    There's one Misfire left at Nashville West Target. It's on the endcap facing electronics. I already got them to pull what they had in back, too.

    If its too stiff when i open I figured id shave the cross piece in the middle of the joint down a little to allow better travel of the ratchet piece up and down and start with removing something like a quarter of the spring...most tutorials said half, but I don't want to start there, in case it's too much

    Or maybe see if I can locate a weaker spring

    I recommend doing something with it before moving it around too much. I attached the hips and moved them once to get on Dino mode and his left hip shattered on me so now I gotta figure out how to replace it

    Yep, tried to rotate it before assembly and couldn't budge it with comfortable force, gonna see if I can find a weaker spring somewhere before I cut the factory one

    This is what happened to my left hip piece of trypticon. Hasbro is getting a very long complaint today. Be wary when moving his legs.

    Yep, looks like the others pics I saw, I sent customer service a polite (probably too polite) asking for a solution other than returning to the store. Mine is not broke yet as I haven't even used enough extreme force to rotate it and I really don't want to take it back as I probably won't find another....just like metroplex and fort max, I saw one in the store, waited and missed metro, and didn't make the mistake of waiting on Maximus.

    One other thing I read in several places, and I might try before cutting the spring, is that it seems the tightness of the plus shaped post may be a majority of the issue for some units. And, that widening the tolerances on the grey, spring side, ratchet piece by filing the plus shaped hole wider, so that it frees up the in and out motion of the ratchet has made the hip system work better.

    Man. Feels good having all this new stuff show up everywhere at once after the last few months have been pretty garbage for distribution.

    West town TRU has wave 3 TR deluxes, 2 TLK Megatron deluxes (don't think I saw any Skullitron), and that's pretty much it. Was hoping to maybe find RID Menasor but nope.
