    ...and boy am I pissed.

    Upon opening the package, I see the toy cannot stay in rat mode. The spring mechanism is so worn out it just opens and reveals the robot. Second, he felt like a ragdoll. is joints were so loose he couldn't even stand. Thirdly and finally, and maybe the worst, he cannot hold his gun. Every time I put it in, it just falls out.

    Are these things common for this toy? If not I am definatly gonna send it back.

    I got mine when it first came out and played the sh*t out of it. it can't stand, has no gun, and is missing 1 forarm. but the spring mechanism still works like a charm.

    I sold mine very late last year for what, $30? Eh, maybe if I had waited or used eBay... then again, it wasn't MISB.

    I never had that problem with the gun, it fit in his hand just fine. Joints were fine as well and he could hold together in rat mode, but not perfectly. I've noticed the beast mode being much easier with molds like Razorbeast than Rattrap.

    I've had my ratrap since I bought him at the store a decade ago.
    His joints are a little loose, but he can still stand if I position him right.
    Other than that he's still in great condition.

    I wonder if these problems are why they reissued the Transmetal Rattrap instead?

    I'd remove the spring and clear-coat the ball joints and gun peg. Sucks to have spent so much though. This wasn't MISB was it?

    they reissued the transmetal because they were only selling a deluxe class. It would've been a waste of time to design packaging for, and sell a case that only contains a single basic

    They did say that the original mold was lost, but like others I believe it was because of the size difference.

    They really should have put Rattrap and Terrorsaur together instead of the Transmetal Rattrap.

    I got original Rattrap and Terrorsaur for $60 a few months ago on eBay. They were both fine. Sorry to hear about yours :(
