    Correction; I just re-read the email and it said "could be coming out." And they are not restocking the individual bots. So....f me.... it looks like I'm going to have just part of this set if/when they ever restock.

    If they release a box set with a new head and chest plate then they're fucking themselves over for anything they do after Superion as ppl are already balls deep into that set.

    I figured it out. I took off the head/plate and the knee attached without an issue. (I only had to remove the 2 top screws and then loosen the 2 waist screws and I could pull the chest apart to remove the plate.)

    Then I checked the manual and they put the plate for the head on backwards. Now the side pegs are warped and have some serious stress marks, but the combine action works! Thanks all for the help.

    So when people are saying they want a new combined head, do they mean that new one that Zeta released in China (as far as I know?) or like one from the toon where it shows a close-up of his face? There's something about them, maybe the proportions, that makes me view them as two completely different aesthetics.

    I leave it home, standing on the floor, I came back, and I saw this thing lying on the floor with the peg stretched like this and swindle across from it. We can all fill in the blanks here...

    I've been a pretty big defender of Zeta but that is inexcusable. We can all agree the knees could be better. the fact that they broke at a major connection point is crazy. I hope it's an isolated incident and not widespread.

    I want the new Zeta combined head but if you were to create the one from the toon pic you shared...I wouldn't complain.

    I've got a prototype in the works, but I'm waiting to do the big reveal until after I've finished my commissions and gotten more of my Elita-1 sets shipped out.

    My Blitzkrieg finally arrived, and three days ahead of the scheduled delivery date at that! Thanks @ToyDojo

    Letting him warm up to room temp before messing with him, as the pretty cold right now. Can't wait to mess around with him on his own and then on to combined mode.

    Maybe melting it back in with a soldering iron will work in this case if you aren't getting a replacement part.
