I have both the Hasbro MP-Soundwave and MP-Optimus (mp-10). Both have fingers that detach very, VERY easely. Especially the trigger finger. Both on Soundwave and Optimus, I had several cllose calls of nearly missing those fingers. Sure, you can re-atach them immediatly, but losing them is a risk and would suck immensely.
also, don't get me started on those other QC issues I had over the years:
-Some TFs with very weak joint that snapped like glass.
-Amason Unicron's minicon Kranix that came with 2 right feet.
-Alternators Oprimus prime with his gun-engine that have two right panels (or are assembled backward).
-My 90$ Henkei voyager Optimus with a botched paint job on his right wing.
-G1 re-issue Ultra Magnus have a missile-pod peg crooked at 45° on his left shouldertip.
-Voyager Deep Space Movie Starscream have his nosecone that dont peg properly in vehicle mode.
-And some other that I may have forgoten.
Does that mean that all
Transformers are ****? Of course not. It's still suck every times a QC issue is happening. Especially for brand new items bought online.
