TFWiki to the rescue:
Thundercracker's instructions show him with his wings sitting somewhat high and his left arm relying on the stiffness of its swivel to stay up. On the Hasbro version of the mold, a defect makes this swivel loose, and as a result his heavy left arm tends to fall down. This was finally remedied with the addition of a pin for Divebomb. However, a closer look at Thundercracker reveals his instructions screwed up. His wing assembly is supposed to sit lower on his body, and the left arm is supposed to swivel in farther, locking in place between the chest and the wings.
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis
