    There are better paints and plastics that could be purchased with these higher prices.

    I don't know, I think mine is from Takara without a coin.

    I'm still a little meh on them replacing coins with pins. But I wouldn't even mind a Dinobot pin. Oh well.

    I'm definitely not an expert but here's my best match for the orange on the thighs. Orange + silver

    A mixture with those 2

    Very nice, I like this more than the original. It looks flat compared to the choice of colour you chose.

    Just got my Dinobot yesterday and only transformed him twice. His left shoulder ratchet no longer works... I’m only going to keep him in robot mode, but that sucks. He looks great on the stand. I’ve never had a figure this large be so poseable. I’ve also never had a figure stand before. He looks amazing.

    If only 1 of the shoulder ratchet tabs sheared off, it might still be fixable. Got any pics?

    Ok, I found the primal savage video about taking a pin punch and fixing it. I’m not gonna go that far. I’m keeping him in robot mode, so that ratchet really isn’t needed. Still sucks that it happened on a $280 figure. I’m gonna laugh my ass off if my KO bw Megatron is flawless.

    @Kevin Iaquinto Are you able to see the other side? There are 2 of those tabs, 1 on each side and 2 corresponding slots. It looks like the either both, or 1 of the tabs isn't in 1 of the slots as there's a wide gap there.

    Hoping this is just a matter of rotating the inner ratchets to realign properly, without having to take the shoulder apart. If you can, I'd pull the arm to unfold the hinges and see if you can locate the other tab and both slots.

    Also is yours the Hasbro Asia release or the Japanese release?

    I’m not sure which one I have. Bottom of the box is made in China. I got it from chosen prime.
    There’s a pic of the underneath

    image.jpg

    It looks like the teeth on the ratchet need to be reset. It does not impact poseablility at all. I’m not as mad at myself as I initially was. Still a 10/10 figure.

    Okay, your copy can still be saved because mine was like that on 1 side....wait, before I go further, the 1st pic was from the top and doesn't have the gap for the tab go into right? Unless I'm seeing things wrong.

    As long as 1 tab is there and both gaps, it should still be fixable. If there's only 1
    gap... it might be trickier.

    That would explain why the ratchet no longer works though

    I only see one gap. I edited my last reply after you posted this. If it needs a pin punch, I’ll just let it be. That is until I can’t stop thinking about it, lol.

    TBC it’s literally just one disk sliding out of sync with the other. The design flaw that causes it also makes it fixable, as the two disks are simply two far apart to stay linked.

    In fact you could very well accidentally fix it by rotating the shoulder mount until the groove and tab meet up again from transformation or posing. (Since the ratchet itself will stay fixed without the give the slot and tab allow for the teeth to separate)

    Well if there's no gap on the top for the tab to go in, but 1 tab and 1 gap at the bottom, it might be a harder fix. Otherwise the the rachet will be uneven at the top. That's what I was trying to get at.

    If you were to take the inner ratchets out, there should be 2 tabs, 1 across the other and 2 gaps, 1 across the other.

    Me too. I missed him the first couple times & have no desire to shell out over $300 for him. It was hard enough for me to pull the trigger on BW Megatron & he was only like $220.

    That sucks. I got one from TF Source a few months ago and the ratchet for his forward and back arm movement was REALLY loose. Couldn’t even hold his shield up in front of him without it falling down. Different ratchet, but definitely had to return him.
