oh that's a relief, thanks!
That one should be fine in the long run. It’s the most common crack and actually makes the transformation smoother. That panel is in no danger of actually breaking off.
near one of the hinges like most people's scourges, hoping it won't get worse and actually break off
Where did it crack?
just got scourge and got a crack after transforming him once. Has anyone else with cracked scourges had this worsen or is the small crack as bad as it'll get?
for that price, it should NOT partsform, or include WAY more, just not worth it as it is
this upgrade kit just singlehandedly convinced me to go in on the studio series terrorcons, so very nice job there lol
mine did, but it was mainly because i was an idiot and mistransformed it in a way that made the clear plastic border around the hinge crack, otherwise it's remained A-okay
He won't, the clear plastic is sturdier than the stolen copies, so while they will stress so far I don't think anyone's has outright snapped
You can keep the head and upper legs pieces while transforming, other pieces need to come off.
Reading all these has me really worried for the one I ordered from BBTS, hopefully he comes without any of these damaged parts.
The question is how much of that needs to come off for transformation?
As a person with multiple fractures on his copy, I can attest that he can take the abuse of transformation. It fractures from the stress but nothing actually breaks off. Everything is still fully intact and functional. (The orange plastic on mine was fractured right out of the box.)
Personal experience, be careful of the side window hinges, one on mine cracked after the first transformation.
I didn’t do anything specific. Definitely was aware of the weak points of the design based on early comments so held those panels carefully and went slow the first few times. I honestly think a lot of the issues are based on how well the pins were fired in.
Really ? I'm scared to transform mine lol, would you recommend filing certain areas so that the backpack rotation is looser and less solid to avoid cracking ?

That’s when you wait for a sale then get it, and get the upgrade kit as well. It what I’ll do.
Here’s hoping they even do one.
I’m happy to say that my copy has no issues thus far, and I’ve transformed it a few dozen times so far. Hope it stays that way.
The head and gas tanks are OK. The rest looks pretty bad to me
