    i couldnt help but notice that alot of people have issues with Sideswipe's chest, and getting it to lock in place, including my own. well, i was fiddling with him and found that his chest was suddenly locked in place fairly tightly-so i fiddled some more and found the solution! if you're Sideswipe's lower half doesnt lock in, just put it in again, but this time put your fingers on the top of his chest and push the entire torso assembly back with your other hand-you'll feel it slide back a little and lock in place nicely


    Sorry if this has been discovered before, just something i figured id mention since people seem to have had this kind of issue alot

    nuts, got my hopes up, didn't change anything for me though. I'm hoping some clear nail polish will fix it, but honestly it's just gonna stand (<---ha ha, stand) on my shelf anyway, so.....

    thanks though

    Awesome, seems to work! I had put some nail polish on the little tab earlier, but it wore down fairly quickly and I was back to square one.

    I see the issue but just got it together and the waist holds really well. Even has a swivel which is amazing.

    Great figure...for those who have a figure that doesn't click in nicely, why won't you return it and get a different figure, it's not a universal defect.

    Already did and got one with a nicer paint job but turned out the chest was still bad. However, I made srue to package the one i returned so you could never tell it was opened because I felt really bad I would rip my Target off by returning the opened Swipe. Some kid would still love it and its impossible to tell its been open.

    I have to return mine too, but it's because I broke the foot on it. The feet supposedly have joints that swivel, I tried to turn them and it snapped :( 

    Good thing is, Mom's going to get me a new one :) 

    He's a great toy, just don't fiddle with the feet! :wink:
