    Since I just ordered the Hasbro version from amazon, what are the issues I need to look for?

    Would read the thread, but you know, laziness and all that.

    Appreciated!

    Left hip spring just need to be cut off 1/4 . And tighten his ass screw to prevent him getting a slipdisc on his spine.

    I just received mine from Amazon and everything is tip top. Hip ratchets are smooth as butter. I was really surprised.

    That box is the stuff of a 10 year olds dreams.
    Literally. That's the kind of box something comes in, when you are dreaming you got a new transformer.

    Initially, I was kind of worried, but after the first movement of each hip, I suspected that I had an updated version, or possibly a product from a newer/revised batch. I don't know how to label it, but it would be nice to get someone else to chime in on their Trypticon purchase from Amazon. I would rather my sample be the standard vice a "one off."

    Update: Better to err on the side of caution, I did open the ratchets up and added Super Lube, synthetic grease, to them.

    I have the same worry as I am not sure if mine has a better hip ratchet or not. Can someone suggest which type of weaker spring I should buy and from which online store? Thanks.

    Love the pics. Did you do similar pics with Metroplex too? I saved one or two some time ago. Similar sort of thing. Metroplex and open sky with city stuff. Loved it. :)
