Those are the pins I mean. As well as that, I noticed there s a stress mark on both arms where the yellow peg connects to the arm. Kind of annoying.

I just checked mine. It's ok - Thankfully.

Mine is the original Classics release, was yours part of the 2 pack or was it like that out of the package?

I think it was the single pack. I can't remember, it was so long ago I think I still have the package for it, just have to look for it.

Yeah I ask to see if there is a manufacturing difference between these two releases. I have no stress marks on mine despite several transformations and even playing around to see if I can match the Protector 'before armor' configuration.

Yeah, mine does on his right shoulder. Has had a pretty bad stress mark there for as long as I can remember.

Default fragile figures...

these are a few fragile figures with issues;

-G1 kickback-yellow insect/robot ears-Bp/fragile parts

-G1 megatron-shoulder joint sometimes has brittle plastic where the shoulder socket screws into the arm(silver)

G1 jetfire-red arm weapons have Bp clips,beware some try to sell these parts with broken clips as "mint"(ebay o/s)
-jetfire has BP around plastic/metal shoulder joints(where the jet folds in half to make back and chest)due to incorrect movement
-jetfire is prone to stress marks on the black antennae on the robot's head due to incorrect movement.

G1 soundwave and blaster prone to broken cassette eject button/latch/door(not the case w/mine!)

hope this helps!

@ tjparkside - You sure these are common issues and not just problems arising from these toys being 25 years old and being handled extensively?

I know some people have troubles with Soundwaves chest compartment but I'm sure this is just from overuse. I've never noticed these issues with my Megatron or Kickback...
