    I finally found Alt Mirage at a local Target today. I was jumping for joy as I was hunting for this guy for awhile now. I should've looked closer at the insides as he was missing 3 FRIGGIN tires.

    I can tolerate a door popping off, loose joints, 2 right (or left) hands heck even when Prowl's door mirror broke, that didn't bother me but MISSING tires?!?!:Gouki: 

    Ultimately I suppose it's my fault for not looking carefully but man this is annoying as I finally got Mirage after all that hunting. I can't believe I didn't see this until after I opened it. Oh well at least it's not too bad in robot mode.

    :cry

    :lol  I'm sorry dude, but that's funny. I think that is worse than the one that was missing its head.

    That's the second time that someone on this board has gotten a dud Mirage, and a third party on annother board was saying much the same things.

    Yeah but the problem is getting another one, this was the only one on the shelf.

    Someone had a missing head!?! Well I guess mine isn't that bad then.

    Do you folks think I can get model car tires from a hobby shop or something? The rest of the figure is fine, it's just missing 3 tires.

    Maybe you can contact Hasbro and tell them the situation and maybe they can send you replacement tires. I think there is something about replacement parts on their website.

    If you can find a 1/24 GT then the tires should swap ok. Of course they won't read Cybertron Radial or whatever, but who cares, right? :p
