    Does yours have trouble with the feet? Seems like mine won't stand straight up. He will eiter lean back and fall over or he will lean forward and do the same. I finally got him to stand by spread, turning, and bending the legs to give him an "action pose." Haven't transformed him yet. I hope he's cool.

    Also, I'm new to Cybertron, he's my 1st & only so far, so what do the numbers on the back of the Cyber key represent? The number is 165x?????

    his legs arent designed to stand straight. they have to be angled backwards a bit, and the front of his feet have to be tilted up a bit.

    Mine's got the same issue, but it's not a really significant one IMO.

    As for the planet key code... you can go to www.transformers.com and enter it to unlock some information about the character - every character has their own key code, and some of the unlockables are pretty interesting (while some are cheesy as well).

    Mine likes to "Lean Back" and sing Fat Joe songs, luckily he hasn't toppled over yet.

    If you angle the feet as described by others, his weight will help balance him out and actually stand up straight. At least, that is how my GF Galvy works.

    The number "1" at the beginning is probably not a "1", it an "L". That is how Prime & Megatron's keys are. The first character is the size class. There was much confusion over that issue when the line first hit.

    Methinks you need to take a closer look at the packaging.

    Mine have issues with that as well. It's no big deal, but it does require some care when standing the big dude.

    What they said.

    Eventually, I found a pose that's mostly standing straight up, put him on the shelf and left him there.

    He's still freakin' awesome, but... between positioning his feet and all the cool, newer toys I've been getting, well, he's getting a break. ;)

    The problem with the feet is that they angle funny. Push up on the toes until you hear a click. Then the ankles will be nice and strong for a straight leg pose.

    The toy freaking rocks. The color scheme, maybe not so much the weapons, but everything else.

    I just wish that the leg-hip joints were completely ratcheted, like C-Prime. I doubt there would be problems in that case. :(
