    After watching videos on this dude I was really surprised that the red parts of his back didn't fold up cleaner to be better hidden from the front. I got him today and found that they do fold up better:

    Yeah, I ended up with the crotch screws in front. I checked the box photos and decided there couldn't be any Alternators Jazz third flip nonsense and popped the legs off. I had more trouble getting the head out. I ended up cutting the floss out of a dentek pick and hooking it out with that.

    It takes some force getting it in and out of there. I don't think they allowed enough space for his head to smoothly pass through that gap inside. I cringe more wrapping those rear quarter-panels around Slag's dino-hips than I do on this guy, so there's that.

    This is the easy way to do it, just a matter of rotating the leg and panel each 95 degrees in the right order...

    Got mine today! I had to swap the legs too. My issue right now is trying to get the shoulder section to pivot forward.. I don't want to apply too much force, but it just won't budge..

    Edit: what am I missing? I can't even get the tail section to swing out in half. He's just kinda stuck right now because I'm afraid of breaking him.

    EDIT AGAIN!

    Got it. I watched a video review.. Turns out I was trying to turn the whole torso instead of just the front part.. He looks good now, except for being a little bow legged..

    Yeah i had exactly the same thing on all accounts.

    The instructions are not clear or immediately obvious how the chest moves position. The back half of him seems tabbed solid and the tabs are tight, you think you have to untab something but once you lift spike panel up the chest slides forward(this was what stumped me how it moves as i guess it did you) and you shouldn't have to use allot of force to move it, so if nothing is moving under force you are probably doing the wrong thing... Once the chest is in position then you can prise open the tabs for the first time, ew tight.

    Yeah, one complaint i have is i wish the little "bow legged" joint tabbed so it wouldn't bend, it is such a small joint that it bends as soon as you start moving the legs for posing, kinda only flimsy part of him.

    Otherwise, like him a lot. Would take a new head for him but overall impressive.

    I got the full set of these guys yesterday and i have to say they are pretty darn nice, funky transformations on each and eveyone of them and they look great in both modes.

    So it's everyone's experience that folding this guy's robot head in and out sucks and totally lacks clearance, right? I was trying to figure out if I was missing something but it seems the consensus is that you just have to stuff it past the red plastic barrier :lol

    It is a tight fit.

    The part obstructing doesnt have much purpose, could be trimmed i suspect.
