    Most recently, I picked up a Generations Scourge. But there's one issue I have with him. Behind the Con symbol, there's the arm connection. But the right side of his chest is pushed out, not allowing his arm to go down for transformation.

    Does anyone else have this problem, and how do I fix it?

    hmmmmm. I never had this problem (or if I did, I never noticed it). Have you consulted youtube to fine a video review?

    This is all very strange. I have bought this figure 4 times now and the worst problem I had is one of them didn't have a rear landing gear. Or it did and it fell off the swivel joint.

    Me either on both counts. I have many, many copies of this mold and haven't *knocks on wood* had any issues described in the OPs first post or others mentioned in the thread. Perhaps a pic of the problem would help.

    I think I understand the OP's problem. In the main body of Scourge, there are two channels that the arm joint slides up and down in for transformation. It's kind of an awkward connection, though as the chest plate moves along with both arms. If you don't get both arms to move at the same time everything sticks.

    I've had the same problem a few times with the first Scourge I bought. I've found that pushing the actual arm joint instead of the shoulders when transforming, makes everything move a bit easier. Just be sure not to push too hard as I've gotten stress marks in the left channel by his waist. It's funny because the chest plate on all of my three Scourge's doesn't completely slide all the way down easily. It gets within like 2-3 millimeters and then stops so, I have to halfway force it the last bit.

    My Scourge (fortunately) has no QC issues. Sorry to hear that yours does. I would suggest exchanging it and getting another Scourge, if there is one.
