    just bought my 2nd superion. my 1st one was cracked on one of airrazors joints and my silverbolt has misassembled legs (which we are all well aware of) and this one has a few flaws aswell

    silberbolt backwards legs (again, yeyeye wotever), one of the plugs that the rotating panels in silverbolts chest area is faulty so the little flap just falls of, and the cockpit on my new airraid rattles while airrazors is suck in as it should be

    anyone else having problems?

    I'm having problems with the leg fix. I can't seem to pull the 2 halves of each leg apart. It almost seems like they were glued together. How did you pry them apart? Did you have to apply a lot of pressure?

    more than i thought i would have but it wasnt that hard. pull the back piece and just hold the front in place. just twiddle it about as you pull.

    I did the fix just a few minutes ago, the hip springs were no trouble at all.

    okay as thats the only part that worries me i thought i might hold them in place with a bit of tape for some extra insurance, asumming that in its self would cause a problem of course, i have to get a Superion before i can do this

    Except write the thing up...

    (I know it's not a hard fix, or even news for those of us that dealt with this during Energon, but I figured with all the new blood from the new movie and the number of new collectors that would be getting Superion, that this would be a helpful refresher.)

    As someone who missed out on the toy and fix first time around, I am very grateful for it. :D  A major thank you, his alt mode finally fits together properly.
