Just looking for some clarification on what exactly a QC problem is. I've seen people call everything from missing instructions to damaged body parts a QC issue. Now, this is just my opinion so feel free to disagree. When I think QC, I think of MP Thundercracker's reversed boobs for lack of a better term and Henkei Thundercracker's insanely loose joints. Next, when I look at V1 MP Rodimus, I'd say his issues are more of a design flaw. For instance, the popping panels, springs, and those little tabs that plug into Rodimus' legs in car mode aren't really QC to me. That is an engineering flaw As for missing parts (instructions, accessories, body parts, etc), wouldn't that be a packaging error? So in review I'd say a QC problem is something that is common to all figures sold. For instance, who owns a Masterpiece TC without the reverse boob problem? MP09 V1 would be a design/engineering flaw. No quality control check can fix popping springs and panels once its gone into production. Missing accessories would be a packaging error. This probably sounds silly but it just confuses me when I read feedback threads that say, "Figure X is full of QC issues. It didn't come with a thumb, energon axe, etc etc" Then people just run with it. "I wouldn't buy X figure, it's known to be missing thumbs". Does that mean all thumbs are missing from this particular figure? Again, feel free to disagree and enlighten me if possible. I guess I just don't like the idea of QC being all encompassing.
