    Picked up Rampage the other night and think he is pretty cool, I would rather see a voyager or leader class version.

    Two things that bother me though. He petty much has no arm articulation. Wanted to see if you guys had any ideas. Right now I want to split his arm apart and put an extra pin in there.

    The other thing is when he back in his dozer mode, I cannont get the rear hatch part (that is connected to the cab) to go back down flush. I can't see any possible way for it to go all the way back down.

    Aside from that, I think he four leg set up and whips are cool.

    I can't get the rear hatch flush either. I don't think it was ever able to. I also can't get it to stay in place for bot mode, and his chest doesn't really peg together.
    I like the design, but with it's flaws, this figure is going to have to warm on me for a while.

    You have to pick is legs pretty far forward to get him to stand right, and I agree about the chest.

    I've been considering switching out his legs for ball joints, I think it would make them better.

    I think one of the main problems is that they wanted him to be a triple changer with that stupid mech-alive stuff. So there is the spring loaded legs and the pistons for a gimmick that does not work well on him, and the gimmick is that he turns into a jack hammer. What the hell fun is a jack hammer?

    I think there is potential for him.

    The legs stay in place well for me. I meant the hatch doesn´t stay in place in bot mode. it keeps popping out.

    Oh okay, I think that is a mistake on the transformation sheet, maybe it originally went down that far, but there is no way to get it fold in like it does on the instructions.

    There was a discussion about this before (don't have the link) where it was hypothesized that the screw in the bottom of his groin may not have been part of the original design (you can see that w/o the screw port, it would fit flush), which is why it doesn't fold down properly.
