    I just got a leader hftd starscream today and i realized after transforming it back to robot mode that one of the tabs wouldn't lock in and that the arm tabs were broken. Anyone have a fix to this or have this happen? I'm hoping it was just a weird problem with that one. Because it's still a really fun figure and don't want this to be common.

    If you're talking about the thick gray ones that tab into his shoulder, then I'll have you know that mine are still sturdy after dozens of transformations.

    pics would be helpful.

    mine's only problem is that his left knee ratchet isn't working, so i have hardened the screw to compansate. i guess it's a common problem.

    haha, send it to hasbro? you will get a different leader class figure back, i wouldn't chance it, return it to the store or you'll end up with a shadowblade megs or something

    they state that they will return an item of comparable value,

    Yeah, don't send it to Hasbro. You'll get screwed. Take it back to the store for a refund or exchange.

    Also, mine has a broken tab on that spot, right arm.
