    I have never had a problem with mine up until today, I got him for christmas and he is a fantastic figure, took him downfrom the shelf today and to my horror, the door panel came away from the screw pin as I was gently transforming him, I recognise this as the same sort of problem that my tm Megatron had where the plastic just sort of crumbles after some amount of time. I've never heard of RPS before and of all the toys it had to hapen to it had to be my convention exclusive.

    Just take care of him guys, don't know if the same thing can happen to mirage or not.

    Hmmm... I've got Kissplayers Rodimus and Alternators Mirage both... both hardly sit idle on my shelves, as they're both in my photocomic, and get posed and moved a lot, and I haven't noticed any problems with either. Thanks for the heads up though... I'll be sure to keep an eye on them.

    I didn't notice any problems either, until it broke Supergluing it later to try and salvage it.

    Is this the SDCC Rodimus or KP Rodimus?

    I have KP Rodimus and he's been transformed a fair few times with no issues.

    Mine did the same thing straight out of the package, I took him out, flipped him over, and as I was doing so the door panel just fell off and hit the floor. I was rather upset.

    I decided to tempt fate by messing with my Alt Mirage, Rodimus and KP Rodimus, and they're all fine. I'm leaving Rijie well alone though.

    Yea, both my clear and regular Mirage are fine, something about the red plastic they used to make him seems a little brittle. It don't have the same feel as the other red alts. I think that, and the way the door panel is attached just add up to lots of bad joo-joo.

    I have Clear Mirage, Mirage, and Alt. Rodimus and all 3 have displayed no issues.
