    Hey all, I love Transformers(just like most of you guys and gals)and I want to love them even more with unknown features.

    The only ones that commons to mind is that HA Sideswipe's doors can extend and collapse and that the backs of ROTF primes legs pop out.

    Now, POST YOUR'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well... the only thing that came to mind was P/CP and how annoying it is to get Punch standing.


    CP mode is easy.. since its the correct way to position the legs

    Punch mode... you have to position the feet weird
    [​IMG]

    So, I just flip the feet or as something else suggested, put them away

    Its not the best but it allows you to position the legs normally.

    Leader Prime. The blue panels on the backs of his lower legs pop out to give his legs more shape.

    Supposedly, on Battle Ops Bee, there's a button and after several presses it will play the original TF theme, you have to press it more times to get more verses.

    Not sure if it's even all that new or hidden but when I got Jetblade I found out the launcher triggers can slot into the holes on his shoulders, kinda helps change him up a bit display wise from Dirge. When the're mounted like that ya can just flick the back down to fire them.

    [​IMG]

    Would post the Classics Prime & Jetfire combo but everyone already knows that one at this point.

    *Edit

    (Post below me) OMFG Deceptigtar that's...how did?! I just tried that and it completely blew my mind. I guess it just goes to show how seemless the Animated toys really are, I always thought that was just line detailing for the pop-out panels. o_O

    love how that jetblade looks.

    one i know of now are the extra designs for the null rays on all the animated seekers. slide the missile launcher forward and panels pop out. a lot of ppl missed that one of the bat since it is not mentioned in the instructions. i think.

    Mindwipe has hidden ankle articulation. They move inwards a bit to help him keep stable in some poses.

    This thread could be used to document all the 3mm clips that can be used for interchangeable weapons. The figures I know that have clips somewhere are:
    Recon Ironhide
    Brawn
    Breakdown
    Skystalker
    Seaspray
    Scattorshot(they can clip on his gun barrels)
    Darkmount/Straxus

    And I'm sure I missed a few.

    WFC Prime's knee flaps flip up.
    HA Sideswipe has two horn/hook lookin things that flip out on his side under his chest to fill in the gap.
    HA Bumblebee's front tires rotate back under his arms in bot mode (if you pull his arms out and up all the way) to give his arms more clearance.
    The megablock's Halo figures and Iron Man figures are human alliance figure size and also clip onto Brawn/Recon Ironhide/Seaspray/ and any other figure with these bars by their hands. I have War Machine paired up with Recon Ironhide and Iron Man paired up with Optimus Prime

    This has been mentioned in other places, but Cybertron Wing Saber in backpack configuration can be mounted on Cybertron Optimus Prime's regular Super Mode backpack. This gives Prime the power from Sonic Wing Mode without losing his big guns. Also, in this mode he can combine with anybody using the Leobreaker mold as well as with Wing Saber. The best part is that his balance is good here.

    Additionally, the arm-mode plug on the Leobreaker mold is identical to the plugs used by Tidal Wive's arms. This means that Cybertron Optimus and Megatron/Galvatron are capable of using Tidal Wave's arms, and that Tidal Wave can wear one or two of the lions in arm mode instead of his regular arms.

    For his transformation. They flip down in robot mode and flip up for Vehicle mode to give him tail lights.

    But decreases accuracy.

    Yeah, it is less accurate, but I too recently started displaying him like this just to give his arms support. At least on my figure his shoulder joints are very loose now days and like to just flop back in. So I fold the wheels back in to hold the shoulders in place.
    On topic- I recently discovered that the backs of deluxe Brawl's legs can angle in, pulling the treads away from his legs slighty. Don't know how I missed that one for so long.
