    Months ago I bought Shockwave early, I've discovered that the button you push to have it more armed with more gun/ artillery, there is a hole that you can press the button in and it will lock and stay in more artillery mode. But I bought all the other toys yesterday and they don't lock. When I press the button it springs back to single gun mode. Is there something I'm missing on Roadbuster, Bumblebee, Megatron or the others?

    Deluxes won't lock.

    Voyagers do; in Megs' case you push the ladder, then twist it a bit and it's locked.

    Only the Voyager/Leader weapons lock.

    On Megatron you have to twist the ladder on the back of the gun when it's fully extended.

    I know deluxe figure weapons can't lock.

    As for Megatron, Turn the ladder you push in to the right i think after you push it all the way in.

    Optimus, turn the knob you push in to the left and his will lock, same with Ironhide.

    I hope that helps!

    I figured the Megatron weapon did that last night and thought it was just a flaw that rocked now good to know kit was meant to do that :)

    I decided to remove the spring from the mechanism on Megatron instead. Mine sprung back to closed too often and it upset me. So I tore into it and fixed it.

    Shockwave's mechtech gun locks in and you pull the button out again to release it.

    It's a shame the deluxes don't lock. I really don't care for the gimmick, but if I could have Roadbuster armed with his chainsaw out that would rock.
