MP Cassettes QC Issues

*going with TV names

Nothing wrong with Ravage, Frenzy, or Buzzsaw. Some paint scratch on Fenzy's gun and Buzzsaw's wing, but not a big deal.

But something wasn't right with Rumble as soon as I took him out of the box:



That's right, two right arms:




As for Laserbeak, the pin for the left thruster I think was misfired. I hear squeaking when I move the piece and it takes some force in order to get it to move. It still transforms, but it's just a bit too close to where it should be and as a result, a lot of paint rubbing where the thruster meets the body:

Luckily, the left wing covers most of that up, but it still tears me up instead knowing that is there....

Going to email TFsource where I got the MP cassettes and see if they can do something about Rumble.

So, how is everyone else's cassettes?

Re: MP Cassettes QC Issues

Man, I feel your pain, good luck with your rumble
as for me, my laserbeak has also some small paint rubbing at the same places as your laserbeak but not buzzsaw
but my mane issue is with my frenzy, the ball joint of one of his leg keeps popping out without any force, the strange thing is that is not even loose, its juts pops out easily when I transform him, luckily, no issue of that type with my rumble.

Re: MP Cassettes QC Issues

My Rumble has a messed up eye, as well as two of the same gun.

Still a cool mold though.

When I get my Rumble I will check. I hope it is fine. My one LB wing is tight but doesn't rub or ruin anything thankfully

Nothing funky with my cassettes. Hopefully you can get it resolved from wherever you got them from.

That pin problem, I got one with the FOC Grimlock I got from Robotkingdom. Because of that, the arm is all loose and won't transform properly. They asked me to send a picture of the problem, which I did, and after that, they ignored all my emails regarding the issue (but still replied to the ones about potential purchases).

Re: MP Cassettes QC Issues

Pascal, they may possibly be still looking in to the issue. Sometimes it isn't a quick resolve. They may have to get authorization from Hasbro or something...or maybe they are jerks. Either way, the first one is still possible.

Re: MP Cassettes QC Issues

Takara's QC has definitely been shoddy lately. My Frenzy & Ravage set was fine except for 2 of the same piledrivers (so I couldn't store one of the guns since the slots were facing the same way), but my Rumble has a paint app issue on his crotch :P and Buzzsaw's head camera has the joint crooked so it flips up at a weird angle.

They do mass produce this stuff, so I do understand that there is going to be the odd issue here and there but the quality has dropped off more lately.
