    I've seen some pretty cool pics of RiD Powerizer (Voyager) Megatron with his blade deployed all the time and not just when the button is pressed.

    How do I mod his cannon to do this? I don't want to take it apart and possibly break stuff trying to figure it out.

    Thanks in advance!!

    You just have to hold the button back in place while forcing the blades forward. It's a little finicky, but it requires no modding whatsoever.

    Was it made to do this or will it break over time by forcing it?

    It doesn't seem to be made for this, but it does not seem that it will break, either. I've adjusted it countless times already. It's a pretty loose gear. It's like adjusting DOTM Barricade's mechtech claw.

    I actually just did this to mine about an hour ago.

    Press in slightly on the button and fold each blade up. It will be about 85% of the way done, but won't completely close. Then you hold the blades still and press on the button a little harder this time. Now it will want to try and pull the blades back (which is actually making them go the other way) and the blades should form into one.

    The gears seems loose for the blade pieces to move like this, and I had no fear of it breaking on me. If this still doesn't make any sense, watch Peaugh's review on this figure, since he briefly shows how to make the blade stay out.

    6:15 mark is where the blade mod is shown.
