    I've been lucky and haven't gotten much that has errantly slipped past QC...but in the "Armada" Dinobots 2-packs, my Grimlock's foot stabilizers (or whatever you want to call the things that flip out from under his foot) were put together upside down. Easy enough to fix though, nothing like two left hands or no head or wheels on an Alternator!

    I bought a KO Robotmasters Star Saber, and it doesn't come with the Star component. It comes with a piece that is a mixture between Star and the sword.

    Cybertron Downshift was a big culprit for these. I got two different ones, one had two left hands, one had only one eye painted on, and a few didn't even get out of the factory with their headlights.

    The deluxe Prime mold from Armada has his problems when released again. In Universe as Ultra Magnus his arm covers were backwards which kept his elbows from working, and the Cybertron version had the same problem early on, though it was fixed quickly.

    One of the missiles on my alternators Tracks doesn't stay on because the end part wasn't "Clicky" enough.

    And it wasn't returned.

    My first Cybertron Bendy Prime had 2 right arms - replaced. I gave the first's Cyber key to Cybertron Galaxy Force Optimus Prime. I was glad the modified key could still be used normally. TFs QC really isn't what it used to be.

    My Armada Sideways has two left plates where the arm attachs, my Alt. Skids has to right hips and my Alt. Prowl has a major defect on the black part of the hood, looks like it was burn/melted and the only paint problem I ever had is with my BM ultra Jetstorm the paint flake away off his chest plate and I even bought another one to replace him a couple years ago and it did the same thing.

    My Armada Sideways has the factory run first release defect. Where the heads are backwards (white = Autobot, Black = Decepticon) ... when it was supposed to be the other way around.

    And most everyone suffered from Silverbolt (Energon combiner) and Steamhammer (Energon combiner) defects.

    Haven't run across many defects, really. But the left arm gun of my Primus won't lock into place, no matter what I do. But at this point, I'm just happy that everything else works on him and that I got the one with the Unicron head.

    It's always nice to get a little head.

    Not incredibly rare unless it is in minty fresh condition, but one of my G1 Jetfires has the Macross IDF emblem on the wind (the so-called Matsushiro Jetfire). Of course that is because G1 Jetfire is actually a VF-1s with a stubby nosecone and a red visor.

    Not rare at all since I think they were all like this, but Nosecone has two receiver holes drilled in him instead of just one centered one. As a result, Computron looks like my freshman calculus professor who had one foot all jacked up and the other foot just fine.

    I bought a Cybertron Cannonball that came with the head of a Cybertron Thundercracker.

    And the body of a Cybertron Thundercracker.

    Weirdest thing I ever saw.

    The peg on the bottom of Storm Jet's nose isn't strong enough to hold when transformed, especially as Superion. As for Steamhammer... his shovel arm might be a bit loose but otherwise mine's fine so I dont know about that one.
