G1 Victory Leo - the two front white plastic landing gears located on the chest in robot mode are fragile/brittle. I just discovered that one of mine is actually broken as I have never bothered transforming it. I have also seen this on other Victory Leo's on the internets.

Question: Is Movie 2007 Protoform Starscream prone to GPS? His elbow joints are INCREDIBLY tight.

Mine's had bits snapped off, but it's second hand and I can't remember if it came like that.

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...
you are right-most of what i mentioned are probably overuse/age issues.

Another one is the clips at the waist tower of Grand Max. They are easily broken and not way to be replaced due to the METAL PIN on the tower waist, damn it

Sadly, 2003 RiD Megabolt suffers from GPS.

Universe 2.0 Powerglide arm ratchets are too tight. Twisted the arm right off second time transforming it.

Movie 2007 Transscan Bumblebee joint sockets prone to snapping, both the legs and waist have snapped on mine.

Don't know if it counts but the shoulder pins on my Animated Wreck-Gar always work their way out when transforming and I have to knock them back in with a hammer or something.
