    Yes that's right, My Classics Astrotrain was built with two right shoulders. :banghead:  As a result, he will not line up properly in any of his modes. And there is no way to fix it, I'm just going to have to exchange it. You can see the two right shoulders from inside the package, sadly I didn't notice untill I got home.

    Notice how this missassembly makes the right side of the shuttle too high. The right side should be even with the wings like the left side is. So make sure to see if both sides are EVEN before you buy Astrotrain! Here is a pic of Bot mode and you can see that his shoulders are both stamped for "R" and because he has two "R" shoulders, one is higher than the other:

    There would come a time when the Astrotrain with two right shoulders... fell into the most likely of beings.


    Man Cat, that's weak. That weaker than Bill Clinton's credability at an impeachment hearing.

    Now I am so worried about mine at BBTS :(

    What sucks is that out of about 10 Astrotrains at the store, this was the only one with clean paint applications. Just my luck he was disguising an even bigger screw up from me! :banghead:

    Here's an idea, instead of exchanging it, first buy another one with the corrected limbs, put the replacement piece in and keep the one you've got with a correct paint application. Put the other one back together, make sure you let them know it's broken and isn't together right, they'll tag it and get a credit back.

    People would say this is shady, but here's the bottom line, whether you exchange it or not, the store's going to end up with an extra because of this, might as well give 'em one that'll get credit.

    Ah man, sorry to hear. BOO!

    I guess the factory dudes missed the giant 'L' & 'R' on the insides of the shoulders. Hope it's an easy swap

    Look at it this way guys, these are general release toys. They are not going to be hard to find for the most part. Just return it to the store you got it from. Or complain to Hasbro about it.

    Yeah, I'm not worried about when I get mine.

    While unfortunate, you took one for the team, Cat, and you let us all know to keep an eye out, and not only that, exactly what to keep an eye out for. :) 

    And of course, you can probably still return it. ;)

    Oh Snap! So sorrow to hear about C. Astrotrain. I'd buy another one and double up the weapons on the good one. ;)

    Give the defective one to some needy child who will actually play with it, but doesn't care about perfection and buy a new one.

    That way the store doesn't eat the return cost and decide that transformers is a money losing line and drop them from the store, plus you bring a smile to some kids face and maybe make a new transfan.
