    I have had Universe Nemesis Prime for about 3 months now and I just tried to transform him into Mammoth mode for the first time. I GOT MY ASS TOTALLY KICKED!!! An hour and a half and he's still not near right. The instructions may as well be in an alien language. anyone els have this problem??

    Definitely. I managed to get him into his animal mode (after many weeks), but he still looks kibble...ish because I cannot transform him correctly. I've just kept him in bot' mode for now.

    Yeah he's pretty finicky to transform. You just gotta keep fiddling.

    With Big Convoy and Universe Nemesis Prime, you sort of have to put some pieces in place like you are molding from clay. Gentle pressure to get the pieces in place is what helped me. Anyway, I think Nemesis Prime looks far cooler in robot mode. I love his Death Matrix! :D

    I've tried, lord, how I've tried. Never made it to mammoth, and I've had it since it was at retail. He looks too good as a bot, anyway.

    Which Ironhide?

    Those that want good, cheap fun... BWN Break Vs. Deadend is the place to be.

    I find it funny that movie Ironhide has Big Convoy's head, considering that neither seem to go into alt mode easily.

    Yeah, Big Convoy is a bitch to transform. Took me a long time to figure out when I first got my Korean one. I'm proud to say, though, that there is no transformation that I haven't managed to master (although I still can't transform Alt Wheeljack without his doors popping off, but that's the mold's fault, not mine).

    The Alts. pose no challenge to me, Just Universe Nemesis Prime. And it's comforting to know that i'm not alone.

    Transforming Universe Nemesis Prime always makes me feel like I'm putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Probably due to the "shell" pieces. I agree, it is quite a difficult transformation.

    Big Convoy is one of my all time favorites so I don't have any problems transforming him. The first time was a little difficult but not a big deal. Every time after that has be easy. Once you learn exactly where everything goes it's a piece of cake!

    The main thing you gotta learn is how to properly position his legs. Also make sure the cannon/trunk/back of mammoth is snapped in the correct position. Once you get those 2 things mastered everything else kinda falls into place.

    And yeah, transforming Vader into the Death Star is the ultimate pain in the ass!
