    Need help with a G1 Magnus - Sorted!

    So, I just got a G1 Magnus from a friend, plastic wheels, no painted face, but that's not really a problem.

    What is a problem is that his lower arms won't extend to properly make the car carrier!

    Is this another difference from the first run of Magnus toys or is it just stuck?

    Probably just stuck, just take them apart and check for gunk/busted bits.

    As far as I'm aware all versions of this mold have extending arms. Sometimes they can be a bit stiff so you have to give them a good tug to get them moving. However, if you're worried something might break while doing this you could probably unscrew a forearm and open it up just to be sure nothing has jammed inside. But since you mention it's both arms it's more likely just general sticky stiffness. If it was me I'd open up the forearms and give them the once over.

    Gah - beaten! This is what happens when I take too long making a bigger post than I needed to. :p

    Sorted! Brute force prevails.

    Mostly, I was just worried about breaking something.

    Thanks guys!
