@Quaternian I picked up this chest plate "replacement" thinking that it was ready to go without any additional work required, aside from the obvious of having to remove the screws and switch the arms over.
NOT EVEN CLOSE!
1) This piece doesn't have the molded support strut along the underside of each post, which is A NECESSITY to help create resistance and help support arm poseability in bot mode.
2) the posts themselves are too narrow, adding to the loose floppiness of the arms.
3) The holes for the screw insertion are too big, so there is NOTHING for the screw to bite into...not only do the screws not hold, they fall right out by themselves.
I've worked with this mold quite a bit, in addition to other customizations I've done, so this isn't a simple newbie fix type of issue. This is a faulty product issue, so I'm perplexed at the claim that this fixes the not-locking-chest issue, because the chest plate actually has to be able to attach in order for it to be able to lock...
So, my question is, how do we resolve this situation, because I feel like I've just paid for something that has no functional use, sort of like buying virtual sneakers, when what I ACTUALLY need are REAL sneakers. Know what I mean? Not trying to be rude, just illustrating my point.
The front chest sculpting is terrific, so I hope this can be rectified somehow...Otherwise, I'm back to square one. Thanks.
