    Does anyone else have a Megatron with a non functioning Mech Tech Gun. No matter how hard I try, i cannot get the gun to stay in expanded mode. Does anyone else have a non functional Megatron gun and does anyone know how to fix it?

    I had to push extra hard until it "clicked". Then it would stay after I twisted the ladder. Before, I could twist the ladder and it would just pop back out. I only had to click it once, now it works perfect without anymore clicking.

    With the ladder facing you push it in then turn it to the right x

    I think the complaint is that doesn't always work. It didn't on mine. Like I said, I had to make it click first.

    I removed the springs on all the MechTech weapons so I they would stay in place.

    I highly recommend it.

    Mine works fine. It's remarkably sturdy despite not clicking.

    None of the Megatrons at my store seem to have this problem... But I have HELL with Ironhide's cannon.

    Yeah, mine too now. It doesn't click every time. Just that first time.
