    I was curious
    I recently bought Energon Shockblast, but found upon opening, that his waist in robot mode was incredibly floppy, there is nothing to connect it to the hips, so it just sort of flops down.

    Is this a widespread issue, is mine missing a piece,
    I have followed the instructions to a 'T', and still it will not connect to anything.

    Also, one of his legs cannot connect to one of his back pieces when he is in satalite mode.

    Is there anything I can do to resolve this, if anyone wants to see the joint or inside of the waist and hip area, to see if there is a clip or something missing, feel free to ask for pictures, as this is the only thing ruining Shockblast for me.

    It's a design flaw.

    I don't knoe of any Shockblasts that actually connect at the waist. Mine is nice and tight so it doesn't flop around though.

    It's a flaw. It's even worse with his bro-bot Sixshot, apparently.

    I envy your luck. My Shockblast was fine to start with, but now he's getting floppy. I want another one but he's hard to come by with a good price.
    My sixshot was very floppy when I got him. He's got a broken shield so I want to replace him, too, but I am not going to risk it :(

    if you play with him or transform him fairly often, he will get loose; I don't mind that so much as that mine didn't come with one of the solar panels for his shoulders and I never saw another one to buy a replacement.

    That reminds me, anyone got an extra solar panel to sell? PM me and I'll tell you which side and whatnot.

    My Shockblast is a little loose at the waist, but still holds together well, my Sixshot is very tight, but 1 of my cats ate 1 of his cannons on his right ark

    This is news to me. My Shockblast is nice and solid. Weird. The pin placement must be off on some of them or something.

    Mine is also solid... I also didn't tranform him too often.
