure given my good experience, but I heard he's quite the dip in quality from Vulcun. I won't be going for any other dinobots, but this guy does have my interest. Is this figure fun/solid/playable/sturdy (i.e. what I personally look for), or is he just a display piece?

    Also if it's not a bother, could anyone post a picture of Vulcun holding one of Quirinus' guns? I'm just curious to see how that would look.

    I like him. He's really sleek in robot mode (very little kibble) and the weapon sheaths are a nice touch. He's not going to meet the modern standards for ratchets and poseability, but he's pretty fun and since he's light, he can hold a lot of poses without ratchets. Transformation is straightforward without any scary or frustrating moments.

    I might have time to take pics today. Maybe.

    Thanks for the response! Are there any fragile bits I'll need to be aware of? I know Summanus had reports of bad QC and the clear plastic breaking off easily, so I'm hoping Quirinus is much more durable. Also, what do you mean by "not meeting the modern standards for ratchets"? I don't collect 3rd party too much (Vulcun so far is my first and only) so I'm not sure what quality exists for figures nowadays. Usually I collect smaller scale Has/Tak figures, so Quirinus should be better than those at the very least, right? Would it be worth it to buy this guy on his own? (That is, not going for the full PX dinobot set). I'm still undecided on their Caelus, so there's a good chance I'll just get Quririnus to give Vulcun a friend, but not to have the whole team ensemble.
