    I found Deep Space Starscream at my local TRU and I was so excited and bought it right away. To my dismay when I opened him up the left leg fell off. Upon closer inspection, the joint holding the leg in place was completely worn out. I continued with his transformation, all the while reassuring myself that this kind of thing is normal and it’s nearly impossible to find a figure without any flaws. So about three quarters of the way through the transformation, I realised that the right arm can’t be connected to the body. I didn’t take it that hard because I’ve heard that this was a common problem and I had this problem with my G1 Redeco Starscream as well, so I was kinda prepared for it. Then I found the biggest defect of all and this one, I could not ignore: my figure has TWO left tailfins. When putting this figure together, some idiot in China must have thought it’d be funny to give someone two tailfins instead of a right and a left. So now I can’t complete his transformation to jet mode because he has a left tailfin where a right one should have been. I cannot express how incredibly disappointed and frustrated I am right now. I guess I’m gonna have to pay TRU a little visit again this weekend to exchange this piece of excrement for a (hopefully) better one.

    Everytime I buy a repaint it seems the quality is less than half of the original toy. One reason I rarely buy repaints.
