    is there any way to disable the motion-activated sounds, and keep the other electronics for devastator intact?

    Remove the Batteries? I mean, its a good idea if you don't plan on playing with the figure in a long time. display purposes etc.

    Really, its motion activated? I have never heard of this before. Why in the world would they make a cement truck motion activated? When Mixmaster is combined into Devastator the SFX and lights are activated by pushing down on the lever, which makes sense to me, but to have motion sensors for a cement truck doesn't make any sense.

    Yeah, mine was activating randomly when it was just laying about. It would even go when it was in a storage container in the closet. I finally just took the batteries out, which is something I never do w/ my figures as I rather like the lights and sounds.

    The sound is activated when the truck is titled so that the cab faces downward. In robot mode, the rear of the truck leans forward, deactivating the sound. When you press the switch, the truck tilts backward and activates the sound. Try picking up your Devastator and just leaning him backward. He'll make sounds. Likewise, if you hold the truck in vehicle mode with the cab facing the ground and shake it around, it will make no sound.

    I did a little bit of exploratory surgery to see if I can adjust this, but it would probably take some electronics know-how to change this.

    If it has motion activated features there is one trick that I know of.

    Find the motion sensor, and put a few layers of adhesive tape over the sensor. Not magic tape, the cheap cloudy stuff.

    That's normal. The 'motion-activated' sound effects on that component of the toy just have a hair-trigger.

    I want to take the batteries out of mine (I usually do) but the cyclone-mouth-vaccuum-cleaner-from-hell effect is so cool
