    I'm not home to check my figure right now but I have 2 guesses that come to mind.

    1. Pull the arms back out, is there a central part between the torso and the arm that can be independently rotated at both ends that may be rotated wrong when yours was assembled?

    2. Another possibility is some part that should be unique right and left may have been assembled on the wrong sides. Since the arms do line up with each other I would assume it isn't a duplicate part where you have both right arm or both left arm parts.

    I think it's normal for that gap to be there (not to say it should be there). My Gunfighter and two Archenemy's both have it.

    I can't deny the possibility I missed it myself, but just knowing the fanbase I would expect a gap like that would have had a LOT of vocal complaints if it was common.

    I am pretty sure these pieces should be more angled, like this / \ I can check on mine when i get home.

    It looks like some pieces in shoulder joints have specific angle that create pressure on shoulder at transformation. I think that they can be a reason for the angled hood.

    Mine has a symbol on the front of truck mode (the spot on top of the grille) and one on each truck doors like the reissue of G2 Laser Prime.

    I gave him a belt buckle faction symbol in the "U" below the grill.

    That's exactly what I was thinking of doing.

    G2 Prime with a big gaudy belt buckle just seems like a good fit!

    I thought of doing that, but couldn't get past the idea of Prime sporting an autobot pube tat.
