    I recently got a Gravity Bots Bolt BB, and this "T"-shaped plastic part was taped inside the package. The instructions make no mention of this part, anyone know what it's for?

    That's a shipping bolt that keeps the toy from changing in shipping. You should see a hole of the same size somewhere on the bottom of the car. Not sure why it was taped to the package it should have been inserted into the figure.

    Thanks for the info, the long end was inserted to the hole in the figure, but the other end was taped to the back plastic bubble which has a hole for it, just like for the twisties. :)

    Ah, so it removes automatically. It's been too long since I got my last gravity bot I didn't remember that part, but it makes sense.

    It just plugs a hole and isn't needed after unpacking? I'd have thought Hasbro would've used a small cardboard tube instead of plastic for more environmentally friendly reasons.

    I tought it was like a key to be used in case the figure does not transform properly... :)
