    I got it for Christmas and every gallery, review, and the instructions say the hips should swing out and up a bit so it separates his legs more but mine doesn't seem to have the mechanics for it, it's a solid hinge at the hips, no way to slide, fold, or turn upward to be higher up. It's the second run from the 30th Anniversary packaging, did they change up the transformation mechanics?

    :lol  Blame my father on that one! It was a Christmas present, I had no choice in the matter. He knew I liked Star Wars and Transformers, but that's like saying I like fish and chocolate, does not mean I like them mixed all the time.

    I've got the first run version, and i'm pretty sure the hips don't swing out, but the panels that form the sides of the xwing's nose do swing up. But I could be wrong. It's been awhile since I messed around with it.

    Its not that bad a mold, the only real problem it has is that hideous head. As for the legs. The two panels fold up and then the legs fold up slightly to spread them a bit in Bot mode. The ball joints at the hip are on separate hinges, at least in the original release, not sure bout the recent release.

    You can kind of see it in this Pic from the Siebertron Gallery.

    I think that settles it cause mine doesn't have balljoints at the hip, it's a hinge joint... Well damn, thanks for that one Hasbro. [/sarcasm]

    I'm surprised they'd change the mold like that. On mine its ball joints at the actually hip of the leg, with a hinge connection from the ball joint to the crotch. Which gives him a surprising amount of poseability actually.

    Would like to see a pic of how they changed it on yours.
