    Hi. For those who have Hexatron: I transformed him and now his hands are stuck in his forearms. They are tight! Anyone else have this issue? If so, how did you pop them out? Thanks.

    Maybe try loosening the screws on his arm some? I move the thumbs over top of his hands so they don't get in the way.

    Yes, I had that problem, first time. I fished his hands out with a tent peg. Failing that, you could release the pressure by untightening the screws in his forearm.

    Ok, so it is not just me. That is in some way comforting.

    Edit: loosened two screws on each arm and they came right out with a small pull. Thanks.

    I had that problem originally, but it is actually because you need to refrain from rotating his wrists before you fold his hands in. Hard to explain, but basically you want to keep his palms facing each other (default hand position), and fold them in just like that. Should be able to flip them back out with ease because the fit isn't nearly as tight. Shouldn't need to loosen any screws or anything.

    Hope that helps!

    I love Hexatron! but if I were to have one grip it would be his hands. I think they are very stiff and will be the first couple transformations but they losen up with use.

    my suggestion would be what was already stated, and what i do. just fold the thumb over the top of the hand so that it's perpendicular to the wrist articulation and not parallel. i've had absolutely no problems this way.

    Nailed it. I've been doing it that way and the only issue I've had is when the thumb shifts a bit to one side getting caught and the inner wall.
