Confession Time

Motto: "A man who wants nothing is invincible."
I stumbled upon something the other day watching a toy review of a figure I have ridiculous amount of exposure to, and that I'd been doing something wrong.

Have you found yourself mis-transforming an easy/famous figure? Completely off the mark on something fiction-wise? Mistakes so scandalous you hoped to take it to your grave?

Well now you don't have to thanks to this thread! Unburden yourself here!

The thing that inspired this, is that someone was talking about an MP-10 KO Youtube review. During the transformation... I saw a step that I had never seen or done before....

There's a little flap that comes down from his forearm to fill a gap in truck mode. I didn't even know it existed and always thought that gap in truck mode was odd :lol: :lol: :lol: :oops: :oops: :oops:

If any of you know me, this is an embarrassing oversight. I was asked just the other day how many MP-10's I had. 11 and 1 KO. Oy vey :lol:

Way back when Animated started, I bought Voyager Optimus, and for the longest time I never extended his legs whenever I transformed him from truck to robot. It was always odd to me how short he was, almost the same height as the deluxe Prime figure. I only realized my mistake after BotCon 2011, when I took out Animated Motormaster, who is the same mold, from the BotCon box and transformed him to robot, following the instructions in case his transformation was different from Prime. It was a BotCon figure after all, I didn't want to damage it by mistransforming him.

Weapon: Battle Blades
I never looked through Cybertron Defense Hot Shot's instructions, and never really paid much attention to photos of it. A couple years back I got the Takara version and browsed the instructions for fun. This is when I learned the arms can extend.

A decade of pointlessly stumpy arms on three figures, fixed in one quick browse of a manual :HEADHURTS:
