    I just saw a post from Baidu, it seems to me the poster bought this cheap version and the quality is on-par with Locke, pretty much wherever he touched, then that part broke.

    Ok, now I'm starting to get scared, maybe it's better if I write directly to Show.z in their thread. Anyway, does Deathwish have LEDs in the headlights??? :eek:  Do the other Berserkars have them too?

    Deadend has led lights. The only other figure with lights is monolith’s eyes

    ... lights that in the knockoff version is better don't replace their battery to avoid a "Rapid Unplanned Disassembly" :D

    If it's really Locke's quality, then it's basically garbage, especially when XTB said no aftersale support. I won't buy it for sure.

    Hope that turns out to be true (that the quality is OK) and yours is good! Didnt go that way for the guy above on Baidu! One has to wonder - why does the factory suddenly have a batch sitting in their warehouse they didn't ship before? Maybe a rejected batch?

    Miss Zou hooked me up with a hip replacement for Deathwish and a new gun for Overheat. 7 bucks for shipping. Same day response!

    Miss Zou is awesome to work with, which reminds me, I need to see if I can get a new eyepiece for Toro, took it out to paint it and it flipped off my tweezers and disappeared into oblivion.

    Probably. Just like Boost, had a defect batch & move them cheap "as-is"

    Are the eyes cast in translucent plastic? The LED bulb works on mine, but the paint on the eyepiece is opaque, so light-up feature is 100% pointless.

    This thing is absolutely the biggest pain in the arse I've ever owned. It's constructed from frustration and angst. Looks great as a robot, but I'm in day six of converting back to trailer for storage.

    So that means there is aftersale support after all.....either by ShowZ (if you bought it there) or directly from XTB. Notice that ShowZ has now removed the wording about XTB not offering aftersale support. I'm thinking the bad quality versions were limited to only a few copies.

    I've never seen any of these warnings on the ShowZ page, are you sure it wasn't on the TFs Express post?

    Back when everybody got the trailer, and then 3 hours later combined it, I am amazed that with the not so strong hip ratchets, the combiner has held up well.

    the tightness of the knee joints and the tightness of the back and forward movement helps

    Just a reminder to anyone who is having trouble posing Monolith I have these custom 3d printed pieces to aid in the stability of this combiner. Also make sure you tighten up the screws in the ankle area as they work loose as you rock the joints.

    20210409_130859.jpg 20210409_130913.jpg Seriously WTF is wrong with XTB. I have diminished desire to even try and correct this.
    I think I'm done with them and probably collecting. Wait forever and get busted shit and wait some more.

    The part was missing or did it broke?
