    I'm curious, is it possible to change the sfx in a toy's sound chip? If so, has anyone done it? I thought of this after the discovery that the Leader Animated Megatron figure (apparently) has no cannon fire sfx which made me sad

    I've heard of people putting in new sound chips, but not altering existing ones.

    you would have to burn a new chip.

    and unless you have spare chips and a chip burner...give it up.

    buy a new tf.

    Unless these sound chips use some kind of EPROM or Flash memory (which is extremely unlikely, as it would cost more per toy to do it that way) the sound data on them can't be altered.

    Like they said, probably cheaper to replace the toy than to try to fix the chip .

    while on the subject of Leader Megatron, anyone else notice the undernose landing gear and how useless it is?

    Yeah, I think it's a hold-over from a revised prototype.
