Shattered Glass Prime Breakdown then... He lost the other eye
My Breakdown was missing the sticker sheet. Hasbro Pulse said I can purchase a new set and return the one I have. After hearing how crappy they are from you guys, I hope Reprolabels make a set.
Reunited at last
Knockout is a little mistransformed my friend.
honestly all we need is Knockout saying Dinkleberg as his paint job is ruined and my life is complete, well, that and a winning lottery ticket, but I will take the Knockout if I must
Breakdown is totally worthy, but that eye is bugging me to more I fiddle around with him, lol. I'm going to get some yellow paint today, probably just use a tip of a sewing pin or toothpick to apply it.
To me, Breakdown! Or I will have thy other eye!
My Breakdown has had an incredibly stiff left thigh swivel. Couldn’t get it to move and it wasn’t lined up properly out of the box. I finally managed to pop the thigh swivel off my break down and found this.
The mushroom peg has a deformity. Problem is I don’t know if this was like that out of the box or if this is caused by something inside the socket pushing against the plastic, causing the deformity. I’m not educated on dudes outside of floor polish for loose joints, so does anyone have a suggestion. I was thinking of sanding the leg down so it’s flat, but I’m not sure if that’s the best course of action. Sorry for the blurry picture. Couldn’t capture it well.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the way it's supposed to be. The notch let's it click into predetermined spots as you rotate. At least that's how mine is. The thigh is super tight but it loosened up with some shock oil. Future polish and shock oil should be in every collector's tool kit.
I see. Only reason I question it is because the peg fits fine at every other position. Just not in the proper configuration. It always gets caught up where that dip/deformation is. There’s no symmetry on the other side either.
Anybody want a Vehicon? I bought the set for Breakdown and don't really want the Vehicon. I transformed him twice to make sure there was no issues and put him back in the box. The instructions, stickers and sprue kit for the Arms Micron are still sealed in the baggie.
I'll take it.
Put a dab of acrylic paint on his eye with a toothpick, so that's fixed... Shock oil also loosed up his thigh swivel, so that's fine now also.
BUT! I noticed that whole section that his head is pegged is dark translucent plastic!!
...And there's cracks in the plastic! I haven't even transformed the damn thing. You guys may want to check your copy...
I'm going to call and email Hasbro Pulse to see if they can do an exchange.
Just going to advise that it may be unwise to plug Hades' handle into his back in bat mode, because when I popped it out today to get into scythe mode this happened:
Jeez....Breakdown is a freaking QC nightmare....
FedEx is going to gouge me for a dice roll of Q/C.
Yeah warning when putting any of them together, Hades, Gora II, Zamu, and possible the Vehicon one, don't hesitate putting it together, and they will stress on you from assembly
Just opened up my 2-pack to inspect it and everything looked ok until I noticed Breakdown is missing 1 of the panels that tabs into the side of the knee in robot mode...
I'm going to try emailing customer service and see if they can help me.
On your copy when you lift up the chest panel, there's no cracks/stress marks in the plastic on the back?
Checked mine. Not a single stress mark on that back part, but something under the neck but I say that one is one me
