    Those of you with loose shoulders ASK XTB or your seller for a replacement. For me Bababobo00712 came through. New left arm is stiffer then the original right arm.

    Takes 5mins and done.

    Unscrew the hip screw to release the arm. Unscrew the wheel.
    Unlock the bicep, flip it out of the way. Unscrew the shoulder/bicep screw.
    Replace part.
    Screw everything back together.
    Done.

    Nope but I technically have a US address because New Zealand Post has an actually decent forwarding service (the only decent thing about them, it seems).

    Don't think I have the money for Skids at the moment though, unfortunately, otherwise I would have offered previously. Got just enough money for XTB Crackup from ShowZ but haven't decided if I'm in for those yet.

    Thanks anyway though.

    No problem. Know how it is with having to raise "figure $," lol. I often have to recycle by selling older figures to buy new ones I want more... :D

    I think I've run out of old figures I want to sell now. :( 
    Don't really want to say much publicly but things haven't gone particularly well this year, unfortunately. Hopefully next year, I can buy lots of toys. ;)

    Doug would be proud.

    I got a second copy I'm looking to sell. Straight from bababobo00712 and didn't even cut the bubble wrap. MISB $64 + shipping. PM me if you're interested.

    Edit: Sold.

    Damn, that sucks man. Hope next year goes better for you. I've got a buddy at work who collects too, and he hasn't had the best year either. We always bring our newest acquisitions in to show each other and I feel bad cuz I've been bringing in a lot more than he has. I sometimes worry that I'm like rubbing his face in it or something.

    He does have a full set of Dibots that I'm jealous of, though. I've just never been able to justify the price of those.

    I had no interest in this figure but a couple of days ago I watched a review and it actually looks really nice. Very G1 toon accurate, although I'm more familiar with the Marvel version. I liked the issues where he hung out with Charlene, but I can't justify spending so much money on an ancillary character that doesn't fit the rest of my collection.

    How hilarious and awesome would it be if they made a TFCon 2 pack of this mold in bright Green and Red like the eHobby reissue that homaged rotf Skids and Mudflap?
    I think I'd buy just out of pure stupidity of its existence.
    I'd also be into a black one with a more toy looking head.

    Noooooooo

    I swear I been having the worst luck these past few months. Figures keep breaking on me! (Ut prime, xtb wildrider) and not out hamfisted carelessness but just bad luck. Somehow I found my skids on the floor and his door busted off :T
    Time to ring up a replacement part!

    Got this guy for Christmas and put a logo on him. Hopefully tomorrow I can get him transformed and on the shelf. I love his alt mode and from everyone's pics I'm sure I'll enjoy the robot mode as well (minus the face lol)

    Because Japan is crowded as f and they tend to park up outside of city centres and use the bikes to get around, or something like that.

    Got my Savant today and he's pretty fantastic but that face is even worse in person. You have to question how that was ever signed off at the factory. Unacceptable really.

    Nope, he was barely in either. It's because that particular vehicle would come with something like that in reality. Just a nice little extra.
