    I have been trying to tf my Alt Prime back into vehicle mode, but I just can't seem to get the parts to line up. Once I get the doors and cab hooked into the back, I can't do a damn thing to align the hood. Any idea what I'm missing?

    Yep. Put your thumbs in under the front wheel arches and press very firmly.

    Yeah, those hinges the arms come out on are very tight. There'll be a satisfying click when they go into place.

    Thanks for all your help, but it seems that wasn't the problem. I just hadn't pushed the legs in. Damn those suckers are tight.

    What's the magic trick to get those buggers to go back in? I have, so far, been absolutely unable to do so.

    This may sound wierd, but you have to "gently" push real hard. Hope that helps, and if it doesn't, push harder.

    Thanks for the... interesting advice, OS. :D  I finally managed to get the legs collapsed, but to do it, I had to essentially tf him all the way back to bot mode so I could fit my fingers on top of his hips to gain leverage. I don't see a lot of transformations in ol' OP's future.
