    Pretty much what the title says, if you have found other, non-DOTM figures where the MechTech posts fit, post 'em here!

    I have found ROTF Brawn, Generations Straxus, and HFTD Seaspray using Crankcase's claw.

    Also, don't be afraid to post pictures of your discoveries!

    Correct me if i am wrong but the mechtech weapons simply use the 5mm peg and hole which a lot of figures use for their weapons. The significant part of mechtech is the action figures not the port.

    I understand you are not trying to be offensive but i am being serious you are asking for a long list even including g1 figures. But some examples of figures that use the 5mm peg:
    Classics Seeker
    Bunch of HTFD and RTS and Generations figures really.
    I beleive g1 Perceptor uses the 5mm peg.
    The Protector armor.

    Are you serious? A huge percentage of TFs use 5mm pegs/holes. So really you have to start your list back from the diaclone years. Have fun with that.

    Yep mechtech works with the 5mm i just had classics bee holding Megatron's cannon. Looked silly but it worked. I also found the mechtech pegs dont seem to work well with the open hands like on Kup. This is just with the figures nearby.

    The 5mm peg has been used for years. Any peg that's 5mm in diameter is a MechTech peg! They are all over Energon toys and many toys have fist holes 5mm in diameter. So, feel free to experiment with your MechTech weapons! A lot of toys can use them, so play around and see what's right!

    My HA Backfire is currently mounted on WFC Optimus Prime's arm. It's a 5mm peg and can thus fit any MechTech weapon.

    Edit: Just found out that Backfire's MechTech pegs stresses the peg hole on Prime's arm. :(  No problems with the hands though.

    Nother edit: Backfire's 5mm peg fits into the hole on the top of Stratosphere's jet mode no problems. Just shift the wheels a bit. Very cool! Oh, and in robot mode, if you push Stratosphere's head down, and place Backfire's gun mode in the peg hole, you get GUN HEAD MODE!

    Any figure that has a five millimeter peg hole anywhere on his body, ie, 90% of every transformer ever made, is compatible with Mech-Tech.

    ...

    Just saying.

    Ironhide (Voyager/Deluxe), Wreckage/Bludgeon, Evac/Whirl, Brawn/Fallback, Terradive, and Seaspray/Deep Dive, and Highbrow, if you count those two. There's probably a decent chunk more as well. Pretty much most figures with an actual fist, versus whatever other appendages Movie TFs have had.
