    I just got a TFA Dirge, and I'm happy with him. :p 

    But he has a problem: his torso dosen't lock into place over the hips like my Thundecraker does :( 

    There's a way to fix this?

    Push the nose cone of the jet form all the way back, and it should hide neatly behind his torso, that way he'll lock into place.

    Yeah, that is the way I did the transformation, but he dosen't lock compleatly.

    I took some pics of him and of Thundecracker to show Dirge problem.

    This is how far the torso can go, I tried to push it but it dosen't lock.

    Ummmmmmmmmmm, you could possibly return it? Force it in somehow? Mess around with the gears and pins that are holding it together?

    I tried with the well, but it appears the defect is

    A the nosecone can't bend well
    B) a piece under the tail wings that can't bend well :/


    I'm not sure if the store will acept a return for someting like this, but I think I'm goin to try, I don't have anything to lose (unless the other one would have another issue) O-o

    They didn't accepted him back, is 'cause is he comes in that type of package (carded) and they said me that the guaranty is on 24 hours!!

    I told them in the ticket says is 30 days for toys but they said me is only for big toys. sigh :banghead: 

    Well. he is still awesome :D

    What kind of crap store was that? They should have accepted it if you had the reciept and it was within 30 days.

    I wouldn't return it even with a minor defect like that. Dirge is freaking rare as hell.
