got mine today. only problems so far are the knees being too loose, the legs not pegging into themselves tightly in robot mode (the holes for the pegs are way too big for the pegs), and an instruction sheet that doesn't give you adequate instructions for transforming him properly to beast mode. does anyone have the original dirgegun instructions? I really need a scan of those

... okay, so they're the same instructions... I don't suppose anyone can tell me how to properly peg the arms onto the chest?

Thrustinator is a bit of a QC nightmare. His black bug legs on the forearms are swapped, his gun does not fit in either hand, the alt mode head wont stay pegged together and his knees are the loosest things since loose moved to loose town. I can't get the figure to stand for more than a few seconds.

It will be easy enough to fix these problems. I am just curious to know if anyone else is having similar issues, or did I just get a dud?

BUT, still glad it's confirmed, because seriously, I need a sports obsessed robo jock in my collection.

Funny how there's been zero fiction about him though from IDW. Is he related to Rewind? Do they even know one another?

Haven't had a chance to transform him yet, but yes to the smaller bug legs being swapped. I've never done any surgery on the Waspinator mold, so I don't know how easy it is to pop them off those rods without breaking anything.

Of course the funny part is, these problems are wholly appropriate for the character. He had to have been reassembled improperly a few times in his career.

The gun fits on mine, just... no other weapon, his fists are just like, just a tiny bit too small for 5mm weapons. Damned beast wars era non-standard weapon sizes

My Post Office lady handed me mine as I was leaving thehouse for work. Knew I shoulda clawed for the news credit... Oh well.

Goit mine, My Thrusty seems to be good and tight. Wasp legs backwards, I knew they wee colliding with th wings oddly but I hadn't noiced they were upside down. I have balance issues with mine, but I think that's sim[ply wieght, his knees peg in alright to the shin, although theactual knee peg itself not so much. He feels... rubbery. He's not, by any means,but the plastic reminds me of a wet piece of thick rubber on a hot day. Just interesting to note.

Really like this figure, he by no means fits anything in my collection (everyone in my collection is part of some story, the Universe effect) But I like him and I'll keep him.

I've discovered that the thing that annoys me more than any mold problems is that I can't get all 4 of his smaller feet to touch the table at the same time when the arms are pegged to the chest.

If anyone finds a 'perfect' match to repaint that big yellow eye to blue, please post what color you find.

Mine had swapped black bug legs but it's fine otherwise. Thankfully that's the easiest fix ever since those aren't screwed or pinned in.

Mine had the legs reversed, no issue there.

But it did have a pin that was no pushed far enough into the body, preventing the gun head mode.

Kind of lame. Their QC really has been lousy lately.

Got my Thrustinator yesterday and he seems fine to me except for the reverse bug leg thing. This figure was one of the ones I liked least but now that I have him in-hand, he is actually pretty cool.

I had the swapped bug legs on mine too. Also had something wonky with the hip (think there was excess plastic inside) that caused it to break once the screw was in. So I'm getting a replacement figure from FunPub. Hope the new one has proper bug legs. No problems with the gun or head...

Baltmatrix takes a look at the, hilariously named, Thrustinator! Take a look at the big pink thrust here!

A lot of these issues are due to the mold being quite old. If we want neat, occasionally vintage molds... this will sometimes come with the territory. And honestly, I DO like them digging deep for some of these... like the G1 headmaster for Botcon. Very cool surprise.

As for issues that are fixable with a quick swap (like the black bug legs) thats no big deal. We need to complain about the big stuff and let those easily remedied issues slide... big QC issues, if we like the character choice, mold selection, etc.

Well, technically, they didn't have to dig too deep on the Headmaster head since it was made available by Takara's Encore Fort Max release from last year. It even has the same "backwards thighs" misassembly the Encore release had (but this is minor since it doesn't affect the transformation or playability).

I know they didn't have to look hard for it at the factory, but really I meant "digging deep" chronologically ... like, outside of the box of the last wave of toys released.... but I get what you mean.
