    Please post pictures if you can, especially if you got Skids to stand without looking down. The back of the car prevents mine from looking up.

    Also, anyone want to post a picture of the bottom of Skids in vehicle mode? I think I'm doing the legs wrong, since his leg prevents him from rolling on his wheels

    Getting him sorted into vehicle mode can be a real pain.

    I heard that in order to figure out if Skids has painted teeth or not, you can look into the vehicle and see his face. Where exactly do you look? I'm not planning on getting him for now, but if that changes, I'd like to have an idea and so far can't figure it out.

    Nothing of note at the West Dundee or Hoffman Estates Targets today.

    Just look really hard through the side windows; bright lighting helps. You should be able to barely see if there's a glimmer of color on his face - chances are you'll see the silver tooth if its there. If you're looking in there and can't see anything, they probably aren't painted.

    alright man here you go. it all has to do with how you fold his back pack up. ill try and describe this best i can.

    first fold him up like u see in the pics. make sure the little tab on his back is snapped in as well as his arms.

    now take the back of the car and peg it in slot behind his head. when u push down on the back of the cab it will give some resistance. there is a spring or something in side where the cab folds in.

    in the picture you will see the 2 green pieces of the top of the car coming over the right and left side of his body. push and move those up past and behind the arms at the same time since you are moving one whole piece. it should break or disconnect that spring or whatever. it will not compromise transformation back to car.

    this now allows for the cab end of the car that pegs in by the back of the peg to sit back more but still connected allowing the head to sit back more. if the spring or whatever does not break or disconnect just leave those hood panels on the side behind the arms since it will keep the cab pulled back.

    hope it helps!

    I looked basically straight down onto the top of the vehicle (like at a 90 degree angle to the roof), and right where the top of the windshield starts, you should barely be able to see down in there. Find some good lighting, and the teeth should be very visible. If you don't think you see them, that means the teeth are not painted.

    Gotcha, I'll have to try that today. At least I have an idea of where to look now.

    Anyone seen the darker Sideways anywhere recently? Preferably in the northwest suburbs?

    Thanks everyone for the pictures. Got Skids in car mode fine, and I think I did the robot mode right. No spring breaking thing, but head is more straight

    Go to the xbox website and go through the repair procedures. I had to call xbox, but they sent me a tag in my email to send it out with and I got it back in about a week, red ring fixed, and a new disc drive. I actually think they sent me a refurbed unit.

    Crystal Lake Walmart has 2 Ravages, 1 Mudflap, 1 cannon or whatever Bumblebee, & 1 Barricade all on the island. Back in the aisle is 1 Mixmaster that I stuck towards the back. No Voger Megatron or Fallen though.
