    It's been a week after Botcon. I work a long shift so tonight I have a some free time. I pull my Botcon exclusives out, brand new still sealed. I get Kup first and as soon as I start to transform him boom his leg falls off, and as much as I try It wont stay on. While I was a Botcon I noticed some guy at a booth all by himself and he had like 10 boxed sets and I asked him "are those for sell?" he says "no they are replacements for junkers." So I'm guessing I got cursed with a Junker. Did this happen to anyone else? If so is there any way I can get it replaced? This is a bunch of BS and I'm beyond pissed.

    I'm sorry i don't know what fp is. I sent an e-mail through the Botcon website already though. But please let me know what that is.

    I have issues with SkyQuake and Thunderclash too, who can I talk to about getting them replaced. If they are willing to replace, are they covering shipping charges or am I stuck with it. Thanks for any information.

    I see, well if you get screwed by fanpub you could probably just replace the connector from a cyb red alert. All you would need is a soldering iron

    FP is usually pretty cool about their customer service. Although, I'm not sure what they would do about botcon toys. Hopefully they can help you though

    Piss-poor quality on 12$ retail figures? Fans overreacting.
    Piss-poor quality on 300$ Botcon figures? SERIOUS BUSINESS. :lol

    kinda funny since all the chinese pre-release samples that people bought of the botcon figures had ZERO problems...i have two skyquakes and one leozack and razorclaw and ZERO problems with any of these guys...also got one of the NFS flaks with the red goggles...he is also no problems what so ever....sucks that the final sets that are given out at botcon have all these QC issues...

    so what email should I write to for this? I have a QC issue with my Skyquake and Thunderclash. I tried Kristin and I tried submitting through the Botcon website but was wondering if I went to the right places or not. Thanks for any help.

    So did you hear from Botcon. I still haven't gotten anything yet. Out of curiosity who did you write to.

    I know. The one I wanted the most turns out to be crap.
    First I sent an e-mail to through the "contact us" part of the Botcon website. Then I googled Fun Publications and it took me to the TCC website and I sent another one through there. If I don't get a reply by today I'm going to call them and see whats up. This is bullshit.
