    Got mine in, unfortunately one of the little rear claw bits was broken off and the LED lights don't seem to work for me.

    Did you put batteries in it? It doesn't say it but none are included.

    QC seems to be all over the place. The ones that are fine are great, but the ones who are broken are really broken with no little or quick fixes.

    Didn't Furman introduce the idea of a "phase sixer" with Sixshot? I think he even says "I'm more of a phase six kinda guy". I don't know when "phase sixer" started being specifically used as a description, though.

    It's ShowZ so I definitely have no doubts that they'd get me the part, it may just take a while. Luckily it doesn't affect the transformation or usability, it just looks bad. Dunno about the LED not working bit, though.

    EDIT: Well it turns out the LED does work, just for some reason the magnet on the sword of mine isn't strong enough to turn it off/on without pulling off the battery compartment panel. It won't turn on from the rear of the head either, although I may just not be finding the sweet spot. Either way glad it does actually light up, makes the T-Rex eyes really pop.

    Furman didn't hype up the P6ers as much as Roberts did. Sixshot was incredibly powerful as we expected by him but not to the level that could casually solo the strongest Autobots.

    Roberts introduced Phase Sixers as a hard concept in MtMtE when we find out about Overlord as well as when we meet the DJD

    I'm having a same problem. I took it apart to see if I could loosen the ratchet, but it looks like it has a rivet or something in it, I thought it might just be a screw. Has anyone seen anything like this or any suggestions ? I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks :)

    Man, this seems to have more issues than Deathsaurus/Star Saber put together.

    Or maybe the production run is bigger.

    Which is some bullshit since Planet-X raised the fucking price on us too! 30 more dollars for some bigger odds of things going wrong!

    Got my Cacus in yesterday. Couldn’t get the right knee to plug in so I looked and the factory put the pin on the tail hinge in the wrong spot. Rather than put it thru the hole, they punched it right thru the grey hinge piece so it is not in the right spot and I can’t tab the knee in.

    already contacted the retailer, waiting to see what can be done. That pin isn’t going to come out without a fight though since it’s in the wrong spot.

    I just hope PX didn't use Keith's second factory. That thing is built on an Indian burial ground!

    I made another post soon after — I ended up fixing the issue by dripping a decent bit shock oil in the ratchet.
