Jesse Wittenrich aka @RID_NightViper on Twitter, who represents Fun Pub, posted up a quick how-to for fixing Botcon 2013 Hoist. Some figures were mis-assembled at the factory. By following these instructions, you can rectify the problem which hinders transformation.
Check out the pictures after the break or follow it in full over at the Twitter account. So many of you probably have noticed that something is wrong with @BotCon Hoist / Electro’s torso. There’s a #BotConFix for that.
How he looks out of box (for some of you, some didn’t have this problem). This is a factory misassembly #BotConFix
There is a small piece inside of his chest that has been placed in there backwards. Thankfully, it’s a really easy fix #BotConFix
To start, take out the three screws in the piece that forms the center of his back #BotConFix
Then remove that piece, as well as the chest piece from which you have just unscrewed it #BotConFix
See that little piece of black plastic with a spring underneath it? That is what is backwards #BotConFix
This little bugger here is the cause of all your problems. #BotConFix
There are those little notches in the ends of the piece. You want to stick the piece back in so that those are still visible. #BotConFix
In other words, you want to stick the piece back into the chest with it going in this direction #BotConFix
Screw it all back together and that’s it! just one little piece was put in the wrong way. #BotConFix
The fix let’s his chest swing into proper place and also give him more head clearance for transformation. #BotConFix
