KFC Citizen Stack has a fairly easy transformation, but there’s a few things that could use some clarification. Some of the slider joints can also be very stiff, and while that’s much better than them being loose, they can be frustrating to use unless you know a few methods to make it easy.
And that’s where How Do I Transformer? comes in! It’s a feature here on MattBooker.info that shows things the instructions don’t! And probably a few things the instructions do show, but I felt like showing anyway. Some of it might be obvious, but you’re here so you might as well take a look for the stuff that’s not.
STIFF LEG SLIDERS
That sounds like an awesome name for a baseball team. One of those local ones, like The Cavemen or The Mighty Boosh.
As for KFC Citizen Stack, the leg sliders can be a bit stiff. Most people that I’ve seen transforming it will just yank on the leg to pull it out, or give the leg a hard push to slide it back in. This works, but it causes people to make hilarious grunts, or feel like they might break something.
It does put a lot of stress on the hip joint when you do that.
So don’t do it!
Here’s an easy way to get the legs to slide into position for alt mode.
Put your fingers on the red section of the lower leg and put your thumb on the top of the white thigh, then push your thumb toward your fingers. Make sure the knee is properly aligned and it should go in much easier than if you were just shoving it in from the leg and the hip.
But how do you get the leg back out?
Put your fingers on the top of the red section of the lower leg and push the leg up through it with your thumb. Just like before, this is much easier than just grabbing the whole leg and trying to yank it back into position.
STIFF SHOULDER PYLONS
We can use the same methods used on the legs to help make the transformation of the arms easier.
Once you’ve got it pushed down about half way, remember to stop and pull out the top of the pylon to extend it for alt mode. From there you can use both hands to easily pull the arm down the rest of the way.
This method allows you to be careful during the entire process.
I CAN’T STAND CITIZEN STACK!
Then just order the MP version.
Oh! Let’s try that title again.
CITIZEN STACK CAN’T STAND!
That’s better. Except for the not standing part. But really, this isn’t so much of a problem that I’ve heard about as something that I came across while posing KFC Citizen Stack. Sometimes it seemed to be more stable at standing up, while other times it wanted to lean back and fall over.
Stack’s feet have a toe part and a heel part, and while it’s obvious to adjust the toe, the heel is a lot more out of the way. Once the heels are adjusted Stack is a lot more stable, but how to get to them?
The solution to this is actually really easy. The design has the heel exposed from the top, so you can just push down on it to make it level on the surface Citizen Stack is standing on.
THE BACK OF THE WAIST PIECE SCRAPES THE GROUND.
Nope! It just needs folded in all the way.
That also locks the waist rotation in position, helping to secure the alt mode.
WHAT IS THE CORRECT POSITION FOR THE SLIDER TABS ON THE ARMS?
This is one I see a lot. Most people just slide them around until they fit, and that can be frustrating.
It’s much quicker and easier to use the weapon storage to find the right position!
The weapon stores by sliding onto the inside sections of the slider clips, and the weapon is only meant to store one way. Just put the stock of the blaster up against the blue sections of the shoulders and then align the clips with the slots on the blaster. It’s that easy!
IS THERE AN EASIER WAY TO FIND THE SLOTS FOR THE TABS ON THE SLIDERS?
Now that those sliders are in position with the rifle, you still have to get the part they tab into lined up. Since it’s hard to see the slot and the tab, and because the rest of the alt mode can move around a lot until it’s locked in place, that can be frustrating.
But there’s an easy way to do it!
Just align the corners! If you do that, the slot and the tab should be very easy to get in the correct position, and you can use that same area as places to put your finger and thumb when pushing securely together.
HOW IS THE WAIST PIECE SUPPOSED TO SIT IN ALT MODE?
The best thing to do for aligning the waist piece (which is where the trailer hitch is) in alt mode is just to do it last.
Once you have everything else tabbed in, the waist piece mostly aligns itself. If it’s not, move it around a bit until it looks like in this picture.
It should be on a slight angle from underneath, and the rest of it should be aligned from the side so that it’s mostly straight. Look at how the red section of the lower leg is aligned with the blue section of the lower leg.
There’s not a whole lot of room to adjust it once it’s locked in, but if you have followed the tips in this guide then you should have just enough room to do it.
