Kind of amazed how awesome the Breakaway and Fracture repaints turned out to be.
You can see I opted for the Hasbro Silverbolt too. After getting him, I can safely say that an extra $25 is not worth the G1 paint job!
Blitzwing really is the shocker though. Others may like him but I wish I'd never bought him.
He's loose as shit and quite frankly he's just an ugly robot.
And what's up with the continued craptastic quality control?
Fracture's paint job... and even Breakaway's is kind of crappy. For me there's enough good in the figure to outweigh the bad. And they also were cheaper.
His waist is totally f'd up!
I've definitely seen this more and more. I think I'll start tagging the figures that have problems so I can look... over the course of the ones I buy from a given line... to see if patterns arise.
China is not going to become our Overlords with this kind of shoddy toy painting!
