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.

I honestly love the buckler/arm guard gimmick, especially with the 5mm peg holes, it means customization is virtually limitless.

I think I may have discovered what storyline that weird Year Of The Goat ~ Platinum Edition: G2 Optimus Prime toy is based on.

In the old Dreamwave Armada-Energon Comic: Issue 17, there is an image where Optimus Prime is suddenly reformatted / upgraded by receiving the Matrix. During this process, Optimus displays exactly the same colours as his YOTG toy (ie: Transparent, Silver & Bronze w/ Yellow eyes). Obviously, I cannot be 100% for certain. But, the similarities are numerous. What do you think?

@tdroom; Nice find!!
That is just as, if not more so, plausible than any other theory i have heard before.
Good call!

Thanks, triKlops. Glad to have finally figured out where this figure can potentially fit within the multiverse. :)

Storage. Victorion's do the same thing, and the official storage spot is on Pyra Magna's ladder base.

I was hoping it was more than that, but half thought it might be as I played with scattershot a bit more. Thanks for the quick reply.:)

Everybody knows Grimlock is the torso of Volcanicus...

And I saw one pic online where they left the T-Rex head facing forward instead which looked pretty badass...

But if you open the mouth, which looks marginally more badass...

You find a slot to stick a Prime Master in the chest, in the freaking T-Rex Jaws.
