- Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
For anyone who has Maketoys Giant, or is interested, not everyone knows the following gimmicks:
1.) The pistons that come with Dump Truck/Longhaul can attach to the forearm/generator pieces that come with Bulldozer/Bonecrusher and Excavator/Scrapper to form jackhammers. (There are handles on either side, allowing the figures to use them as such.) These silver pistons can also be reversed to show their screwdriver tips, and can be used as weapons in Giant/Devastator mode.
2.) The chest shield, which doubles as an exhaust for Dump Truck/Long Haul is also a hand held shield for the bots to use.
3.) Both Scavenger and Mixmaster have extending ankle joints. There's a gray button beneath the silver piston on Scavenger, and two on the sides of Mixmaster's waist, that when pressed, allow the ankle to extend. (This is not listed in the instructions. On some Mixmasters in the sets, there's flash from the mold that must be cut away for this gimmick to work.)
Most of this stuff isn't listed in the instructions. Some are shown in fan pics and one or two promotional pics, but most don't know about these features and Maketoys doesn't go out of it's way to report such things.
Neat gimmicks that further sell the set.
EDIT: One more...
TW-01 Hegemon (Megatron)...his scope sits on a panel that swings to the side of his arm for transformation, it's also shown like this in the instruction manual. However, on the bottom of the scope, there's two slots that seemingly have no purpose, but they do... There's two tabs on the top of his forearm and the scope can rest there. It makes the figure look show accurate (as that's where the placement of Megatron's cannon was), but it strips away arm articulation to achieve this. Still, a really, really neat feature, if a bit parts formy.
