    found this poor bumblebee on the pegs tonight.. I guess it was too hard for jr to transform so they put it back on the shelve like this... probably the first of many..

    Yeah, one of the joys of toy hunting after Christmas is finding the numerous returned TFs back on the shelf that're mistransformed in mind-boggling ways. Srsly, I don't think I could mess them up that bad even if I tried.

    I saw a Voyager Megatron on the shelf that I think the kids or 'rents tried to transform into some sort of cyber-shoe.

    I'm the idiot who takes the time to transform them correctly and shove them back in the box to make them at least presentable.

    It drives me nuts to walk past a clearly messed up TF and just leave it sitting there.

    No...must fix it.

    One year I found a returned armada jetfire, that had been completely disassembled, and put back in the box. TRU had put it on sale for less that $2. I bought it, brought it out to my car, and had it popped back together in a minute or so. Everything was there expect for the batteries, which for 2 buck, really doesn't bug me.

    Ya know, I've gone to two different walmarts, and those guys just take anything back. The one by my house has an animated blitzwing. Its missing the cockpit... The walmart out by my dads house, yyeeeeaaa.. There was another blitzwing box with a movie cybertron thundercracker repaint in it.. I mean... LOOK @ THE FREAGGIN BOX!!! THE TOY DOESN'T EVEN LOOK REMOTELY SIMILAR!!! God, some poor kid could say "mommy I wanna get tfa blitzwing, heess sssooooooo cool, he's got 3 forms, and 3 faces!" Mommy comes home with the toy and poor little billy has the wrong fraggin figure! I mean common people, have a heart! Think of little billy for once..

    If it's a Bumblebee out of a wave 5 case, I can see a possibility as to why they couldn't transform it. My Stepbrother got one of the wave 5 Bumblebees and the joints are so tight it is almost impossible to transform. It was unbelievable when I compared the tightness to my Wave 1 Bumblebee. The Blurr and Swindle I got, along with his Blazing Lockdown, also had really tight joints, so I'm assuming it's a wave 5 thing.

    I do not own an Animated BB, but it cannot be that difficult to transform (even without the instructions.) It is a child's toy after all.

    He's not difficult, but his waist can get jammed up quite frequently preventing transformation back to car mode. Usually resetting him back into robot mode can unjam it.
