    Well, I've had Aurora in hand for about 4 days bought second hand, and what I feared would happen did- one of the thigh swivels sheared off when I tried rotating the thigh a tad bit too much.
    After the right leg broke, I figured what the hell, I'll try and pop the left off and see what's up. It looks like the disc at the top of the stalk that slides into the thigh is what is too thick. I shaved the inside of the disc down a bit and the left leg rotates like a dream. Kind of weird they'd overlook that on both legs and arms... Hopefully that doesn't happen on any of the new 3 due out.

    I'm just glad BBTS still has them in stock for cheap. I already ordered, so as long as I don't get an email saying "just kidding- we're sold out" I'm ok with it. Still sucks, but at least it didn't happen years down the line when they command much more $$$ in the secondary market.

    Not sure I'm following? Right leg is where the top twisted right off. The left leg was stiff, but didn't break. I was able to Slide it out, trim some of the plastic and then slid it back in. So I've got a one legged Aurora. Ha!

    Hmm, im wondering if I should risk trying to pop the leg off. I cant wait to just combine these guys. I wanna call him Roadking or Throttleking and get a Trident, cause I think with his head sculpt that may look good.

    Maybe now that Grind Rod is getting a second run, Toyworld figure they need to make a like number of Aurora toys. Enough so they can make an even number of all the limbs.

    What the hell is happening here? Figure has been in a plastic tub and I took it out in anticipation of the new bots incoming. But really random yellowing? Why not all of the plastic?
