    Picked up this figure and when it comes to storing the two pads at the rear of the vehicle either one fits on perfectly but together there is not enough space and pressing hard just causes the other one to pop off.

    Am I doing something wrong or are the pads just a bad batch?

    Haha we both have problems from these TRU exclusives, don't we. The storage tabs are a bit annoying. Try finnagling with them more, they should stick. If not, display him in bot mode, unless you want to display in vehicle mode, to which I say not to bother with the paddle storage. Hope this helps!

    There is a right and a left version. They are not the same.

    Yeah. If you look with the connector slot at the top you'll see one side of the pad block is slightly wider than the other. When stored on the back of Ratchet the wider sides of both pads are together in the middle. They've got 'R1' and 'R2' inside them. When looking at Ratchet from the back the 'R1' pad should be on his left clip.
    Does that make sense? I can't be arsed to take a photo.

    Excellent. The OP has everything they need now. Back to the undersea base until we're needed again. :)

    Thanks for the info.

    I now know the problem, my Ratchet came with two left shock pads. Both are labelled L1.

    Doh!!

    Personally I don't bother with the shock pads, they're in an accessory box along with missles and other whatnots.
