Wow, this sure must've been super unpopular because I found them on clearance in store and I never find anything besides leftovers. From one critical collector to another, I would say the QC complaints are overblown. The plastic is fine, no rough edges (but a few rough surfaces), paint and chrome are good. They're tighter than my G2s were off the card. The only issue I ran into was in some cases they may be a little too tight. That was mostly connecting Scrapper and Mixmaster to the thigh connector. They like to pop off if they're not aligned just right. Missing the second drill is a bummer, and it would've been nice to have "Tonka" printed on both sides of Hook's crane, but I'm really reaching at that point. Considering I paid $30 30 years ago, I didn't find the original asking price too out of whack, but $50 on discount was fair in my opinion.
