I just got RotF Prime and took out his batteries. Lights and sounds just aren't worth it. They should include an off button witht he guy.

It took me an hour or so to tranform RotF Prime, but he's pretty easy to me now. He's still really difficult, though. I'd have to say MP Megs beats him out. Because, you always have to be very careful with MP Megs ... even if you know how he transforms. Just because there's a real chance that expencive figure will break. On contrast, Prime's not nearly as expencive, so there isn't that anxiety.

Your post might not get seen here by someone who can help. I suggest you look for a thread about him or start a new one. I don't have him so I can't help.

Is that all? It was about 10 times that for me!

Prime feels WAY more sturdy so yeah, I totally agree with you.

TS OP is too small. He'd be better if he was delux sized. It's not a hard transformation like ROTF OP it's just that it's so tiny and fiddly.

Lining up transformers 2007 Ironhide's rear truck body with his front truck body took me at least 30 minutes to Solve,and positioning Cybertron Mirage's hands in boat to line up the ship's bow pieces took around 15 minutes, But I say the most annoying transformer to change back into vehicle mode...didn't have a vehicle mode at all. Energon Unicron's change from robot to planet was the MOST annoying transformation I have ever done so far. I could not fold his feet up to save my life, not to mention I snapped off his purple planet shell, and popped off the hinges that held the minicon ring together.

The most annoying section of him was folding his feet right so that you could connect those pegs on his minicon ring in place. You had to push that black section UPWARDS first, then fold the feet down. Including a a short break due to frustration, changing him took about nearly two hours. I even thought about taking him back three times. but after i got the hang of him, I loved changing him.
Unfortunately, about 2 years ago, the clasp or minicon gimmick peg that keeps his chest cannon retracted broke or wore out, so his cannon refuses to lock into place. Now the cannon is pushing the purple shell pieces forward, throwing him off symmetry.

Sentinel Prime is by far my most complex transformer, with all the panels and the seperate steps. Binaltech grimlock is very tough too. Though he is not complex in the least, I find Jetfire to be a pain to transform due to having to align all the panels. Its like getting those chest panels and arms to fit in ROTF Optimus' vehicle mode with a factor of ten.

But the reason I am resurecting this thread is because I just got Universe Galvatron and he is one of the toughest transformers to get right. as of right now the tank has a bunch of holes in its back panels and for the life of me I dont know how to make it work

EDIT: I wrote Universe Cybertron first, but I really meant Universe Galvatron

Actually one transformeation scheme I dont think I will ever do again is the combined ROTF Optimus and Jetfire mode. It's just so hard to get right. Plus, there are not too many places it connects creating a lot of pressure on those segments and tabs. And I am not a big fan of that mode either, it looks like a mess.

I have no transformed several molds and all the ones considered hard and by far the award would go to MP Megatron. I like the figure and I don't mind its complexity but I really dislike the force you have to put into some pieces during transformation. I transforemed him to gun but now back to robot I have hs piece that just wont give way. The chest is made up of a few telescoping layers. I get the first one pulled out (with his green and red button) but the lower level, his abdominal area just wont come out. There is a piece of it stuck on one side and it just wont give way. Did anyone else have this problem?
