    Unexpectedly I got Scourge today.

    He seems alright at first glance, although he doesn't appear to have any meaningful wrist swivel (as in, they don't move regardless of what he's holding/not holding).

    He has full wrist rotation, but it's super tight due to the fully painted hands (they painted the mushroom pegs too).

    No, you dont understand. His wrists do not move. Like, if you tried I can see you snapping them off kind of not move.

    It's a paint issue. If you open up the forearm and remove the hands, you will see. Their new durable paint really gums up joints. Our thumb broke off because of this.

    Huh. I didn’t have any issues with mine. Maybe try removing the hand and removing some paint form the peg?

    I just loosened the screw in the forearm until the hand could swivel making sure not to try twisting it by the thumbs. Then tightened the screw back barely snug and the hand swiveled fine afterwards.

    Pretty much this. It takes some time but you can definitely get the wrists to rotate safely. As @ziltama said, you can break the figure's thumb if you try to force the issue.

    Has there been any new amazon exclusive listings or mysterious listings? It's been a while since I checked here. Want to know what I've missing.

    No new listing per say. But rumored exclusive 2-packs that supposedly are
    1. Earth mode Sideswipe and BW Skywarp from Airazor and 2. Earth mode Mirage and BW Grimlock from Dinobot. Those are rumored. Also I might have the combination wrong on those with regards to the BW figures.

    Yes, do this. I moved the wrist once using the gun in the hand as leverage, DON'T DO THIS! I got so chewed out it wasn't funny.

    Arrival. Safe and sound and in a box inside a box.

    Getting these two in such an odd way reminds me of getting the originals as a kid, since I found both shelf warming after their retail runs (Ramjet spring 1987, Dirge summer 1988)
