    After the 2nd time i buy a Generations Thundercracker it has the same problem as the first one did. The Wing's plastic is loose and floppy near the point of it's breaking off?

    I bought both Thundercrackers in the city of Watertown (where i am right now) (not at the same stores off course) and i only see one Thundercracker their in the entire town.

    Does anyone have QC problems with his floppy wings or are all Thundercracker have the same QC problems?


    It's a shame i keep getting crappy wings as Thundercracker has tight connectors with his null rays. His deco is awesome and so is his charecter.

    Mine is pretty perfect, and when my friend got his in the Wheeljack wave months ago, his is pretty perfect too. Might just be bad luck?

    The wings on mine are pretty floppy too. I am a little scared about it, but not too worried.

    I haven't had any problems with mine. It actually has the best quality of all the versions of that mold I own. I've heard other people say great things about the quality too, so unfortunately it sounds like you just had some bad luck.

    I got 2 of them - one for my son and one for me, and both of them is perfect. No problem at all.

    I thought so....The last time i kept getting QC's problems twice was with ROTF Skids and his unpainted teeth, the third time i bought it it had the painted teeth.

    I hope this curse breaks after the third one.

    Nope. Other than the slightly lopsided molding of one of his feet (that causes the hinge to be a bit "springy) that seems to be a common problem with this particular figure, the QC on mine is great. Actually, he's probably got the best QC all around, with sharp paint-apps, and all the joints being nice and tight.

    My Thundercracker is the best version of the Seeker mold I have. Joints are almost too tight. It's perfect. Sorry to hear about your bad luck, hope you get a good one third time dude!

    My TC has a floppy wing, so I'm very careful around it. No joke, I saw a TC in TRU a month ago with the wing broken off in package.

    Those whose Thundercracker aren't floppy how solid are his wing?

    Are they as solid as previous molds?
