    I got my Siege Astrotrain last night and he’s AWESOME! Love this figure.

    BUT, when I try to set him in launch pad mode, one of the sections won’t lay flat.

    This isn’t a deal breaker, just a frustration. I’ve already popped the pins out and trying to figure out the issue is, but no luck so far. Anyone else have this problem with theirs?

    they are ALL like that..

    if you checked videos reviews and checked for comments on here, it's been stated many times.

    And yes, mine does the same and it's really annoying.

    I've yet to take mine apart to fix, and haven't seen any mention of a fix yet.

    I fixed mine a while back and put pics in the review thread last month.

    Yeah, the review thread has some very helpful tips on how to correct this issue. Mine was pretty severe and needed a few different corrective techniques, but it lays perfectly flat now.

    Thanks for pointing me that way. I typically only browse a couple forums on here and have never ventured over there. I'll try some of those tips this evening.
