    Buy the TFC Prowl and Smokescreen, the Japanese know the art of working missile launchers!

    Indeed - the Japanese Space Program is using toy missile launcher spring technology to fire their spaceships into orbit. So far they've had to pare it back because their first attempt shot the craft past Mars and right out of the Solar System. They also took out someone's eye.

    Hi all,

    nfoutback11 posted this query on my behalf.
    I have a G1 Sideswipe and the problem is with his shoulder missile launcher.
    The trigger on it is extremely loose (ie. it moves the full length of the launcher just by tipping it).
    The spring inside moves around as well and there is not way to actually manipulate it so the missile can be compressed against it (and the trigger locked down).


    Hope you can help!
