    :mad MY LEADER CLASS SENTINEL PIME IS A PIECE OF JUNK!!! EVERYTIME I TRANSFORM IT TO VEHICULE MODE, THE SIDES AND THE TOP WON'T SNAP IN OR STAY OR KEEPS POP OUT. I SMASHED IT, SQUEEZED IT, SAT ON IT, DROPPED HEAVY OBJECTS ON IT, EVEN HIT IT WITH A HAMMER, NO DAMAGES BUT IT WILL STILL NOT LOCK IN!!!:mad

    It's very possible that you're just aligning something wrong in there. Calm the hell down first, return to robot mode and try again carefully. It seems this toy requires almost perfect parts positioning or else it just won't click. Watch some videos and pictorial reviews, if some QC issue is the cause you might be able to spot it there too.

    Obviously mistransformed. Mine did that for a few seconds the first time I transformed him until I realized parts were not properly aligned/rotated (namely, the arms).

    Chill man...have you try looking at any of those youtube reviews of it yet?

    Most likely this is just a simple case of misalignment, like some of the others here have pointed out. there are alot of peggings from peg "A" to peg "B" on this toy.

    YouTube - DOTM Sentinel Prime(Leader Class) Review 2

    here's the transformation. i hope it helps. check out the hands going inside the knee area.

    the guy in the vid took 13 minutes to transform it properly.

    first thing i do if i can't transform properly is to look it up on youtube. did that for alternity BB and CJ. such a pain to transform.

    First of all, calm down. It's just a toy.

    When I first transformed him I had the same problem. I had no idea how to get anything to line up correctly, I tried to force it for nearly an hour before I figured it out. I had to look at the instructions to finally see.

    The problem I had was getting the arms inside the legs, which is the trickiest thing to do. The palms/fingers need to be facing inward, with the flat surface of the hand on the outside. The little black clip needs to clip into the matching slot in the leg panel. It won't close all the way, but it will close enough to get him properly transformed.

    If that's not your problem, I would suggest watching Optibotimus's Review of Sentinel Prime. Should help you out loads.

    Does Leader Sentinel Prime have multiple phrases or just one?

    Multiple, but the international release seems to be a Pokemon and only says his name.

    If you saw his Wheeljack thread, you'll know he's not the most patient person around.

    You'll be needing to buy another Sentinel Prime at the rate you're going...

    Kidding aside it ain't so bad. You have to make sure things are positioned right and locked into place. I find that making sure the rear of the firetruck tabs into the roof first before tackling the ones on the side. It's good stuff.

    Just one phrase "I am Sentinel Prime!", while the others are just sound effects/transforming sound.

    I saw one of the video reviewers unlocking extra phrases, but I can't remember how right now. Maybe something to do with his mechtech ports, but he had a phrase greeting Optimus.

    2 more phrases are unlocked when something is plugged in the right shoulder MechTech port. Plus a firing sound if you push the siren button. One sound when the weapon is inserted and transformation sound when its removed.

    This is why I have a violent dislike for Lazerwave. He's impatient, and apparently, blames his own faults on the toy.
    It takes a lot of precise alignment to get him to transform properly. So first, calm the fuck down, and second, watch a youtube review once or twice. And follow along.

    First of All, Don't talk to me like that and second, I transform him will watching a video but it still the same, " flat panels pop out like a jack in the box."

    I'll talk however I damn well please.
    Trust me. I've had problems in Transforming figures before. And whenever I did something wrong, I experienced the effects of what you've described.
    Not everything is going to fit the way you want it to. Some Transformers, you have to follow a pretty strict pattern. One piece can't go somewhere until another piece is out of it's way. Take some time with it to analyze the toy, and I'm almost certain, you'll find a fault in your pattern.
