    I got all Netflix figures except for Scrapface. Guess those are being hoarded up for cameras. Keep finding tons of Sideswipes and Hounds shelfwarming.

    Yeah it's definitely the camera thing. I was going to look for more Scrapfaces for people but LA county has some issues right now and I'm just going to stay home for a while. I hope you can find some soon though.

    Dang dude! I finally found 1 "hiding" on a top shelf and snagged him. Not interested in any other wave 1 guys or multiples of scrapface... I can swap him into the 3pack easy enough for a different color scheme just fine

    The neck post on my Netflix Mirage broke clean off during first transformation. The head seemed to be on that ball really tight; fused is a good description.

    Luckily I was able to exchange it for another one at my local Walmart.

    Dang! That sucks, I'm sorry. So, the rumors and complaints are true. I'm not sure why they sent them out like that, when clearly there's a problem. It's not the first time, though, so I shouldn't be as shocked as I am about this. QC is not their strong suit.

    First one I got was the same way, took it back the next day for an exchange. I suspect that there was some overspill of the glue that holds the head together that connected with the ball joint.

    Found my post that first mentioned the issue, back on 5/14, though it kind of got lost in the discussion since new figures were leaked pretty shortly after that post

    I went to Walmart today because I needed motor oil. I found Ultra Magnus on clearance. I had no plans to ever get him (even on clearance) but I'm weak willed when it comes to Transformers. I hate his colors & wish there was a way I could trade it for the original. I also picked up 1 Scrapface even though I said I wouldn't. I think I have a problem. :( 

    I was just watching a warning video on Youtube saying that happens to Hound. I was surprised to see your post said Mirage.

    I'm probably reading way too much into it, but isn't it amusing how on Sideswipe, the guy who's a warrior that never backs down, all of his battle-damage/scuffing/discoloration paint applications are on his front and not on what would be his back? As in, he never shows his back to the enemy because he never retreats?

    I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but Smyths is showing Netflix Ultra Magnus as being in stock for home delivery in the UK, so if anyone over here is looking for one, now's your chance.

    I think I might paint this Ultra Magnus into Delta Magnus & then try to get a regular Siege UM.


    Edit: Nah! I'm going to return it & get my money back. The price is great $35 but I just don't like it. I like the original better.

    One of the not quite local Walmarts here (that carries Leader class) had 4 Ultra Magnus figures but not on clearance. That figure is not worth MSRP. $35 might entice some just for the Rung redeco.

    Snagged the last Scrapface at the same store, though.

    Got everybody except Magnus and Chromia. No interest in a barely changed Magnus at that price with a small handful of accessories or a Chromia without lip stick.

    I do want her piece of the Teletran display, though . . .

    Was it a Hound or Mirage that broke for you?

    Edit; checked your old post and saw that it was a Mirage.

    Definetely. My copy currently has custom paint drying. Soon he'll look similar to his siege version with extra wear.

    Cancelled my 3x camera figures and Mirage that I had on preorder, with the laundry list of preorders I have coming down the pike and recent G1 spending, I just couldn't justify random repaints at this point that I have no real attachment to. They do look nice, but gotta set some kind of priorities I guess.
