    Recently picked up the Takara #8 Inferno reissue, and I noticed that in robot mode, the chest (cab section of fire truck) doesn't fold all the way down--it's kind of stuck up at an angle so that Inferno's robot torso is pointed slightly upward.

    I was just wondering if this is normal for the reissues, or if I need to use more force to lock the chest down.

    Thanks for any help!

    My Hasbro version has no trouble at all... I can see an issue with the torso poinintg downward, but not upward...

    Thanks, Soundblaster. That's really weird. The chest on mine does "click" into place, but then it's just stuck in this up-angled position with Inferno looking at the sky. I've been pushing down hard on it, but it just won't lock in any other position.
