    I’ve been folding Overheat’s hood in towards his back, the way the hinge freely moves without risking breaking it. Yes it does leave his backpack slightly out and little loose as opposed to being rather locked in with it not in that position. But the trade of for me is a slightly loose backpack but an unbroken hinge.
    He’s currently in alt mode but I’ll take a pic when he’s back in bot mode to show that the backpack is not that far out from it’s intended position. It may be the answer for those that simply don't want risk breaking their figure nor modifying their figure to get the hinge to work per the instructions.

    Great-looking figure. Too bad my copy's already breaking. Not sure if it came this way or if it started cracking when I moved the arms. I haven't even attempted to move the hood. I definitely regret pre-ordering this. It's way too fragile to withstand multiple transformations. I went in on this set solely for combined mode but now I'm afraid to change him back.

    Who's the odd one out?

    I really wished that they would have chosen the same box size for Flipout as for the others.
    This is something that I really like about Takara MPs. They stick to a pretty limited set of box sizes which makes them easier to store and nices to display.

    I'm Wondering if removing the tire from the figure before transformation will help with the shoulder\ tire clearance issues?

    I’m sorry to hear about people having issues with this figure breaking. Makes me nervous to even transform mine, once I get back home. Like you, I mostly wanted this set for the combined mode, but I was hoping to at least get a couple pics of all of them in their individual robot modes before transforming them all back into cars so I can eventually combine them.

    Ok, so Overheat is a flawed figure with breakage points in the hood and shoulder. Continue to report these occurrences so that ibot can ensure to make corrective measures in the next batch.

    Doesn't sound like there's any significant issues with Deathwish though, so 1 out of 2 ain't bad.

    Considering its the 4th release in a set of 5 and was delayed release by an extra month and a bit I'm sure I'm not the only one who would of hoped the release of overheat would be free from such major problems, hoping this doesn't set back gravestone too much. And I agree every problem needs to be reported to
    x-tansbots to be fixed.

    Haven't a couple people sheared his feet off at the ankle during transformations? Possibly same overall type of failure - weak materials for too thin a load-bearing joint.

    Over in the MP appreciation thread, I shared my pic of Rumble driving Overheat and I was challenged to do a pic with another MP figure with bonus points if it were a combiner. Challenge accepted.

    [​IMG]

    Rumble isn't very happy about what happened to his ride.

    I've also got my Overheat and Deathwish on hold with TFS-Express in order to ship together. But I've already paid postage on Deathwish.

    Do I need to do anything else in order for them to ship?
