    Proof positive that 3Ps aren't the only ones to release "fixed" v2 figures (as if folks were ignoring the fact that MP-09 had similar QC issues and v2 fixes).

    Glad I held off on CW Motormaster and went with UW MM instead (although I do have a CW MM preordered, I hope it's a revised/fixed version).

    The second run of Silverbolts fixed all the first runs issues as well (his weapon fits snugly in his fists and his antennae move appropriately). Fingers crossed Motormaster follows suit.

    What a shame for early adopters.

    It looks like Amazon has Motormaster available at retail price ($24.99). Given this is a recent development, and that they recently got Battle Core in stock, it's possible this is the Wave 4 restocking rather than Wave 2 figures they pulled out of subspace.

    If anybody with Prime has been looking for him (or wants to take a shot) it's possible we could find out by this weekend if the re-stock of MM includes the new hip joints as well.

    That's weird. I don't have any issue standing up my Menasor; other than him having really small feet.

    Suck for the Prime and Motormaster I already have but I'm glad they did fix it for further releases.I was thinking of getting Battlecore Optimus anyway just cuz he looks like Checkpoint and I do have UW Menasor on back order from Ami. This is the same thing that happened with Brainstorm as well as Rts Prime's shoulder peg back in the day.
    It would of course be nice if these errors could be caught earlier (I wouldn't mind them delaying releases if such errors are found) but oh well.

    Hasbro retooled a bad mold? Preposterous! What's next, our society not needing oil anymore?

    I guessing Hasbro put new hip ratchets in like Nonnef's just needs someone to crack some new hips open and compare.

    I put Nonnef's in my Motorrnaster and it did fix original issues.

    Once this is confirmed with newly purchased Motormasters I'm taking mine back for an exchange.

    Well i'll be. If the Motormaster in this wave follows suit, I may have to pick up another one.

    I just ordered MM from Amazon, I'll report back when I get him. I didn't have the mold before, but I do have old Prime and remember how crappy his unfixed hips were.

    If Wave 4 Motormaster has the fixes, I see a ton of people buying him, replacing him with Wave 2 Motormaster and returning him.

    Anyone know if there will be an Xmas reissue of red prime sans rickets like the battle core version?
