    I finally found him and will be getting him soon but i have ques tion about the figure. Are there any other problems other than the tight hands?
    I dont want to break a figure on my first transformation.

    There have been some QC issues reported, such as loose joints. Other than that, none that I know of. He isn't the most complex figure to transform either, so I wouldn't be all that worried.

    the chin square is easy to break free, but it goes back on easily, but being so tiny i could imagine it being fairly hard to find

    Yes, there are problems with the hands. I bought three of them one for me and one for my son, then the purple one. The first one i got that ended up going to my son, i had the left hand rip off of him after a few transformations. I was so pissed i superglued and all kinds of crazy shit. Anyways, I bought another one and his hands were tight so i took a little screwdriver and loosened his wrist joints a little bit. I also did that with my purple shocky as well. No other problems than that.

    My only complaint is that Shockwave's neck seems to be a bit loose (on both my gray and purple versions), but apart from that's mine are very solid.

    Do watch out with the rubbery hands though, don't want to rip them off so turn them securely.
