I find it hard to believe that the kneepads fit fine like they were supposed to. I had to widen the slots far too much for it to be a mere tolerance +/-.

They peg on, but they're supposed to slot in much farther than they do.

The face problem is normal, and the finger fix is to take a soldering iron, or a hot flat head screwdriver, and melt the ends of the pegs in the knuckle joints.

I have the clear version, and everything fit fine on it, it just took a lot of time to get parts in just right. I use a plastic tool meant for opening ipods to press some parts in to prevent breaking. The mirrors and chest windows especially. I think those took an hour or trial an error on their own.

I'd love to buy a pair of those mirrors to try on a leader Optimus Prime. Could you do me a favor and ask if it's possible to order spare mirrors?

Stencils? The kit comes with decals.. no stencils, though.
