And I've had no issues with quality of the recent Legion figures; I think they're fantastic, in fact. Most of them have better quality than most of the deluxes they've given us since the beginning of the PRiD line! Sounds like you've just had a touch of bad luck with your Legion Wheeljack, but that's also an easy fix, just apply some clear nail polish to the ball part of the ball joint.
If anything, HasTak has really blown it out of the park with the Legion/Commander things. The quality has been pretty reliable, and I've heard very few complaints outside of your own, they really aren't fragile as long as you don't do something you obviously shouldn't be doing (though, obviously I can't speak for the Terrorpreds in particular, not having any of them and knowing only what I've heard from reviews and others), and the latter is a QC thing and can happen from time to time in any size class.
Thanks for the reply - I've heard of the nail polish trick but haven't tried it yet. Not really looking forward to buying nail polish to fix a design flaw or QC issue...
I think you're mistaken about the Legions/Commanders. Did you do a 2 yr old test?
My kid can destroy the Legions/Commanders in SECONDS.
The Deluxes stay in one piece. It speaks of the fragility of the lines, as I commented about earlier. Put frankly, there's less plastic and thinner plastic joints on the small figures - it's not a matter of opinion, but a simple matter of physics. Less mass = less solidity.
And I'm not even talking about snapping pieces - luckily, that hasn't happened yet. But the Wheeljack in question was only $3 (FiveBelow), so I wonder if it had something to do with the quality of products sent to the discount shops. Maybe it's coincidence, but I wonder...
Anyway, I will try the nail polish trick with Rippersnapper, and see if it helps. Thanks for the suggestion!
