    He's a siege mold so that tracks. Honestly the WFC trilogy has been a bit of a blurr for me, and SS 86 has not helped. Then there were the repacks. Also I've been getting side tracked with MOTU Origins.

    Oh yeah, the wobble is on pretty well every copy, tho it isn't problematic to anything.

    Picked up these two gems and a second Vertebreak. Got super lucky, they had Giga and Vertebreak on clearance, $30 and $5, respectively.

    Damn, I am so glad I decided to change my mind and bite the bullet on Netflix Cheets, he looks amazing and really brings out the best in this mold.

    I never expected to be this deep into the Core figures. I balked at the idea for so long, how did I end up with every single one?!

    He’s being released in the Kingdom wave of the Netflix line, so I consider him, Black Ironhide, and Deep Cover to all be a part of Kingdom, but thats me.

    So it’s Seige with slight remolding or repo label. I’ll buy him if I see him. If not I’m good with Seige.
    FYI sideswipe should have been Retail and Red Alert the 2 pack.

    It's a pretty common problem of the mold; and unless you do some elaborate disassembling of the figure itself, I don't think there will be an easy way to fix it.

    I do have both versions of that specific mold and unfortunately, BW Grimlock still has the same waist wobble.

    YouTube:
    With the shoulders low like that it's just makes him look weird. And when you standing straight, your hands is not supposed to reach your knees. Unless it's optimus primal with his gorilla arms.
    And when do the T pose it looks worse cuz when you do a T pose is your shoulders sits higher or lower? For a giant robot low shoulders doesn't look good.

    Not good at all

    I glad Hasbro/Takara realise this and corrected it. As for me I still not sure when I will fix mine.

    Has anyone in Canada got their Mirage and Grimlock pack yet? I preordered mine on the day it was announced and it was supposed to ship by July 7, but I got hit with the "we will email you when it's ready to ship". The same thing happened with the Conehead pack and I never got them. I feel like July is a little early but some people here already have theirs, so I still want to ask.

    The people that have them, got them due to them being in the east. Western PO's haven't been shipped.

    Ah thanks for the info. I ever since the Earthrise BS where half the line was exclusives which never got restocked, I've been paranoid that I'd miss out and have to deal with scalpers.

    I know how you feel, I missed out on the amazon exclusive Ratchet and Lifeline medic 2 pack.. I really really really wanted Ratchet too and damn amazon canceled my order on ship day for no fricken reason at all.. I am hoping and praying that Ratchet gets a re-release just his figure alone in like the Kingdom or Studio Series 86 line. Amazon pulled this same shit with the Cordon 2 pack where they canceled my order on ship day so I missed out ,but luckily I found another E-tailer who had them instock for MSRP!! Now I am racking my brain and pulling out all my hair trying to get my hands on a Wal-greens exclusive Kingdom Red-Alert!!
