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.

Type 2 is more of a standard/x-wing configuration. I really like this one. The engine placement isn't quite as nice, but overall it looks better. I suppose they could function as boosters out there or something:

Hope you guys like it! :D


I do. The original design leaves a lot to be desired. It's...odd.

Those look pretty sweet dude. I kinda like how the gun placement looks like it comes up from beneath the ship.

You don't like the original mode?? I love it! Its got that sweet space roadster baddassery going on, like theres a windshield for a flying rocket hover ship of pure awesomeness. I can easily say that it's the best form of Shockwave I've seen (in regards to the CGI model and overall concept). Hate on that all you want. 8)

Thanks! I personally love ALL of Shockwave's modes. :D He's just so fun to mess around with and create new ones.

Agreed! I still don't understand the hate. He's a gunship. He's a flying gun, what more do you WANT people!? xD

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....?
:BLUSH: :BLUSH: :BLUSH: :BLUSH: :BLUSH:
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.

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.
