    I bought G1 Tracks from TRU and have displayed him ever since, rarely playing with him.
    I have noticed his fists come out of his arm and can be dropped easily.

    i know that the TRU reissues had lots of problems- like the Jazz head sculpt- i was wondering if any other problems like the fists coming out were common with this line.

    I'm not sure where you're getting your information, but I haven't had any problems with my TRU reissues. In fact, my TRU Starscream is much tigher than my Takara D-22 reissue!

    The head sculpt is not really TRU specific. It is from the G2 mold. The fetal-alcohol syndrome showed up in G2. TFC from takara used that same mold. TRU are just repackaged for US.

    i got my information from watching his fist pop out repeatedly onto my table. it is easy to fix, but i worry that transforming him, i could lose that fist.


    and i think the whole "reissues of Jazz complaints" debate is common knowledge.


    as for the other TRU figs i own, no complaints. other than the smokestacks on OP and UM.

    I may try to get other TRU figs later this year as money and time permits, though.

    I always thought it was the Takara Jazz that had the problems while the US one was of better quality.

    I don't know about Tracks. I have the TFC and haven't had any fist issues.

    My Tracks is fine. My Red Alert's right arm broke off as I was transforming him for the first time, but that's the only thing that's come up with any of my reissues when it comes to parts, be it the Hasbro Commemoratives or any others.

    I can't for the life of me remember for sure what Tracks' fists do to transform them, but I have a vague inkling they slide out of his forearms, yes? Sometimes when I've had that problem with a TF I open up the forearm and stick a piece of tape to the side of the forearm shell to make the fit a bit more snug.
    Dunno if that helps you.

    Yes, the Takara Jazz has issues with the roof tabs that are missing causing the roof to flop around. TRU Jazz corrected this problem but both have the same face issue.
