Things your Transformers can do that you never realised

For those of you who own green or yellow maketoys giant, I found a way to make Long Haul more stable in robot mode.

Take the piledriver attachments and insert the 5 mm handles on each of them into the outside of each foot, as there are open gaps in the feet that fit the pegs. With the pile drivers pointing backwards, this gives Long Haul additional foot support, and keeps him from falling back if you want to get a leaning back pose. The piledrivers are kind of big, but not nearly a big deal considering the overall look of the figure. Hope that makes sense.

Hmm. That looks like it might work. I'll give it a shot in a bit.

Don't have a pic right now, but there looks to be a little seat/cockpit inside of FoC Shockwave's arm Cannon. It's right in the opening that connects directly to his arm.

I have only recently discovered the sweetness that can be Power Core Combiners.

Owning a couple of the single Commanders which come with their little 'targetmaster' style buddies which are all very nice!

I have seen the Combiner sets with their drones which are all a bit derpy, so I never bothered to pick any up.
I assumed plugging the drones in and attatching the head/helmet and weapons made for a whole load of parts-forming?

Attatching the head/helmet....?

Why did no one tell me that when in the combined mode, the Commanders head/helmet is actually built in to the Commanders chest/body!!!!!!

There are a couple of exceptions though:

- Sledge's head does double duty. In torso mode, you cover up the regular face then turn the head around.
- Skyhammer has no second combiner head, instead he dons a pilot's helmet complete with goggles.

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha

Vehicle mode size doesn't mean diddly. Two identically sized vehicles can have considerably different sized robot modes, and vice versa. Pretty much the guiding factors are mass, number of moving parts, and number of attachment parts (screws, pins, etc).

Doubtful, since classics starscream is both completely hollow and the wings are at least half as thin as Dreadwing's.

I know that. Dreadwing is thicker and also in robot mode, he is much taller than Starscream. It's just........ when I compare the two, it made me giggle a little bit (and shake head). Oh, I don't even want to compare him with classics Jetfire.

Banjo-Tron wrote:LOL, I'd wager Starscream is heavier as well.

I actually did that, not by measurement machine though but my hands. They felt about the same. Guess I will do the real measurement tonight just for curiosity. Even classics deluxe Bumblebee feels heavy now.

PRiD Ultra Magnus has 4 fake wheels. I noticed the ones in his feet out of the box, but he also has 2 more behind his head, and fake doors and windows on his chest. It begs the question why? He hasnt been in the show yet, accept for when his picture popped up, and the rage of the dinobots version is similar to that, he's cybertronion, thus different from the toy in that regard, so did they base the toy off of concept art? Or an un used CG model? If so, why add in the 'fake' bits to make him seem more accurate? Hes got no reason to be accurate, unless he pops up in season 3.

Hi everyone,
I love Seibertron.com, (thank you Ryan) and I love the forums, especially this one. Thank you to everyone reading and posting. I’ve been reading for years, but this is my first post.

I really like what kirbenvost did with FOC Generations Shockwave: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=67369&p=1441665&hilit=shockwave#p1441665
I too like to transform a repainted transformer into a slightly different look than the original, when possible. So when I was looking for an alt mode for FOC Air Raid I transformed him into this:

[img]
2012-12-28%20216.jpg
[/img]

[img]
2012-12-28%20212.jpg
[/img]



The wings and legs meet up perfectly. It looks like he was designed this way. It is like a triple changer, or maybe the designers decided to create a robot that can transform into two distinctly different vehicle modes. They sell one as Shockwave and one as Swoop. But later they decided against it and just went with Fireflight, then Airraid. It isn’t a perfect swoop, but it is very reminiscent of him, or very Cybertronian. Remember all of the Cybertronian versions are unique but similar to their G1 forms. And his colors are red, gold, and gray.

Why don’t they promote things like this? Does it cost two much? Is it an early idea that they don’t care about later and don’t bother mentioning. Is it a fun and secret Easter Egg? Is it obvious?

He looks like Cybertronian Swoop, or Terranotron, or universe Skydive.

I also really like what STINGRAY749, things-your-transformers-can-do-that-you-never-realised-t67369s1530.php, found.

What do you guys think?

Are there others that could be Cybertronian Dinobots? Whether designed that way or not?
