Siege Wheeljack issue

Anyone else get a figure where the head won't flip down? I am REEFING on this and it is not moving. I'm looking for ideas before getting the screwdriver and knife.

You mean Earthrise Wheeljack? There was no Siege Wheeljack. Earthrise isn't out in Canada yet, not to my knowledge anyway, might get better luck asking this of our US friends.

Re: Siege Wheeljack issue

Sorry. War for Cybertron Wheeljack.

I ended up having to trim the slot behind the head to get it to flip. What a pain. 2 the same too. Taking the screws out did nothing to loosen it either. I believe it's glued.

Same figure. Earthrise/War for Cybertron.

It's not out yet at mass retail here.

Unless you bought it from US retail, none of the E-rise figures are released in Canada yet.

I bought 2 at Ages 3 and Up on the weekend. There were a few others sold there since last Tuesday.

Re: Siege Wheeljack issue

Re: Siege Wheeljack issue

The tolerance on the tab at the back of the base plate for the head varies. My copy was fine, but my friend's took a bit more to get past the tab. Had a similar issue with a tab on the Hoist. It appears that they're using a much stiffer plastic on some of the Earthrise figures than before. It's scary as it feels like you might break it when you have those tolerance issues.
