    Just a couple minutes ago, I was fiddling with voyager megs, when I feel something rough in my hand, I look down, and megsy's hand had a piece missing! Upon closer inspection, both hinges on the hand were cracked, I've had him about 5 months and he's already broken!

    if this happens to anyone else feel free to share in my sorrow

    here are some pics

    Hasbro fixed GPS. I think it's the poor plastic quality.

    Yeah, not GPS, or even close to the same thing.

    GPS results in the plastic literally crumbling apart. and yeah, there's the gold thing too.

    This looks like another situation like RTS Wreck-gar's pins near his shoulder, where the plastic isn't always strong enough to support the stress of the pin, so it cracks.

    They said that they fixed GPS before the 2007 movie line, and Protoform Starscream suffers from it. I honestly don't think Hasbro would give a rat's ass about GPS unless the figs were exploding in the package before our hard earned money could be spent on it.

    Pin probably wasn't inserted properly during assembly and could've cracked the plastic. Not GPS.

    Prolly this or just a bad run with the plastic. Stuff happens - see Roddy, Hasbro MP.
