    So are the ring hinges that form the very tips of the robot mode wings easy to crack as mine did after the first transformation? Is that a common issue?

    I don't know if it's common, but I noticed that when separating the ring/pegs, if you pulled it apart from the top then it seemed to stress where your crack is. So I now pull the joined peg out of the hole and the separate the bottom first using a spudger. There was then less stress at the top.

    (This doesn't answer your question, of course, but it might be of help to someone.)

    I also used a spudger to separate the two halves at the bottom. In the long run as long as these wing tips don't fall off it's all good.

    This is definitely one of the longest times it took to transform one figure. I think my past record was 45 minutes for the Beagle mosepeda ride armor. This guy took about 1.5 hours going slow and being careful. Pretty cool moments in the transformation throughout, but getting some of those arm panels aligned was not super fun. While robot mode is the best mode, planet mode looks better in person than I thought it would. I'm going to leave it in planet mode for a while and then transform it again when I have another evening or morning to devote to it.

    I’m about an hour in and have to take a break. I can’t get the arms to sit right in between the chest halves. Not sure whR I’m missing but it’s driving me crazy right now.

    Second this. It doesn't make sense, mechanically, to split the rings at the top first, because they physically hook together on a different axis. ALWAYS separate the bottom tips first before unhooking.

    Had to undo everything because I didn’t have the hip flaps flush. Not sure the juice is worth the squeeze.
