    Am I the only one with a masterpiece megatron that has scoliosis? I took out the guts from the scope and it is still heavy. How does everyone deal with it?

    Look on his right hip and pop out the square connection on the joint. This will prop up his right side and make him stand straighter.

    where front of his feet are, u can raise the panels that are there originally to fold the feet in transformation. use those flaps and raise them so that the leg from above the ankle joint and up can rest on it.

    I lucked out and got one that stands and poses with his fusion cannon raised. I was overjoyed as Megs is one of a three-way tie of my favourite TF's.

    The other posts contain useful tips.

    Seems like people that bought a reissue Megs with the plug have all the problems.. Like they didnt build them with the same care the second time around . i see people complaining about the ballance , the metal discoloring or him being loose and so on .. I wonder if the new run of Ultra Magnus is going to have problems too..

    Leave this joint unsnapped and he won't have the goofy gangsta lean. It's only noticeable up close, and displaying him with the scope will eventually cause the soft plastic in the joint to sag a little. Thems the prices of looking menacing, though. Hope this helps.

    I didn't have the opportunity to get the first release. Had to settle for a damaged megs due to my low funds.

    I tried both methods. Not perfect, but helped a lot.
    And I like the feet panels raised up look.
    Scope is still heavy and bulky, but what can ya do?
    Thanks guys for your help.

    Oh man, is it recommended not leaving the scope on? I don't want to damage the already damaged figure.
