    Hey, I just bought Universe Blaster yesterday and I'm already having trouble with the legs. I'm trying to transform it back into bomber mode, but the legs don't quite fit right. The feet won't stay stuck in the "nose" and the side of the legs refuse to stick in the pegs. Anyone else have/had similar problems and know how to fix it?

    I'd provide pics, but I can't find my cameras USB cable.

    When I owned the Soundwave version of the mold, I just fiddled with it until they finally fit. I know that's not much help, but I couldn't find a consistent way to make it work. It's actually the reason I sold that figure.

    That's why I hate this mold. I have always had trouble getting the legs to line up properly.:mad 

    All I can tell you is what has already been said, keep fiddling with him and eventually you'll get it. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    It's a design flaw in the mold itself.

    it's not a flaw. it's just a picky transformation. they do fit together, you just have to line it up perfectly. keep trying - you'll get it

    This, basically.

    I remember eventually getting so familiar with the process that I could consistently do it with only minimal fiddling, but that time I'd already decided to sell him off. :lol  This mold takes a lot of practice to get just right.

    I recently picked up Soundwave and I have the same problem. It seems that one side fits fine, but the other doesnt, and the angle of 'hips' changes too. Frustrating.

    Well fastening the legs in place is a bit tricky, but pulling up the legs near the torso and keeping everything in place is pretty difficult. But you'll get used to it. I personally think Cybertron Soundwave/Universe Blaster is one of the better molds from Cybertron.

    Okay, since my OP, I have been able to keep the feet attached to the bomber's "nose" with the cockpit attached and have decided that that's good enough for me.

    I have a cybertron version of soundwave and i have the same exact problem. I never looked into it enough to try and fix it, I just got really frustrated with it so he went into my "Let the nephew's touch" drawer.
