So I tried to transform my MP Thundercracker today to the Plane for the first time, and had some issues. Step 1: It says to remove the main blasters. When you remove them from the unit, what are you supposed to do with them? They say to reattach them to the plane in step 27, but then what are you supposed to do with the missiles? Put them on the base? What if you want to have the missiles on the plane in display mode, then you just lay the blasters somewhere? Is it possible have both the blasters and the missiles on the TC in plane mode? Step 5: Shows a crotch piece snapping inwards towards the unit. I pressed this and tried to move it, and it would not move in either direction. I could see the hinge, but in the default position out of the box I could not move it at all. The step 5 instruction shows it going in towards the figure, so I pressed and pressed... until it snapped off and broke. Ugh. Step 7: It shows the rear tail fins folded back on a hinge. My TC already had the fins attached to the legs as it shows in step 8, and I could not seem to "unhinge it" at all, and at this point I was fearful of breaking it again. In the end, I was able to get it all transformed... with some finagling and back track steps. I had the backside of the feet on top of the rear thrusters when I was done, and I realized that in no step does it show to fold those inwards, but I figured that out. Didnt see it in the instructions at all... The plane looks amazing on the stand, and I had no idea how large it would be. When you guys take pictures, no-one ever seems to put a Dr Pepper can or something next to them to show them to scale. I had no idea, even after having looked at him in robot mode, that the plane would be so large, detailed and realistic proportions. I have a very nice dragonwings F-15 diecast model, and the MP TC looks nearly identical. I am impressed.
