    When you press Deluxe Ratchet's front bumper/chest part down to give him his gut, is it supposed to slot into something? On mine I can press it down to the point where the wheels touch the wheel arches, but when I let go the tension from the plastic snaps it back to the front. The pictures on Seibertron's gallery show the wheels right up to the wheel arches, on mine there's a pretty big gap.

    And is it supposed to be this hard to press the front down?

    My ratchet was hard to push the first time, but has loosened up over time.

    I thought mine was going to break the first time I pushed it down. It took a ton of force. I actually thought mine was broken at first. I decided, screw it. I pushed and fially it broke loose. Now it is just fine.

    I eventually got it down by prying the plastic pieces that hold the wheels apart, and I can sort-of get it down once every three tries. What's bothering me more is that pushing it down puts a lot of stress on the plastic - it almost looks as if there are supposed to be holes in it for the tabs to plug into, but it's just smooth plastic all the way, and I was wondering if it's a defect or just shoddy engineering.
