    Is this guy a piece of crap or is it just me? Truck mode won't stay together no matter what I try and Plane mode won't stay straight, the tail keeps popping up at a goofy angle! Am I missing something?!?!?

    Took some tries, but i managed to get him in his alt modes properly, and everything fits nicely. He still feels rather limp, and i ain't fond of the hands but he's alright.

    It's you. My Octane is solid as a rock in all three modes and probably the most fun toy to come out of the new Universe line.

    I don't like him but mine has none of the QC issues you're talking about.

    Mine is acting like yours Deadsled - the front halves of the truck love to pop apart and just generally refuse to stay together. And the little butt flap won't sit flat in plane mode. Blah.

    exactly what mine is doing, I've noticed on other Universe figures (i.e. Sunstreaker) there are a lot of "off center" drilling going on in these toys. Streak's engine scoops have very different positions of the "peg holes" they hinge on. I wonder if there is something internal with a similar problem?

    I'll take some pics this evening.

    It looks to me like the base of each of his wings are pushing against each other when they are goiing together in truck mode. I'm considering a little exacto-knife shave there to see if it helps, but I'm also considering that it could be that his wings are attached on pegs that aren't quite even or flush.

    My Octane has the same problem with the Truck mode, but it stays together after a couple of tries so it's not a big deal. Overall he's a great figure in my opinion.
