    Deluxe, Am I doin it right or something? He looks like a mess, he doesn't peg together or anything, there's huge gaping lines in his car mode. Help?

    Is there any one part you're having trouble with? The front end holds together better if you push the 'disc' sections of his feet together properly.

    His feet will not clip in. They just hang there.

    What I normally do is line up the legs first, clip the two heel discs together to make that section. Then I fold in the hood of the car, clipping it together on the windshield. Push the legs up, and the lights should slide into the two slots. Lastly, fold the arms into position as the car sides.

    I can only ever get one front light in nice and proper, though. The other tends to have a small gap in it, as do the side doors. But they're fine gaps, not huge ones, and they don't detract from the car much.

    It takes some doing but, once you've got everything in the right order he should stay together.

    At the first try fitting te legs inside the body of the car seems dificult but if you press a little bit harder the legs get in to place just fine; why don you put a video on youtube about your problem so everybody can help you

    He's one of those figures that you have to massage into alt mode.
