    Is it just mine or is the cockpit area really hard to line up? I try to get one part pegged on but then another comes off. Is it a flaw in the mold or can someone post a picture on how to do it?

    I believe Cybertron Soundwave has the same issue, if the legs aren't perfectly aligned, the cockpit/arm shield won't snap on properly. Though I havent' tried to transform my soundwave in a while.

    Yeah. Most definitely a flaw in the mold. Both Galaxy Force Soundwave and Soundblaster, as well as Cybertron Soundwave had the problem. I just ended up clipping the pegs off my Soundwave because I got fed up with it. I'm contemplating doing the same with Blaster.

    He's an utter pain. I sometimes wonder why I got Soundblaster.

    The best you can do is try to get it more or less right, and hope that nobody notices. Ambitious design, but poor execution.

    You have to get it to within a fraction of a cybertron mini-inch. But It works I just think there are a lot of tracks that keep slideing around and you need to coordinate that if you want to do it the "right" way.

    I had the same problem, it was a miscalculation in the mold. Universe Blaster was ok but I'd rather use the Soundwave version of that mold for my Classics so I took him back and got a refund, got to keep his cyber key and his weapons too :D . Got Dropshot and he's awesome.
