    Got a few goodies the other day, the Animated Jet Twins, and a "fixed" Universe Onslaught, and there a a few minor QC questions I have, mainly if anyone else is having the same problems:

    Onslaught-

    The only problem is that the two blades on the front of his vehicle mode/his robot mode shoulders, don't want to stay in. They keep popping out, and I press them back in, but it is no use. Is it a matter of the shoulders being screwed together to tight?

    Jet Twins-

    Few problems. One, the front of the jet mode, when in robot mode, is floppy as hell. They hang off the back of the 'bots, but I can't get them to stop moving.

    Also, my Safeguard can't seem to get a hold of himself. (Haha.) He keeps splitting apart.

    Anyone else having these problems? Recommendations?

    I don't have that problem with my Onslaught, but he's not the "fixed" version.

    My Safeguard has the exact same problem. I finally just started displaying the twins by themselves instead of in the combined mode.

    i don't have the fixed version, but the fixed one has a loop on the siren so it just doesn't go woop! it goes woop, woop, woop, woop ans so on. The pegs on the light grey cages on his legs are longer to keep them in place better, and i think the "guns" on the top of the alt mode are longer.

    See peaughs pictoral review of safeguard for better ways to have the back of safeguard positioned so they are not floppy. and everyone is having a problem with safeguards crotch staying together.

    Ebay:
    My Safeguard stays together... provided he sits on a shelf and doesn't move much.

    If I pose him at he comes apart.
