    I picked up Rhinox today and I dont think I mistransformed him (dont see how I could) and it appears that the shoulders are reversed.

    Here are some pics (sorry about the quality, I used phones camera):

    The picture on the box shows the screwless side as the front.

    it would also appear that the upper arms (biceps) are also swapped.

    So to fix we would need to remove the screw, remove the forearms and rhino legs, swap shoulders and biceps, reattach forearms and rhino legs.

    At least its not pins like the Ransack fix.

    I mentioned that in the TF feedback area. They're all like that AFAIK. Out of curiosity, I looked around a bit and noticed all the Rhinox test shot pics from auctions and the Botc on display had reversed shoulders/arms too. Luckily, it's a relatively simple fix, and even leaving it as-is doesn't really affect the toy, aside from seeing the screws on the shoulders and slots in the upper arms.

    Yeah swapping them around is no problem, odd that the original isnt like that.

    You know you would figure someone at Habro would have picked that up while they were being produced

    I can't do the fix. When I switch them, the left arm is too loose. Guess I'll just keep them with the screws facing out

    The fix is easy, just that mine would then have a loose left arm.
