Okay, so I finally got around transforming Blackout today, mine came from the Desert Attack 2 pack, so it came in robot mode right out of the box. The instructions said to slide both shoulders/arms backwards, but it did not make any sense, so I went searching for a video review on YouTube. Turns out that you need to pop both shoulders out. I tried popping them, it was really tight but I managed to do it. Then came the horror, both shoulder tabs had serious stress marks on them, the left side even cracked a little, still holding very tightly, but cracked. Okay, so my OCD self is now telling myself to get another 1, but after reading several reviews, it seems that this happens quite often but upon watching some video reviews on YouTube, it seems that most people pop the shoulder out with ease, but mine's very tight. So is it a design flaw or did I used too much force? Could I have handled it better?
