He is mostly g1 toys at the moment but he has been attaching these little guys onto various places on the g1 toys. Sort of surprised they could do that
Haha, they've been using 5mm ports forever. Now, there are a few lines which they got away from them for some reason of which I fail to understand (notably BW/BM/RiD) and they were never really standard on EVERYTHING until Armada, but many, many G1 molds use 5mm ports, especially the later ones and anything that's a targetmaster has 5mm hands by necessity.
There are a few rather hilarious anomalies though. One of my favorites to point out is BW K-9. His shield attaches to his back via a 5mm peg. Not just ANY 5mm peg though, a HOLLOW one! You can give him a mini-con if you so choose.
And as you might suspect, it all started with Diaclone, G1 Prime has 5mm hands.
Another anomaly that to this day annoys the hell out of me is 07 Deluxe Jazz and even HA Jazz! NEITHER of them use 5mm ports for their weapons. In the case of the 07 deluxe, I think I can understand, as it's a bit cramped inside of his arm where the peghole is. But HA Jazz makes no sense to me. :\ At first, when I realized HA Jazz's gun had a smaller-than-5mm-peg, I suspected that it was tooled to be able to use the 07 Deluxe's weapons...nope. Both sets of pegs/ports are different sizes, and neither are 5mm.
