When building older kits (this having originally been released in 2010-2011), I'm generally more forgiving of any flaws or issues—whether in articulation, colour accuracy, the amount of accessories, etc.—so while I noticed there some fitment issues & limited articulation while building this, I accepted it and happily carried on...
...until it came time to stick the full set of weapons (what makes it the 'Red Shoulder Custom' version to begin with) onto the kit. It was only then that I realised—there were no holes, no locations on the Scopedog's body or back of the forearms for the pegs on the weapons to go.
I dug through the runners, trying to see if I used an incorrect part, but save for the alternate hands, wrist adapters, couple of polycaps and the other standard green shoulder—there simply weren't any
The manual's diagrams assume the holes were there all along, and at no point made any indication that those needed to be done manually with a pin vise (which I don't have)—this is ostensibly a snap-build kit, not the type to normally require extra tools
I can only chalk it up to manufacturer error, potentially accidentally swapped with the basic/another variant of the Scopedog's version of the runner(s)
Overall, it looks sick, I had fun building it (up until that confusion), and am glad to have it—but I do not think I'll be dabbling in more Wave Corp. kits
