Hey all!

Just wanted to know if it's only me or have you also foun d things that are wither nitpickingly annoying or scarily nervewracking, or just outright wrong with your new figures?

The most blatant one I've experienced lately is today, when I bought Turbo Tracks and Special Ops Jazz. I found Jazz's left foot to be near impossible to get sliding into place (It eventually did let go, but I was honestly scared I was going to have to break the hinge in order to get the plastic to let go of it's close quarters) and the "4" emblem on his car hood doesn;t line up properly...It is slightly off kilter from it's other half and there's literally nothing I can do to adjust or fix it short of buying another figure :-P But even worse, my Tracks has TWO left hands! I'm not sure if this was a production error or what...Thaty, and his RtS emblem is way off center, and to the right of his hood/chest. Not a huge deal, but annoying nonetheless.

So how about you, my fellow Plastic Crack addicts? Got any stories, gripes, or outright complaints to let fly on here?

Stress marks on the circular door hinges on Perceptor (for the lack of a better term). Thus far, the quality control isn't great on my RtS Tracks, but really the only consistent problem is the crooked faction symbols, but that is not a serious problem.

I don't think found and Reveal the Shield go together in the same sentence.

I have had a few small QC issues with Generations/RTS, but honestly nothing nearly as bad as the first movie, or any of Animated. I don't think I have a single Animated figure that wasn't floppy, broken, stressed, or marred fresh from the package. I thought my Animated Blurr was my best Ani figure, but some of his light blue paint apps are slightly smeary, not as bad as Classics Prowl's white, but it's getting worse over time, even just sitting on the shelf.

My RTS Rodimus actually has better QC than my original Classics one. I make jokes about Arcee leaving him because he's so limp-wristed. icon-waspy.gif

My Jazz had two right hands, I was able to take him back and get him swapped though!
