    I hate that. I'm of the mind that collectors should be able to transform them the way they want. What are we supposed to do? Get out the instructions every single time or something? Until Takara makes a figure that cannot be transformed incorrectly near enough is good enough. I'd like a mod to weigh in on this instead of some random guy.

    you have your own personal rules about round pieces and corrct transformation and bothers you when people dont follow them and you ask that nobody give you shit about pointing it out.
    the board has actual real rules about content and correct posting but your okay with not even bothering with them and you hate and make a big fuss when someone points it out.
    this is called blatant hypocrisy.
    take a long look in the mirror and consider this because its visible and its obvious.
    if its not okay to point out misposting its not okay to point out mistransformation.
    choose one.

    lol did you just hold a grudge like a 3rd grader?

    But I'll try to do better Mr. Hall monitor. I didn't realize pointing out a minor tranforming error was against the rules.

    That's just pretty, man. Great pic and pose. Those expressive face options are prefect, IMO. So much more than just a 'toy'. A prefect CG-model render brought to life... You just had to remind me that I haven't gotten mine yet. :lol  For sure my first purchase of 2017.....soon!

    Truly stunning.

    This and Cheetor really makes me wish Takara would do the others. I could only imagine how stunning a Masterpiece Waspinator would look.

    My Soundwave's shoulder was like that. Swung like a windmill.
    I popped off the shoulder pin, generously applied floor wax to the hinge piece and all is well with the world.

    It isn't difficult with a pin pusher. They're really cheap on Amazon. I have a few. The hardest part is figuring out which side to go from.

    Just opened Ratchet today.
    I absolutely LOVE this figure. The transformation is fun, but still includes a few 'Masterpiece Moments' that seem complicated until you actually complete the move, then it's almost awe inspiring that this huge bot erupted from that Vannette!
    Man, I already know this week's 'desk bot'. That's for sure.

    I don't understand what I'm looking at after the spoiler button. Was that a PM? Something else?

    I have the same exact problem with my MP Ironhide. It sticks at 0 and 90 degrees, anything in between is flop city.

    I need to start getting good at fixing bots.
