    I know it's a little early, but has anyone experienced any QC issues with the BotCon 2012 exclusives? I just opened my Kick-Over, and he has two left arms. :(  I'm going to e-mail FunPub to see if I can get a replacement. Has anyone else had any QC issues?

    I know it's a long shot, but did anyone get a Kick-Over with two right arms and want to trade? :) 

    Mods, please feel free to move or delete if this is being discussed elsewhere. Thanks!

    Are you actually at the convention? If so, you can get it exchanged at the funpub table.

    Otherwise, you might be SOL. I've heard they're less accommodating once the show's over, or for people who bought the toys second hand.

    This is one reason why I opened every single set just to make sure. Sure enough my ultra Magnus was missing paint app on one of the thighs.

    the orange forearms are thesame for left and right, just swap out the black parts from a RTS Jazz.

    problem solved.

    Someone posted pictures of his SG Ultra Magnus in Battle Tanker armor, and one of his upper legs was missing a paint application.

    Thanks for the suggestions, all! I made the trip back out to BotCon and got a replacement arm. The guy working the station was really nice about it.

    It seems like there are a lot of issues with the Junkions. There were 3 guys in front of me who all needed parts swapped.

    What I've seen:

    Tracks - Chipped paint on raised roof
    Gigatron - Scratched face, bent sword handle
    SG Optimus Prime - missing paint on grill
    Spinster - Loose wing

    The rest are usually double hands

    I had a friend sell me their con set, and it arrived today. There were two big QC problems with mine. First, the paint on Metalhawk's face was awful. There was a chip in the chin, and the right eye was painted so that he was looking to the far right and the left eye was looking down. Second, Gigatron's lower legs pop off way to easy. They snap off right at the knee joint, so posing him is a problem. They snap right back in, but the left one pops out if you breath on it.

    My Road Rage has two left hands and really loose hips. Dead easy to fix, but still a bummer.

    It's sad because otherwise I think the new deco and the new head are awesome. Perfect hommage.

    I got my Iacon set today, the only QC issue was that my SG Ultra Magnus has two right hands. I plan on asking the club for a replacement but thought I'd see if anyone here has a Magnus with two left hands and maybe we can do the switch?

    i got my gigatron off ebay and sure as shit his tank sword handle was bent badly...

    used a match to heat it up...and bent it back...it is still a little crooked...i put him it robot mode and have both his hands holding it hear the bent part...so hopefully it will eventually go straight again.

    Didn't even notice my SG optimus was missing a paint app on his grill. Oh well, bought him off ebay so I consider myself lucky thats all. Doesn't really bother me and you can't see it in botmode anyways.

    All I've noticed so far is my Tracks has a bit of paint rubbed off of his roof and some silver paint from the wheel rims got onto the tires.

    Rubsigns: Ultra Magnus has one, Tracks and Treadshot do not. Is this normal?
