    I just got a Galaxy Force Soundblaster, and I have the same problem with it as I do with Cybertron Soundwave and Universe Blaster:
    I just can't transform it into alt. mode.
    Sure, I get close. I know what I'm supposed to do. But the stupid legs and the cockpit piece just don't ever line up right or lock into place the way they should. I looked at my boxed Soundblaster, and even THAT isn't transformed right. Needless to say, these TFs generally stay in robot mode; trying to get the alt. mode just right is too frustrating.

    Anybody else have a Transformer that, no matter what, you just can't seem to transform right into one mode or the other?

    The rage I feel when attempting Human Alliance Sideswipe's transformation is indeed strong. The transformation itself isn't bad, but the sheer amount of parts that HAVE to be done before other parts annoys me. And the pegging in of the seats.

    Other than Universe Blaster? :p 

    Mixmaster took me three hours (spread out, not three straight hours) to get back into cement-truck mode. It was that damn cab.

    Jetfire never seems to line up right either. I just have him and Optimus in permanent lovey-dovey mode.

    I can't, for the life of me, get TFU Nemesis Prime back into mammoth mode but that's the only one I'm absolutely stuck on. I had Alt Skids in robot mode for about 2 years because I couldn't remember how to get him back into vehicle mode, but I figured it out again while randomly playing around with the figure last night.

    The Cybertron Soundwave mold, while it's a little annoying and I don't like transforming it, I've never had too much difficulty getting it back into vehicle mode.

    ROTF Mixmaster. He will always sit in robot mode until someone posts a video on his reverse transformation

    I have the same problem with Classics 2.0 Blaster. Those damned legs and that damned cockpit never want to go together.

    The only other one I really have a problem with is BT Convoy. I just cannot get the damned cab to go back together properly.

    Universe Blaster also gives me trouble when trying to transform him.

    Hell, the Legends version of the mold can sometimes be a pain (It always looks a little off) :lol

    RotF Bumblebee (preview wave). He was my girlfriend's and she handed it to me as the "expert" to figure out, and...it didn't go well. Her sister broke it in no time flat. That's a mold I'm never owning.

    I actually had a very a hard time transforming Long Haul as well. Yes, a harder time than Mixmaster. I know that makes no sense. My trouble turned out to be a rather naive unawareness of how carefully the legs have to fold up and lock together before you can do pretty much anything else as far as transforming the front of the truck. He's a snap to get out of truck mode, but it's a wonder I haven't broken him getting him back in.

    Also Universe Galvatron.

    LOL

    I've never had a problem transforming figures. Though for a long time I didn't have Classics Bumblebee's back folded down completely. Wasn't until I joined this board that I found out.

    Gravity Bots. Can't figure them out for the life of me.

    Other than that, no problems elsewhere.

    It took me a while to figure out how to Transform ROTF Prime but I eventually got it. The secret is persistence...

    ROTF Mixmaster. Tried to transform him into the mixer & got stuck, so he's back in bot mode.

    That's odd, for me the secret to transforming ROTF Prime was reading the instructions when first opened the sucker.

    I usually have problems aligning ROTF Jetfire's many panels, Universe Nemesis Prime's alt mode skin and Alt Skids' spine.

    G1 Soundwave. Never can get his legs right in alt mode.

    Universe Galvatron. I can get the dude into robot mode but getting it back into alt mode is impossible. His loose joints means shit falls off before its even moved back into place and makes the whole process frustating and time consuming.
