    I was messing with my Uni 2.0 Silverbolt the other night and noticed that he wasn't making the TF sound anymore when you push his 'spine' through his torso and the head pops up. still does it on my new henkei bolt. I'm worried that the generally violent action of pushing his head up has worn down a trigger or pulled a wire loose.

    has this happened to anyone else and have had to fix it or does anyone know how to pop him open and see whats going on? i don't see screws anywhere.

    Did you change the batteries? Hasbro's factory batteries suck ass (Hell, the ones that came out of my ROTF Prime on the 30th couldn't even get my camera to turn on on the 31st)

    When you push the head down there could be some wires visible under silverbolts right side of the head socket. Those may have become frayed during transformation.

    Stangely like you mentioned darkwind seems to be wired much tighter internally so there are fewer electronic problems with it.

    The only way to fix a frayed wire will be to open the toy. But silverbolt electronics that connect with the waist clip would be the only thing to particularly watch out for. Easier than a toy with springs or Gear functions to fix.

    If everything else works, that sounds like a frayed wire or loose connection somewhere inside Silverbolt, and not a battery issue. If that particular effect had a different battery, which makes no sense, I've never heard of it and Hasbro mentions no such thing in their instructions.
