    This is one of two ROTF figures they had left at the Target I went to & well...he's probably the most baffling figure I've transformed yet. I still can't get him to stand up right. The back shovel piece falls off his back and the front chest plate under his head baffles me. Its obvious the rear peice is required to stand him up in robot mode since his legs are so thin & have no feet, but I can't figure out how to set up the rear back shovel piece properly :( . Any tips?

    Anyone notice that the front yellow chest piece has a painted Decepticon logo, but when you open him...there is no painted logo. I haven't seen it painted on any of the photos people have posted either.

    The shovel should click into his back in robot mode.

    the back tabs seem pretty good on mine, the chest piece did confuse me the first time but other than its lack of a emblem its solid.

    Now if the elbows could frickin move lol....but I love him...damned good figure

    Yeh. The whole shovel assembly collapses on itself and you fold the whole piece over his body and clips into two small pegs on his back. The chest piece (I assume you are talking about the two piston things) is really annoying. I find it easiest to push the pistons all the way up and just tuck that little dangly piece between his waist and head.

    The real trick is getting him back into vehicle mode. That's when that piston thing gets in the way.

    The pistons do get a little fumbly, but I have no problem with the shovel. It collapses down to about half it's size and then opens a little to have an angle. The "crabby" legs move out then. The front of the shovel has two holes, right? Well, there are tabs that fit into the holes and hold the shovel securley! The tabs are on the piece right behind the cab of the 'dozer. Now it should work fine! :thumb s
