    Just curious. For me, it's varied. My largest concern is that a lot of figures I've picked up have incredibly loose ball joints that often love to pop off. The fact that the MechTech devices often attach to said floppy parts doesn't help much. Other than that, it's been pretty good. Nothing's broken on me yet, and the paint jobs have been acceptable.

    How about you?

    Just have one figure so far, but it's perfect in the QC category. From browsing the feedback threads the most I saw was some floppy joints in some figures, and one dude whose Optimus had a shattered wrist.

    Seems like the usual so far.

    My Powerglide and Backfire are thumbs up quality wise, no mold defects or anything.

    Crankcase seems pretty good, excellent paint apps. His left leg balljoint is a little loose so I put a layer of super glue over it and it's fine now.

    Just a right shoulder that liked to pop off on the first Bumblebee I got, that's it.

    I've noticed that they're smaller figures with semi loose ball joints, but dang are they cool and I'm actually really liking the six I got and the mech tech gimmicks, love slapping two or more weapons together at will.

    Megatron's arm cannon peg is really loose in the hole on his arm... Other than that, Cyberverse Ironhide and Blackout are loose.

    my only complaint is with my Skyhammer the joints for his wrists are a little loose. I may have to pop them out and give them the superglue treatment.

    My takara voyager Megatron's windshield has one side sticking out more then the other one, also his thigh joints are slightly loose. Every other figure is good so far though.

    My Roadbuster has a weak peg for the torso and floppy shoulders, as well as weak MechTech ports (arms won't support it anyway). My Sentinel Prime's right shoulder doesn't peg in very well, and Crankcase's ball joints come off often, but not too bad. Megatron has no problems.

    That window is supposed to be like that, look at the cyberverse figure and you'll notice it's the same. It's in the design for some reason.

    I've had no real problems with Voyager Ironhide & Megatron, but damn all 3 of my Cyberverse figures (Sentinel, Blackout, Ironhide) have the loosest ball joints I've seen in awhile. Fortunately that's a simple fix.

    Yeah, that got me, too. I kept thinking I popped it out until I looked closely and it's just supposed to be that way.

    The Autobot logo shoulder pad on my Roadbuster keeps on wanting to come off. Oddly the left side version is just perfect.
