    i just wanted to know if i was the only one.

    i bought an alt prime and noticed that the autobot insignia on the left arm was inverted.

    ohi dunno if this one's a mistake but i had an alt subaru silverstreak which had the drivers seat on the otherside like a BT.

    Was it a widespread QC error that Armada Prime's electronics stopped working? The batteries were fine, then the next day the functions stopped working. It was when I was 7, though, so it might've been me...

    So far, nothing's been wrong, though my Movie Dreadwing had a mis-aligned tailfin

    very few of my hasbro TFs have mistakes (takara rules supereme in that category). My first armada hotshot didnt have any paint on his head, my classics ultra magnus is missing the yellow spots on the left side of his waist, and armada prime has an odd red spot on the side of his mouth plate. that's all I can remember.

    someone here got a classics ramjet without a face.

    Headlight stickers upside-down on re-issue G1 Red Alert (apparently a very widespread problem).

    Classic 2-pack Megs' backward feet.

    Red G1 Bumblebee.

    When I found the only red-box Alt Tracks available in my area, I discovered that the mirrors were the same way...2 passenger side mirrors.

    My first Cybertron Downshift had only one eye painted. The replacement had two left fists, so I merged the two for one good one and one stinker.

    My Cybertron bendy Prime had no paint on his faceplate.

    I also just returned a Robot Replicas Frenzy who didn't have his shuriken in the package.

    I also count a remold on the X-Wing SWTF who's pelvis section doesn't have balljoints or swivel up to look right.

    08 BB's heels were on the wrong foot. I noticed one heel wouldn't come all the way down. On the bottom there is an R one one heel and an L on the other. These were reversed on mine, so I unscrewed the feet and switched them to the proper foot. Now they work just fine.

    I've noticed that as well on a couple of the ones I own and also on the Target two pack. It's clearly labeled L and R. I hadn't switched them, though.

    heels arent supposed to come down. with those yellow pieces pointing up the way they are, it's accurate to the movie design.

    My Movie Arcee had the wrong tires on the back. My Classics Astrotrain had two left arms. I think I'm forgetting another one I had...

    My Movie Voyager Blackout's torso part (with the head and legs) wasn't jointed with the shoulder portion. Thank Primus I could force the two together, though I almost ended up with the connector piece braking apart. Oh yeah, and his right eye has too much paint on it, makes him look like he's half-blind or something.

    ...

    And his right arm is flimsy, no matter how tight the screw is.
