Things your Transformers can do that you never realised

I always figured he was a homage to BW Sky Shadow but Cybershark seems to be a pretty good fit as well.

- his shoulder mounted legs are now easier to fold out of view, increasing his G1-esque silhouette.

This renders his chain obsolete but I didn't use it much anyway.

I keep them connected to the sickles on the legs, and just have the chain draped over the middle horn between them, hanging fairly symmetrically on each side. I like seeing the hanging chains, makes him look all badass and metal :twisted:

Agreed on this. Also, my RiD Arcee gun went missing weeks ago. I wonder were it could be?

Also, if your feeling creative, transform RiD Ratchet into ambulance mode, ans stick RiD Bumblebee's guns on the roof. Its convincing as both weaponry, and maybe a part of the vehicle itself.

Way too lazy to take a pic now, but if you have Maketoys Giant, and FOC Shockwave, you can attach Shockwave onto Devastator's arm like an arm cannon.

From vehicle mode, take the thigh panels and flip them down to the feet side, take the arms out from their thruster configuration and attach them to the handles on each side of Devastator's forearm. Make sure Giant's hand is deployed so it can allow Shockwave to rest stabily on it. I flipped the wings backwards too. Makes for one BFG with pointy claws on the end (Shockwave's feet). Also, this is with the chest part of shockwave facing upwards, like a sight for the gun.

Posted this earlier on in the forum and in a couple of others, if you flip the top section back there's a nice little "seat" to put Kreo Shockwave in, or any other Kreo's for that matter.

Amazing how FOC Shockwave seems to be as versatile as RID Galvatron. So far I've seen mounted, stand-alone, flying, and walker weaponry.

Energon spears still amaze me.

RTS and Generations Legends Prime can wield these bad boys while the GDO and Takara versions use the smaller hand pegs (same as the Cyberverse standard for weaponry).

You can also make a neat sword using the Prime Cyberverse weapons

This isn't really something the toy can do per se, but I just realized G1 Motormaster's vehicle mode is in great scale with Legends/Cyberverse Optimus Primes. He's in great scale with my DotM Cyberverse Optimus w/trailer. They can do a great "King of the road" head on collision.

Likewise, Motormaster's cab is pretty much the exact same size as Reveal the Shield Legends G1 Prime (recently repainted as Motorbreath). If that Prime had a trailer they would look perfect together.

Just picked up TFP Weaponizer Optimus Prime. Cool discovery: DOTM Laserbeak's double-cannon plugs into the 2 ports above this Prime's rear wheels. Both pegs on Beak's combined weapon line up with both ports perfectly, it's a great look.

Ever wondered why PCC Bombshock et all never seemed so flush in vehicle mode? I know I did. I just found out he has a sliding waist, front to back. With that, all the wheels are now level. Be sure to switch the legs around so the panels pop in properly too ;)

okay, probably been mentioned before, but didn't notice it myself til now, but TF Prime RID Voyager Optimus Prime has a sword, and that sword is modelled on the Star Saber from the show.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
