    Specifically, the hole on the bottom of cybertron Soundwave's jet mode, right on the cover that his shoulder nests in.

    The gun handles can plug into it, but they don't make a tight enough fit to stay put.

    It doesn't seem to have a purpose at all....

    Yeah, I was wondering about that myself and for the life of me I can't figure it out. The closest I could come was that laserbeak could hook to it, but it's the same problem as the guns: too loose.

    Something else I've noticed about that hole...the assembly it's in and the way Soundwave is all concave underneath...it almost looks like he's designed to plug into a bigger figure or something - think G1 the Dreadwind - Darkwing? combo.

    Is there any other Planet X guys besides him and Sideways coming out? There are no giant ones, as far as I know. If there was, I'd bet he could plug into it somehow.

    well, soundwave and noisemaze were the only Planet-X characters on the shows, and GF toyline didn't have anyone else either. maybe since SW was the first toy for the line that they designed, they originally had planned for him to link-up with someone else and then canned the idea.

    What if the Cybertron Unicron figure has a third mode and can connect to Soundwave? :)

    Maybe a vestigial trace of an aborted idea, like the wheels on BW TM2 Tigerhawk or Blackarachnia.
