    I don't know if this has/will happen to anyone else since people are still waiting to receive their packages from TRU, but mine arrived with a serious QC issue. The Rodimus itself is fine aside from some paint flaws. However, my Offshoot has two left feet. Because of this he can't be properly transformed into his weapon mode nor can he stand properly in robot mode. Has anyone else noticed this? I plan on calling TRU to see if they will send me a replacement or if I find a Rodimus in the store I'll just swap him out there.

    This happens a few times with other tfs in the past. I'm curious what happens at the factories that causes it. It's probably just bad luck from a factory worker making a mistake. Best thing to do is try to replace it.

    Yikes! Maybe TRU is kind enough to send you an entire new one with HR?!

    That kind of QC happens sometimes with all sorts of figures. You just got bad luck. Try calling places and see if they can give you a different part.

    There are many other QC issues as well. Thats sucks about his feet though, reminds me of my classics Cyclonus (had the same issue).

    I'll have to check mine, but didn't notice any other problems. Nor have I looked for any either.

    Is the TRU Rodimus the new one with all the qc issues supposedly fixed. My original one isnt bad, never had any problems with it. Was thinking of getting the TRU one, but might have to hold off.

    It seems like a lot of people are having this particular issue. Hopefully I can find one in a local TRU to replace mine.

    personally i cannot feel bad for anyone that bought this POS after all the documented problems the MP rodimus had.

    shit in a box...is still shit in a box...even if you are missing the back 1/2 of the figure.

    Well, the issue is with the wrong part on the Targetmaster. Not Hot Rod.

    This post would be relevant if this thread was about the Rodimus figure itself, but, ya know, its not...

    Funny, I was thinking the same myself. :D 

    I will be opening mine soon. Looking at the package, I think my Offshoot looks OK. Wish me luck!

    Yeah I'm kind of hoping a right foot/left foot trade action starts. So far everyone has the same problem though.

    It's not actually bothering me that much, I don't like the gun mode anyway.
