    Picked up the Ice Cream Twins and animated Blurr and toys r us today which surprised me to find them both there

    Anywho, it was the first time I returned a toy today cause of the latch on skids was broken so the hood wouldn't stay down

    After I got home I realized that Blurr must have been a return as he has tons of scratches on his chest and some brown stains on him as well
    I just don't understand why they'd take back, let alone put back out, a toy that was not defective but just damaged by someone.

    I guess it was about time, in all my years of collecting I have never gotten a faulty or misbuilt transformer which was nice

    I remember seeing a ROTF Arcee returned, that managed to make it to the pegs. It had no inside bubble, it literally looked like it was in about 10 pieces just sitting in the bottom of the bubble.

    Probably slipped through the cracks in the post-xmas return rush.

    Was it broken or was the latch just pushed down? It's a little tight, but it's suppose to pull up to lock the hood down.

    Yeah, the toy most likely wasn't broken. Most people just don't know how to situate the hood/hood ornament.

    The blurr sounds jacked though.

    I'm waiting for someone to post the block of wood in the TF box about now, lol

    I hate getting something that has been returned, back in RID, I found a Wideload, first one I had seen and got it, didn't notice it had been taped with packing tape, and returned I was so excited, got it home and one of the pegs that held the combined mode together was broken off, I had a fit.

    Just assume they were coffee stains. It makes me feel better.

    No, it was actually broken the part that hooks onto the hood wasn't there. It was just a flat piece
