    Ok either this thing is on WAY too tight or I'm just not doing something right, but for the life of me I can't get it off and I'm afraid if I use any more force I'm gonna end up breaking something. Please don't let this be yet another figure I've have to return in the last few months.

    NOOOOO the propeller is hinged dont pull it off! The instructions tell you to remove it but you are just supposed to pull it enough so that the white base is visible so it can spin

    I sent in a thing to hasbro about it, probably just get some copy and pasted answer. But for god's sake, the instructions are CLEARLY showing the propeller being detached from the toy! I can see some parent trying to do this for their kid and breaking it! <_<

    Not one to double post if I don't have too, but I found this to be so stupidly hilarious not to post. I emailed hasbro regarding the directions being very misleading and also went on about how the Leader Sentineal Prime was also not very easy to transform either due to the poor directions. So what do they do? Email me a packing slip and tell me that'll send me a replacement and if they same one is not available, then one of the same price range will be sent instead.

    Uhm.....hello? NO WHERE in my email did I say they were broke or defective.....and if I'm having such issues with the directions, why would sending me the EXACT same toy make it easier for me? <_<

    Thanks for posting this! I've been trying for days to pull the propellers off mine. Those instructions are clearly misleading indeed. :(

    Yeap misleading instructions from Hasbro. I totaly would have broken mine and ripped the propeller off if I hadn't read the toy's review on here which said DON'T instructions wrong.

    But lets be realistic...If its the same toys I got I'm not really getting it for free beings I already originally payed money for it. The only other leader out right now is BB, I HATE movie version BB and don't own a single mold of it in any shape of form. In regards to Skyhammer, the only other voyager I'm considering getting thats out now is Megs beings I own Shockwave and not getting Prime, and you know I'm not gonna get the one I want/Need.

    They sent you a form letter. That's all. Don't send it in unless you want to get a random figure (probably from ROTF instead of DOTM) of equal value in return.
