    The more I mess with it, the worse it gets.

    This. Sucks.

    Waste of good money.

    How much is Horsey Prime in the US? If I go out on a limb I'd say $100? So factor in 2 hours drive, plus two hours back, minus say, $10 for petrol gives $90/4 =$22.5 an hour.

    So I'd say it'd be worth it to go exchange that dud for another.

    Sounds to me like someone returned yours before you bought it. I'm sorry to hear that your closest store is 2+ hours away, but if your exchange it, you won't be disappointed. It's a terrific mold overall.

    Sadly, this was the only one they had left, guess I'll just have to return it next time I go ever.

    Remember you have 90 days to return it too (I think, double check their website). By then you should have two MPs to hunt at TRU if nothing else.

    You can return and have the store order 1 from another store.

    Or better yet, call the store, explain what happened, have them order you one, THEN go do the exchange when it arrives.

    Are they shelf warming there? Here in China we've still got Soundwave, Acid Storm, and YOTH MP10 hanging around. Each week one or the other goes on sale and then a few more are back out.

    YOTH MP10 iis great looking as is Soundwave.

    Good news everyone!

    Toy's R Us took back the crumbling prime, and another is being sent to me from another store, no additional charge for shipping was required :)

    I have yet to see it at any of my local TRU store. My stores are usually filled with the gigantic Starscreams.
