    Just a heads up to anyone (and curious if anyone else has this issue). With DotM Shockwave, the way his arms peg on in vehicle mode, on the first gray bit after the shoulder joint there's that peg that goes into a slot just below the shoulder joint on the purple section. It's all fine on his right arm, but on his left, the one with the blade, the peg is on the wrong side, it's pointing up and away from the slot instead of being on the proper side to peg in so there's no way to completely secure his arm. Anyone else have this issue?

    Mine is fine. It sounds like you got a bum one.

    Yeah, it looks like I got 2 right ones instead of a right and a left or something.

    Mine doesn't have a defect like that. Sorry to say this but it looks like you just got a defected individual piece.

    Mostly because there are a shit ton more people buying the toys and actively discussing them on the boards. I'm still fairly convinced that the actual percentage of issues is about the same as ever, but it seems like more. Due to more fans and more discussions, and also larger numbers of toys being made.

    ^I dunno, I've seen errors on the rise just within the last couple years even.

    Animated was hell because I loved the line but so many figures had loose joints out the ass.
