BotCon 2013 - Machine Wars Hoist Chest Repair Guide for Convention Exclusive Action Figure

As promised, the folks at the Transformers Collectors Club would be providing some instructions on how to repair the misaligned chest part that was an issue with most of the Hoist toys in the Machines Wars Termination boxed set. Jesse Wittenrich has posted the instructions with images that will guide fans on how to resolve the issue with the gap in the chest. Note: this does not resolve the shoulder problem where the joint was installed backwards. Hopefully, that is still to be announced.
How To Fix Hoist from Jesse Wittenrich ‏@RID_NightViper:

There is a small piece inside of his chest that has been placed in there backwards. Thankfully, it's a really easy fix.


To start, take out the three screws in the piece that forms the center of his back.


Then remove that piece, as well as the chest piece from which you have just unscrewed it.


See that little piece of black plastic with a spring underneath it? That is what is backwards

This little bugger here is the cause of all your problems.


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.

In other words, you want to stick the piece back into the chest with it going in this direction.


Screw it all back together and that's it! just one little piece was put in the wrong way.

The fix let's his chest swing into proper place and also give him more head clearance for transformation.
