    during the transformation, when i push the tab on his back to bring down his waist, i have to force it down and it clicks 3 - 4 times and its LOUD! it feels like i'm breaking it. its been like that since i got it and i thought it was just normal. after many transformations, it still works but im afraid one day its gonna break. the reason i'm worried only now is because i was bored and i was watching some of Peaugh's (sorry if misspelled) reviews and his prime just dropped down when he pushed the tab.

    anyone else have this?

    ... you know it SPINS when it goes down, yes? It doesn't just drop down?

    Yeah, it's supposed to spin down. The sound you're hearing is the automorph gears scraping against each other. All you're supposed to do is just push the tab in and the legs will spin down and into place (then you spin them back up manually and lock them in place with the tab to go back to vehicle mode). If it doesn't spin, just prod the legs slightly to get them started.

    ...or do like me and remove the gears entirely so it's all manual and there's no crappy Automorph BS to fool with. ;)

    argh I always clicked it alot to get it back to truck mode!
    Seriously the proper way is to spin it the other direction? Not okay to do it the other way?

    i think it just goes from truck to bot mode automatically and then you have to "click it" back up, at least i think. i was wrong before so....
