    So I got the Ultimate Gift Set as a belated Christmas gift yesterday and i can't transform Optimus as he has a seemingly pointless tab on his back. does anybody know of a video review that shows him going from robot to truck? cause all the reviews i can find go from truck to robot. any help is appreciated

    If I understand correctly you mean the tabs on the bit with the gas tank? If so you have to jam those bastards into the first pair of coverings for where the wheels go in robot mode. There are slots for them molded into these bits You might have to shave a little plastic off from the inside of the bit the tabs are meant to plug into. The plastic they used is a pain and the two won't really want to fit together. As I said though just push the tabs in one leg at a time or shave a little plastic from the inside and you shouldn't have issues. Mine was the same annoying way and unfortunately I haven't seen any review showing how to go from bot to truck.

    I hope I explained that enough, I'd show you with pics but I don't have a camera on hand.

    Check Optibotimus or mitchsantona, they usually show a back and to. Dunno if they've reviewed that mold though.

    When I said gas tank I meant the bits that form his backpack in robot mode and that cover the hands in vehicle mode. When you say on his back do you mean directly on his back or the back of the figure. I looked at mine and the only tab I saw was the one near the base of the cab towards his butt. That tabs doesn't have any purpose in bot mode. It's for vehicle mode where it pegs the cab into his well butt.

    As for the doors well your going to have to fiddle with it. On mine I have that issue because the legs aren't pegged into the cab right. If that's the issue then you might have to do as I said in the previous post to get a better fit.
