Hasbro Quality Control.

I was gonna post this in the Toys section, but only a handful of us check out that section.


I want to hear about any and all quality control issues you have had with Hasbro Boy Toys in the past two years.

THIS IS NOT A "Bash on Hasbro" thread, there's plenty of those throughout Hisstank.

Have you bought a figure with paint apps that makes you wonder, "How did they okay this?" Have you had an item fall apart just from removing it from the package? I am sure there's other quality control issues out there. This is specifically for Hasbro toys only. It doesn't have to be G.I. Joe, it can be Transformers, Marvel Universe, or any other Hasbro toy.

I've gotten consistently bad paint jobs on some portion of every figure I've gotten since RoC it seems. Most of the PoC ones seemed better for whatever reason, maybe made in smaller batches?

The Retaliation stuff has been OK, but I think that more has to due with the fact that they are molded in 1 or 2 colors tops.

Legs on cap figs made of super soft plastic. Very inconsistant paint apps on MU. I've seen jubliee with eyes all knids of jacked up. Most people have seen poor Bruce Willis. Spaghetti swords but I guess that's some kind of safety thing. For a while joes had great paint apps but Colton and lady j even some ninjas I've seen have been getting bad.

I've gotten some derpy eyes lately (Colton and X-Men Rogue)... but I don't think anything will ever top their Indiana Jones line for crappy paint apps.

My Retaliation Wave2 Storm Shadow had his bottom jacket piece molded wrong. :( I emailed Hasbro and the replacement they sent me was a Red Ninja. I guess I should be happy they didn't just send me a WV1 Roadblock.



Too bad I didn't notice it before buying it.

Lol, nighthawk they just sent you a better figure!

I picked up an Avengers Black Widow the other day and the figure's legs were totally rubbery. Ah well though, her head and gun belt went on a spare RoC Baroness anyway!

I got an Alley Viper for my son that was from the cobra island 7 pack and it had not been glued together at all after one play it fell apart, all it took was some superglue but still.

Had my child been one of the many fatherless children out there that kid probably would not have brought another, kids arent stupid they look at their treasured items very closely, I bet it would be shocking if we could somehow find out how many kids were put off of Joes because of poor quality!!!
