    Just picked up a City Commander recently. I was wondering, how well should the leg armor snap on to the legs/knee cap of Ultra Magnus? Should there be a distinct click to signify the connection and it's super tight? Mine doesn't do that, so I'm wondering if I put on the armor wrong or if that's how it is. It stays on, there's just a small gap on the leg portion between armor and Magnus leg in certain poses. Thanks

    It doesn't like to close up. You can angle the kneecap out a little bit to make it look engaged, but it won't be flush.

    Mine doesn't connect to the kneepads super tight. It can kinda click but it disconnects really easily. I just leave it since I don't really care.

    One kneecap on mine closes up perfectly flush. The other doesn't quite like to sit properly.

    Just minor tolerance issues. Regardless, they don't click into place. They just kinda tab over them, and generally stay put due to the friction in the hinge.

    Best advice I can offer is watch a few u-tube toy review videos. this always helps me out when I have a hard time Transforming a TF toy.
