    Okay, I've seen lots of mistransformed pictures of Grimlock's arms, so to put people's fears to rest, I present a tutorial:

    NO! :dunce

    Yes! :thumb

    Also, for those who didn't catch the pics in the feedback thread, it's quite simple to remove the trapjaw and do some simple modding to have a very G1-esque head if that's your thing.

    :lol 

    Like I said, you'd have to do some very minor modding to fill in that hole, but a lot of people are complaining about the giant jaw, I wanted to show them just how G1 he really looks under there.

    I'll be checking into that whenever I get a Grimlock, though I suspect I'll leave the jaw on in the end.

    I'm surprised people couldn't figure THAT out.

    He even did that in his cartoon transformation didn't he?

    It definitely happens in the cartoon, but I'm not sure if they ever actually explicitly show it.

    I dont know how you can transform his arm wrong, Its simple, push it in until it doesnt go in anymore. thanks for pointing that out, because its painful to see his arm transformed wrong, and also do you just pull his trap jaw out? or does it have some sort of hinge. also, how is the head attached to the body, I dont see a ball joint.

    I also fear breaking the jaw, or breaking his head off with out major scratching, can you clear that out? Even though I dont plan on keepin the jaw off permeantly but I just want to see it.

    Yeah, I know, it's pretty simple, but a lot of foreign sellers/photographers keep leaving them extended, and then people start thinking he looks bad because of it, and I just wanted to set the record straight :) 

    As for the jaw, unscrew the screw in the back of the head and the jaw should simply slide forward and off. It's got a post that fits in that little hole in his mouth. Once the screw is out, just pull the jaw forward and it should pull right out.
