    So I held out for so long before buying a 3rd party product.....I finally broke down...I Pre-Ordered Exgraver and HeavyLabor sometime ago...In the meantime I went to Slag-A-Con..I purchased all the Causality Line...Got home and found that BackFiery had a defect....The leg panels on the right leg were incorrectly applied...They were duplicates of the left leg panels...Someone screwed up at the factory...That has been remedied....Then today I go to pick up my Heavy Labor and Exgraver....Heavy Labor is great, fine, awesome..!! Exgraver however has the same issue as my experience with Backfiery...IT was assembled incorrectly at the factory...Exgraver has 2 left arms..???? WTF..!!!!Instead of a right arm the left arm also exist on the right arm...???? I'm starting to get a bad taste in my mouth for 3rd party products..I bought a lottery ticket too..I figure what is the chances of buying 2 figures from 2 different companies and having to limbs assembled incorrectly..??? Anyone else experienced this..??????

    It happens. It's like buying a Hasbro product with a defect. They're all made in the same caliber factories. The biggest influence in price is run size and engineering... There's really no difference in QC across the board.

    Yup, I had. Both my PE Frenzy and Rumble I bought from a toy store had 2 right forearms. Got them exchanged by the toy store when I brought them back.

    Most bad luck on a 3rd party product I've had is Warbot Defender's joints being floppy.

    After the issues I had with poor quality on my FP Munitioner, and the service I got from BBTS... I'm just gonna keep getting my 3rd party stuff from them. They fixxed everything quick fast and in a hurry, and at no cost to me.
