    Yes, that's right. If you saw my recent article, I gave a very strong review to my new Cybertron Downshift. But what I didn't tell you in the review is that mine is an oddity.

    His left eye isn't painted.

    Now I've seen things like this before, like the Rodimus that showed up with an unpainted face, but this one just seems weird, why one eye would get painted and one left blank.

    Anyone elses Downshift lose an optic sensor?

    Rare awesome item! Give him an eye patch and say he lost it from touching it to much.

    Mine lost his headlights but unfortunatley he still owns both of his eyes.

    I agree with the eye patch, you can hook him up with Cannonball and yell YARR! at random people.

    My friend and our fellow poster Weirdwolf found Downshift and he was missing one of his headlights right out of the package.

    Mine was missing both headlights straight out of the package. Unfortunatley I threw said package away right away and hadn't noticed that the headlights we're gone until I saw a pic online and noticed that it indeed did look odd and was in fact supposed to have headlights. The two screws holding the front bumper on are loose which resulted in the headlights falling from the vehicle somewhere during manufacturing.

    I filled out an email form at Hasbro.com to see about getting it replaced or fixed through them but i have not heard back yet.
