    So.... WTF Hasbro........ I had 2 MP Rodimus in an extremely overlarge box with no stuffing. My box looked like it had been around the world 3 times, and the boxes of the rodimus' were beat up very bad because of it. Luckily it looks like they are ok... Anyone else have these issues?


    *EDIT* WTF TRU?

    I posted this in another thread:

    My package from TRU came, and the box was smashed up, as usual, from TRU since they use really thin boxes. Somehow the MP Rodimus was okay, but the Lion-O box took a beating. Last package I got from them was the same - lego boxes got smashed up. I'm calling them tomorrow to complain. I shouldn't have to pay $50 for a smashed up Lion-O.

    Two came in a box about as large as the two boxes inside, no packing. Nothing was damaged at all.

    My box was fine, but the Rodimus box inside was a little beat up. Good thing I planned on opening it anyway. Still kinda upset me though.

    i had 3 in a box. the mailing box was perfect. when i opened it, there was only a small airbubble for packing. a lot of empty room.

    the boxes were fine though. I have some small paint damage on one of hotrod's crotches, but i think that's on hasbro's end.

    Maybe they were mailing so many off, they were running out of airbubbles

    I don't know which is worse, TRU or HTS lack of packing materials. Mine is being shipped to the West Coast and usually UPS takes good care when delivering so I'll see what happens.

    Had the same problem with Masterpiece Grimlock. I didn't luck out with nabbing a Rodimus, but it's sad to see that it's a year later, and TRU hasn't done anything to change packing practices.

    Mine came in great shape despite having no padding.

    But I have had issues with TRU mail order previously.

    Honestly I don't like dealing with TRU.

    Sucks. I wonder with it being sold out do they have stock to replace damaged items. Most certainly not the type of figure you return to get your money back. Well, not at least until it is found in U.S. stores.

    OH god, you assholes...why make a thread like this?

    I mean why make it where I can see it?!

    Now I'm going to be concerned about my poor Rody till he gets here saturday. If he's hurt I'm going to have to hold him in my arms and let him know it'll be alright, he'll find a new home. :p

    Sorry >_< just wanted to let people know they might have issues when they get him. Better a heads up and let the RAGE cool down before you get him then flip out when he arrives hehe.

    Is this why exclusives take so long to hit the stores? Tru has to make sure they have enough to replace the ones they break with careless shipping practices? Is it really cost effective for them to just let toys get broken, rather than pay for materials to ensure they have a customer satisfied with a figure they spent a lot of money on. When (if) I get mine it will be from a local store so I can see if its not just a repack. What a waste, hasbro does all these reworks on qc, and TRU f's it up fir their fans.
