    Why do I keep having all the "luck" So I broke down after frequenting every Target in a 20 mile radius daily and I ebay'd Space Case. I got him in today. Firstly I must say he's bigger than I anticipated, but who cares, I Love this mold and was dying to get one that wasn't orange. However, mine seems to have a manufacturing issue.

    Each leg has a small black circle with a grey piece attaching the wings. On one side I'd swear the grey piece was constructed backwards. Its an exact duplicate of the piece from the other side of the figure, when it seems like it should have been mirrored. The result is that it doesn't collapse all the way into the leg, and the leg cannot connect to the small tab where the foot should connect to the arms in jet mode. The wing still sits fairly correctly in jet mode, but its more fragile than it should be due to 2 other tabs not being able to lock into place. Is this an isolated issue with my figure, or is this on all of this mold?

    It's fine on my Terradive. Sounds like you got a lemon.

    Yeah. Both my versions of this mold are the way they should.

    My Space Case has them correct. Looks like you got a one-off error. That sucks too, since it came from ebay. You can try calling Hasbro - they'll send you a replacement, but they won't guarantee it will be the same figure - Only that it will be comparable :( .

    I just found him at one of the plethora of many Targets that are in my area. He doesn't have that problem (neither does my Terradive). Your best bet is to continue the hunt and find a replacement. Then return the defective one to Target.

    2 questions:
    1 - Did you get it in box or was it loose.
    2 - How much was it.

    Just wondering since if it was loose and overpriced, you were scammed.

    Well, Hasbro will want him to send in the broken Space Case and they will exchange is with a Tuner Skids, Mudflap or some other leftover ROTF figure.

    The literal two left feet (among other issues) on my Space Case points to the QC for this toy not being spectacular.
