    The CBB Blades from the Protectobots 5-pack actually has an even weirder head... it's a balljoint with a pin through it. So the head can't even turn side-to-side. Kind of annoying.

    Whoever gets these please take a comparison pic with the green and red fembots to see if these would make good sidekicks for them.

    Can someone help me fix Sideswipe's crotch piece? It limits his articulation and gets in the way of the transformation. 15415657948038258499138998861345.jpg

    Maybe you could like, unscrew it and turn it around? Because I don't think Sideswipe should have a big ol' crotchhole...

    I'll try. Thanks!
    But what about the legs? Are they attached to the crotch?

    They might be resting in-between the crotch but you can most likely take them out if need be.

    I've never disassembled this mold before, but I don't see any pesky pins that would anchor the crotch section, and Takara stopped using complex spring-loaded ratchets in the legs of most TFs long ago.

    It looks like a really simple fix - probably less than a minute to quickly unscrew the two screws, swap the legs, and close it all back up again. The 2 hip connectors and the waist joint are probably just held in place by the tension of the two halves of the crotch. Good luck!

    You shouldn't have to take apart the legs, just the crotch.

    So after seeing your post I ordered a set of 3. How is the quality? Hope I get some variations instead of all the same. That was pretty crappy of the seller to send 4 of the same even if it was random
