Actually, just on the green one which is surprising. All later releases (the grey Special Edition and G2-colored United release) have it fixed, but all re-releases of the green have the feet wrong, despite them coming after the SE version!
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

I knew the TT G2 deco had been fixed, but wasn't aware about the Grey SE one, how they managed to fix it then un-fix it is anyone's guess!!

They probably updated the assembly instructions, but renamed them as well as keeping the original under the original name. You can guess the result.

... Severely overestimated it. "Derpy" would be a compliment.

It's Optimus, I had to be nice! :lol:

What happens to Darksteel and this? :O Also, I love this Prime more than the voyager... really.

Well, I don't *have* this set, but I've heard many a report that this set has some cheap-feeling plastic.

As for Darksteel (who I do have), his plastic feels notably cheaper and thinner than other figures from the same line, including Dotm Sideswipe, who he is a redeco of.

I'm considering getting this set this weekend, and can someone post a link or tell more about the incorrect legs or feet setup for this Megatron to fix him?

Put simply, Megatron's feet are assembled back to front: the piece on top of the short end of the "foot" is supposed to go in front. Yes, the "foot" is actually his heel. The legs only have two screws on the inside, but the halves take a bit of wiggling to detach. After that, simply turn the foot pieces around, then reassemble.
