    What is the quality of your Prime like? I've gotten 1 at Ross and exchanged it for another one, but both has several problems. On mine the back flaps, which form the truck's sides are very very loose, and one pops out of its socket completely. Secondly, when forming the front and hood of the truck the arms do not remain connected. The forward most connections constantly pop out.

    I have the first ROTF Prime and have not had any of these problems. Is it normal or am I just unlucky twice? Should I buy one at Toys R Us/Wal-Mart/ Kmart?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I think its a little of both....you are a little unlucky and it also may be normal. I haven't opened mine simply because it is the same mold as ROTF except with battle damage that doesn't really look that great and hooks. Generally speaking I have always found with repaints/remolds, that the second or third (or fourth) versions are not quite as good as the original mold. Not sure how to explain it exactly, just that maybe over time the mold at the factory is just not as good after being used so much.

    No problems with mine either; if anything, it has tighter joints than the ROTF version.

    Mine has a tough time getting the hood flaps to clip together. I think that one of them isn't seating properly undr the cab section. Ughh, otherwise mine is in good shape.

    Debating exchanging him but it is getting harder to do that. It's that or take the x-acto to him. :/

    On mines the arm joint doesn't snug/snap in properly it was comes off, not a big issue though. I painted mines up a little, he's not done yet though. Haven't had time..
