    how the %*#$ do you get deluxe animated bumblebee back into car, I've been sitting here for half an hour now, and I just can't get it. I even read the instructions, they're useless.

    here's my problem. (I even pulled pieces off to see what's going on)

    That's as far as I can get it to go, he seemed to transform into robot mode no problem, but now I can't get him back

    Fold in the hands, pull out stingers and put them together. Put arms above head. Stingers fit in between the front end of the car. The back end of the car is the base of his chest piece.

    Hope that helps, sorry no pictures....

    There's a piece on the torso that occasionally gets caught. I don't know what the trick is though to prevent it from doing so; I just tried mutliple times before it finally worked.

    You've probably got his bumper stuck inside his torso. That happens from time to time.

    I'm betting your trunk is stuck. Does the back look like this?

    Because it should look like this:

    It's a REALLY easy fix. Pull his torso back out closer to its robot mode position:

    Now look at his back. See that support strut "spine" that goes in between the clear plastic bits?

    [​IMG]

    Push on that with your thumb as you rotate the chest into car mode. Should clear the issue right up.

    Yeah, its that dam bumper. Figuring that one out was a pain in the arse, and it still does it fairly often.

    TFA BB is a bit of a mess to be totally honest. :(
