    Since he's a pretty popular fig used for kitbashes (or parts, rather) I'd figured it be relevant to seek help over here.

    I was fiddling with my cron's chest, opened it to fix the chest cannon which refused to stay locked in place. Got that fixed but another question popped up: where does this greasy spring belong?

    Here're all my upper body pieces:

    And how his chest looks like right now:

    Another thing that bugs me a lil' is that his chest missile no longer fires upon activating the back minicon port. The chest opens, cannon protrudes but not far enough to release the missile. Prime suspect is the white gearbox towards the top right of above pic.

    Any advice/assistance would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance! :bowdown:

    You're best bet is asking Hook. He disassembled his Unicron a few days earlier.

    That spring actually goes in between his legs, inside the lower torso, between two brackets that give it the thighs the ability to click when moved.

    I think he's trying to repaint it like in the movie (animated) or something completely different.

    did you take apart Unicron's waist? cause I have a feeling it's from there.

    The White gear box is only there to make the crank sound. and slow the speed of the cannon.

    Oh yes, how could I've forgotten... thanks for poiting that out *slaps forehead*

    Yes I did! *going back at cron's pelvis of glory furiously*

    Eh... I'm just tryin to make his chest cannon work, and I suspect the white gearbox is working to hard, or the springs aren't pulling on the cannon enough to set off the launch. Will settle for 2 stage manual launch for now :tumbleweed: 

    Thanks for shedding the light in my darkest hours! :thumb
