    So my local Wal-Mart restocked the voyager sized Cybertron figures, and I picked up Soundwave this time around. After transforming him to a robot the first time and trying to transform him back, I can't get his legs to stay down, and therefore his cockpit won't stay down either. I did a google search and read some other forums saying that this is an issue others have encountered, but no comments on if it was fixable or not. Anyone else have this issue and have you solved it at all?

    I remember I had that problem. I can't remember what the hell I did, but I fiddled around with Soundwave until I got it back. I think it has something to do with his hips. If I can get him out of storage, I will try to figure it out.

    I remember a lot of people having this problem, but mine was always fine. energon and cybertron figures were always finicky with the little tabs/pegs aligning. you need to get EVERYTHING just right.

    Yeah, Soundwave is a finicky figure. Some days, I'll transform him and for the life of me I can't get it, then I'll go all the way back to robot mode, try again, and everything pops into place perfectly.

    I was never a huge fan of this figure. I really didn't like the "wings" that you couldn't do anything with when he was in robot mode. Oh yeah, and the fact that he was a really finicky figure!

    Yeah, I sold mine a couple of months ago. I wish that I had kept the Laserbeak that came with him though...

    Those blasted legs! He's extremely hard to transform thanks to them. I never really figured him out.
