    And I thought I was unlucky (my Screamer was the only figure they had not from the movie line), mine is missing his right hand (contacted customer support, hope that helps...). But damn, two figures, and no head. Third time's the charm..hopefully.

    Mine's head wasn't attached. Check the box, make double sure it didn't roll out when you opened it and is under a couch or behind a table leg.


    In the mean time, return the two you have, or keep one for good measure until you find a new one.

    Dude, you're doing it wrong.

    Stop buying them on the internets, and just wait for retail. Then buy a guaranteed headed one.

    Between this and the other complaints I've heard on other boards, I'd say this is widespread (given the small number of figures released so far). I think I counted like eight different reports.

    I got mine from the Cinci test market, and fortunately he had his head, and it was fully intact. I got lucky, I'm sorry to all of you who weren't. :(  I really am.

    Like it was said, check the box, there's a good chance it's in there and you missed it. Here's the thing, the head's connection is pretty tight (that's one stiff ball joint) so for it to pop out of the body (especially with the figure transformed to alt mode (which would hold the head in) makes it sound like Hasbro's workers have been throwing them in the box and hoping for the best.

    QC this time around has been spotty, at best. Some of us got a really nice case of good luck, others...not so much.
