When I'm at the store, browsing for Tformers (or any toy, for that matter), I inspect the toy through the plastic bubble, checking for scratches, and missing paint apps, and missing parts. In the case of Tformers, after I've opened and transformed the toy, I check to see if it has mold defects or missing paint apps, etc. I am really picky about this. The most recent example was with my ROTF Sideswipe. He has 4 horns on his head. The one right above his left eye was slightly misshapen, sagging down toward the back. This annoyed me so much that I went and bought a 2nd Sideswipe, swapped the heads, and returned it. Now, you might be wondering why I didn't just return the one with the sloppy head; but that one had minimal scratches in car mode, so I wanted to keep all of that.
