    So I'm going through my closet full of boxes and happened across the wal-mart exclusive Universe Ruination set (the tiger camo one). I noticed the chest piece for ruination doesn't stay on Mega Octane whatsoever. Is this a common problem with that set or am I doing something wrong?

    I can't speak for anyone else, but mine stays on just fine. I have heard that people started noticing mold degradation on that figure though, so maybe I just ended up lucky.

    My Standard Ruination has exactly the same problem since I opened him, I stuck a bit of blue tack on it to keep it on. Bit annoying really.

    Of course it has to be asked, are you placing Mega Octane's arms back or down in Gestalt mode? They should be back or else the chest piece won't stay on.

    I was going to ask this. This is important, because there are two ridges on the inside of the chest shield. When you lower the Mega Octane's arms, instead of them pointing to the back, they get in the way so the chest plate won't lock securely.
