    Hello there,

    I got my BB Prime 2 days ago, and the first thing i saw, was that a stupid guy i the factory put the wrong shoulderpanels to my prime!

    the left part is n the right, and the right part is on the left.

    i hoped that i only must unscrew it, but damn NO! there are 3 heavy mountet pegs for each shoulder which i cnanot remove without destroying the whole panel!

    any ideas which could helb me?

    best regards from germany

    chris

    I think this should be in the Radi. Gen. discussion, but to go into your question, is it not possible to just swing the arm up, then rotate it down so that it's in the proper direction, though if you do that maybe the red area's on the shoulders will be backwards then.... I don't have the figure, so I can't help to much..

    When you want to twist them backwards you can't articulate the arms straight to the ground, them they are in the new "T"-Mode -_-

    Honestly, does it effect the transformation? If not I'd just grab some red paint and paint the circle red and be done with it

    I think the only way to fix this is to use a soldering iron (small tip) and try to remove the pins. If they're as small as they look, it may not be worth the effort. You could do more damage than good. I really hate when they screw up something simple like that though. Love the job their doing by releasing some cool stuff, but at least screw a shoulder on correctly.

    Good luck with this, bro! Hope you can return it or fix it.

    every figure of this tpe has this mistake! that really sucks imho!

    and yes it affects the transformation, not much, but it makes the transformation a lot more complicated than it must be.
