    So transforming my newly obtained MP-01b to truck mode for the second time and I'm having a bit of a problem (had this the first time as well, but not near as bad as this). One of his legs (his left) just does not want to collapse, and it's driving me crazy. I thought maybe it was the right leg having an issue before that it didn't extend and lock as much as the other...but it seems that maybe that leg is fine and it's this one locking too much or something.

    Any help or advice or tips?

    I have an MP-04 that had the same problem... if it's the same cause, there's a slight intolerance in the area where the gas tank "button" releases the leg... All I did was loosen the screws in his lower leg by about 1/4 of a turn each, and it fixed it...

    Seems like that worked, gonna keep the screwdriver on hand, always felt uncomfortable messing with screws in a figure, makes me paranoid, like I keep thinking I see a little too big of a gap starting to form in the halves of his lower leg >_<
