    Right now I'm using Brawl and Blastoff (the tanks) as the legs for my ROTF Bruticus. Every picture I've ever seen has the arms somehow shifted down towards Bruticus' feet in leg mode.

    How do you guys do this? Mine are always hanging way up near Bruticus' kneecaps.

    Did some searching on the net to illustrate what I'm talking about since I'm not home. Basically mine looks like this

    But I want it to look like this:

    Is there a joint I'm not noticing somewhere?

    Yup. The chest joint/top of the tank is on two joints.

    Yeah, there's another pivot under the turret. It's kinda hidden so a lot of people miss it.

    So do I pull on the turret or fold some other part?

    the arms and chest are mounted to a plate. they can rotate on that plate, and the plate can rotate on the body part that it mounts on.

    spin the plate that connects to the body, at the point that it connects to the body, right above the tank robot's crotch (it doesnt connect to the body in the center of the plate)

    You know how the turret can twist 360 degrees? well, under THAT joint, there's another one that does the exact same thing. It's basically the back plate that the turret sits on top of. It's colored different than the chest. THAT part rotates too.

    Funny you're asking this, I've recently bought ROTF Bruticus and I almost broke the tanks trying to do the same thing. The instructions don't show it. Same thing with ROTF Blazemaster, it took me forever to figure out his correct transformation.

    It confused me like hell at first, the pivot there is really tight, but it's not something impossible to do
