    The "Hidden Features" thread gets (somewhat rightfully) ticked when people post things that are in the instructions (although let's be honest, they're awful sometimes) or are otherwise "obvious". So let's move those kinds of posts to here and leave the "Hidden" thread for it's "true" purpose of hidden meanings behind numbers or symbols or other undocumented features and the like.

    Most of the MPs can be height adjusted to make them taller or shorter to home in on cartoon scale if you're into that.

    It might be in the Takara instructions. I feel like I remember seeing it.

    My submission, since I didn't know for a long time: the heel spurs on AoE Galvatron can move all the way back, making him have flat feet. For a long time, I thought they stopped right before, giving him arched feet.

    Figures from Wave 5 of Titans Return apparently have a feature in becoming a myth. Does this count?

    Great idea except people won't stop posting the inane shit in the other thread. Probably better to leave that one to 5mm port nonsense and just have it's title changed "Stuff I Just Noticed About A Figure" and make this the hidden features thread.

    Or don't. People are gonna do what they want.

    It's not really documented but I personally like the way TR Broadside can shoulder-mount weapons Soundwave Style.

    Yeah. I like that 5mm weapons fit into 5mm ports. It's amazing how many times that it isn't in the instructions.

    I had G1 Scorponok 18 years before I noticed the panel on Lord Zarak's back to cover Scorponok's face.

    G1 Ultra Magnus has a connector on his arm that can be attached to Armada Minicons.
