    hi! sorry if this is old.

    i just bought animated snarl yesterday to finally complete the animated dinobots. i was holding out on him coz of the mostly bad reviews and i just now realized the bad reviews stem from slag's mistransformed chest piece. i don't know if i did it right but i think it looks quite better than most of the reviews i've seen.

    and that leg gap thing adds a bit of height to his bot mode.

    the frictionless leg connection bits on his butt are easily remedied with a droplet of super glue

    configured in this way, the tab on his crotch area connects snugly on the hole located at the back of his abs.

    i love this bot and i just thought to share this.

    thanks!

    This used to be common information when the toy was new.

    It's been known for awhile but thanks for sharing anyway :) . It is a good tip for people just getting the figure. Makes a big difference between what the instructions say.

    thanks!

    really did have a feeling im a little behind with some animated beast figs. never thought i'll buy any other animal tfs aside from grimlock but those dinobots are hard to resist eventually.

    will ask for tips when i get to pick up animated black arachnia. :) 

    thank you!

    thank you, i just got around to picking it up today at target (8.99!) and was wondering why his chestpiece was so awkward and instructions were confusing.

    thanks!

    There's a button on the back of them you have to press.

    nifty. I missed this when it was posted before. That does look a lot better. Now maybe I won't hide him behind Grimlock and Swoop anymore

    huh, I've had him since he came out, and I knew about the knees, but didn't about the chest. He looks 1000% times better!
