    Yes, it's another thread for this guy. He looks awesome, but at some point soon I kinda want to transform the guy to see his fantastic jet mode.

    Any tips on what I should avoid doing while going about transforming him? I want to avoid cracks.

    When folding the wing tabs up or down, do it slow and apply pressure at at least two points by using two fingers. Those are his most sensitive regions (I feel dirty saying that). Otherwise, he should be a cinch. Just stick to the directions and dont rush anything. This is a masterpiece, not a FAB, enjoy it like a good ale, or a good woman. :thumb

    Also be carefull with the nosecone, it is on a very small tab that it swings open on that can snap off.

    Adding to the nosecone thing, if you're trying to open it to check out the radar dish, make sure you extend it forward first. Don't just try to hinge it open, or you're asking for trouble.

    And make note of the smiley face tatoos on his thighs. They're there for who knows why.

    I've found the pannels above the wings in bot mode (attatched to his torso) a pain in the ass to manipulate with the whole "I might break the wings" mentality, so I take those off before I even start (along with the guns/bombs)

    Easy way to avoid that. Open the side flaps, then fold the intakes down(they only fold a little), then swivel the panels up and out of the way.

    In my highly esteemed professional medical opinion, you should turn it from a robot into a jet plane. It's not rocket surgery. Don't throw it at any walls or explosive devices during the transformation, and you should be fine. It's a ridiculously complicated toy, but it's still just a toy.
