I need help in a big way and I'm not sure where to turn, or if this problem is common, so please forgive me if this issue is widespread. I'm in Melbourne, Australia, and I just picked up an imported copy of Takara's reissue of Megatron, which is awesome but for one major issue: the plastic strip that holds his left leg to his body has been put in upside-down. Anybody who is familiar with G1 Megs will know that the grip of the pistol splits and both halves folds forward (each on a strip of plastic with a hinge at either end) to become the legs. Well as one of the strips has been placed incorrectly during manufacturing, one leg won't fold all the way forward. Effectively, this means he can't be fully transformed - $175 out the window unless this can be rectified. The only way I can imagine doing this is pulling the whole figure apart, somehow turning the piece the right-way-up, and reassembling it. But I'm worried I won't be able to put it back together, or that it won't help (not sure how I would be able to get the hinge attached to the leg to come apart). The other option I can think of is gouging out plastic from the trigger guard piece, which would allow the leg to move forwards far enough, though it would be damaging a good figure and also would not guarantee a perfect fit. What do I do? Any ideas, suggestions?

Please help!
