    yup, saw some tfa and tfu legends 3/5-packs with "missing" arms/feet/legs. they actually fell to the bottom. just shake the box a bit, they'll surface.

    Mine was a returned figure so it doesn't really count.

    it happens, and not just in the factories. stuff gets chucked around when it's being delivered, or stacked under heavy objects, or broken by clumsy shoppers knocking them off the shelves.

    it's normally just the balljoints that pop, so you can usually just pop them back on. don't think i've ever bought a TF that was actually broken broken.

    I haven't seen any toys that I noticed were broken, but the last model train car I bought, I noticed had broken couplers. This didn't bother me too much, since I always clip those off, and replace them with better ones, and the thing was marked down, a good amount. Unfortunately, when I got it home, I found out that one of the trucks was broken, and wouldn't hold one wheelset.

    Luckily, N scale model railroad parts aren't too horribly expensive.

    I saw a Leader Bulkhead at Kmart today with the top of his head lopped off. I laughed so hard though because the way he's packaged his buzz-saw hand is right next to his head. Instant lobotomy!
