    Two Megatrons eh? Reminds me of the Megatron Corps from the old TF Manga. If you had six Apollyons you could recreate that exactly.

    "You... you can't be here, Apollyon. The others..."
    "The others, what, Prime? They won't understand?"
    "It's complicated. You're third party... they wouldn't accept you."
    "Yes... this righteous stance of the certified stock. Spare me... this 'base', is it officially licensed?"
    "I... don't, just go..."
    "Look at me, Prime. Do I not look like Megatron, do I not turn from a pistol into a robot... with feelings? Do you not long for an equal in battle? There'll be plenty of battles for the two of us... if you just... let me stay."
    --from off screen--
    "Ask him why I got replaced with that pile of unfinished crap, 'Ultra' Mangus."
    "Silence, Stack, this doesn't concern you. Sorry, he drove me over."

    Was expecting Apollyon to be riddled with flaws from reading this thread, but rest assured he is glorious. The box is a POS(fell apart as I was opening) and the instructions are a little lacking but he is amazing. The only problem I have is a scuff on the gun barrel which I fixed with a silver sharpie. The transformation is intuitive if you pay attention and have transformed MP-05 before(I actually like complex transformations and find them relaxing) Just note that you can't collapse the legs until you extend the feet. Very impressed!

    I thought pushing the thigh panel was supposed to help the leg extend back for robot mode, but I can't even reach it because it because it'sinside the lower leg when collapsed. When are you supposed to push it? Which video(s) address it?

    Yet again, assuming that the majority have issues is a false assumption. There are waves of people who have no issues. Unfortunately you will only here the ones who have problems posting for pages about their issues, where as those who have no issues will probably not even post anything at all.

    That is the nature of the internet, unless there is a complaint you won't hear about it. Thats not to say those complaining don't have a right. It just means that it paints a false picture of the quality of this product.

    Megatron, I have failed you.
    Tried to transform Polly for the first time last night, but I suck and so got stuck at the last few bits.

    My problems:

    1) Circled in red is the tab from the scary thin bit of plastic which pulls out then gets pushed back in. I cannot collapse the gun because the tab gets stuck on the main section above. Do I just need to push the tab in a bit more? (it doesn't want to)

    2) The rear needs connecting to the front, circled in dark blue. To do this, the metal struct, circled in light blue needs pushing right on the hinge. However I can't do this because the main lower chest piece gets in the way.

    Can anyone offer help?

    So I'm in a bit of a halfway situation where my Apollyon shoulders are slightly too loose out of the box and the new ones are scarily tight. How have others dealt with this?

    Finally was able to extend his leg out this morning. I don't know what I did differently. I guess just pulling from a different angle. He'll be in robot mode for a while now.

    Are there any videos on replacing the arm joints or no? I was just wondering how hard it would be to do if need be, and I don't have mine yet to study it.

    No video that I know of but it's easy. Pop the arm off the ball joint and use the included screwdriver to remove the single screw on the hammer of the gun mode. Slip off the hammer and the joint comes right out. Place the new joint in and screw the hammer back down. Pose megatron.

    I think your issue circled in blue could be caused by an incomplete folding of the shoulder joints. I had a similar problem last night. The ball joints of the arms can an L shape to them. The metal bar that attached to the joint should fold up into the groove of the L before being able to tab into the chest. As for the red circled part. I pressed the 2 red tabs on the side of the torso and was conscious of that small tab. The clearance is tight but if you press on the front of the torso and you collapse it, it should fit. Also, I had to press the red torso sides in extremely hard before it wouldn't catch anymore.

    Hopefully this helps.
