    I just got Cybertron Soundwave and I transformed it, but somehow there is this 4 peg that should be attached to the leg and cockpit, but keep refusing to get attached, is this a problem with this mold? I am afraid forcing it will break the peg

    Below, are the image of the peg in questions

    Is it definitely Cybertron or is it Galaxy Force? There's a common fault in the latter that basically makes them impossible to tab together in jet mode.

    If anyone has a solution for that, I'd be all ears of course

    I think I recall having that issue with my Cybertron version too.

    That mold in general has issues with every release. Looks good but it isn’t very functional

    I vaguely remember that figure being a bear to finagle into jet mode.

    You're just doing it wrong. The pelvis should be vertical, not horizontal when going to vehicule mode.
    You'll even find that the side "skirt" (no idea of the real name) will have a place to peg in.

    Other general mistransformed part is the head/neck in robot mode. 90% of the pics on the web and reviewer got it wrong too.

    Here's pic of a correctly transformed Galaxy force one, on both modes :
