    Well today was certainly an interesting experience for me. I went to Toysrus to look for Transformers (with a tiny bit of hope that I would see some RTS stuff). I decided to purchase Terradive and when I saw that there was a buy two get one free sale I decided to get Breacher and to mix things up I got a Star Wars Transformer. When I began to transform terradive his nosecone would not buge. I tried using my hands. I tried using my mouth. I tried using a fork, hell I even gave it to someone to help but had no luck. So on my way home I stopped at Toysrus. I left with 14 dollars and 3 cents. Screw you Quality Control I'm going to buy a book later this week.

    Try a video review:

    YouTube - terradive

    I haven't transformed mine in a month or two, and I don't have him here. I remember there's a trick to the nosecone though.

    He's one of my top toys for the year, I'd give him another shot!

    A piece not moving doesn't really equal broken.

    You seem kind of impatient, Ezim.

    I'm happy to say that I have never tried using my mouth to transform a TF. I'm trying to envision a scenario where I would go "hmmm, maybe if a bit the damn thing", but I can't come up with one.

    Yeah his nosecone is a bit tricky the first time. Once you get it you're alright. :D

    You're aware that you have to slide his nosecone out before you fold it up?

    Do you have any issue with flipping out the Classics Seeker fists? I'll admit to using my tooth on stiff parts when my nail can't find a grip.

    I've never had a problem with the Seeker fists myself.

    I go with the mini-screwdriver (heck, ezim's fork is something I've done before).

    Chomping on the TF, particularly Terradive's nosecone of all things, is a hilarious mental image to me. I just get this picture of him raging out and attacking the thing like a mad dog.

    You should have asked about this here before returning it.
