    I still have yet to even get a confirmation E-Mail for my order, and my friend hasn’t gotten a shipping notification for his... anybody else having these problems as well?

    I would contact customer service about your order. I found out that, even though the I was given a confirmation number at the end of my order, my order was not finalized in HTS's system.
    Your friend just needs to be patient. If he received the email confirmation, he should be fine. I just received my shipping notice this morning.

    I am in the exact same position. I just called them and they said they will try to sort it out. I am going to wait to hear from them and, if nothing, call back by next Wednesday.

    I, too, did not get a confirmation email.

    I didn't get a shipping notification for mine, but I logged into my HTS account and saw that there was a tracking number for mine. I checked my email spam and there was the email. So don't forget to check spam.

    Say, how does one go about ordering on Amazon Japan? Would one be able to use their already existing Amazon account, or does it not register?

    Wasn't able to get back into my account on Hasbrotoyshop after getting kicked out so I missed the mark Monday. Just want to get a better idea of the order process.

    Same here, got kicked out (after being in it all day prior to the SDCC going live) and it wouldn't let me back in. By the time I set up a new account the SW Aphra set was gone.
    I had to register on Amazon JP, it didn't "see" my regular Amazon account.

    So I've been going about brainstorming some ideas to help out with that void in his back in ape mode....and I came up with a "thing you could do." It's not very good, but as Emgo says in his videos, "it's a thing you can do if you want to."

    Ape with void:

    No doubt the best trick is the one presented by @Antz , where you use one of the forearm armor pieces to simply click into the space, it fits so perfect you'd think it was intended. However, it then leaves you without a second armor peice; but you could easily just take the other off too, it doesn't look bad without them.

    With the back filled in:

    Then I came up with this idea.....take the Septor, take a Prime Master, and configure it like this:

    [​IMG]

    Use the leg hooks you've created to "hook" onto his back....for traveling mode:

    Isn't the greatest fix, but it does fill in that space and provide you with something to do with that Septor...plus it's cool to imagine that Primal is lugging that thing around the jungle when he's not ruling with it on this throne.

    Looking good with that scepter on his back, I was wondering how I could do something similar. Also happy to see my fan mode being used.

    I'm really not fond of the 'stand facing the wall' way the Prime Masters attach to the sceptre. I mean, it does look cool, until you realise you're staring at someone's teeny weeny legs. I guess I'll be avoiding that feature.

    Honestly, they should have just pegged into the top of the sceptre the same way they do in the Prime Armor. Not only would they get rid of those stupid red bulbs, but they would also be upright. Hasbro really dropped the ball on that, but I don’t really care as I gave the it to Volcanicus to use as a big ol’ club.

    The 'red bulbs' are a kind of homage to the old toy Optimal Primal's club thing (always thought looked weird, myself). I guess they're there to to make the sceptre look more 'appropriate' for Primal.

    I do have an alternative idea that I put in one of the other threads.

    Weird, I just got off the phone 1/2 hour ago with HTS Customer Service because I got an email saying that they couldn’t fulfil my order without confirmation of some details. It was due to my using a non-US credit card, but after confirmation everything was OK. They’re aware that I’m in Canada and my order is going to be shipped Monday or Tuesday apparently. We’ll see what happens.

    My crown seems to be glued securely together. Think I'll just keep it like that to avoid losing part of the crown. Not sure I like the tiara piece on Primal anyway.

    I'm thinking that the glued version is what it's supposed to be.....this is just a happy coincidence.

    my main complaint about that is if you use the special editions that have painted heads, you risked paint chipping... that and the risk of the PMs mooning me... the little pranksters.

    also, the back of my crown popped off, too and without the crown horns, it reminds me of Gorilla Grods' helmet.
