    While you should have 2 and 2, it doesn't actively affect anything, does it? The hole is still centered?

    Yeah, I'd probably be a bit OCD about that, too.

    also (this isnt really a qc issue) i opened up the holes in the gauntlets a little more with a hobby knife. the mandable pieces were snug just a little to tight for my liking, everytime i pulled a piece out i was afraid i was gonna snap the tab off.

    oh and thanks TJ you made my day

    You mean he sounds like Scatman Caruthers? XD

    Good on TJ, racking up them bro points!

    Does have me a little worried about the QC on Thundershred (he's sitting in my PoL) but it being from FP (and BBTS) I really shouldn't have anything to fret over.

    as i mentioned above, the holes in the gauntlets were snug just a little to tight for my liking, everytime i pulled a blade/mandible piece out i was afraid i was gonna snap the tab off. i cut open the holes in the gauntlets just a tiny bit with a hobby knife, the blade/mandable pieces now come out much easier and my fear of them breaking is now gone. its really kinda funny usually im putting coats of glue to tighten joints and whatnot this is the first time ive ever loosened something on a toy

    The tab on one of my claws snapped off due to the tightness. I was surprised too, since I was be careful with it. :(

    Ohhh... checked mine and I have this 3 and 1 problem as well. No biggie though, since it does not really affect anything.

    Got mine coming in POL too. Maybe we should all post if we have 3-1 problems and which ones they are? In case we can trade off with people that have the opposite.
