    I've watched emgos review and while he mentions the knees and gives 2 possible solutions to fixing it he said he didntbreally have any issues with his so far. He even took a part the knee off camera to see what the issues was and it's the spring he thinks is the issue.

    But it was a good review and it was his second favorite titan after Scorponok so that's saying a lot. I don't think it's panic stations yet. I have cancelled but I may get this guy end of the month because he does look good.

    So emgo just said there *might* be an issue or did his knees actually explode?

    Are people who admit to loving to give Hasbro shit for everything and anything just taking a bad faith narrative that Tidal Wave destroys himself through QC and running with it to socials?

    So far only one report of knees breaking. But plenty of alt mode halves coming apart too easily

    Emgos was the same.

    They look like really tiny connectors in fairness but it seemed to stay together after after a bit of adjusting.

    Strange design choice though

    It's a fairly positive review. Has no issues so far with the knees but isn't happy with the connectors for one of the altmodes. He looks good and burning megatron looks good too.

    It's nit that bad really.

    I watched the review by Prime v Prime, and for what its worth he was excited about the figure overall, with the folllowing cons / knocks:

    - price point is too high
    - no minicon
    - the back is open / no black flap when the mini dark fleet ship is taken out
    - the transport ship of the dark fleet being incredibly flimsy - he literally put light pressure on it and it disconnected
    - his version didn't have the knees issue but he acknowledged this is happening with other people and suggested cutting the spring

    Also acknowledging he tends to be overly positive on most of his reviews , and there are reasons people have noted that I won't get into here, but even with his normal level of high praise the above items were knocks he gave the figure.

    I respect everyone's decision on whether to purchase or not. Personally, I have both the fanshobby megatron and the legacy megs. I originally decided to sell my fanshobby megs and get the hasbro Tidal Wave. I think I'm going to do the opposite, and sell my legacy megs and maybe get the fanshobby Tidal Wave. Again, no knocks to anyone's decision. For me, I kind of prefer a smaller size and more gimmicks along with poseability, and given the lack of minicon, the combination with megs being a mini dark fleet versus the entire figure like the original, and the lack of minicon unlocking features I just think for me FH is likely the best option. Crying in advance for the 200+ cost potentially though~

    For those who purchase the hasbro one, truly enjoy!

    I may yet pull the trigger on this guy and this version. It's largely down to expectations from a figure. For me I don't have the time to spend hours with a figure and mess with it and take plenty of photos so all I would do is maybe tf him once into all his modes then change him to bot mode and leave him like that.

    So if it survives all that then he's fine. One of the altmodes falling apart at the merest touch is annoying as hell but he won't stay in that mode so it's nit really an issue for me. I may not even bend the knees other than for transformation so again not a major issue.

    I might end up getting him again although if there are enough complaints hasbro might reissue him with these issues addressed? That's something to think about too

    For $280 in most parts of the world, the leg vehicle not holding together is terrible. That ship is underwhelming enough on the og, and that's without it splitting in half when you breathe on it :oops: 

    Too early to say if the leg ratchet issue will be common, but it wouldnt surprise me if it was. The fragility looks like a design issue rather than a freak qc problem

    It's a design issue no question. It's not a qc issue
