    That's why I said that the transformation could be tweaked to make the F-15 cockpit to resemble the animation model.

    F. You got me curious about mine, so I checked and I have the same issue—2 lefts, so unfortunately we can’t trade (anyone else?). But my wing closes fine so there might be something else going on with your copy Chchchch.

    Edit: didn’t see @GX9901DoubleX ’s comment on your post, Chchchch—I guess I’m not adding that much new info haha.

    Has anyone attempted to remove the fake cockpit to see how it would look with the real cockpit? Or would it sit way too far back?

    This will have to be the permanent resting place for the feet because of the ankles.

    No I still appreciate it and thanks, that tells me it's probably not the hinge causing the problem, I may need to just trim the tab a little or something!

    I'll still probably trade hinges if the opportunity arises though :D

    I'm actually pretty much OK with the instructions as they are. Sure the lines are busy at times but you also have to remember that Bandai items are normally much easier to transform without many parts being in the way. Have you seen 3P instructions? They are a mess because of this with some exceptions.

    The only thing I'd like to change is if they come in some sort of booklet like they used to instead of an obnoxious home floor plan, let me tell ya!

    You didn’t feel like going through the hassle of trying to get it exchanged I guess? Or was this your second copy now?

    Anyone know how to safely remove the pins on this thing - like on the shoulder pilons? Or have done so?

    *runs and checks
    Mine has the correct ones, but his right wing in alt mode un pegs easily. I don’t know how much difference it’ll make.
    Sorry bro that you have to left ones. Hopefully someone will have two right ones! Good luck!

    They REALLY need to control the line weight and only thicken the lines that s important to said step, and highlight in yellow. Did this for years on more complicated drawings and it work wonders.

    I'm happy to announce that my wing hinges are correct and have no weirdness. And that's even after dropping Starscream and popping the hinge and foldable part of the wing out.

    No, no, guys. Please, no congratulations! :oops: :p

    I wonder how much it would add to the cost to specifically contract time for only MPs. This reminds me of 44 after a year wait you get what should have been easily avoidable QC problems. Stupid mistakes you get from rushed production.
