    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has posted a way to fix the reversed "boob" issue on Thundercracker and later run Skywarps? I did a search, but I couldn't find anything. (Yes, I know the figure has been out for over a year, I've just finally gotten tired of looking at those two being assembled wrong, and I want to do something about it now!)

    You can't really do it without tool assistance, without damaging the toy. Those pins are in there good, and any sort of hammering is liable to damage the relatively thin pieces around them.

    Check for watch pin removers on eBay, just a small little vice-like tool. Don't get the big pallet-looking ones, you won't be able to maneuver them around the parts.

    Could I find these in a local store, like Wal-Mart, Rite-Aid, or a hardware store?

    If anything, a craft/hobby store might be a better bet, as those tools would be useful for some styles of bracelets or whatnot. But doubtful, as they're an awfully specialized tool.
