    I don't think it's that fragile, you just need to handle it properly like any other high-end transforming piece. Working in the direction the joint allows really helps. :)

    You're now in the Toyark, I think you might get more help on this here.

    As a word of advice, I'd recommend being gentle with this one. A lot of the parts are a little tight at first. Also make sure you remember to open the various covers, especially the ones near the knees.

    Lastly, when you pop the shoulders out, be careful with the arms, the screws aren't perfect on his right arm and if you're not careful you can actually pull the arm off or leave it loose. I did this by accident and I've since had to replace the screw.

    Why would the screws be any different between the left and right arms?

    Maybe they're not, but I haven't had any problem with his left arm. It was his right that gave me trouble and ultimately needed replacing.

    I have problems to get the gun-handle to stay together correctly on the back. I always seem to have a gap there. And yes, I'm flipping the pegs out.

    i have the same issue with the back of the gun handle. I think it's a common problem.
