    I have been trying to fiddle with it and figure out how it can lock.... is it possible? If someone knows how to do it, mind describing or giving me a pic? help is very much appreciated.

    Push the ladder in, and twist clockwise.

    how did you turn it enough to lock? It seems like there isn't enough clearance. I was just trying that yesterday.

    its supposed to, but a lot them, mine included, don't catch when the ladder is pushed in and twisted.

    You probably have a defective one, mines locks when you "push & twist".

    It just clicks into position. It's only a slight twist, but it ought to work unless the inner workings are broken, I'd have thought.

    Poor quality pic, from my ipod because I don't have my camera handy, but it shows how it locks.

    If it's broken, which it sounds like, you might be able to force the gears? I'm not sure. I can do it a bit, but my joints are tougher due to the layer of paint.

    Mine sort of locks, but the slightest tap anywhere on the gun and it'll snap shut.

    originally, from reading reviews, and searching high and low I thought the locking was just a rumor and that Voyager megatron was the only voyager mechtech not locking (ironhide's doesn't count since it doesn't have an alt mode) but damn, so many defective ones out there, or maybe just mine.
