    i ran across KO TFA Swoop figs but didn't order because the colors looked icky to me. but i wonder if those KO dudes actually fixed the QC issues with the original TFA Swoop.

    anyone know and does that make it frustrating for you loyal Hasbro consumers?

    I understand how you feel. I was at a local flea mart in my country and I saw KO G1 reissues and some of the quality look amazing!

    The best/worse was G1 Reflector. It looks so identical to to original, size, sculpt etc! Shockwave was also an eye opener for me also! If a Chinese bootleg company can make such close copies of the original, I don't see how Hasbro or TakaraTomy can't! Come on HasTak - repair or reissue them (Dinobots and G1 cars) and give us the REAL deal! :(

    they can, they just choose not to. they concentrate on characters they know will make them money

    I wasn't aware of QC issues with TFA Swoop (then again, I wasn't on the boards a lot when I bought him). What is the matter with him? Mine seems just fine, but maybe I'm over-looking something?
