    I ordered a Generations Wheeljack about a month ago. Only to find him B.I.P (Broken In Package). A week later, I sent him back to hasbro for a replacement.... And have yet to receive the replacement. And It's been 3 weeks.

    God Damn it.

    Call or email and fuss at them about it. Although they might not have had any extra Wheeljacks available yet to send you, they should have offered you a credit or something else. Also couldn't hurt if you sent it registered or something and have some sort of proof they actually received it.

    Don't be surprised if you get an RTS Elita 1 by return mail.

    Hasbro are infamous for that sort of thing.

    Sorry.

    you never send it back......you will not get a replacement....they'll send whatever they want back and tell you to buzz off....

    that is what happened to my animated wreck-gar and universe inferno, they sent animated prime and universe dropshot instead, i still don't have a wreck-gar

    If you have TJ Maxx/Ross/Marshalls near you, it would be a good place to find WG. Cheap too.

    Kiss WJ goodbye, they'll never send you another - they don't have any to send.

    You should have tried to repair it yourself.

    It's better to return a broken toy to the store and try to get a replacement there than send it back straight to Hasbro (this goes for alot of companies, actually).

    The part of the company dealing in replacements either doesn't have the right toys available, or assumethe kids these toys are meant for don't care. It's just never a good idea.

    More desirable too. That was the worst case scenario i could think of, based on my intense HATRED of that mold.

    Yeah, Hasbro's a tough one since they specifically state that if you return a toy, they will replace it with the same one, or a comparable one. Maybe this waiting time is a good thing - maybe they're waiting for a Wheeljack to come back in stock, as opposed to sending you a Sea Attack Ravage.

    How much did you spend on your WJ? I called Hasbro about a damaged item and they refunded me and told me not to worry about returning the toy since it's under $15.

    AKA: the same price point. So you will get a deluxe toy in return.

    Just got a reply to the email I shot out...
    They are telling me to wait 6-8 weeks FROM TODAY to receive a replacement. As they "Supposedly" Have not received the item after a month of me shipping it out.

    God Damn it hasblow.
