    Same thing happened to me with Onslaught. I returned him, and got him later when I found him again.

    This happened to me on Friday. Don't panic, just unscrew it and reassemble correctly. It's just a simple error, especially considering the piece looks almost the same from both sides.

    uhhh looks like he's having trouble since he stated his screw in question is stripped. I'm sure there's a way, but nonetheless, is a freaking hassle.

    How badly stripped is the screw? I've come across some stripped screws in my TF's, but my set of phillips and flat head screwdrivers of varying sizes have never failed me thus far in getting them out.

    Chill dude, it's a toy. Return it and pick up a fresh one when you see one.

    Hey, don't snap at me for trying to help. Try to pry the screw out, just because it's stripped doesn't mean you're screwed over. It's just a toy and you can always get your money back and wait for another one. Just don't try Hasbro's customer service.

    1st- Try a bigger screwdriver than what you would actually (normally) need for that screw.

    2nd- If that doesn't work, buy an "easy out" bit. It's designed to remove stripped screws and rarely fails... they come in different sizes, so buy accordingly.

    Hope this helps!

    i meant there arent many Infernos with the issue.

    but there IS a way to take out a stripped screw, but its a special tool ive only seen on tv. get one of those, and you're set

    EDIT:: darn, got beat to it

    if the screw its very accesible, you can always try to heat it up with an soldering iron and simply remove the top part of the piece. Ask in the radicons (or check for the tutorials) for the pin removal guidelines. Basically its the same method to remove wheels :)
