    Hi guys, I just purchased Powerglide (Classics 2.0 Ultra Powerglide), and i'm having a little bit of a problem. The grey piece that folds back (the one in his waist that'll become his stomach) to hold his chest; is it supposed to click or hold the upper chest in place or what?, mine doesn't really do anything, thus Powerglide chest flops out of place very easily and makes the figure feel unstable (also the wings do a little bit of work in holding the upper chest in place, but the whole piece moves back and forth and sometimes it disloges the upper torso triggering the transformation sounds). So I was wondering, am I doing something wrong? (i've seen pics of the bot and it looks alright compared to mine, except that the grey part seems to be inside his upper chest a lot deeper than in mine); am I mistransforming him?
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Thanks guys.

    on mine, the tab in the foldy part fits snug into the hole, its not a extremely tight but ive not had any problems with it flopping around... im sorry, maybe put some nail polish on the tabby part so it kinda makes the tab thicker before putting it into the hole (quit thinking dirty.....lol......maybe it was just me)
    hope this helps

    What?... I don't get it, yeah that's the way it looks, but did you do something to the peg on the first picture?, maybe put some nail polish or something?

    The peg on mine is not tight at all it barely clicks in, so the upper chest does not come down enough for the stomach to click in place.
