    Anybody knows the purpose of Blitzwings's joints in his wings?, they are not used during transformation and I've tried to fold the wings but it feels like they'll break (so i stopped); so if anyone could shed some light into this it'd be appreciated.
    Also, does anyone has any problems with the "quick" face changes gimmick?, it takes me forever to get the faces to rotate and usually end up using my finger on the face itself to rotate them (i don't want to do that, since i don't want all my finger oil to get on the paint, so if anyone has another technique I'm all ears).
    Thanks guys.

    They're part of his TFmation into tank mode, they should be folded down flush with the rest of him.

    They can also be folded when he's in robot mode, don't think that's for any particular reason, just to look a bit cooler.

    Mine usually requires me to turn the face itself, rather than with the dial above it. Just clean/dry your hands first, although he doesn't seem to be affected by dirty hands (I'm lazy with mine as he's still on the shelves everywhere here).

    This is my 3rd edit of this post :D , I just looked for some pics online and it looks like you just bend them rather than actually folding them completely in two when in tank mode, that kind of explains it.
    Thanks for the reply, aslo i found that if i use my index finger while putting pressure on the dial the faces turn "most" of the time.

    In myself before someone points out the crappy wallpaper! I know, but the computer room is far down the list for an overhaul.

    Hey, I never noticed before he had a little red window on the front of his tank mode. Or maybe it's an eye strip like KITT from Knight Rider. :D 

    How did I miss seeing that on mine?

    You've also mistransformed the turret. The guns are in the wrong position.
