    I've finally managed to purchase the animated voyager class blitzwing figure and I've noticed something that no one else has even bothered to mention, and it's starting to bug me that I can't figure it out!!! Does ANYONE know what the buttons on blitzwing's arms in robot mode are for?!?!?!?:banghead: :confused: :redface2:

    decoration. they make his arms thicker, and they go inwards so he can transform.

    From what I understand and have looked at for the transformation on my own, they were designed to keep the wings in an upward profile when in the jet mode so that the nosecone of the jet looked more in line. The only problem is that they gimped the tabs for the rear that flip up from the tailfins so that's the part that was goofed up from the original design. Plus, when in tank mode, those same arm pieces would have not allowed the tank cannons to lock into the tab, so they made it possible for them to collapse into the arms.

    Actually, I thought it was pretty ingenious for them to try that on a Voyager figure.

    they are just there now to make his arms look thicker in robot mode. there is no other reason.
