I apologize for the wall of text, but I have a couple interesting things. One of them I recently discovered and the other I figured out a long time ago, but I thought would be interesting to mention.

First, I recently found out (thanks to fellow siebertronian Emerje) that Titanium Series Optimus Prime's shoulders can actually lock into his torso. I had never figured that out in 13 years. His right arm used to kinda lock in place, but it was loose and mostly just sat flush with his torso. The left arm wouldn't sit flush, so I thought it was defective; turns out I just needed to push it in a bit harder. I now figure his right arm was probably the defective one, and it's now too loose to stay in place anyway, but now I can pose his left arm! :DANCE:

The second thing is something I discovered a long time ago and has probably been mentioned before (either in this thread or another), and it's that DotM Sideswipe seems to have the remnants of a stealth force mode. He has tabs on the insides of his forearms and slots on the underside of his bumper that fit perfectly together, but serve no other purpose. He likely had a stealth force mode planned, but was abandoned at some point in development, with these tabs being vestigial parts. Again, this has probably been found before, but I think it's interesting.

You can actually come up with some pretty cool stealth force mode possibilities just by rearranging the rest of his car panels and adding a bunch of guns.

Not really what a transformer can do and more like something that has gone unnoticed until now:

You all know RiD 2001 Heavy Load aka CR Build Typhoon? If anyone has him, could you please post a pic of the back of his cabin piece? I'm asking because his Universe Constructicon Long Haul redeco may have a tooling change there to deepen the screw hole.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos and Crashbash (just heads)
- PotP Punch head
- CW Dead End, Brawl, Swindle, Vortex, among others
- Spare PotP Volcanicus hands

A long, long time ago, I bought 2008 Movie Dropkick, and always thought he had long, floppy arms. When college started, I got it back out, and I realized that the arms compressed to give him more human proportions. As was mentioned, instructions are good.

I have discovered that Titans Return Overlord can use the MegaChild as a breastplate:

Having learned about this (via looking up "Overlord Tera" out of curiosity), the change in the way the MegaChild detaches on him finally make sense.

Another discovery with Overlord!

You can slip the gun over the landing legs on the Megajet, giving a rough equivalent to the original toy's fold-out gun

This might not count, but Legends Dai Atlas's bottom half makes a fun... scooter? for battle/micromasters.
