    So I thought I'd might as well get a RTS Tracks beings I probably won't be seeing the mold in the form of Wheeljack anytime soon in stores. Everything was way too tight! I popped both the feet and heels while trying to transform them and while trying to unfold the gun/blaster/whatever its called this is what happened <_<

    The clip part or something was just so tight that while trying to move it, it snapped like a twig <_< I probably won't take it back just for this, I mean a little glue will fix this easily, but geez! Was anyone else's like this or did I have more bad luck?

    I actually had similar problems to you with this figure. Had a problem getting the head/arms to move as well. I've bought a few more moulds of this figure since to paint etc and had no problems.

    Use a little finesse? It's a toy, not a broken sewer pipe.

    I had the opposite on mine. His arms were insanely floppy to the point I had to do the super glue trick to fix them.

    Thats the thing though! I had to use a little pressure to get it to move because it was so tight! <_< Anyways after getting frustrated with it for an hour, I just took it back and sent a complaint to Hasbro about my dissatisfaction with the recent wave of new figures and how many have broke on me. Guess I can cross Wheeljack off my list of figures to get, not that I expect to ever see it in stores here.

    I don't know why, but that has me in stitches.

    I thought this thread was going to be about how "tight" and "awesome" the OP thinks the toy is.

    I think the 1st releases of the Turbo Tracks figure were very loose. I was one of those to snag Tracks very early in the game and he was very loose when transformed. Couple of months later I decided to pickup another Tracks and that figure turned out to be not too tight and not too loose. It was perfect! My guess is that the newer Tracks mold are now being released a little tight now. My wheeljack is like that.......stiff!

    I was just going to say, remember when people said "Yo...that's tight!" as an expression of praise?

    Mine actually works really well; if anything it's fractionally loose, but not exactly floppy (except the feet, which could do with tightening up).

    Iz Hasbro. Wheeljack won't suffer from the same problem as Tracks. It'll be something completely different, like two right hands.

    Yeah I tore the ball joint on one of his hips on my tracks. Guess I was too rough on it :/
