    I recently aquired a ROTF Sideways figure but I have a problem with the wheels on the arms,they drag on the ground under the figure in car mode and keep it from rolling.I've tried to push them up further but it only makes the outer shell pieces pop out of place and when I snap them back in,the wheels get pushed down again and the car wont roll.Has anyone else had this problem and if so,do you know how to fix this? Thanx for any help on this.

    They're tricky to get in there. Pushing won't help, you have to sort of slide them in at an angle, you'll know when because there'll be clearence from the ground. Pictures won't help much, since it's really only something you can understand with the figure in your hands.

    These days massaging pieces just right has become part of the process of transforming a figure.

    There are tabs on the arms that peg into the spine. Close the arms togeter then push them into the car at an angle and get the pegs into the spine.

    You're not alone Swampfight, I've had the same problem. No matter how much I try to fit the arms in there right it won't work. That wheel just drags for me. On the other hand, I have no problems with Dead End. So I am thinking I just might have some mold flash or something I need to trim.
