    It seems a lot of people have reported pressing quality control issues on a few of the DOTM toys. I was just wondering, in my obsession with stability, which toy do you believe has the least amount of QC problems? Which toy is the least likely to fall apart, to have loose joints, to develop stress points, etc? It doesn't have to be a good toy design-wise, just a toy that is solidly built, stable and can survive a fall like a brick.

    Id say Shockwave for sure. He just pegs together so nicely in both modes.

    I was going to say Shockwave but I think I'm learning more towards Skyhammer right now.

    The locking tabs on his heel spurs are starting to get some stress marks due to the tight fit on his arms in alt mod. Also, the two circular pegs underneath his chestplate are getting some stress marks as well. Other than these two spots, I'm anticipating this figure to last for a long time.

    I would even put my Voyager Megatron a little higher than Shockwave, even though one side of his V-shaped chest plate has been loose right out of the box and doesn't like to stay in place in his robot mode.

    I have no clue how to get Skyhammer's legs right. Especially with one with the tailfin. The tail fin won't position like the instructions or back of the package..

    Based on what i have so far i have to say Shockwave. He is all around solid figure. Mine had a slight QC issue with the right arm popping off easily when i first got him out of the box but the issue has seemed to resolve itself so it was prolly just some flash that got worn off or something. Plus his alt mode is incredibly solid and everything pegs in nice and tight.

    It seems the vast majority have favored Shockwave. Therefore we have a good candidate for the most solid DOTM Voyager figure.

    What about Leader, Deluxe and Cyberverse Commander and Legion? What do you think are the most solid figures in each of the size classes?
