    They improved the tolerances on later releases of the figure; no pin for the roof, but it didn't flop like early versions.

    That is not a certainty. It is possible that the initial figure had the pin and it was altered to not have it due to stress test failure. Basically due to force that the chest piece snaps. The grey piece after all still connects, if it really needed a rod to come through the chest piece would not be secured at all.

    Like with CW Motormaster? I got the initial release of that one. And didn't bother to get a new one with the fixed ratchets. Though could have ordered them separately from 3p but the price tbh not feeling like forking that much for 2 mini plastic pieces.

    Looks like two pins should be used one on each side. Wonder if there is a revision number on that box?

    Probably not. Also it won't go in unless you drill holes in the grey parts that the red clips onto.

    With any luck, they'll fix the paint and size in the next run after that.

    You'd be great at the factory, but you're campaigning for a job that pays about 60¢ an hour :crazy:

    This is looking more and more like a hoax. It's a shame that so many sites have run with the story.

    Can this be done with a hand drill? Or do I need a fancy table top drill with all sorts of clamps and vices?

    Or you can just pop that part off & transform him & pop it back on like I do. It's not a big deal at all. Why are some of you making a big deal out of nothing? The part comes off during transformation. Whooptee fuckin do. Guess what! His guns come off too! OMG! Transformers with removable pieces. It's the end of the world! Quick, put your collection on ebay, get rid if it, it's an abomination before God! How can anybody sleep at night knowing their Transformer toys have removable parts?

    Jeez! Gimme a break! :crazy:  If you really want to be worried about something you need to focus on the jacked up prices & the 4" of empty space at the bottom of every box.

    i haven't entirely read this thread so i dont know how extreme people have took it but like ss-01, my complaint is that they designed it with the intention of having a metal pin

    Why would they do that? There’s nothing to fix in either of those areas
