    I know there is already a thread on MP Grimmy, but this is important info for those that don't want to damage their toy, so mods, please let this be it's own thread at least for the time being.

    You need to cover a screw with a small piece of scotch tape or the chrome will get scratched badly over time. Mine shows a very tiny mark, so if it weren't for this thread, it would have been bad. (Its hardly noticeable now). For the long term, besides tape, anything that would cover the screw head in a softer substance (a drop of glue maybe?) might work better.

    It's a simple fix. In b4 "ZOMG NOT WORTH IT $$$"

    It would probably be better to file down that screw. Thanks for the heads up.

    Chances are it's mistransformed then, because that's exactly where it's supposed to be.
