    Nah, mine does the same thing. Recoil too. The leg pegs just don't want to peg securely into the body... I thought about using future, but we'll see..

    Oh, no, I meant that the parts that make up the Targetmaster's torso are prying themselves apart as if something was molded incorrectly.

    Mine had to have his chest forced into his back in order to tranform right. After that he was perfect.

    I don't appear to be able to do that myself. It's less noticeable in robot mode, but even just rotating the hips a bit will cause his back to lift up, but less so than attempting a full transformation.

    First picture is robot mode. The green line aligns with Firebolt's hips(Or where they would be. Haven't fully put him back together yet.)
    Second picture shows his back lifting up and out by clicking the gun barrels in for Targetmaster mode. Trying to press on the chest, unfortunately does nothing for me - it just pops out of place again once I let go.

    Opened my order from BBTS. Sharkticon and Sweep 7 are great, I had high expectations for Hot Rod and it blew me away.

    Yes, mine had loosey goosey legs (not as bad as TR Kup), but some clear nail polish fixed that; I also tightened up the arms as I had it out anyway. Also, that chest is a scary tight lock in, I can understand concerns about it. But all that said, I absolutely love the figure. This would've been a post TF:TM child me's favorite figure ever, it ticks all the boxes for me. None of the pictures I had seen had prepared me for the in hand color, it's this really red-purple that I like.

    I also have zero issues with the Targetmaster, everything works great and it's super tight. I wasn't expecting the detail to be as good as it was, or that there was so much of it, it's a really well sculpted fun little guy.

    Can the Targetmasters for Kup/Hot Rod mount on Blurr's shield?

    ^ Which sets me thinking if the upcoming LG Blurr reissue would have some mods on him. I mean TakaTom could simply add on a 5mm port onto his shield so that we may mount his Targetmaster. :)

    Dropped on my home 2 days ago. Deformed lips and loose hips. I like it the same.

    The lips are a widespread problem. Mine has it too. Just going to have to live with it. It's not all that noticeable anyway.
