TRU Reissue Rodimus Prime assembly error

Recommended Posts

I saw the post on TFormers.com (TFormers link), and sure enough, my reissue Rodimus was also assembled incorrectly. I had always figured that something was wrong with mine, as he just didn't quite fit together correctly in robot mode.

 

Anyway, the problem is, I want to go ahead and take him apart to flip the yellow piece around, but I've already applied the sticker to the waist panel, so I can't get to the screws underneath so I can completely take apart his torso.

 

Any suggestions on how to gently remove the sticker without damaging it?

 

Seriously... that's a pretty bad error though. Minus one more point for the Hasbro QA department. :monkey

I would contact Hasbro directly, not the point of purchase. They have made an assembly error on a "collector's item". They should recall this product. They should give you something to rectify this situation from a customer service aspect. It may not be a new Rodimus toy, but they should stand by their product. :tfmad

I think I may try that and see what happens. I'll email the customer sevice dept right now.

 

As for returning it, I doubt that would work. I dont know where I put the receipt, since it was a few weeks ago that I bought it. :tfsad

 

I'll let you guys know if I hear anything back from Hasbro.

 

In the meantime, if anyone can think of a good way to lift the sticker.. I'd still be open to that.

SON OF A B****!!!!!! Mines messed up too!!!!!!!!!

 

Well I fixed mine, I very very very very carfully peeled the sticker up, and fixed it, but still wound up hurting the sticker some, but not bad, a few places I had to use a wee bit of super glue on a stickpin head to get it into the cracks of the sticker to hold a little place in the corner down.

What you could do is get another and swap them and return. Not the most honest means but it will get results...
