    Anyone else having trouble transforming this into car mode? I had the toughest time getting the arm panels/doors to lock in (they kept popping out). I had the original Classics Bumblebee and don't remember it being this difficult. Thanks!

    Just got mine today and yeah, just transformed and noticed that the doors don't really stay flush unless you kinda finnagle them in the right way. Still, the end result is good. Now back to his plastic coffin till I get my Goldbug head. XD

    My doors pop out too. I chalked it up to a brain fart, since I couldn't recall having the same trouble with my Cliffjumper.

    Is this the same problem as on RTS BB?

    I have the same problem with my RTS Bumblebee, but the original Classics Bumblebee I had the chance to play with at a friend's place was fine.

    I'm afraid it's a result of mold degradation.

    Thanks, everyone. Yeah, there's something wonky about the molds on these re-releases. The doors are just angled too far out to stay securely pegged in car mode. Still, given that everyone probably bought this for the Goldbug head, I'm guessing it's not going to spend much time in car mode anyway.
