    are you lifting the hood ornament back up and locking the hood under it?

    yep. it wont lock. i see where it's supposed to but it wont.

    on another note, mine doesn't have the autobot symbol on the ornament like the package does. is that normal?

    i may just glue a tiny piece of styrene under the hood to try and catch it better. it's almost like the hood catch is missing or is a point to short.

    Maybe replace it for a less strong spring. I don't know if it's possible, I don't own the toy.

    Yea, pull harder on the hood ornament. Even if it seems up, it may not be all the way. Took me a while. If it breaks, blame me, then take it back to the store.

    Did you try pulling down the bumper and pulling the grill forward after locking it in at the top?
