Not sure about EmGo but Bobby Skullface definitely forgot
Fixed hip version does not have fixed hips
Edit: but at least what looks like paint issues on the knee just wiped off
Edit 10 minutes and fix is done. Knees seem fine so far.
Thank you. I didn’t want to bother you with an email if there was community knowledge of the circumstances. All good and no problem waiting. Thanks!
Got my ship notice from Show.Z, so I would assume the "new batch" is reaching other retailers.
Just got mine from ShowZ, both hips were backwards. Pretty simple fix though. Only other annoyance is a paint chip right in the chest/hood. far enough to the side i cant hide it with a faction sticker either =/
I painted mine, had the same thing. Tamiya gloss white. Turned out a bit blotchy, really bugs me!
Love the figure so much, tempted to buy another but another swing at the QC roulette.... Ugh.
Not sure that easy a fix even if a spare chest/bonnet was available.
Any word of a G2 repaint?
FYI just received my 2nd batch version from @ShowZStore and the legs are still installed incorrectly. *sigh*
Shit. I’m still waiting for my preorder from TCP. They were waiting for the second batch that’s supposed to be fixed.
It's not the hardest fix, but annoying nonetheless.
I sat this one out waiting for the 2nd batch to have the fixed hips. This is truly pathetic on TE's part after loving their Prime.
Seriously. If this is the case, I might just cancel my pre-order and buy a Sphinx off eBay, on principle.
I got one from the first batch, leg fix was pretty easy but I get you being disappointed about the second batch not being fixed.
I had Sphinx before this but I have to say that once the legs are fixed on Speedstar it's a really nice figure. I'm probably going to sell my Sphinx PS-01C if you decide to go this direction.
I will send you a PM.
they really need to poka yoke the design of those joints/assembly because it seems its way too easy to screw up for those assemblign it and way too hard to inspect after assembly to pack. i waited for 2nd batch too. tfs has yet to get theirs it seems. hopefully mine isn't screwed up but i guess its not hte end of the world as it seems easy but if its widespread on second batch ...WTF TE!?
Anyone know if Toyhax intends to offer some stickers for this? I went ahead & bit the bullet for one, but would prefer just a bit less...plain toon for my Mirage. Would love to have a little on the chest to suit my personal tastes
If anyone has the lighter colored version of MMC for sale, please PM me. Looking for one as I don't think I am interested in TE's version.
Ideally looking for the version with the livery details, making it look like the G1 toy.
Why post here instead of the Sphinx thread?
Probably hoping someone who recently acquired TE might be willing to sell their MMC now...
