    So many of you probably have noticed that something is wrong with @BotCon Hoist / Electro's torso. There's a #BotConFix for that.


    How he looks out of box (for some of you, some didn't have this problem). This is a factory misassembly:

    There is a small piece inside of his chest that has been placed in there backwards. Thankfully, it's a really easy fix.


    To start, take out the three screws in the piece that forms the center of his back:

    Then remove that piece, as well as the chest piece from which you have just unscrewed it:

    See that little piece of black plastic with a spring underneath it? That is what is backwards. This little bugger here is the cause of all your problems:

    There are those little notches in the ends of the piece. You want to stick the piece back in so that those are still visible.


    In other words, you want to stick the piece back into the chest with it going in this direction:

    Screw it all back together and that's it! just one little piece was put in the wrong way. The fix let's his chest swing into proper place and also give him more head clearance for transformation.


    (Also, be careful of the spring, as both G.B. Blackrock and Boardwise note:)
