    I did something. Saw Impactor in box without Bluestreak which was perfect since I had one loose. So I caved. As a justification to myself the value of the complete set is far greater than the individual bots. Now I have all of Wreckage. not my pic.

    Just got the Bruticus KO set in but I can't get the legs to transform. Are the pointy tabs on the hinge joints misassembled backwards?

    Yeah just trim them off or they'll eventually break thru the shins.

    Are you talking about the tabs that goes in the "knees" in correctly? I know that some figures (included genuine ones) with such a design had given me a headache to get them to click in correctly. It was all about the angle (rotation) of the part that just needed to be "just right"...

    He has the copy that has the misassembled knee joint. If he forces it he'll damage the shins on the front.

    Here's another pic with the legs standing upright with the rest of the figure and points pull backwards. I think the pointy tabs are on the wrong side if transformation videos are any indication, but I can't be sure.

    The triangle should be on the back side of the leg in robot mode not the front side

    Just cut the pointy tabs off? Will that impact stability or anything? They must have molded them with the pointy bit for some reason...

    Thanks for the quick replies guys.
    I just unscrewed the leg apart but the joint is pinned... And the pin removal set I got off amazon won't budge it. f@#$%.

    I also can't seem to peg the chest fins into his shoulders. Did I get a bad part or is the CBB KO just remove this slot despite retaining the tab? Emgo's legit copy included for comparison.
