    I just got back from Kmart a few hours ago and picked up Revenge of the Fallen Skids. VERY AWESOME figure I must say. However....I'm having difficulties converting him back into his Beat mode. I can get most of the car formed but I can not, in the life of me, get his legs/doors back into place. I already looked at video reviews but that mainly shows how to get him into robot mode. Detailed help would be greatly appreciated, thanks! :)

    I'm not sure, I kinda had the same prob yesterday when I opened mine. The only advice I have is you got to just keep fiddling with him.

    Ohh and one more thing, the legs that kind of bend up underneath the front of the car...you gotta pull the knee joint so it's all kind of straight. Hope that helps.

    That roof piece is tricky. Have you got it straight? Is that maybe getting in the way?

    Or maybe his legs aren't folded up at the knees all the way?

    I dunno, if we could see a pic of where you're at I could help better.

    I can get him pretty much inside the car but, his hips are lower than the wheels. I can't seem to fold him any tighter. Makes me feel sorry for the 4 year old that wants "the green one."

    One mistake I initially made was trying to get that little clear tab on the door to fit into the little recessed area on the outside of the frame it connects to. Even though they line up, the tab is meant to go underneath, not over. Only other advice I can offer is to try rotating the front tire panels a little to help it line up more.

    Check "D13anksak47" on youtube. He's one of the only reviewers who shows you car to robot and back for the reason that sometimes going back to alt mode is harder than then the car to robot. Maybe something there to help.

    That's the exact same problem I had; I just didn't fold the legs right. I got it all figured out now. Thank you very much natureboy and all the rest of you who tried to help! :)

    Wait'll you get Mudflap. Easier by comparison but he can be a little bitch too :)

    Mudflap's the one I want most! He's my favorite of the Twins, although Skids is just about as awesome. Too bad my local Kmart, Walmart, etc. don't have him though. Is it true that Mudflap's doors fall off easily during transformation?
