Warbotron (Combined mode) pt1 Just like a kid waking up on b-day and your parents drop the biggest toy you've been eye balling for months. Yup that's how I felt when fierce attack arrived on my door step everyone. Now with the happy introduction is out of the way let us get to the review. Bad: I am going to start with inspection and combine mode pt1 first. • Ankle tilts: Right of the bat I tested the ankle tilts and rockers first. Unfortunately on the first high pitch squeak it snapped clean. Furthermore I find it 'very' odd Warbotron will have ankle tilts in the inside instead of the outside. • Replaceable plastic: In the bag there's two extra translucent thin pieces of plastic, just in case one of them or both break (complete eye roller). • Investigating: To replace the plastic piece for the ankle tilt. I find out the screws were screwed in way too tight. This nothing more than human neglect here. When you have a thin piece of anything never, ever screw in the screw too tight. This is why the plastic broke so easily Lack of grease, oil and stress on plastic This was running 'neglect' reel people. This goads me to do full inspection, to get this out of my system I did more inspection than playing with him. • Lack of grease and Oil: A god ninety five percent of fierce attack is not greased properly. The upper bicep swivel I had grease down immediately. His knee joint slightly too stiff to move had to grease that down too. In addition the connector pegs and ports on heavy noisy and sly strike needed some lube too. As for the insides of the feet, hell yes the dry plastic made me sick to my stomach. Another 'major' issue is the freaking shoulders. At this time I am like 'goddamn' did occur to anyone on the Warbotron team to be like...'Hey alot is riding on this figure, we might as well go all out on the oil and greasing down important parts. On that note I can't find a way to disassemble the shoulders to give them proper oil treatment. • Stress on Plastic: This is the stigma about Warbotron stress on plastic is scary areas. After handling Warbotron (treatment wise) I kept finding stress on plastic on the figure. Can anyone tell me what is up with Warbotron and stress on plastic. No offense to the company, but I must say this. Warbotron has had two full years to make fierce attack the perfect error free combiner ever. From inspection and attention to detail on my Warbotron fierce attack, it looks like he was rushed. The wrongness I see in the shoulders that makes Warbotrons' massive upper body. Hypothetically I believe more time should have been spent on making it impossible plastic to break no stress marks and add long life expectancy of the figures internal mechanics. Dreadful reality, if replacement parts for Warbotron do not include extra shoulder pieces expect to buy another fierce attack in the future. To be clear I am one of the collectors that displays betwixt mess around with my collection for time to time. I don't want to have, any day now I am going to have to buy another figure looming over my head. Connector pen gave out: The connector pen on the left leg gave out on me when I was transforming and combining Warbotron over and over again to break in the plastic. I contacted BBTS and told them about this issue. Fortunately replacement parts are coming in 2 to the weeks. My issues is the pen that needs to be replace, also informed BBTS the following • Shoulder issue: Will I get replacement parts for them? Cause I don't want to spend another 124 for another fierce attack. Good news is everyone should get one. But I have no idea what's going to be in the box or bag it comes in. Good: There's a lot of good about Warbotron in my first combine mode review. Despite the snapped pen in the left connector it does not hinder Warbotrons' over qualified stability to hold poses! Furthermore he's one monolithic, detailed and proportionate. Also the furniture grip that comes with fierce attack for Warbos feet adds to his outstanding stability on any surface. If I were you I would put them on his feet to be absolute on him standing on your desk or display case. When I combined him for the first time, he held an acquired pose and get this, He didn't move at all! Posing: In a nut shell Warbotron is one huge action figure combiner. He's more stable than feral rex and Prometheus. When I took pictures of him earlier, me handling him was almost next to nothing. Quick clarification get his feet down on something Warbotron is not going anywhere period! Unfortunately no dynamic pictures for Warbotron now, but I am still researching poses for him to pull off. Scale of 1-10: Getting this out the way, besides people want to know how he scales against my other combiners I have reviewed on the boards so far. I am giving Warbotron an honest 9.5, he's far from a ten. I have already mentioned the issues already. However Warbotron has it where it counts also still holding together despite a snapped pen in his leg. More so the detail on the figure is truly homage to Bruticus. Warbotron confirmation owning up their neglect, I can forgive them this time around. If anyone on the Warbotron staff reading this review, I am being honest, not ripping on you just telling the truth.
