    I got him a couple weeks back and after messing around with it still can't get the cockpit to stay in place in robot mode. It just tilts up from the bottom every time I push it down. Skywarp is fine, but that little tab on TC just won't stay in. Is there anything I can do?

    Funny, my vintage TC has that same problem. I think for mine it is a result of heavy wear though.

    Both of mine suffer from that problem. Their heads stay in position, but even the slightest push will slide them out of whack. The clips don't hold very well. I haven't really played around with fixing it, but perhaps a little clear nail polish on the side of the clip that latches might prevent the problem.

    For vintage Seekers, I only see this problem on pre-rub jets, and the main reason for this is because they don't have the washers that the rub ones have:
