    I do believe that the gimmick was disabled on every release of the toy after skyquake. Basically there is a little slide on each of the small jets that shows different autobots being attacked. The slide is viewed by attaching the little jet to skyquake and looking through the scope. It is not exciting at all

    On Skyquake's mold, in all revisions, I believe the gimmick should work. The disabling happened on the mold used for Machine Wars Soundwave, who did not have the mirrored panel. However, the necessary mirrored panel was restored in the Universe release of the mold.

    I believe the panels, parts, etc. are all there on all versions of Skyquake, but the 'mirrored' part is lacking and some clear translucent parts are darker colored translucents... so connecting should work, but the effect of some of the sighting features isn't like it is with Skyquake.

    yeah I got the green guy Talon and he's cool as G2 toys go. Theirs not much to them flip over the nose cone and pull down the legs and he's in robot mode. I don't have Sky Quake so I cant tell you about the gimmick but on his panel theirs a picture of thunder clash showing his weak spot so I guess thats what you see when you put them together

    When I used to own him, I know King Atlas had some sort of mirror in there. I remember messing around with him and looking at it at the right angle so I could spy the ground and "bombing targets" underneath him as he "flew" around my room.

    That figure's articulation was atrocious, but man, it still had entertainment value! If short-lived, anyway.
