    well, we're all pretty aware of his faults in vehicle mode, so I was wondering, is there a way to disable the automorph or what ever it is that's screwing up the mode without messing up the whole toy?

    If you transform him exactly like the instructions say, you shouldn't have this problem.

    Just use the magic button, and you'll never have to worry about his "defectiveness".

    well that's the thing. I DO transform him correctly and I do use the button, but still, the front doesn't lock into place in car mode.

    It takes some finagling. I still haven't discovered a sure-fire method for making it *click*. I just keep trying over and over until it does.

    Someone in the Toyark thought he came up with a solution, but my internet wasn't working the last time I TF'ed him into car mode, and now he's back in 'Bot mode for awhile.

    You push the chest up, then push the two lights in.

    You'll hear a click, and it'll be fine.

    well, you're a scrappy one...

    actually I just managed to get it to lock in fine. I think the main problem is that the launchers are a bit too bulky to fit the way they say they should... also, the latch system isn't really designed all that well. it's like there's JUST enough to get a bite, but you have to do it perfectly.

    The launchers are your problem. I keep them separate.

    i managed to TF mine back and forth a couple times no problem, launchers included.
    mine is the japanese mold, if there is any difference other than clear windows.
    maybe i just got lucky?

    I broke the shit out of the first BB I bought. And yes, it was the same front-light portion you're all bitchin about. Unfortunately, I didn't notice the button (I actually try to transform them w/o instructions the 1st time). When I went to revert him back to car mode, the front kept flipping downwards. I haven't done anything with it yet, like remove the spring, but maybe I should. Then again, I still have the receipt, so if I wanted to take it back and exchange him, I could.

    Anyone know when Wave 2 is coming out? Im starting to get bored with wave 1.

    I'm guilty of the same thing. I may try to disassemble it and figure it out. If nothing else It would be a nice parts car or a chance to repaint as cliff jumper. :drunk

    why are you all taking them back for some poor kid to get a broken bb since that is who these broken figures are going to end up with. you are all moderately rich reople, just buy another for car mode and use the broken one for bot and tf'ing
