    The dude has two left feet. Not a whole hell of a lot I can do about it since I bought the two pack off of ebay.

    Does anyone else have QC issues with their Buster Primes?

    Does anyone have a Buster Prime with two right feet, if so lets trade.

    If anything, they really should make sure that the QC is perfect in the expensive stuff that they are rolling out.

    I didn't even notice at first. I sat down and was about to transform him and then I realized he had two of the same feet. I am hoping I can find someone with the "right" foot.

    I'm sorry about that bro, but that is hilariously bad QC. Like, there must be something wrong with the factor workers.

    I guess that explains why Prime sucks at dancing.

    I'm not gonna lie, but at first I was curious to wtf you were talking about. I thought maybe you had 2 Buster Prime Left legs next to each other as if you had 2 Buster Primes. So I started to look at the differences, and finally saw the wheels. Than it dawned on me...it is 2 left feet!

    Think of it this way, if you are stuck without a fix, just don't transform him. Let him look as bad-ass as possible without seeing the bottoms of the feet!

    For me it is the principal, I was probably never going to transform him, but the fact that I can't bothers me. I basically bought this Buster Prime for the head, and the black/brown Jetfire. My plan was to do a head swap with my single release Buster Prime and then display this one with my ROTF toys.

    I just hope I can figure something out.

    Oh, I completely agree about the principal on the matter. I would be just as pissed about it. I was just trying to look at the bright side of it, so you at least have a plus. I have yet to even transform my Prime. I never once transformed him since I got him back in May.

    Couldn't you call Hasbro customer service and ask if they can send you a right? Or exchange your toy?

    Two things wrong with that. First, I don't think the Hasbro in question operates in Batman's country. (Now I know why you wanted the name change!) Second off, Hasbro's exchange service is notorious for its massive levels of fail.

    Unfortunately, this is why I buy doubles, more often then not, when ordering imports (unless it's too expensive like Masterpiece figures). Even for domestic stuff if I have to get it online. I can't trust the QC. Sometimes everything's perfect, other times it's utter crap.

    I'm trying to teach myself to not expect perfection all the time but sometimes it's so bad you can't help but be disgusted. A lot of Henkei stuff was like that.

    But two left feet on a Prime? The set was so expensive I only ordered one and I ended up lucky. One of Jetfire's knees was very loose and couldn't really support his weight but I didn't want it anyway. I heard the QC was a bit spotty on these sets. My single pack Buster Prime's were both perfect. *shrugs*

    I spent a lot of time looking at that pic, thinking that you were holding up two buster prime feet next to each other and we were supposed to tell what was wrong with the messed up one. In the back of my head I thought "he has two of the same foot? no. that's ridiculous, keep looking". That Sucks dude!

    At this point, i think your best option *might* be to salvage a right foot from the standard Leader Prime, and have it sprayed with Alclad, or some equivalent.
