    When I have trouble with a toy, I go to the Transformers Feedback section and find the thread for feedback on that toy. You'll find other people with the same problem and what they did to fix it.

    It sucks that his back won't line up, but since his head is on a ball joint it shouldn't really be an issue there, should it?

    Oops, sorry about that. Actually, on topic, I seem to recall something about holding the head in place whilst you rotate the chest/back piece until it's properly aligned. Can't vouch for that as I haven't had that problem.

    Yeah, it's just the same problem Universe Sunstreaker had but on his back because of the chest being the other side with Sideswipe. I tried the 'holding head and twisting chest' thing but it really felt like I was going to break something so I stopped. Mine was only off by a tiny amount though so I can live with it.

    As Moonscream said, check out the Feedback threads and a solution of some kind will be there. :)
