    I just picked up the latest wave of Cybertron Deluxes at Target, and as I was opening the figures, I remembered I was going to have to fix Optimus's arms just like I did for BiaB Ultra Magnus. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were assembled correctly. Now have others that have purchased this figure had their's assembled correctly or were they misassembled like the one at Remy's World?
    Below is a picture of mine fresh out of the box.
    Note, mine also has some white paint on the shoulders that Remy's doesn't.

    Mine was assembled wrong. I had to do the BiaB Ultra Magnus fix on him.

    It helps to check out the feedback forum for new figures from time to time. Look here:

    Mine has the corrected arms and the white paint apps you mentioned as well. It seems Remy got part of an initially flawed run.

    I think the one that Chaos Muffin got had the messed up arms. So is it a running change then?

    I purchased mine today, and the arms are misassembled. I'll need to do the fix, same as I did for UM. Running change, I suppose.

    I saw two in stores today, with correct arms, but I passed because they had sloppy paint jobs and scratches all over the plastic.

    Wish I would have checked the one I saw today. I left it behind also because of some sloppy paint apps, but I forgot to check the arm assembly.
