    a buddy of mine wanted to see the size diff in TFC21 compared to the others, so I took this picture ...

    [​IMG]

    I noticed that TFC19's and TFC20's covers are starting to warp. I checked my collection and noticed it was on some, and not others.

    The covers are shut, so the warping is actually lifting the velcro off the inner portion of the box. (no box damage, the adhesive is coming loose)


    anyone else seeing this? :huh

    Yep. I've got ever TFC since day one and at least 4 or 5 boxes warped like that. Blitzwing was by far the worst; I had to flatten it with a few heavy books.

    Yeah, I've heard of this one before. I just stacked them on top of each other,and the weight of the boxes themselves seems to have solved it..

    I was only able to check 3 of mine (due to how they're stored), but Blitzwing was warping a bit, the Insecticons and Hound were minor at worst. With Blitzwing it looked more like the middle was dipping while the edges were staying at the heights of the corner and the velcro.

    if you have any moister in the air, that right off the bat will cause warping. as for what types of boxes and quality will affect it as well.

    Only my Perceptor is warping like that. Pretty much exactly how yours is looking in the photo.

    Just on another note. After looking at the boxes all lined up Kup and Wheelies cover art is so crappy looking. By far the worst so far i think.

    All of mine are fine to the best of my knowlege. Then again, I only got 5 (Megs, Prowl, Smokescreen, Skids, and Blaster), so the chances of one of mine being warped is slimmer I guess.

    what worked for me is to change how I have them displayed from time to time. Set them up like a bookshelf display so that they flatten each other out.

    I haven't checked, but mine are shoved neatly onto a bookcase. Packed in so tightly, they shouldn't be able to warp.
