on my HFTD Seaspray the pin hole on one of the fans was put in too low making it a little more higher than the other and a little less moveable. Yeah it's not that bad and not really that noticable but that is the worst that I have got.

In the realm of "most expensive flaws", my DMK Bumblebee had doubles of one sprue, instead of one, and another. My MP-10 had two right antennae and a scratch on his faceplate.

In both cases, luckily I had ordered from BBTS, so they gave me replacement parts hassle free.

Beyond that, Generations Wheeljack was missing his shoulder cannon and I had a Cybertron Downshift with two left thighs.

Beyond that, nothing I can speak of.

Worst case I ever had out of the 500+ figures I have ever owned is my Animated purple Shockwave was missing a finger out of the box. That's all I got. Guess I have been incredibly lucky.
Selling my entire collection!!!

Heavy Labor's hip gear problem. Totally unacceptable on such an expensive figure.

Design issue, not a QC problem.

Leader Sentinel had to be exchanged since one of the shoulder clips was deformed in a way that the arm didn't stay put. Very tiny defect that affected the whole toy.

TRU Masterpiece Rodimus having an ankle already broken in the box followed by the other ankle joint and the shoulder joint both crumbling to pieces. The second one I got his fine, but the first was the about the worst QC problem I've experienced not only with TFs, but with any type of product ever.

2004 Predaking reissue. Divebomb's got 2 left hands.
