    I noticed this on my animated Grimlock. Where his arms are attached to chest halves. Are there supposed to be pins inside holding the chest halves on? only one side has a pin on mine. I noticed when the chest half popped off and I looked at the other side and it appears there is a pin holding that one in. Just something I noticed thought I might share it. :O)

    In dino mode I see two pins on the dino chest plate with the black thing inbetween. I think that's what she was referring to...

    Well, if there's supposed to be a pin there, then yea, that would explain why my pre release wings kept falling off :)  They stay on okay with just snappingon and friction, but yeah, a pin would be nice.

    Edit: Although looking at my release version, there ARE no pins. There are some small plastic posts on the black piece that the wings snap onto, but no pins, and it doesn't even look like it was DESIGNED to hold a pin, Can anyone confirm that they have an actual pin at that joint?

    If we're talking grimmy's wing panels,
    my store release version has no pins.
    The wing pieces have hole in them for a pin,
    but the stem they attach to has no hole.
    Maybe adding a pin is a running change.

    Another weird decison from your friends at hasbro.
    At least we don't have to repair this one ourselves.
