    So I found Acidstorm the other day and wouldn't you know he has two left missle launchers. It's the Botcon 2007 set sin all over again. The funny part is I got both a boxed and a loose 2007 botcon set and had no issues with mismatched misssle launchers.

    I went back to the store tonight and the other two on the shelf were fine. So just as an FYI to everyone, take an extra moment to examine Acidstorm, when you find it, to make sure he's got the right missle launchers.

    In the package if you see blue facing up on the launcher it's wrong.

    Ironically, I actually checked mine before I bought it because I remembered the Botcon issues.

    Yup when you look at Acidstorm from the top down each missile launcher should have a fin that points towards the outside of the wings. Mine evidently had one pointing in towards the fuselage.

    As for me I'm keeping mine the way it is, it makes a nice footnote for my classics collection.

    Sin started with the original release of Classics Starscream.

    Had the same problem with mine. Never found another like it.
