Is anyone else seeing the new AWE Strikers (Target exclusive and tan version) falling victim to sagging rear suspension? I've only had both since they debuted in stores last year but when I roll them along the floor the rear wheels scrape inside the wheel wells.
I know Hasbro is using softer plastic for parts which is most likely the direct cause of this problem but all my two AWE Strikers do is sit in a display case... Boo! I'll have to figure out some alternative to this problem. I'll most likely wedge something inside the suspension to keep it from supporting the full weight of vehicle.
Am I the only one seeing this problem? What sorts of solutions have other people tried to fix the suspension problems?
Thanks in advance for any help!

nah, my Target one did a little. I just repositioned it in my storage bin. I just noticed that my Rattler's front nose gun bent and it's just sitting in the box! I had the box standing up so now I'm laying it down. I bent it back, but I hope it doesn't happen again. The gun isn't touching anything. It's like gravity just sucked it down (well, to the side because the box was standing like you see them on the shelves at Target).
