    I just bought classics Bumblebee. I really like him, but it seems european versions are littered with QC issues. First my classics Rody has loose hip joints that connect his legs to the groin, now BB has somewhat loose hip balljoints. Is this the norm for euro versions or did I got shafted?? (actually it ain't that bad, but I already returned the other leftover BB because he was missing his left headlight).

    To bad BB comes with no weapons.

    My Euro BB is fine, and the Q.C. on the first first run of Classics DXs made for the U.S. was rather sub par too.

    Well, there are some bad paint aps, and his legs do hold their pose when I lift him, it's just I'm used to uber or pretty tight joints.
    Here he is with his weapons I gave him:

    My BB came from about the second US run...all joints were good except the loose swivel just below his knee...which really isn't that big of a deal...

    I guess you could either tighten whatever screw-based joints there are on him and use the superglue trick on the remaining ball joints.

    Don't you have the PRIME/MEGATRON 2-pack? I only bought this set for the tank MEGATRON so PRIME's gun is spare and perfect for BUMBLEBEE.

    Nothing is ever perfect!!


    I'll do that when I find time. Him and Rody too.


    Nope. My country only got SS, BB and Rodimus for classics line.
