    I didn't see any others

    First, are they worth anything?

    Second, list yours transformer's defects!
    Mine is ROTF Mindwipe's head doesn't have any paint and scalpels lower arm doesn't stay on AT ALL. Also, Energon sixshot and Ultimate Bumblebee's missiles doesn't

    usually they are worth very little as most collectors want them defect free.

    It's a myth that deformities add any value to a figure, mostly it lowers their value.

    I'm usually pretty picky at the store so there's not many defects to speak of in my collection. Most are universal ones like the busted knees on Cybertron Red Alert or loose kibble on Classics Astrotrain's arms.

    It'd have to be way defective, like not painted at all, and even then it'd only be valuable to someone who's into that stuff. A defect collector, or extreme fan of the character.

    My Uni. Inferno has a face paint slip-up, I think the paint didn't cure right on one side so it looks like he has robo acne.

    I could easily fix it, but I haven't because it's only noticeable up close, and I'm actually pretty sure that screw-up is WHY I even have the figure (it was quite clearly a returned figure, but outside of the face issue the paint apps were sharp and strong. The figure was packaged all crazy like, though, and the box itself looked all beat to hell).

    They aren't worth very much, sorry.

    My '07 Movie '77 Camaro Bee hood wouldn't stay off. It pissed me off because I spent ALL F*CKING DAY looking for it and it was broken.

    F*ck me. Anyways, ROTF Lockdown's arm falls off without any effort AT ALL. Sucks.

    So does mine, but I didn't mention it because I think it's been around since the mold was originaly released as Storm Jet.

    Ebay:
    I have a couple, and I keep them for the novelty value :D 
    My ROTF deluxe Soundwave came with two left hips, preventing him from transforming properly.
    My Alternators Meister's visor is glued on upside down, and his headlight was loose and fell off (glued it back on without a problem)

    I was lucky when it came to paint applications.
