    If anyone could send me a link or give me a step by step process of Animated Swindle's chest fix, as the chest on mine doesn't close in fully. Thanks.

    On some the joint on which the lower half of the chest swings isn't tight enough, so gravity makes that part hang open in robot mode. (at least I'm assuming that's the problem here.) I'm not sure how to tighten up pin hinges like that though.

    Actually, it's the joint which the chest swings on but, when I swing the chest up the top half of the chest gets caught on. I hear that it was a common problem?

    That's his stomach. His chest is completely stationary through transformation, it can't move.

    What's it getting caught on?

    The window 'pecs' that Swindle has. The double jointed swivel needs to go down a bit more, but i think it's something to do with the pins.
