    Opened up my DOTM voyager OP and when I transformerd him into a truck, I discovered this.
    Trying to decide if I should exchange him, or just trim the smokestacks shorter and fix it myself.

    Just my opinion, I wouldn't do anything. I think it's a unique, fun look that isn't too crippling on the toy, and isn't worth the hassle.

    I don't have the figure itself, so I'm unsure about how the smokestack is 'made'... Is there any way to turn it around & reglue it into place?

    Otherwise I'd consider trimming them if you weren't concerned about 'messing up' the figure, or just exchange it if you're concerned about how well you'd do with an exacto knife in your hands! :D

    I like them that way. He has his own unique Animated look to him anyways. All the movie toys coming out having aesthetic to them like Skyhammer, basics, Optimus, etc I've been digging.

    Edit: oh one is flipped? Just return it for another. Most stores are full of him.

    It's a minor detail that, frankly, I think isn't worth the trouble or trying to cut it with the potential to screw things up even more. If it bothers you THAT MUCH, then return it for another one with smokestacks that you like.

    Keep it as a curiosity, if it doesn't effect transformation. Up to you really.

    I never keep my TFs in alt mode, so I would have absolutely no problem with a backwards smokestack (which is actually the one on the far side, not the near side).

    It looks like they just grabbed two driver side smokestacks when they were putting him together. Not much different than a Transformer with two of the same fist.

    I can see how it could be a bit of an annoyance, one of those very minor details that is just a little wrong that it just stands out whenever you look at it.

    But at the same time it is such a minor issue...

    Couldn't you just rotate the smokestack?
