    My rampage won't go on all the way either. No matter how hard I push it is a bit off. He is still quite stable but, irksome nonetheless.

    Agreed on everything you said. Alt mode is boring but I knew it wouldn't have any "features" anyways so I wasn't set up for disappointment. But considering what this figure has to do, I think he's pretty great. A couple extra joints in the arms (so you could move the inner arms more without also having to move the outer arms) would have been good, but damn is he cool looking. I still haven't combined them, but I'm excited for it.

    With a bit of camera trickery you can fake an articulated dump bed

    With the 2nd Overload that I tried, it wasn't as bad as the first. This may be more so due to Rampage's connector then. I was able to get him to sit flush on the 1st attempt.

    I guess I'm lucky cause my Rampage went in perfectly on the first try. Took some force but it did happen.

    it might be an isolated QC issue. My copy didn't have this problem. Is it possible the problem is on Rampage's side? If you get Skipjack, I would check.

    It needs a LOT of force to get in...after a few dozen tries, that wore down Rampage's connector enough to fit better.

    I have heard that Skipjack slides on and off easier

    If you’re into sliding action, then most definitely yes

    Can someone clarify for me if the "nose" is supposed to be painted yellow like on the box? Mine isn't and I'm having a hard time telling from others' pictures.

    Mine isn't either

    This is a great figure. Big commanding presence for a character that really is a background bot in terms of name recognition within the franchise. I've loved all the constructicons in this series.

    Rampage not sliding in all the way? Mine didn't either. Still tough but look for mold flash in Rampage and slice it off. Did that for mine and it seats all the way down now.

    I just got overload today, Hes a really sweet figure, but as I started messing with him I found out one of the pins on his outer right arm wasnt screwed in all the way which ends up making his arm fall off. Is there any way I could fix this?

    realistically, you would be better off returning it and getting a replacement right now, when it is just released and easier to find.
