Got my Micromasters in the mail this evening from HTS.
Oh my lord, the tolerances on these guys. I have yet to transform Stormcloud, Roadhandler or Swindler without one or more limbs popping off. Swindler won't snap together in car mode (one arm refuses to peg into place), and likewise one of Stormcloud's legs won't stay in its assigned jet-mode peg. Roadhandler required some excess force to get his car mode snapped together right.
It's a disappointing start to a part of STEGE that I was really looking forward to.
(also, doesn't ANYBODY do non-video toy reviews anymore?? I don't want to look at your face, hear your voice, listen to your stock intro chatter, or watch your hands fuddering about with the toy for ten minutes. I just want to read and see a few photos... which incidentally would also be a lot less work for you!)
ETA: looks like I got a genuinely defective Swindler. One of the car-hood pegs is twisted so it's about 45 degrees out of square from where it should be. [insert joke about getting swindled here.] Wondering how much heat it would take to make the plastic pliable and twist it back into place...
ETA2: I can't look at Stormcloud without seeing him staring at his arm-stumps like he just got his hands chopped off by a lightsaber.

Robert is made to withstand plenty of play, and transforms from car to robot! Go, Robert, go!
Why will we solve after Robert grasps the abysmal winter's ulcer? He may change rural tailors, do you join them? The films, tapes, and spoons
are all good and fresh.
