    Thought it would be interesting to see the ratio of good to faulty samples of this latest release. Also helpful for new buyers, to know what they are getting into.

    @artimus prime , that is quite terrible and unacceptable as a mass produced item. It looks like it was molded out of clay and the moisture sucked out of it.
    I hope you get your refund or replacement.

    I'm the same case. At least chugs dont disintegrate... to be fair, about 95% they don't.

    That is absolutely Unbelievable !!
    I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see the pictures.
    The way its dropping to bits in the 2nd week they’ll just be Hound’s feet and canon left I’d be gutted.
    I usually kop for faulty goods, luckily this time I was ok but I noticed the hound was really cheap plastic.
    I can’t understand why Takara have done this move because bumblebee and prime’s plastic was ok.
    Saying that though I nearly had a heart attack with my bumblebee the other month i thought I’d broke it in half.
    It was in two bits when the top half had totally disconnected from the legs.
    It turns out that the top of the legs and the waist both have rivets just needed connecting.
