    Somethings wrong with the front part of my 08 BB. I cant put him in car mode for some reason. All the parts that are supposed to come up and down dont align properly and the front side is too far front. Woe is me, what do i do?

    Edit; Fixed it. Thanks for your help guys. You have to keep adjusting it up and down until it clips as one piece. It's frustrating, but possible. I had to pop off all the limbs, including the head, that are on ball joints to get a better view.

    Check the gears and the parts that form the automoprh. Maybe the wheels aren't in place.

    I have a co-worker who brought in her nephew's 08 Bee with a similar problem. Somehow it had skipped 3 or 4 teeth on the internal gears where it's not designed to be able to slip around. I had to do some major disassembly to get it to work again.

    This is such BS. It skips gears completely randomly. I took apart everything except for the problem areas. I cant find my screwdriver right now so I cant disassemble it completely. Oi.

    This is the main reason i don't like the automorph gimmick. it'skinda cool the first few times but if it breaks it's difficult to fix without taking it apart.

    The AutoBreak gimmick strikes again.

    Personally I think the gimmicks should be kept out of the transformation. I hate Blackout because of his chest gearing problems, even though the rest of him is pretty cool. He's ruined because of the gimmick.
    Heck, I buy a Transformer because I want to transform it myself, not leave it to some crappy set of gears which go wonky usually right out of the box.

    Glad you got your figure fixed in the end though. :)

    Yessss, I'm personally not fond of Blackout & BB09's chest automorph due to their fragility.

    Broke mine in a simialr fashion (think I posted in BB's feedback somewhere...) and almost had a heart attack, scrambling for my tools to disassemble and fix it.

    Meh :banghead:
