    The instructions and pictures showed (2) sets, yet mine only came with 1... and I can't find anywhere else in the packaging where there would be another one.

    Are there supposed to be 2 sets? Or did I get gypped and should exchange it for a proper one?

    Yes, there are suppose to be two.

    Personally, I didn't really care about his missiles. They look silly as a hand held weapon, so I just threw them in the parts drawer.

    Yeah... they do look kinda silly as handheld weapons... and due to the size of toy I was nervous plugging them into his arms in plane mode.

    Maybe I'll take the lazy way out and simply discard the weapon.

    There is a special area in his bubble for the second set. I can tell you that when I opened mine they fell out and I almost didn't notice it. Check your floor and your couch cushions!

    They do look a little silly as hand-held weapons. I just keep mine attached to the forearms in bot mode.

    Yeah, and I saw that. Then I began to wonder to myself: "did you see it there when unpackaging... or not?"

    So I started looking all over my workbench. Then under it.

    Not only did it fall, but it hit the cement floor without making a noise and blend in well among the dust bunnies.

    So... I guess these 2 missile racks are supposed to be uneven?

    But man- these posts are way too tight for a figure this size. Plus, he's back-heavy and won't sit on his landing gear! :lol 

    We need a Deluxe next.

    I have to kinda agree that as a gun it looks silly....but in plane mode....it would look like he's packin' some serious heat.

    Yeah, that's a shame. Cause it's neat that they even bothered to put little landing gear on the figure in the first place.

    Still a cool little toy, though.

    Yeah, I was kind of annoyed that powerglide tilts when you lower the landing gears.....ah well. If any gripes about the toy, that'd be the only one I had.

    Oh yeah, definately! I knew when I was buying this little guy I was gonna get a little guy. And they fact that he has retractable landing gear is a definate plus.

    I'll jusy have to find a way to load his nose fill of lead or something.

    I am content with this one. Still want a Deluxe tho. Maybe I'll have to hit the drawing board (cad program).

    lol I do find the fact that people originally complained about the Ultra being to big, amusingly ironic.

    The problem is the second missile rack is not taped in at all.

    I've Opened two of these powerglides and each time that Second grey missile rack rolls onto the floor.

    Best thing to do is to consider where you opened it and retrace that area. Maybe pull out the other rocket launcher as a visual cue.

    Or whatever. If your bargaining posture seems dubious. Just exchange it for another powerglide.

    I was wondering the same thing once I started transforming my PG. Mine only has one rack, I looked all over for maybe a fallen second rack but to no avail. It's alright though, I've got a small shelf for weapons/ect.
