    Nice colors. You might want to take a different shot as the it's hard to see the face. Good job! ;)

    I just picked up Laserback since he was on sale for $10.

    He's...as average as I thought he would be. I mean, I don't hate him, but even though I only paid $10 I still wish I'd gotten that other coupon and paid $7 instead. Maybe then I'd feel he's worth what I spent.

    Does anyone else have a problem with the yellow part of Laserback's neck area detaching from his body and being floppy? Mine came loose within ten seconds of fiddling and it took a hell of a lot of effort to get it back on and now I'm afraid to transform him again.

    I like the Beast Hunters line as much as the next guy but did anyone else get a BH Wheeljack with an incredibly loose elbow joint or any other QC problems?

    Elbow joints are fine, but the hip ball joints on mine are incredibly loose. I can fix that with judicious application of liquid tape, though.

    Mine's right elbow were so freaking loose that the forearm came off at the pin and it's broken now.

    Some real high-quality line BH is shaping up to be. That's my third BH break, and my fourth bad quality issue because my Starscream has flash plastic stuck inside his head making it extremely loose on the ball joint.

    :rock :rock :rock I finally got Dreadwing (thanks to the boards) Why Megatron killed him is beyond me! This guy and Megs are awesome.

    From this line I have
    RID Prime, Rid Wheeljack, RID Kup, RID Ratchet , RID Vechicon, Dreadwing and Megatron all get at least 4 stars IMO

    That's awesome! Great job on the paint!

    I imagine it's due to Wheeljack being such an extensive retool - it appears they just copied certain parts of the original Wheeljack mold, and I'm sure molds degrade each time they are copied like that.

    That's nice. Too bad the only thing I want from BH right now is Commander Hardshell.

    She's really worth the normal $10 sale price. Hell, I would've paid the full normal price and not regretted it at all. She's that good.

    Kind of wondering that myself, or do they need to scan it?

    Just went to a local Target today, and the Prime Deluxe pegs (both the RID and BH lines) have the $10 tag on them.

    I'd say bring the ad with you just in case; if you show it to them, I believe they're required to honor it.

    BTW, here's the ad for Tulsa, OK, and it shows that TFPBH DX figures are at $10.

    Tulsa Weekly Deals In Stores Now : Target Weekly Ad


    They probably just haven't updated their inventory, but they should be able to honor their advertised price for the said figures.

    My first PRiD wheeljack had that issue. Was really sad when I opened the package and his arm flew off as soon as I touched it. Got an extra pair of swords out of it for returning him though, so it wasn't all bad.
