    That is weird. Thought only the -25 have that issue.

    My Max-29's fine and does not unlock even by feather touch.

    I don't install the Super Parts, tho.

    Also, I never use the provided stand when in Battroid mode on any of my DXs.

    Only ever use the stand when in fighter-mode.

    i don’t know if it pops out, if i arch it like the instructions say it doesn’t lock. i may be doing something wrong. so for now i’ll use the stand.

    Ok.

    Hopefully you are just missing a step or so in the transformation process.

    There are reports of people getting DX Max-29 lemons, so issues with it are not unheard of.

    Try to check YF-29 Max videos such as Wotafa's, as he's got a good and detailed tf-process for the Max to find out if you're really missing something:

    I believe i watched that one already. Took it off the stand to try and adjust it. the stand seems to have set everything where it needs to be no more wobble.

    So back when 2024 started, I was greeted to a wonderful elbow breakage while putting the 17D into the display case. Now months later, after using multiple glues, epoxies and cements, the locite super glue with glue activator finally did the trick. I knew when I stuck the two parts together and they suctioned together like a toilet plunger kissing the water hole I was confident Gamlin could come back. Also, all the balljoints have become crap and needed to given a good white goo kiki treatment to tighten back up. Once, he's good to go, he's going to chill in the display for a long time.

    From Jenius on the YF-30 (Battriod/Gerwalk/Valk transformation).



    Finding one not yellowed is a challenge.

    Sadly, the YF-30 has several awesome other schemes, that wouldn't yellow (and would likely appeal to G1 fans), but Bandai never made any of them. :(

    A very missed opportunity for Bandai to re-issue the DX YF-30 into those from the Macross 30: Voices across the Galaxy video game in Skywarp and Thrust Seeker colours.

    How did that happen? It was due to an accident or an out-of-the-blue breakage?

    Dang, I would buy that, but no money right now.

    Out of the blue.... I was just adjusting the gunpod and then his arm fell off. :(

    76 days at sea and Basara finally gets to fly. Ok, so he's still trapped inside the packaging for now, but he'll soon fly free! Funny that Hobby Genki just cut the box they got them delivered in up to ship him to me.

    First time I've ever chosen sea freight and that was entertaining to watch it disappear then pop back up for tracking.

    I still need to watch the entire series, but got him in case I really end up liking the show.

    It picks up after the 1st 10 episodes, I think you’ll end up liking that toy more afterwards, it was 1 of the best toys Yamato designed.
