    Does anyone ever experience defects on their Henkei?
    My Ramjet came with mis-assembled right hand (the black line on the inner side)

    Is not like I can't fix it myself, I just wondering if anyone have experience it?

    My Henkei Sunstreaker came with a scratch on the chrome spioler out the box. That's something I can't fix.:(

    My Henkei Cyclonus has a mis-shaped cockpit bracers. Fortunately I got two at the time and the other one is just fine.

    If you're referring to the Seeker mold, then its probably because the thing has been used upwards of 15 times now.

    the henkei skywarp and thundercracker have defects.

    skywarp the hole for peg on the wings are too tight, the arms are hole fit but they are kinda loose.

    thundercracker arm holes are very loose.

    Mirage has been used around 6 times. the mold went to hell fast, likely because it has a ton of small parts. universe dragstrip barely even fits together in it's alt mode.

    One of Mirage's legs was really loose right out of the package, but some screw tightening took care of that. Cyclonus on the other hand, is missing a couple of paint applications on his vehicle mode.

    My Henkei Ramjet came without the left chest/wheel. This was my first Henkei. The pin was in there, but not the molded part itself. Clearly an assembly error, so I sent it back and the online store supplied me a new Ramjet.

    I was kind of surprised by the assembly error, because in itself the Henkei's look like the epitome of attention to detail.

    I thought that both classics and henkei was fabricated and assembled in the same place by the same people. Am I wrong?

    dirge-one leg wont stay extended, ramjet-cockpit is coming off out of the package, skywarp-missing paint apps, thundercracker-shoulder holes to big for blasters. its kinda sad. But hey, they are just sitting on my shelf so no big deal.

    Yeah, a couple..... my Henkei Thundercracker has the same loose launcher problem as everyone else's.

    Also, my Henkei Dinobot came out of the package missing one of those little claw pieces that clips around his shins in robot mode.

    It's a little irksome, but it's not like quality control isn't an enduring problem with Transformers figures.... and there is no reason the Henkei line should be immune from it.
