Classics Dirge Incorrect Thighs?

Postby bengear » Tue Jan 04, 2011 7:17 am

Has anyone opened up a Dirge only to find it has incorrect thighs? (you'll easily notice this when you find that one knee only bends backwards). I'm unlucky and got a dirge with two right thighs and his left leg only bends backwards. I can live with it (It's not like the seekers can really stand up well with bent legs anyway and you don't notice it when they're standing straight up) but would like to fix it if possible. I don't have the receipt or packaging anymore so I think a return is out of the question.

If anyone opens up a dirge with two LEFT thighs (meaning his right leg bends backwards) would you be interested in a swap? I think you can pop off the ball joint at the hip and unscrew the lower legs to remove the thigh assembly entirely - I haven't done this though.

That's a rather common missassembly problem with some iterations of the Seeker mold, followed by two of the same fists. Not as common as like 1 in 10 (more like 1 in 1,000), but still enough have been reported for it to start becoming worrisome. I've been lucky so far with my 4 (Skywarp and the 3 Coneheads), and I know my luck will keep up with Classics/Henkei Starscream (can't decide between the two) and Generations Thundercracker.

2) RiD Landfill (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The only issues i've ever had with the Seekers was when Thrust was release, mine had 2 left fists/hands! no leg or launcher issues...yet! Still have Thundercracker to contend with when he is released.

It's very common, I had a Henkei Starscream with a similar problem. If you can live with it then that's fine. I would just buy another while they are still cheap available at retail (at least in some areas).

don't forget the messed up decepticon symbols Dirge has since his release. I found one out of three in a Target had corrected Decepticon symbols.

Only such thing to happen with any of my 4 seekers (both Starscreams, Thrust, and Dirge, all Hasbro mass release versions) was my Thrust had two of the same missile launcher. Well, that and the error Deceptisymbols on Dirge, but that's a different issue.
