    Hey guys.
    What's the first thing you do when you get a new Transformer, besides opening the box(Although that might get not be the case with some that want to keep them MISB/MOSC). I TRANSFORM them, personally.;)

    Once they are out of package I mess around with the figure, put them in different poses. Try and transform them and just mess with the figure. Even have it sit on my desk until I'm ready to put it on the shelf... Which is usually two days later.

    i use it to beat up an autobot/decepticon opponent by making him/her a combat master.....its mostly for articulation and seeing which parts need future, but also i like my figures to fight. the only time it went wrong is when AoE grimlock fought CW brake neck and gave his name a literal sense.......

    Try to figure out how to get them into altmode without using instructions. If I can't figure it out after a little while, I'll take a glimpse at the instructions

    I transform them. If it's into alt mode I then check it out. Transformant back into robot mode. Then pose it around find a pose I like and put it on the shelf. It's the first transformation is into robot mode then I just pose it and put it on the shelf

    Since QC these days is terrible, I have to be on the lookout for it. So after I open the box, I check to be sure that all articulation works and that the accessories can fit into their proper places, along with being sure there are no major factory errors. Next, I transform the toy and check all of the alternate mode's functions to be sure that they work too. Then I transform the toy again to be sure that I know what the steps are before I put the instructions away.

    This. Have you ever managed it with an Alternator/Binaltech though? ;)

    I like to see how they look with associated characters. Or see how they scale vehicle wise.

    I think I may have with Smokescreen. Prime, on the other hand, was a nightmare.

    I'll transform it. Typically I do that and check out any looseness in the joints or how the articulation is at the same time.

    Use to just fiddle them, maybe transform them a couple of times, but now it's the standard QC check.
