    Yeah, it gets easier after you do it a few times though. Did you try watching any transformation videos? I usually do with mp figures. It's clearer than the instructions and I don't want to risk breaking my expensive toys.

    Lol I’ve been watching reviews on repeat. But now I can’t even push the assembly on his right back in. God the tolerances are a bit funky here.

    I'm sure you got it in by this time but I always make sure that I get the arms transformed up to this point:

    It makes it easier to push in the assembly as it transfers the force closer to the base. Mine became less tight after a few transformations by the way so it might just be a break in period.

    Right I was thinking that was the case after I saw a transformation back. Thank you so much. And @Snaku as well. I’m gonna try to give some pics later.

    Just got mine. Once we have the new face sculpt, I'll be a very happy camper. I love this figure.

    If you bought it from a store/internet store I'd try contacting them for help.

    Is there a new face sculpt? Thought that was just wishful thinking.

    Man I was gonna transform this guy today but I remembered those window tabs. Do you think it’d work if I just shaved them off?

    Whoa, shave what off?

    Edit: oh you mean the front windshield? Hell yeah shave that shit! Lol. I trimmed mine down ever so slightly so that it still snaps in and out. More like at an angle at the front and back of the tabs.

    I’m thinking just straight up removing them. Cause theoretically it’ll still peg into the roof and stay secure, the bottom just rests down.

    The front windshield has tabs at the bottom (where it touches the hood of the car) that feel like they are too long. You can see them sticking up in this photo of mine. They don't look that long, but when you're transforming him it feels like they'll break off or snap something.

    I think the new face is coming with one of their stunticons. It was shown a while back.

    Yeah you can totally shave it off completely and it would look better that way. But it won't make that clicky sound when you transform it. I take it that you're not as obsessed with clicky things as I am. It's cool. It's cool.
