    I just got my WST Grimlock and Slag. As soon as I opened Grimlocks box his weapons were not present. So I sent TFsource and e-mail seeing if they can exchange it.

    Anyone else have any issues with their WST Dinobot orders?

    Not issues with my order, as I picked them up at Botcon, but issues with Snarl's sticker sheet. I ended up just throwing them away. half of mine weren't cut properly and ripped in half as I tried to pull them off the sheet.

    Uh oh... I hope mine will be coming with weapons... As for the stickers, I didn't have a problem with Snarl the first time around so I should be okay with these two...

    I finally got around to opening my WST Snarl. His back Dino legs fell off. I guess they do that. Looks like you have to plug in the fists.......Am I correct? I don't believe mine is broke or anything.

    The only problems I have with them is that Snarl's Gold tail pieces are hella loose in robot mode, and that the decal sheets aren't very accurately cut. Other than that, these things are LOVE.

    My Slag came with an upside down tail. Had to remove the 2 little screws and swap the halves. Easy fix.

    Only pic I have that shows it

    These are the best WST's made IMO. Totally blow away the little plastic ones.
    Very impressive. Any fan of the Dinobots must get these!

    Real sorry to hear it, dude. I'll probably stay away from them. Not much of a WSTer and I'll be content with Classics (and Beast Wars, if I ever get it).

    I got them all at Botcon, and they are all cute as the dickens. I understand why they did it, but I'm not so crazy about the seperate fists for Snarl and Slag. I'll probably be keeping them in dino mode most of the time because of that. Not surprisingly, Mini Grimlock is my fave, partly because no extras are needed for transformation, and partly because he feels the sturdiest of the bunch, as in the least likely to break or wear out easily in the process of transformation.

    No missing parts on mine, so I guess I can't say much on the true thread theme.

    Everything was fine with mine, only issues I have were Snarl's sticker sheet, and the screws holding in the two halfs of Grimlock's tail loosen when you try to transform it, otherwise they're absolute perfection.

    My Grimlock broke the first time I transformed him. The two little tabs on the bottom of the tail, snapped off when I tried to seperate the tail haves. Not a big deal, so I just stuck a little flathead screwdriver inbetween the halves and gently pried apart the tail. That's when one side busted off where the screw holds it on.

    You know what? I like the removeable fists on Slag and Snarl. It allows me to keep their weapons in their hands while they're in dino mode, and when I transform them, I don't have to fiddle with trying to get the tiny weapon pegs into their tiny hands.

    Got mine a week or 2 ago. It seems the quality on Grimlock and Slag aren't as good as Snarl was. My biggest issue was that Grimlock's tail pieces were stuck together; used a razor blade to get them apart, and wished I hadn't..... the screws that hold the tips to the bot mode legs are way too short so the tips keep falling off. Also the Slag fists are VERY loose (the Snarl ones were PERFECT). Need to take him to the hardware store one of these days and see if I can't find some longer screws, or maybe just some metal pins.

    Finally got to opening mine yesterday. Everything there's, but grimlock's tail was stuck together pretty tightly. Also the hand holes for the weapons don't seem quite wide enough, at least with Grimlock's sword.
