    I just picked up Senetinel Prime's leader class toy a few days ago. I'm assuming he's in display mode, since he only says one line of dialog right now, that being "I am Sentinel Prime". I couldn't see anything on the box or instructions that indicates how to take him out of display mode (if that's even the case. I only see one other button which makes his sirens go off.) With a lot of toys, holding the button down takes them out of display mode, or there's a switch.

    Anyone able to help out?

    I love how the siren makes him sound like he's whooping for great joy.

    Edit: It just occurred to me that, if he does have a switch, it'll likely be under the battery compartment. I'll look.

    You have to plug a mech tech weapon into the port on his right shoulder.

    I'm having the same issue. How do you make him say "Good to see you alive, Optimus." or "What has happened to the Allspark?"

    See the bit above about pluggin a mechtech weapon into his right shoulder.

    Alternatively, poke at the hole with a nail or similarly proportioned object.

    So when you put something in that hole during robot mode, he says the other lines as well?

    Yes. That's the only mode where he says those lines, as his speech button is unavailable in vehicle mode.

    Note: I believe those two speech samples are just not present on the Euro version.

    I don't know. I'll take a look at it later. I just transformed him into vehicle mode, which was getting a bit irritating and became sore on my hands. So I'll transform him back later and let you know.

    Thanks though to everyone's help.

    I took the batteries out immediately. Fixed all complaints about being slightly hard to stand. Now he's solid as a rock.

    How'd you fix the standing problem? I was disappointed to see that his heels are not level with the rest of the foot.

    Taking out the batteries makes him less back heavy. Also, the heels are down lower to help support his weight better, to push him up and forward.

    Also, if he keeps tipping back, than chances are the foot is angled too far back. Move the toes down and out of the way, click the foot forward once, move the toes back up. Doing this will almost always fix his standing problems.

    You'll still have to position his feet under his center of mass, but it's not difficult to do, nor does it look bad in the least.

    And if you didn't know the siren noise is replaced also when the mechtech is in his shoulder. People forget that one the most.

    And just for the record, there is no display mode/non display mode for these toys. Most just don't have much to say aside from a line for robot mode, and some transforming sounds and vehicle mode sounds.

    Well I got him standing, not sure if his chest pieces are in the proper placing. Are they suppose to click into something to keep them in place or no?
