    If they're rubbing, they're probably not clicked all the way into position - they go all the way up the wheel well with a hard 'click'.

    If everything is in place, then maybe there is a misaligned pin somewhere, or some plastic flash that's still there. I have 7 versions of this mold and they all move freely. I haven't heard of an issue like this, so it may just be a rare instance - are the arms transformed completely?

    So, pulled this figure out today. A few things:

    1.) At what angle exactly are the door windows supposed to be accordioned in on the back- this seems to be the only part that doesn’t tab in somehwere.

    2.) I haven’t seen this reported anywhere, but you can store his rifle in between the back and shoulders. It rests there securely and looks like it is hanging off his back when viewed from the front.

    3.) For some reason, in car mode his front wheels touch the rear part of the wheel well. He rolls, but the wheels are definitely rubbing against the well. Ia this normal?


    4.) For some reason, there is a huge gap between the panel with the side mirror and the one directly below it in car mode. No amount of panel massaging fixes this...

    Thanks for the pics- so basically the solid red area is supposed to sit flush with the inner surface of the windshield and the middle black part?

    More or less. They just collapse using those two joints in order to be positioned as you see. I suggest sitting with the figure in front of you while you match the photo I posted. Once you do it once or twice it'll make more sense going forward.

    I'll just wait for the inevitable V2.

    TT has the license.

    They did the impossible to make Sunny a reality.

    It is a lovely mold, highly rated almost everywhere. To some, the very best mold ever made. AJP reviews are 5 stars. Not a single complaint.

    There is no way in hell Sideswipe is not getting the same treatment. MP-12 is a wonderful toy, but looks dated, specially when posed next to Mp-44 and MP-39.
