    I noticed that the two fold out pieces on the lower torso of HA Sideswipe has the same piece both times, just one of them is flipped. It should've been two separate pieces. In the first picture you can tell that they are the same and just one is flipped. In the second picture you can see that because of this, the one on the right of the picture can't close all the way. Is this just on mine or does anyone else have this?

    If you can't return him anymore then just hammer the pins out and flip it.

    Mine isn't like that.

    Although I have to say I have yet to actually get mine to flip out at all. One of these days I'll need to take a kitchen knife to it and start prying, but they look so small- is it really worth the effort getting them out?

    Ya know, I didn't even know those pieces existed until I came into this thread. Mine look fine though.

    EDIT: Oh, hey while we're on the subject of newly discovered tabs n' things, what's that rectangular piece under the rear section of his car mode? It's on the piece that you spin around onto the hood and windshield. It's like a little rectangular bar that flips out. What the heck is that used for?

    If you have the exhaust pipes rotated around like cannons over sideswipes head Epps can put his hand on the bar to look like hes controlling it.

    I know, but it's easier to see the problem while it's up.
