    Here´s a Q. Do you remove or keep the batteries?

    I'm keeping them in for now, and will replace them as needed.

    They will be removed shortly. After the initial out of the package transformation, they get old real quick.

    I will keep them in my Silverbolt. Both him and Onslaught are getting modified anyway though.

    Removed. I don’t mess around with my toys all that often. It remains displayed. Don’t batteries erode and mess up the contacts if you leave them in there unused for a long time? That’s my concern hence I remove the batteries.

    I'm torn actually. I've always hated electronic gimmicks in toys, even as a little kid...but a lot of the gimmicks in this line are really cool to me. If I could freakin' find an Onslaught anywhere*, I think I would leave the batteries in for at least a little while.

    *I can't believe it's this hard to locate him in my area...the only figures I've ever had trouble finding before were the Movie Bumblebees.

    the only one that should be/needs to be removed is powerglide/stormcloud.The button is in a very bad spot on his back which causes it to go off when they are touched.

    The rest are fine though

    Silverbolt's didn't bother me. It's not invasive. Powerglides goes off every time you LOOK at him funny, so I ripped 'em out.

    well it depends on wat u want to do, of course..if ur gonna 'play' with them or keep transforming them, u can keep them in and change them when they get old..if ur gonna display them for long periods of time without using the electronics, u should take em out..
    reminds me, i need to take the batteries out of my ultras too...i usually just display them..
    but then again, theyre just over a week old..so no worries
