    hi guys,

    couldn't find any immediate threads regarding this issue.... but has anyone encountered a leader-class ironhide that came without the knife?

    i just got mine fresh from amazon, and it was sealed and everything.... everything was there............. except for the knife....

    anyone encounter this or hear about something similar?

    thanks,

    Your Friendly Neighborhood Knockoff

    I assume it was just a random goof from the factory. Was it fulfilled by Amazon or another seller? Amazon will probably replace it if they have another in stock. If another seller sent it to you they might not be as easy to work with.

    I saw that movie today. Creeped the hell out of me.

    yep, the kids around my area keep stealing them out of the box. I actually had a kid show me at a wal-mart when I caught him trying to steal it.

    I made him put it back and watched with how much ease he was able to put it back where it came from.

    I came back like 2 days later and it was missing...again..

    contacted HTS Customer Service. boy, do those guys ever kick major arse!

    1. promised a replacement
    2. provided return shipping labels

    on a related note, i also purchased a springer while i was in taiwan. i was too excited to check at the time, but it came without missiles. (i know, it's a horrible month for me in terms of accessories, lol.) i asked if they'd be able to help me out considering my purchase was from north america. the lady apologized and said she couldn't help with that BUT because of my continued patronage to hasbro, they were sending me some coupons to spend on more toys.

    pretty neat :) 

    (thanks, jennifer!!!!!!)

    P.S. and the movie we are talking about is V/H/S - go watch it! the chick on my avatar is my gf :)

    So is the child who gets a toy and finds it missing pieces because some other kid pulled them out of the box. :/

    Never ship back an item to Hasbro, chances are they don't have a replacement, and they will ship you something of equal value. And with Ironhide being somewhat older now, chances are you will not get another Ironhide from them. Im sure they will send you a letter with the shipping labels and it will say something to that affect in it.

    Thanks, I was suspicious.

    Probably won't be able to see it until it hits DVD, but I am planning on seeing it ASAP.
