    Take it back to the store and get Prime instead.

    In my experience, the cannon arm and thruster section just come off sometimes during transformation. However, if they're popping off with a lot of ease and you can't get the leg to peg in right in the tank mode, it might be best to just return it and get another one.

    It sounds to me that you got a defective one.
    If you really want the figure, take that one back and get another one.

    Are talking about the Leader version? The arm cannon and thruster on mine come of too but with the new deisigns of some figures I now just expect a few parts to pop off here or there (Door Wings on Classics 2.0 (Prowl/Smokescreen/Silverstreak). As for the legs not pegging in tank mode. Make sure you are transforming it correctly. I had the same problem with mine before I fiddled with it a bit a realized I was correctly transforming it. And yeah the instructions will be useless.

    The leg/tracks will peg in. It is a bad design, but when you are folding his legs up for tank mode, you need to rotate his hips until you hear a transforming sound. Then the legs will peg in easily. I had this problem too and thought I got a faulty one, but someone posted about it in the review thread.

    He's from Wave 1, and Wave 1 often has a few flaws with QC and design since they're thinking "OMG! Get 'em out fast!", and don't have time. He might have a few problems, but I say just return him. Very rarely do I get another junker when I make a return.

    If it's defective, return it. I have no problem going back and returning things if they are defective.

    Yeah same here. I don't have Megs yet, but I just exchanged my Prime for new one last night cuz the chest piece/windows were busted. I had to do the same with Ultra Onslaught cuz one of his "leg cages" was broken.
