    I have a question about Generation One Hoist. I have had the CSV TRU reissue for a couple years now, and have had an issue with his transformation. That being every time I transform him, there's one point during the transformation, where I pivot the yellow towing section up to conceal the head, but when it passes over the head, it scrapes the sides of the head, thus removing the sticker. This lead me to wonder: Are the stickers on the correct areas of the sides of the head? or is the mold for the yellow towing section off a bit, causing it to scrape? I have said head stickers placed on the vertical sections of the sides of the head, and not on the angled sections. These would be the red/black stickers. Can anyone tell me if I've place them on correctly? or if they've had any similar issues?

    I would suggest iy's a slight molding flaw...

    it's a narrow fit on mine, but the stickers are not scraped.

    Yeah, I have a vintage hoist and it doesn't scrap either. Fits through just right. Must be something with the Re-issue.

    I had an original that did that. G1 was rife with poorly placed stickers that scraped off when you transformed the toy.
