    Trying to bring him back to robot mode, it looks like I'm breaking something when I tug down on the nose. Shouldn't it simply flip up and down? What's locking it?

    I had this EXACT problem. There is a flap above the head that you must fold up.

    It's not in the instructions because it's not relevant in robot-to-jet (it falls neatly into place). Bit of an oversight.

    Watch this video as it shows very clearly how to do it. Start at 5:30. I hope it will help you. :)

    Ok I got it. The panel was sort of stuck in limbo so I had to poke under with a screwdriver. Looks like I did stress the hinges but no real damage. Thanks much!
