    I was recently given a 25th Anniversary/Universe Superion as a gift; and it wasn't until I transformed the individual robots that I realised that something wasn't right. That's when I noticed that my Airraid (The black jet) has two left arms :eek: ! Has anyone else had any issues with quality control on their Universe Superion or maybe even the Bruticus Maximus set? Or maybe another figure altogether? If so, what was the problem???

    This happens on many tf's, not just those specific ones.

    Might I also add, it happens to Hasbro AND TakaraTomy produced stuff. Nobody is immune.

    I also think that the Combaticons turned out perfectly. And I'm glad to see a fellow Aussie replying to my thread!:D

    Brutallion Maximus, Arise!

    Although I despise their combined form, I'm okay with the individual robots. I've even come up with my own combiner: Brutallion(Pronounced Broo-tah-lee-on) Maximus! It uses Onslaught as the main body, Vortex as the left arm, Airazor(Or Slingshot as I call him, because it looks like the G1 Aerialbot. Beside which, Airazor is a female Maximal!) as the right arm, Fireflight(I just call him by the mold's original name, Terradive. I find it easier to remember, personally.) as the Right leg, and Brawl(I call him Swindle due to the fact that Hasbro got some of the characters wrong!) as the left leg.

    Really? I don't have that one, nor have I seen it, so I really wouldn't know.:dunce 

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that I couldn't possibly have it because I'm not a member of the TransFormers Collector's Club.

    I got the original Superion. It is a tad floppy but I put some clear coat paint on the peg and that gives it enough friction to stay in the bloody hole. Love bruticus, constructicon maximus is a bit wishy washy I put Dustorm and Wideload as the arms (so he has both pincher claws and "hands" but I noted the ball joints are fairly loose on dust storm (not as much on wideload)
