    And you are fully entitled to it sir, but you may well be the only person who thinks this.

    I'll throw in the usual mold flaws int he Animated line, like Lockdown's hands, Bumblebee's stingers and Grimlock's arms.

    Also, ROTF Supreme Devastator should SHUSH but he doesn't.

    And ROTF Preview Bumblebee should transform into a car but he doesn't.

    '07 Blackout and his mold mates are really the definition of this thread. I was actually contemplating selling him last night because the automorph gimmick basically makes him impossible to transform.

    My universe Powerglide was assembled improperly and had one of the wires squished over a joint. One night I heard a clicking sound from the closet and it turned out it was Powerglide blinking and and playing the first two miliseconds of his transformation sound over and over. I had to take the batteries out to make it stop.

    Well, this might help in that there is a IR light in his cab window that you're supposed to point at a receiving point on one side of the trailer.

    Thank you.

    Animated Ultra Magnus shoulders. He looks awesome, but his lack of real shoulders was a MAJOR disappointment. He was a big ass letdown for me, but at least he looks good with his arms at his side, pointing down. No wonder he got his ass kicked with those short ass arms :lol

    I've an Armada Predicon and he's not broken, but for the life of me I can't get his tail to snap into place. It only flops.

    Doesn't work the way its supposed to.

    Mine has the same problem, mainly because the sword won't stay in the launcher. It closes perfectly fine when the sword is out.

    TF1 Megatron: Mace-hand has a lackluster missile-launching ability; the arm cannon springs back once you let go (although it's easily fixed by swapping the spring).

    ROTF Megatron: NO ELBOW ON RIGHT ARM

    ROTF Starscream: Pop-out missile launchers are actually molded into his hands.

    Animated Battle Begins Optimus Prime (probably my fault): Giant axe is very loose inside Prime's hand.

    ROTF Supreme Devastator's Mixmaster: WILL NOT SHUT UP

    Universe Galvatron: Everything pops off.

    I'd be inclined to agree. BB isn't anywhere near a kibbleformer, he's a pretty solid figure, about the only thing that is a mess, is his chest panels, that don't wanna stay in place. HA Sideswipe however...he gave the HA line the name Kibbleformer.

    Movie Scorponok. I like the little guy, but his stinger's kinda useless as it can barely reach whatever he's stinging.

    I'll back you up on this to a degree. Of the three HA figures that I own, Bumblebee is my least favorite. My big issue is the seats on his forearms. It just looks really bad, IMO.

    On topic, I have to agree with Armada Prime. The auto-transforming trailer did actually work for me the first couple of times, but then it quit never to work again...

    I may not have the toy, but have you looked at the toy's back recently? He has a car hood hanging off his back. That, my good sir, is definatly what I know as kibble.
