    Um, I got my Ultimate Optimus Prime last night and I just wanted to know if any of you went through heack just to transform the mech.



    Here is my little story of lastnight:
    I bought the first one and I took him home. My brother-in-law was helping me transform him. He was transforming the trailer til it broke. So, I whent back to wal mart for a new one. I transformed him gently. Once he was all transformed and such, I practically whent crazy.


    Basically, I whent through hell just to get him to his vehicle mode.

    How can we help without pictures? For all we know there's just a tiny hole on the front of the trailer.

    Was it the part where the giant gun clips on for robot mode? I had a bastard of a time unclipping without breaking that when I wanted to transform to trailer. I also remember the hinges for folding away the front of the trailer were a bit troublesome and had to be done in a certain way.
    But yeah, I agree with the others on perhaps needing photos of what went wrong where for you.

    I got a used one and the trailer piece that attached to the hip has stress marks and the other side is about to break off. Does any one else having problems with theirs breaking? Poor QC?

    Not sure how to help, I didn't have any issue with the toy - I think lining up that panels was a touch fiddly at first but nothing major.

    Must be nice to break a toy you bought, then return to the store because your bro-in-law's gorilla hands smashed it to pieces.

    You broke it, deal with it.
