i have the japanese TFA Ironhide and Ratchet (cybertronian mode) for some time and only recently decided to transform one back from bot mode to alt. for the past 2 weeks, been oogling enlarged images, videos, the instructions and couldn't figure out the way the rear legs work in alt mode. until i spotted a hinge on a leg. D'oh! i felt pretty stupid being stumped by a TFA figure- they aren't exactly Alternity, ya know- and wondered if you had been stumped by a rather easy figure turned complicated. i blame the instructions a little. but still, should have caught that in less than 2 weeks. lol.
