Because of MP-11, I discovered that my MP-03G have tiny flaps that lift from over the thrusters in jet mode. I only had my MP-03 for ever...

If you swing AoE Strafe's wings up and forward, he can immitate Brimstome/Terra Shaver from Cybertron/Galaxy Force.

So the tfwiki says Evasion mode Prime has an undocumented feature. He should be able to store his weapon in robotmode, but I can't figure it out and can't seem to find a picture of it.

Anyone know how to do this?

You an fold up the hood/headlight arrangement on TFP Smokescreen/Prowl to fit under his shoulder panels. Restricts elbow articulation, but gives either one more definition.

I found that Deluxe Movie Drift has a place to store both his swords and his daggers on his rear-most panel. The daggers, obviously, plug into the holes use the hexagons on the side of the crossguard. The swords have two holes about a third of the way down the blade that match two rectangular pegs on bottom of the same panel the daggers plug into.

I bought the Reveal the Shield 2 pack with repaints of Classics Rodimus and Cyclonus.

It also came with a little metal Matrix.

I didn't think much of it, but I was playing around and found it actually fits perfectly inside the chest of G1 Optimus Prime.

Well, as said in the Toy Haul Thread before, Me and Will went to the flea market to hunt down some TFs. There was a big drill-thing :CON: from the Cybertron line. Will didn't like it so I grabbed it instead. Sure, his transformation is basically him lying down on his stomach but still, his bot mode was awesome enough. He had his cyberkey but a broken tab for his claw. I knew it was from the Giant Planet so he must have a minicon., No minicon in sight. So, I basically haggled his price down to 12$ (from 14$).

Once at the bus stop, I fiddled whit it. I randomly discovered that his chest can open like some cockpit... and there he was, the minicon in all of his glory! I laughed and cheered as if I won the lottery Jackpot! Also, the minicon was perfect!

So, at home, I checked out who this TF was. Cybertron Menasor, 100% complete, in near perfect condition! For just around 10$!

That was a find that was WAY better than expected! :KREMZEEK:

Damnit, now I really wish I hadn't lost my Evasion Mode Prime's gun. :sad:
PLEASE contact me if you have any of the following, or know where I can find them:
  • Cybertron Leader Class Optimus Prime's wings
  • Animated Rodimus Minor
  • G1 Optimus Prime's left arm, preferably with the long smokestack

Thank you.

I bought this guy on clearance specifically to see if I could figure out a way to get him into a passable Gnaw for my Classics shelf. It's not perfect but it works for me!

Honest to god, not until a few minutes ago did I realize you can rotate Fall of Cybertron Optimus Prime's smokestacks so that they face behind his vehicle mode and act as jet boosters rather than smokestacks.

I'm sure everyone and their dog figured this out already, but I didn't realize it til few minutes ago.
PLEASE contact me if you have any of the following, or know where I can find them:
  • Cybertron Leader Class Optimus Prime's wings
  • Animated Rodimus Minor
  • G1 Optimus Prime's left arm, preferably with the long smokestack

Animated voyager Starscream... His foreams have tidbits that can separate to make a EMP charger or something. The only way I discovered this is because I recently got a scrap one and I was fiddling with it to see what can detach by itself.

IIRC, the One Step Changer and Power Attacker figures are meant to ride the big one-step "Stomp and Chomp" Grimlock figure coming out in the fall, and that it'll be able to tell whether the figure riding him is Autobot or Decepticon and make different noises accordingly. If I had to guess, the toe tags are his way of telling friend from foe.

I have a Power Attacker Swoop, but no other simplified figures, so I'm not ready to do much speculating at this point... But are all the pins in the robot mode's right foot?

The Autobots all have a pin in their right foot, while Decepticons (and Lockdown) have it in their left foot.

I just realized that the "shoulder armor" parts on FE Arcee can be flipped back for a slightly more screen-accurate look! I know they're supposed to be "wings" on her back, but still, it looks nicer now.
