    I wanted to know if anyone has problems with Dinobot's sword/missile because mine doesn't lock into the launcher of the Velcio-Rotor blade very well. Now if I put this in the wrong place, please move it to the right section. Thanks.

    I had the same problem. I opened the tail up and carefully bent the little plastic clip that holds the missile so it had more purchase on the missile nub. Just gotta be really careful not to snap the plastic right off instead of just bending it. Doesn't really need much bending anyway. I also weakened the spring a little by compressing it. Now it holds fine.

    I don't think anyone's missile stays in very well. I had the same exact problem, so I put it into the missile bin for safe keeping.

    I suppose if you didn't want to use it as a standalone sword for Dinobot you could always glue the sword into the tail launcher.

    Try this....

    I dont know if this works on every figure but on mine after I put the sword in the hole,(insert your own joke here),I give it a little twist to the left or right,(ditto on the joke here),and it stays in place.

    That would make some sense as it's a cross-ended missile in a crosscut hole. I'd still be wary of nudging it and the missile pinging off into Mystery Missing Missile Land though.

    Thats the reason I posted this thread is because I don't want to be only one who has this problem so thanks for opinions and if anyone once to post about it. Go right ahead.

    Yeah, I thought I had broken it because for the first few weeks I didn't have a problem, but after that point it stopped working properly.
