    Just now, I was sitting here at the computer in my room when I heard a "Ping" and something fall onto the floor across the room.

    I investigate to find the arm has just snapped off of my Masterpiece Rodimus Prime all by itself! He's still sitting on the shelf untouched, but the arm just *pop* falls off.

    The peg with the spring in the shoulder snapped off and the whole arm is now well and truly buggered. This really sucks. It wasn't even in a pose that was putting any stress on it... It just fell off by itself!

    Has this happened to anyone out there before?

    I was under the impression he'd be perfectly fine if I never touched him again. Oh dear.

    Note to self : Sell my MP Rodimus before his arms fall off.

    This is exactly why I'm afraid to touch him...or even look at him.

    I'm familiar with the Hasbro version having this problem, but this is the first I've heard about the Takara edition.

    Oh man! That sucks! Yeah… I am not pleased with the materials that they used to make him. I kind of wished that they used more pot metal on the last few guys rather than plastic. I guess that you can say that Rod suffers from the “Red Plastic Syndrome” instead of “Gold Plastic Synrome”). Which arm fell off? I have a junker that I might be able to donate to the cause if that helps.

    I know this means nothing to anyone here, but I'm very careful with my toys, and I currently do not own this one because the four different Rodimus Primes that I bought and returned all broke in a similar fashion within the month that I owned them.

    Wow, Hasbro Rodimus really is a piece of crap! Still yet to have any issues at all with my V1 Rodimus Convoy. Feels like the extra I spent there was actually worth it.
