For your frustrations of a purely Transformers related nature!

The jaw of my Device Label Cheetor just snapped off.

If you're trying to convince me to handle / play with my Transformers you're going the wrong way about it

My transformers-related frustrations? Waiting for that box to arrive in the mail and waiting for the figures to be released once images have been posted (including prototype images).

Yes, I'm impatient and hooked on this plastic crack. Once you have those figures in your hand though, there is nothing sweeter.

Just brought a replacement RtS Wreckgar as the handle bars on my old one snapped off. A fairly common occurance apparently.
First transformation and one handlebar has a strass fracture up the brown plastic and the other is beginning to crack

well i don't know if this should be a vent or a rare acquisition but just turned my new DoTM Soundwave from ALT mode to Robot mode and found that he has 2 left hands. AHHHH! damn you Soundwave!

It's a vent; rarities like this - generally speaking - aren't worth much because there isn't much of a demand for them. People will pay for a rare variant or something, but not for a freak defect. So somewhere out there is someone who owns a Soundwave with two right hands...

The first Generations Drift toy I bought had two of the same hand, so I know the frustration. I bought another one then refunded the defective one. But yeah, it's worse when it happens with a toy you got from overseas (unless you bought it from an online store that might be able to do an exchange for you?) <shrug> If you stick the big MechTech weapon on his right side hand then the spare left hand may not be as noticeable on display. It'd be hell annoying when you play with it though. Ouch. XO Otherwise maybe if you find another Soundwave get that one, then sell this defective one to recoup some of the cost?
