Wreckage's automorph

Postby underwear ninja » Mon Feb 18, 2008 7:51 pm

I recently bought Wreckage, and enjoy the figure for the most part- but I've got one gripe with mine: Automorph.

The arms are attached to the automorph parts,so when I move the arms up and down he transforms his whole torso. Is this a problem with all the figures, or perhaps just mine? And either way, is their a way to fix it? It looks like the rear of the vehicle is supposed to latch onto some li'l pegs or something on the shoulders, but I couldn't get this to work.

I'd appreciate some advice on this, as I got the figure for a possible repaint project (Bludgeon)

They failed to put some locking clips on him. 2 clear rubber bands(you get a million per bot) will hold him shut.

But outside of that, he is friggin awesome, as a matter of fact, he's my Movie Megatron(the other guy is called Fury), just SHHH, he's being covert right now.

So its Brawl all over again, gotcha. Well darn. Ironically I thought "I'll never use those clear rubber bands," and threw some away the other day. Thanks for the advice anyhow, and I'll be sure to save my bands from now on.

I had the same problem with mine when I first got him. The solution I came up with was to just keep pressure on the back of the gun and then move the arms to whatever position you want them in.

wreckage is the one that jump started me collecting again now that im grown up. (i got him free on an online contest) yes all of them have that problem, but at least he hold together when i display him. you could hold his back while adjusting his arms, i hold his shoulders together instead. but realy, it doesnt bother me

Wreckage is without a doubt, my favorite movie figure.

The only issue with mine is that his right arm is extremely loose. Its as weak is my BW Insecticon figure, which has been abused for years.

Its just a little irritating that its right out of the package and I already have to put nail polish on a ball-joint.

Thats weird, my Wreckage is completely fine with working automorph and tight parts. infact i'd say that if anything, the automorph is a bit stiff and i have to use my thumbs to push up on his shoulders and bring his rear vehicle section up with my fingers to initiate the automorph.

i only bought 3 movie figures coz i didn't really like the designs but Wreckage is awesome, very ninja like, and i love the way you can holster his weapons in robot mode.

My Wreckage has loose shoudlers. It's free of this gripe, but some other people have this same problem.

It seems to be hit or miss with his shoulders... but even if you have one with the problem, just hold onto his chest when you move the arms, problem solved.

Wreckage, Landmine, Longarm, Stockade, and Dropkick are all wonderful figs the "In the movie only" stick up the patuckus people are missing out on out of their need to be elitist.

I just snagged a Wreckage online for cheap. Does this problem occur in all Wreckages? Does it make him had to pose or anything?

I hate the automorph feature, Hasbro should forever abandon this idea as it's worthless. Anyway to to disable this feature? I want to be able to pose him without his head ducking down.
