    I have to admit there are some stages of transformation that makes you feel uncomfortable, those tabs included and did I mention frustrating, man oh man the first time was hell. No other transformer gave me more grief than him I was having breathing problems, seriously.

    For the tabs, what I do is:
    • Slide them up a bit, the groove they go along goes inwards a bit towards the middle
    • Push inwards
    • Pull out while pushing the tabs inwards in the small gaps
    I don't think this is mentioned in the manual, I think the manual just shows the tabs being pulled out, but doing just that can break them over time.
