Masterpiece Megatron MP-36 Trigger fires cannon!

Postby albnok » Tue Jul 04, 2017 10:48 am

Okay I really think this should merit the news, because I've not seen anyone else do it yet.



I finally got around to modifying my TakaraTomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron. He has a cannon that has a button that makes sounds. I wanted the trigger to make the sounds, too!

Image
The finished product on one side. The other side has no wire, obviously. I picked this side so that my right hand would partially hide the wire when holding it.

Image
What you need: A switch, a soldering iron and soldering paste, a screwdriver, and a lot of force to open the cannon. I couldn't figure out how to open it cleanly.

The cannon's switch is peeking out, with two legs.

Image
The other two legs on the cannon's switch, when shorted, trigger the sound. So I could just add another switch on this.

Image
This is how the switch goes back in, with my new switch's wires coming out from the slot in the front. It looks like it was meant to be easy to modify, if you could figure out how to open it properly.

Image
I didn't manage to figure out how to open it, so I melted off the parts highlighted in red so it could go back in.
