Twintwist question.

Sorry if this has been answered. But does anyone know if Twintwist is supposed to come apart at the waist? My son was playing with it and the torso slid apart, I put it back together and it seems fine. Just wondering if this is an intended feature? I don't have Topspin, but wondering if they can switch bodies back and forth.


Update, I'm able now to take it apart rather easily and it snaps firmly back into place. And it still feels solid and able to rotate torso around without issues. Now I really wish, I had of picked up that Topspin I saw awhile back. I would've been able to create Twin-spin and Top-twist.

Mine does that, I think its supposed to click in place like some of the other bots that use that mould but for some reason he doesn't.

Re: Twintwist question.

Yup, I noticed that almost immediately with Topspin, cause his transformation involves waist rotation

It's a fairly neat feature, even if unintended

Re: Twintwist question.

Its called a mushroom peg, or at least that's what I've heard it called. You find them in various locations on different transformers. Be careful not to wear it too loose, but otherwise its a good design for keeping two pieces together firmly but which also experience a lot of stress and so can separate. Its a good way of avoiding permanent breakage.
