    Yeah, I have to pry my shoulders apart and flip them. I'm just scared to do it.

    I’d recommend contacting a board-certified orthopedic surgeon for that problem.

    You don't need to... I have the misassembled Galvatron, and you just need to rotate it. I was referring to alt mode.

    Look at the picture that @Gepard posted.


    The review from @PrimeVsPrime has the misassembled shoulders.

    Thanks for the help, but I just got one of those nylon tools and did the shoulder surgery. It was amazingly easy with the tool.

    Given how simple the mod was, i wonder why they simply didnt go with that placement as it seems obvious, the top one looks really out of place when you look at it

    I'm super late here, but what kind of tool did you use? Sounds ideal.

    Having just gotten Kingdom Galvatron myself, I just wanted to re-weigh my thoughts in on this discussion.

    Unfortunately, "lifting and sliding in" is impossible to achieve for these tabs, because the lower chest plate blocks any clearance that would allow for that. The only way to win this game is not to play it at all; EITHER the tabs are too long, OR the slot is too long. Unless a little careful sanding is done on either end things have to be forcefully pushed and "broken in".

    With that said... My tabs have been flattened into rounded bumps now, without any stress mark or shearing (which is what happened to Dogbomber's). They still hold in place and it's much easier to clip them in and out. HOWEVER taking in what Phamduc said, it does make sense not to push the tab in at a 90-degree perpendicular manner, but to sort of slide it in and out at an angle.

    To Dogbomber: Assuming you haven't fixed/replaced your Galvatron my suggestion is that you apply a thin coat of superglue to the tab, let it dry out, try it out and apply more or sand down as necessary. Even with the tab gone it can still be made into a viable friction joint, methinks.

    I got the peg in once by accident, without realizing I'd done it or how. It really seems like this step is not needed at all for cannon mode - it is kept together by pressure from the treads - and not worth the risk of attempting.
