Classics Jetfire's gun - working sights? And other strangeness.

Postby Valandar » Sat Jan 27, 2007 1:03 am

Motto: "It doesn't matter if the glass is half full or half empty, only that you work to make it full."
Weapon: Particle Beam Cannon
Okay, I looked at Classics Jetfire's two part rifle, and dicovered something no other TF weapon I've noticed having: Working iron sights.

This means that when looking through the tiny hole in the rear sights, the tip of the front sight post lines up perfectly halfway up the hole, lined up with the semicircle middle sights exactly halfway up the rear sight hole. And if it was a "real" gun, it would likely be adjustable and therefore 'working' iron sights (as opposed to telescopic sights).

Any other neat oddities you've discovered?

classics megatron. of course like many of the classics, hes got pegs that can hold a minicon. however, on the opposite side of his shell, while in gunmode, he has a minicons connector so basicly, classics megatron is one giant minicon.

and mp starscream has slots on a swivle joint on his shoulders, as well as little peg holes on the sides and top of his head. they designed him to wear the crown and armor, but didnt make the crown and armor... does that count?

While not nearly a new thing, I don't think it's ever been brought up: Why does Energon Insecticon have an extra face?

G1 Scorponok's rubsign is on his crotch. :lol:

Palpatine having a smilley face on his crotch :lol:

Thunderblast's chest matrix bling-bling.

Cybertron Snarl's Jetstorm chest ornamentation.

Heinrad's beast mode features :lol:

Alternator Silverstreak's steering wheels.

The Autobot symbol on 10th aniversary Optimus Primal's surfboard. And his Beast head pressed against his butt.

Brushgard having Landquake's symbol on him.

Scrapmetal's face being a Maximal symbol.

Manterror's beast head is his robot crotch.

^ You forgot the new Beast Megatron having a missle that shoots out of his butt :lol: .

Oh yeah, Universe Nemesis Prime still has his Maximal symbol. But that just helps me think of him as being Big Convoy under Unicron's command.

It was discussed wayback, and the outcome was some designer like Tennage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Well, seeing :BOT: & :CON: on characters who are :MAX: & :PRED: always annoyed me, especially when they stamp the G1 symbols on perfectly good spark crystals. :P :-P

Plus no way Unicron could control Big Convoy. Big Convoy would wipe his mamoth ass with Unicron's severed head. :wink:

My little "fanfic story" on Big Convoy is that after the events of Beast Wars Neo(which I never saw), Big Convoy explored the Galaxy. Well, Unicron had begun to rebuild himself, and the two eventually met each other, with Unicron being fully formed. BC pulls out the Matrix. The Matrix hurt Unicron, but didn't blow him to smithereens cause Unicron had built up a resistance to the Matrix, having been defeated by it twice before(G1, Beast Wars Neo). So it was relatively easy for Unicron to defeat Big Convoy, and twist him to his dark desires.

However, the Matrix was not destroyed, it was minorly tainted, but it also keeps Big Convoy's personality in check, so his loyalty isn't complete.

That's my way of looking at it anyway.
