    I didn't see any other posts in regards to this, but if they exist, sorry.

    So my wife emailed me at work today to say Ramjet finally arrived. To say the least I was excited!!
    Well I got home and the box was amazing, no shipping damage and just great to look at. After opening the box I saw the gaudy colored greatness that is Ramjet.
    Sadly it went down hill from there.
    The figure was amazing until I removed him from the box: His wings are obviously not right. Rather than lining up properly with the legs, one is cock-eyed at a horrid angle and they both stick out away from the legs too much.

    So Ramjet will remain in his box, never to display his poor QC.
    Anyone else have that problem?

    You should contact FP and explain the situation.

    The wings themselves are able to rotate there is a joint at the thruster connection on the wing so when in robot mode the can angle back and not stick way out like Dirge's does. Also the pin hinge going through the leg thruster can be pushed in, there is space to allow the tailfins on the original seeker to rotate down. Hope this helps you out.

    damnit where were you 15 minutes ago before I emailed FP :D 
    There is still a minor gap and one tail fin is slightly angled, but its totally livable

    Kudos Rexor, you totally helped, thanks a lot dude :)

    Mine are due to arrive today, I'll have to look for these issues on the wings, and I second the thanks on the fix.

    Well, considering all this mold's been through, I'd say some mold degradation is to be expected. It's still better than my CHMS guys

    Yeah, my Ramjet was slightly crooked too. I adjusted the wings and while it's still not perfect, it's acceptable enough for my own display.

    Oh definitely!! Just need to add AM Thundercracker to my shelf now LOL

    Now if only Sideburn would get here :) 

    Idk, my TC and Clone CHMS guys are pretty solid, but Orange Sunstorm is kind of loose. They do make fine stand-ins for displaying until I acquire real ones. :) 
    I left G2 Ramjet in-box for display for now... I need a bigger cabinet LOL

    They did a great job on this figure and the packaging itself is incredible.

    Mine had that issue too. But I just pushed in the wings and they were adjusted properly. Very glad I got this one, for sure.
