    Hi, for those that have FoC Swindle (retail version). The head on mine won't fold into the body at all as directions show. Seems the head is hitting plastic or something. Anyone else have this problem at all?

    well then the only thing i can think of that's stopping it are these tabs (yes i realize one of the transformation tabs is broken):

    Mine does this too. It looks like the head is physically too wide to fit through the hole. If I turn the head to the side I get it down a little farther.

    i ran into the same problem. i bought 4 swindles and all of them have the head problem. the neck cavity is basically too small to accommodate the head.

    i wish they had QC'd it a bit better. oh well, there are worse things in life to be upset about :) 

    still, thanks for listening.

    Mine won't fold straight down. I have to turn his head a quarter way and then swing the head down as I turn it straight. Hassle.

    Bit odd as I don't have that issue on the G2 version - but I had a similar problem on the G2 Onslaught his head would sit right until I attacked it with a blade and scrapped some material of his neck mount.
