    I wish I could. I bought it off a Chinese seller on eBay. I doubt he would do an exchange.

    What I would need would be a new set of the white connector arms, one right and one left.

    I know it's a hassle to follow up but you should be covered by eBay and PayPal for faulty products.

    This really is a mod that TT themselves should have done.

    But I don't know it it's worth the money to me. It definitely improves the figure, but it only solves one of the problems I have with the Vanettes. They still have their beer belly's and wasp shaped upper body (and are too large).

    Do I want to spend close to 40 euro to fix one problem of a mould that I don't care that much about?

    Honestly if you're not sold on the mold as the kit only changes one aspect it may not be worth the outlay, as it is quite a lot for what it is.
    I really enjoy them and always did, especially the engineering so as the hip kibble was my main complaint they were totally worth it for me.

    Yeah I almost ordered a set, but in the end I'd just be throwing money into a product I still wouldn't love.

    Nice pics. Stripe on the door looks pretty misaligned though :( . Anyone else's like that?

    For me personally the only issue I had with the figures were the hip panels, so these sets are a must for me. I'm probably more excited to get these than I have been for most of the recent full figures I've received.

    I'm not thrilled with these figures either, and $40 to fix them both is quite a bit. But I don't see a better Ironhide coming any time soon unfortunately. And if we do get another, the trend lately is to make everything bigger, and these are already too tall IMO. So I ordered a pair and am just going to make the best of it for now.

    I love Ironhide and Ratchet and these make them even better... maybe the price could be a little lower considering how popular they have been.

    Luckily I'm not a 'need every character' type of collector. I was for a time, but in the end I just ended up with a bunch of stuff on my shelves that I didn't actually like.

    Me too, I'm really picky so the few characters I do keep I want to be perfect...

    Got my set yesterday and installed to my Ratchet KO no problem. Looks great! Excellent product Shadow Fisher dude!

    I feel the price for what you get is great. Everybody is in a different financial situation, but c'mon - what is $20? I mean, most of us are here because we've spent waaaaay more on plastic toys.

    So much this. I have felt like these figures were incomplete since the day I got them and knew from the start these mods were coming. I am fine with this mold simply because we have never had anything close to the accurate figure but what TT did by not finishing these was unforgivable. This is actually one mod that I consider absolutely necessary because it is a fundamental change to the figure.

    Ok so I just finished reading up on these product...and I just want to make sure I understood it correctly:

    Since I LOVE both renditions of this mold, aaaaaand barely even minded the hip kibble in the first place, is it safe to say I will LOVE LOVE LOVE it even more with this upgrade?

    I'll just go ahead and pre-order/buy both now then.

    For me they were a must have. Not only does it fix the hip kibble but it also beefs the sides of the chest so the proportions look better
