    Discussion in 'Transformers 3rd Party Discussion' started by Hyoumaru, Sep 16, 2016.Hyoumaru, Sep 16, 2016 # 1HyoumaruJet-StrikerJoined: Feb 24, 2014Posts: 555Trophy Points: 147Likes: + 176I've mentioned this before, The combination of Wizards and Megatron has been proven to be one of the most popular games on the market. I love the look of the X2Toys upgrade kit more than DX9's, so I went with that. I got it earlier in the year from an eBay seller, though it arrived with two of the same shin / foot pieces, which the seller sent a replacement for. For the longest time, I enjoyed it, combined with a shapeways cannon muzzle it was a really great looking Megatron.Then in June, there was trouble in Paradise. The DX9's or X2Toys' kits look great in tank mode. I then realized that EVERY piece of the upgrade kit had a crack or fracture on it in a vital spot, and if I kept manipulating them, they would likely break sooner or later. I thought to myself I should replace the upgrade kit, and it was then I discovered X2Toys did not produce a lot of this upgrade kit. Every Transformers outlet, aside from BBTS, which still has it listed as "pre-order". DX9's is plentiful and cheaper, but I still did not like the look enough to get it, so for a while it was a loss.Then around the start of September, I discovered TFsource had the item listed as Available again. Apprehensive, I wrote to TFsource first, asking about the kit's availability and if anything could be done in the event it was actually the kit being made out of shoddy plastic that would inevitably break sooner or later. They could not reply with much beyond & quot ;, which lead me to panic, buy one andhope for the best. The second kit, arived today, with the left shoulder upgrade, broken right out of the box, even if in a different place than my first kit.Is there anybody else who owns this upgrade kit that has had similar bad luck with it? I'm not sure if I'm more aggravated or just disappointed by it.
