    My copy has this same "goatee doesn't fit properly in the designated goatee crevice; results in a visible hole in the chin"

    How widespread is this/any tips to fix?

    It's on every one I've seen physically and in pics. I don't have my box anymore, but I think it's even on the box photo.

    The image on the box is too small to tell:

    The promo images aren't as bad at the top but even they clearly have a fitment issue at the sides:

    If they could get away with no packing materials at all and avoid theft due to exposed contents they 100% would. Even 3rd party vendor items fulfilled by Amazon are being shipped out like that.

    I personally can't wait to see them shove a leader sized toy into two envelopes and then tape said envelopes together.

    The difference between Amazon US and Japan is absolutely staggering. This kind of stuff would never fly over here.

    When/if the rest of the dinobots are released I don't know what I'm going to do in terms of shelf space. :eek: 

    Also, I wasn't sure where else to ask, but has anyone purchased the Toyhax label for Jazz and not using #31 and #32 from the set? If so would you be willing to part with it? Sadly that's all I'm interested in. PM me if so :p

    I see 3 perfectly serviceable shelves on the right. Just get rid of that non-Transformers nonsense.

    Excuse me folks, but I caught this man trying to break into your apartment. Would you like to file a complaint.

    I didn't know where else to ask this but is there a known problem of SS86 Slag's knees being loose? Anyone have loose knee joints? It's kind of hard to use the pledge trick cause the joint isn't really accessible. I'm on the fence if I should source another one and return the current one I have. Please advise!?

    I think that’s just how he is. I dunno if it’s an error or it was designed that way.

    I witnessed mine become loose. There's a little white plastic clip that sits inside the gray piece on the medial aspect of the knee and broke on conversion #2. Now it just flops.

    I found the broken piece and I have it superglued and drying outside of the joint, I'll take a picture tonight after work if that sounds like your issue.
