    Hello, I was wondering if any of you could help me,

    I got 20th Anniversary Prime for Christmas, and I've been trying to get his
    right leg (I think its his left when in robot mode) to go all the way up and I'm
    having trouble. I don't understand the instructions, it looked as if I was to push
    the side in and then push up; but that didn't work either.

    The left leg goes up with no problem, I just have to push it up and it moves okay.

    Thanks, and I tried youtube.. darn it, you all Transform so fast on there that you
    can't really see what on earth is actually going on...

    ^^^What he said. Sometimes, for some strange reason, the leg won't slide up/down the thigh after you press the gas tank. That's fine too. I've lost many square inches of my hair transforming Prime's leg.

    You just have to believe that pressing the gas tank will allow the leg to transform. If it gets stuck, it just means you didn't press the gas tank at the right angle/amount.

    Press it more at the bottom of the tank as you'll probably notice the fuel tanks sit at an angle on his legs pushing them from the bottom straightens then out allowing primes legs to shorten

    This is the most correct advice so far. You'll notice that in the middle area of the gas cans(i.e., halfway down) you can see the pin that the cans pivot on. The top end of the can is what locks the legs in place, and pushing the bottom part of the cans unlocks the legs and allows them to collapse properly.

    Thanks, both of you. I kept trying that before I posted this topic, but when I tried
    it again (a little gentler than I was doing it before, I'll admit) it went up very easily.

    Thanks for the help.
