Yeah, agreed. I really really like Blitzwing, even more than Springer honestly. He's big, beefy and very G1 style. I even figured out a way to wedge the top bits of his shoulders into his chest rather than using the bits that are supposed to (but don't) clip in to hold his shoulders/arms in place and he looks good and is perfectly functional (I can rotate his arms 360 degrees without the shoulders popping out of place). Mine is the Takara version, but I'm sure the same could be done with the Hasbro version.
How'd you fix it kimosabe? I also have the Tomy version and it really distracts me (the d@mn shoulder issue) on how awesome this mold should have been. Btw Dealer is also a fave of mine, despite being brick (the G1 version), he was quite advance for his time.
