    I just want to put out the FYI. For FoC Swindle's arms you have to rotate a piece on a metal pin. On mine, that pin is starting to work its way out. Last time I did it, the pin came out far enough that I was concerned that the other end of it was no longer in the hole for it.

    (To see what I'm referring to check out Optibotimus's review for the shoulder/arm transformation. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...5-optibotimus-reviews-2012-sdcc-bruticus.html )

    Thanks, Ryoku. I'll be keeping an eye out for that when mine arrives.

    I wasn't really trying to plug him. He happens to talk about how scary that joint is. He also shows said joint. So rather than repeat him and take a pic I just posted his review. It's a good review though.

    Avoid? No. Fix? I used a pair of pliers and pushed the pin back into place.

    Just slides back in? Oh, well then that's not a major problem. Still sucks that it could happen at all. Thanks for the warning, I'm sure I would have not noticed, the pin would have fallen out and I would have lost it. :lol
