Hi, is there a point to his detachable arms?

Good question. The logic escapes me as well.

I've been thinking the same thing since 1986. Who knows? Maybe it was an assembly thing, maybe it's there so Galvatron can rip it off and beat him up with it?

Always wondered about that too.
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

His arms detach? :shock:

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

If anyone has spare RiD Mini-Con armor pieces for Glacius and Beastbox, hit me up!

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

A mystery then.

JelZe: they do, and it's somewhat annoying. His alt. mode is pretty awesome though; I took him out of the drawer and put him on top of the satellite receiver.

I've had a look around and despite them being mentioned on his instructions, nobody seems to know. I want to know damn it! :lol:

It serves no purpose really. I came to the conclusion that it was probably a design oversight.

I HAVE G1 Cyclonus, and I had no idea his arms detatch! Guess I'll have to post this in the "things you had no idea of" thread.

A little more obvious with my Cyclonus because they kept falling off before I stuck some paper in there.

But speaking of "things I had no idea of" -- I never had this toy as a kid, a friend gave him to me years ago when he was "spring cleaning." And I always thought that he lost his fists (like 1984 'formers) it's only fairly recently that I noticed he has "built in" fists.

That's okay, it took me years to figure out that Kup had feet that could be pulled down. And I just learned recently that Swoop's arms extend.

I pulled out my Cyclonus last night just to see if I could take the arms off, but mine don't seem to be detatchable. I say seem, because I wasn't going to force it, I was just curious. I have a feeling if I did get them off, he'd develop the same problem of them falling off all the time.
