Feel free to discuss anything about any of the thousands of Transformer toys here. Anything from Generation 1 all the way to the soon to be released, the never to be released or the hope to be released is fair game! Want to show off your stuff? Please post your's and see others in the Transformers Collections Forum.
For example, I have had Energon Treadshot/Sky Shadow for 5 or 6 years now... and I never knew that the "wings" on his robot mode shoulders could rotate... And it took me over a year to realise that the Universe Micromaster Combiners kibble could combine into a vehicle.
Maybe I need to read instructions more often...

Man, I've had a bunch of these 'duh' moments... there's only one I can think of right now though. For the first 3 months, I had no idea Alternity Bumble's shin/knee parts lock in for robot mode. Makes him just a smidge taller and sturdier.
Motto:"Wait, we're supposed to save all humans? Are you sure?"

Well, that's if the instructions even bother to list all the options. I know that some recent figures have features that weren't mention at all, not to mention the unintentional ones that fans have "discovered". For instance, RoTF Mindwipe can actually combine with his drone in robot mode, despite never being designed to do so. Also I never knew about Alternators Sliverstreak's heels.
Formerly Nova-Ting Ranger (That's right, I'm back! And in Pog form!)
The wings on Energon Prowl's vehicle mode can be pulled out:
Makes his spoiler look much better.
Also, for some reason I see a lot of pic of ROTF Sideways transformed wrong(including Seib's galleries, and the Hasbro official pics). There are triangular pieces on his chest that flip up and allow you to peg his backpack behind his head.
