What's the official storage for Bulldozer and Excavators' weapons in vehicle mode? I currently have them pegged onto their sides, but it doesn't seem quite right. I figured out every one else's (Dump Truck's is AWESOME), but the instruction book doesn't really go though weapon storage and I had to guess from pictures.

No prob. I can't remember if that tidbit was in the instructions (yellow's the prototype) or on a photo blog...
Also, Devastator's chest shield/Long Haul's exhaust pipes, also doubles as a handheld shield. Long Laul can't hold it, unfortunately. Mixmaster and the others can.
His rifle, the shield, the rocket packs and his visor? AWESOME looking robot of death.
Also, on Scrapper and Mixmaster, there's buttons. Those will extend their vehicle modes for Devastator. Gives the ankles a bit more range. (Makes him taller, too, of course.)
Mixmaster's are on the sides near the front of his drum. Scrapper's is singular and it's just below the silver piston. (Look closely, can't miss it.)

LOL. BTW was going to ask you, no reviews in September. WTF man? Have you run out of stuff to review or is that thing called 'real life' getting in the way
Personally, I'm really itching to review Giant, but will try to stay patient

It's sort of a shame this will forever be compared with Hercules. I don't have Herc, so I can't compare the two. But I think that in an alternate reality in which Hercules had never come out, fandom would have collectively fallen over itself to heap praise on MakeToys and declare it the new undisputed king of the 3rd party toymakers. I think this really sets a new standard.
