    ..wow that was a mouthful.

    Was considering picking him up, but my only experience with him is a buddy of mine's figure, and the chest just does not stay pegged in well at all in bot mode. Is this a common issue with the figure or is it just his?

    Also, any way to keep his gun deployed like with the blade on voyager Megs?

    The chest on mine stays in good, not sure if it's a major issue with others though. And the only way I know to keep prime's gun flipped out is to take out the spring that makes the gimmick work. I'm pretty sure I saw something in the Radicons section about it too...

    Mine was loose in the beginning too, but as I was fiddling with it, something went "click" and it became solid.

    To keep the gun deployed, you can wrap one of those clear plastic rubber bands around it to keep it out. Not too crazy about the gun myself. I keep mine in the box.

    Your buddy prolly didn't have it fully locked in. I have zero issues with my Prime. (That said my first one did have intolerably floppy hips but I exchanged that one and no issues with the new one)

    As for teh weapon - take it apart and remove the spring and the battery pack. You now have a weapon that stays unfolded and looks decent IMHO.

    I thought I had the same issue with mine at first too, but it simply wasn't clicked into place properly. No problems now.

    if you look under the chest piece the folds over, there should be 2 pegs that can snap in to the body part rather well. Shouldn't be an issue.

    No issues with my Prime - I'm not at home now, but if I recall correctly, there's a small slot right under the head with a corresponding tab on the chest that should click together. That should solve any problems.

    Bot mode is sound. As far as the gun that comes with it, toss it into the nearest drawer and use the blaster that comes with RID Arcee
