    So I got the Mixmaster toy, pretty cool voyager btw..But the toy has a little issue. The ladder of the truck mode of the truck mode seems to be bend. Any tips on how to fix it?

    The ladder on the truck mode is bending? If that's the case gentle pressure (putting it in the correct position) while lightly warming the rubber/plastic aught to get it back straight. You may have to do it more than once to get it to really hold.

    It's a remedy I use regularly, just be gentle/careful.

    Would a lighter work for that?

    That's good to know Omega Jolt, thanks! Mine is bent... more warped... too, as I assume everyone's is right out of the package.

    Keep it a good distance away if you do, open flame causes....problems. The best method is something like a hair dryer. (On the low warm settings.)

    On the other hand, pretty good toy. A little creepy and gorilla like botmode too. The transformation is kinda complicated tho and it could use a gun, aside from the missile laucher (is it me or a good bunch of the Revenge of the Fallen toys lack firearms?).

    They do and they don't depending on how you want to look at it. Mixmaster IS a firearm in tank-thing-mode and it seems to be Hasbros modern stance to build the weapons into the figure now. That's fine by me since it reduces the number of parts you have to keep up with. (Gone are the days of one peg hole and 3 guns!)
