    Well, that's actually worse than the leg not fully extending on mine. Who'd you buy it through?

    BBTS is good about returns. They sent me a new alt when mine came with a broken mirror.

    Personally, I wouldn't complain or call it "crapy" over it missing 1 finger. If it was his whole hand or something, then I would say something about it.

    I bet they have scrap Skywarps just in case something like this happens... Shoot them an email and see if they'll send you a finger.

    From what I've heard of the QC of each release, it sounds that QC is about equal, if not a little better for Skywarp.

    I'm passing on the MP Skywarp...I already own 2 MP Starscreams, and I'm not really happy with the outcome of him, so buying another repaint of the mold for $100 bucks or more, doesnt appeal to me. The MP SS that Hasbro is going to be selling through Wal-Mart, I'll probably go for that one b/c I have friends that work at Wal Mart and id get a discount, plus I dont have to pay import prices, but I learned my lesson on the Screamer a year ago when I bought it. To each is own though.

    bbts is good with returns, they'll either give u store credit to keep it the way it is, or send ups or usps to come by and pick up the toy and exchange it for u. or just replace the part... when i bought sideshow mace windu, one of the pouches on the belt snapped off so they contacted sideshow and sent me a whole belt.

    Good to know. I'm going to wait for the Hasbro version of Starscream. At least if the mold is messed up it will be a little cheaper.

    Man, that sucks to hear. Hopefully Joel will hook you up and make your MP Skywarp complete! It really is a beautiful figure.

    BBTS hooked me up when Masterpiece Starscream was missing one of his guns. They sent me another one at no cost to me :D
