Things your Transformers can do that you never realised

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.

WFC Megatron has a Decepticon face/logo on his backplate.


He also has an Autobot logo on his assplate

What, you don't see it?
How about take a second to check out the galleries, instead of reverting to sarcasm...


I don't think they were trying to mock you, the joke was on those of us who looked for the actual Autobutt logo. #-o

Looking at the WFC Megatron IN MY HAND... I don't see it. I see a vague, almost symbol - like shape, but no. He does NOT have an Autobot symbol on his butt, any more than Benjamin Franklin's face appeared in my toast this morning.

Pretty cool find from Matrix_Holder, you can remove the 'wings' from FOC Shockwave to improve the bot mode, and make variations of a gun platform for the alt mode. Original thread with pics below.

Galvatron looks great in this picture compared to the previous transformations I have seen. This looks sooo much better!

Does Galvy look taller in this picture also? I thought he was a bit smaller than that, unless its the back kibble which made him look that way?

thanks mate! ;) well if u count his back kibble then yes he does gain an extra height. but no change from head to toe..and yes the its the kibble that gives him that bulkier look. also noted, that this form enables him to pose his right arm more freely :KREMZEEK:

I came across this picture last night:

Image

I couldn't get mine to release so I had to take the whole toy apart (damned tricky) and shave off quite a bit of flash from the sides of the sliding part. Reassembling the thing was harder than taking it apart.

I always wondered why his left leg was a bit shorter and settled for not extending the right leg but now I can extend both. It gives just the tiniest bit more ankle mobility.

More than likely an old one, but up until the other day I had no idea that RTS Jazz's gun has the 3mm pegs on either side so you can attach his speakers and make some kind of sonic boom shotgun.

This is just a size class correction. When compared to ROTF voyager Long Haul, I discovered that either he's supposed to be a deluxe, Or ROTF deluxes Arcee and Battleblade Bumblebee are supposed to be voyagers. Conclusions anyone?

Long Haul is a tad stumpy at the head but...how could you say that he's the same size as a deluxe? He's gigantic!
Image

Arcee is just tall because...well...have you SEEN her robot mode? :lol: She's a mess of extending bits of robotic mess.

Battle Blades Bee is just a smidge on the tall for a deluxe.

TL;DR:
Height =/= size class.
Amount of plastic == size class.

Agreed, he is bulky. Definitely a voyager, unlike more recent offerings.

I don't have Octane (though I'd kind of like to), but I'd always assumed that it was intended to be a giant bladed weapon/scissor weapon.

I didnt really like the scissor/ hair comb weapon and i was messing about with it and found you can connect it to his arm so its like a riot shield kind of like a homage to his G1 self
