    I have some problems w/ my leader movie Prime. In truck mode, the nose panels won't stay in place. All the panels are out of place with each other, escpecially the side panels. The tab that connect the 2 halves of the rear tires together are showing some stress, too.

    Sounds like the waist might not be oriented properly. Is the back half of the trailer correct?

    Can you take pics?

    Take your time and spend awhile with it- everything fits together very logically, unlike some of the other molds in the line.

    You have to make sure all of the front panels "snap" into place, especially the two panels that swing out from Prime's back. If there's already stress marks, you may have bent one of the tabs already.

    Off topic, but I need to say it... You missued "manipulative" in your signature.

    The bottom looks correct, but I can't tell what's going on at all in that other pic.

    I think the blue half of the shin armor is out of line relating to the upper half.

    When I first put Prime in truck mode a few of those panels didnt quite line up. So I just slowly pushed each one until they fit snugly. Then it all seemed to lock right in place.

    You probably haven't snapped the armatures that the hood parts swing on into place properly. It takes a bit of force to do that.

    What armatures? if you're talking about the graty connector, the top hood is perfect.

    The side panels, the ones that swing back horizontally and end up on Prime's back, should physically snap onto the top panels on the nose of the truck. I didn't realize that at first, either, but one time I had everything lined up just right, gave it a push, heard a nice little "snap" as the pieces fit together, and the whole thing snugged up wonderfully.

    Mine's got a problem where one foot won't stay transformed.. the little tab holding the "bumper" in place in robot mode won't stay put, so the foot keeps snapping back into truck mode every time I pick him up.
