Final pose for Bumblebee. Will leave him like this on display until I mess around with him again.

Now the wait for Optimus to ship out begins. Sleep

I gotta say, I still love Bumblebee, and can't stop fiddling with and posing him.

But he's my first 3A toy, and I have to wonder if it's common for them to need so much user-end TLC. I've had to reglue four pieces that have fallen off due to lack of glue, and conversely his gun arm's light switch is glued solid, and there was a ton of glue residue all over one side of his retracted battle mask's peg and hole that had to be cleaned out before it would fit on at all.

Is this a Transformers thing? A 3A thing? Me just being really unlucky with QC?

I am in the middle of a conversation with CS about replacing the gun arm, but I don't really want to send the whole thing back (nor do the little bits and pieces really necessitate it).

Well, despite getting a prompt reply from CS on the 5th in which they cheerfully asked for my address and offered to send a replacement gun arm, a week later I am suddenly required to send the arm back to them so their "maintenance team" can determine that there is a problem, because I guess I'm lying about the button not working? Because I'm trying to get a free gun arm?

Needless to say I won't be preordering Starscream until this is resolved, which is frustrating because I have no idea how long he'll be available - but I'm not throwing good money after bad if I end up with a defective/incomplete Bee and no way to replace him.

I see the horror stories about 3A CS are not unfounded. At least they seem to reply fairly quickly.

Frustrating, and taking a bit of the gloss off a toy I was very excited about and still very much want to love.

ThreeA make great looking toys. However, I have mostly stopped buying from them, apart from the 2000AD line, due to multiple cases of QC issues. Most have been sorted by CS eventually and with some pushing, but I got tired of being so frequently disappointed when I opened a box i'd waited so, so long for.

It is pretty standard protocol with 3A for defective items to be sent back in for repairs. They'll send you either a new part if it is in stock or repair the current part that is sent in after it has arrived.

You know, that's totally fair, and I'm sure I wouldn't be nearly as frustrated with the idea if not for the aforementioned "sure, we'll send a replacement" immediately followed by this turnaround that's going to lead to a big delay and introduces a worry, however misplaced, that they're going to decide that it works or something.

Then I guess it's better to be even more patient so at least you will get this one right LVFiftyFive. I mean you alreary paid for it.

I was having second thoughts about SS but I saw it ships 3rd q. of 2016 and I think 3A is going to get better in predictions and making of the transformers.

I assume there was a mix-up with Production Team (people who repair figures) or some language barrier issue and that's why there was a sudden change, but either way, it shouldn't have happened and sorry about that.

It sounds like the factory was surprised by both the complexity of and large orders for Bumblebee, so hopefully being forewarned will be being forearmed going forward.

My exclusive pillar is broken. Piece of the sharp legs came snapped off.

Trying to email cs@threeaonline.com but it keeps giving me an error.

Are you waiting for the spare part or you returned your Bumblebee and CS promised to send you the replacement?

It largely depends whether we have the stock of spares and how soon Hatchery has an opening to manufacture the spare.
