Nomad, congrats on RSX! Seems like the kind of thing that you should call WowWee about. Did you put batteries in the dongle? I heard it requires batteries?(Not 100% sure.)

I just unboxed a brand new ROboSapien X and saw nothing like you are talking about. Everything looked nice, tight and professionally built.

Did you call WowWee? It also could've been a problem with RoboShop, selling them extra early and all. A stupid guess, but I'm willing to bet WowWee wouldn't just do a half- job putting together any of their products.
