    I was messing with the feet, and the front of the bumper piece or whatever its called, snapped off, now I got toeless sideswipe.

    While it is a small tragedy, and im gonna go buy a new one, to keep for back up. I took some wire cutters, and cleaned up the broken pieces a bit, and took off the other toe. he does look ok without it, at least he looks more like hte movie now.

    Ouch.. I guess you were too rough on it. I notice in video reviews, MOST of them don't treat the TFs with much care IMO, even Peaugh's.. =S But I'm sure you do, just that perhaps you were too rough, that's all. In my country, TFs are expensive so I treat them as best as I can, even transforming TFs takes quite a while to make sure I don't break anything.. >_<

    Anyhow, you did get a movie accurate Sideswipe, and if I were you I won't get another one. :) 

    Count this as a lesson, and just take good care of your TFs ;)

    :lol  That too.

    But what I am trying to stress is how many TF toy reviewers stress the toy to split it during transformation, or other things that involve stressing the toy at certain points. It hurts me whenever I see it happen. :( 

    Anyway, never mind that. This thread's not about how to treat TFs anyway xD. But just a gentle reminder to all to take good care of your TFs. :)
