After owning this figure for a mere hour, I was convinced that the designers meant to have these propellers fold up, ala the G1 figure. Perhaps the factory sealed/glued them by accident, I dunno; but the fix was kinda simple, with a few delicate, tedious steps. Procedure: First: Use the ole' "heat the pin up" trick to get the props out. Once out, run an exact-o blade through this sealed up (glued) crevice to unlock it. Second: Once you cut through that part enough, it'll begin to wiggle. Once again use the hot pin method to separate the part you just cut. (Seen in the next photo) Once apart, you need to cut a teeeeeeeeny piece of plastic away, to allow the props to fold up cleanly. (this piece) Just to give you an idea how small that piece is, see the photo below: Next: Push the blades back together, and heat it up again, and give a good push to fit them snuggly back together again. Last: Take the entire prop assembly and re-fit it back to it's original place. Heat it for a sec and press it firmly back in. I used my auto-pin punch to give a good snug push. Finished product: Alt mode: Enjoy! Also: I should add, that IF you do plan on trying this out, rather than just admiring it on the internet, lol, there was one last step that I left out. You will also need to round off the edge of the prop in order to get it to turn nice and cleanly; you'll see what I mean when you go to do it. They have an odd shape on top, and the corners get in the way when you try to turn them, so you just need to take off like a few milometers to give it the clearance it needs to turn. That's all.
