    what's wrong with the eye?

    Mine is fine, mostly, except for his bug mode legs being put on the wrong side, and one of them looks like the plastic didn't get molded 100%, so there's this glaring thin, white spot in the middle. Not sure if it's worth the hassle to try to replace though, since I just got back my box from FunPub fixing all the Botcon toys I had issues with.

    Max-B, he'sa remold of K-9. He's from the Japanese Beast Wars 2nd series.

    Mine doesn't feel perfect, but isn't awful either. Feels about the same as all the other versions of this mold that i've owned, which is all of them...

    yeah, mine were the same way. Maybe a batch made it out with the legs on the wrong side.

    Overall, i'm still satisfied. I think the head sculpt is pretty rad, it's a clever idea and has really grown on me since we first heard about it last year. The only thing I don't like the the pink on him, should definitely be a darker purple to fully represent Thrust more, but oh well...

    I'm sorry people are getting so many loose joints on their figure. It's possible I may have gotten lucky with mine. I probably should have spent a little more time with it before posting this thread but the knees are the loosest joints on my figure and I will be tightening them. However they don't flop around and they can still support his weight when bent despite being a little back heavy and are no looser then on my Waspinator so I stand by what I originally said.

    And because I never took a picture of his attack mode.

    They're Beast Wars II Cyborg Beasts:

    Thrustinator is a repaint and remould of Dirgegun
    " Dinobot" is Thrustor
    The K-9 remould is Max-B

    There's two others: Hellscream & Gigastorm

    They're the upgradedforms of five earlier BWII characters Dirge, Thrust,
    BB, Starscream & Gigastorm

    I have them originals, but those cyborg beasts could get a Thrustinator makeover for Dinobot, Silverbolt, and Depthcharge (a stretch I know).

    Mine arrived today, loose right wing on mine too. Was about to complain about the missing missiles, but then I saw them clipped into his wings. Are there just two, or should there have been one loaded in the launcher too? I don't care personally, but I need to sell this P.O.S. I hate this figure even more than I usually hate Waspinator. Should have sent this dead last.

    Got mine a few days ago. The bug legs were reversed, and just like my Waspinator and Dirgegun, they fall off of his arms in bug mode all the time...
