    So I've been tinkering with my prime for the past day and he looks cool and all. tons of fun.

    Then I was just looking at the back of the box. On mine, for the knees, the flaps flip up to show yellow boxes, in robot mode. The flap is over the actual knee.

    On the back of the box, it shows the flaps flipped down, over the shin, with the yellow up. The same yellow that is up on mine's knees. I can't see any way to pry the flaps off to flip them around either.

    Then, if you look at the instructions, it's the same way as the package, except that they flip the flaps up, so that the flat grated section is up over the knees.

    So, everyone, what's the right way to have prime put together? Yellow over knees or shins?

    Also, should there be black pain on the inner parts of the smokestack lasers?

    the knee pads flip up to show yellow boxes.

    hasbro, as usual, has no idea how their toys are supposed to go together.

    The box images show the misassembled version, the product is assembled correctly inside. Goofball Hasbro once again being inconsistent.

    Personally, I prefer the way the knee-pads are on the toy alot better than the box pic:

    Lol. I just noticed Classics prime has a yellow spatula on his crotch. That makes him even cooler. :)

    Tell me you didn't throw your box out before you took out the trailer. You didn't, did you?
