    I must be STUPID or something
    so i got the voyager ironhide (movie) to transform into a robot

    but now im getting him back into a truck
    unfortuently his waist area is PURTRUDING out the bottom of the truck
    and it doesnt allow his arms to fit under correctly

    can someone PLEASE make a video
    or something so i can see a CLEAR step by step transformation...

    Unfortunately as black as ironhide is, you won't be able to see much in a lot of videos.

    From the sound of it, you don't have the joints in the waist at the right angle.

    I always have problems on mine with the doors/sides not being able to clip in properly. Much grunting, exertion and swearing later, it all fits in. But yeah, the hips should be at a 45 degree angle back and up from the horizontal line of the waist section, so the two pegs on the bottom face forward and down to clip into the arms.

    Been a while since I transformed mine, but as I recall, there are two part of IH's waist that clip in for robot mode. One of them doesn't peg in very securely, but the other one stays in place well enough to be missed, when putting him back into truck mode. You've got a part of his waist that unpegs hard still in bot mode.

    Ok bro since u requested a clip, here's one on youtube. hope it helps.

    (i empathise with you b'coz when i first got movi Ironhide it took me 1/2 a day to figure him out. but when i found dis clip, dat's when everything falls into place)

    Iron Hide is definately one of the more frustrating ones to transform.

    When that happens what I usually do is line his arms up with the bottom of the truck as far as they'll go and then give it a nice smack. It usually snaps the waist/hip joints into place and the arms go flush with the undercarriage.
