    The paint on the battle mask was jacked up, the chest plate wouldn’t tab in(fell off constantly), the left wing was so tight the plastic stressed when transforming it. It was bad. The worst part I have yet to see another one. If I find one in the wild again I will give him one more chance.

    Are you sure you were attaching the chest armor correctly? Cause it took me awhile to realize I wasn't. Once I figured out the right way it stayed on perfectly fine.

    One of his legs comes off sometimes when I'm posing him but it's not really bothersome. The main reason I was happy to get them is I feel my Ironhide should be just a smidge taller than Ratchet.

    I came across a second Mirage. So I plan to donate it at this year's Christmas toy drive with some other stuff.

    Turns out that swapping LG Twin Twist's target master with Crosshairs's hammer dealie is a pretty good trade.

    Twin Twist seems to have acclimatised to his new gear pretty quick.

    The only problem is that I had previously given the little guy to POTP Ricochet, who is now once again in need of a partner. Any ideas?

    I got my son Skytread and Mirage for his birthday. Mirage’s transformation seems overly complicated for having such a clunky alt mode. I much prefer the Classics design.

    Skytread has QC issues. The jet part is ok but his tank mode won’t tab shut and the laser has performance issues and droops. It seems like some of the tolerances are too tight at the tabs on top and where the laser meets the waist part. Unless there’s some trick I’m not getting?

    It's not just your copy - the tank mode doesn't tab together properly for most (all?) people.

    I haven't done this, but here's the link I found. Hope it helps.
