I found two features for TFP Soundwave
The first one is what I call 'Jetsorm' mode, because his lower half can have a hover mode like the Vehicon



The 2nd one is a pseudo leg mode. The nose cone can stand as feet, while the waist is the knee joint.
I'm sure a Radicon could find some way to make that applicable.

FWIW, you can put 3mm weapons into the barrel of FOC Prime's Rifle.

G1 Ultra Magnus left forearm connector fits Mini-cons. You can fit the Skyboom shield to his arm.

G1 Skids/Crosscuts weapons fit reasonably well on G1 Ironhide/Ratchet's arms. Skids' missile launcher on Ironhide's arm reminds me of Ironhide's pop up drill in MTMTE.

Double Targetmaster Nebulans fit in the missile slots on Seeker wings and arms. They also fit the hole in reissue Starscream's hand (the one that comes with gun Megatron). Makes you wish we got a few Targetmaster Seekers, preferably new characters like Stepper and Artfire.
I also only found out about the Magnus helmet thing in this century. With both parts being light blue, the shuttle looks much better on UM than Powered Convoy. The arm thing is no big surprise (though Mini-Cons weren't even a gleam in a toymaker's eye when I learned about this). For me, this was a neat alternate spot to mount Magnus's rifle (small robot side).

Targetmaster Jrs./Double Targetmasters fit just as easily as regular Targetmasters, but I imagine they perform much better when your plane is parked on a table (with front landing gear attached).

Here's something y'all may not know: For those of you with an Artfire OR an Inferno wearing Artfire reproduction fists and TM ladder clip, Targetmaster Jrs. look more natural on Inferno/Artfire in BOTH modes.
(My reissue Inferno is currently a Targetmaster using repro Artfire parts (fists & ladder clip) and Silencer (Landfill's yellow TM) repainted in black, chartreuse, and metallic white. I decided to name the Targetmaster "Tommy Kennedy", with the premise that the preteen who palled around with Powermaster Optimus Prime grew up to be an Autobot City firefighter.)

Here's another: The RiD Build Team (Wegde/Build Boy, Build Cyclone/Hightower, etc.) use fist holes compatible with 1984 "Bloated Fist" Optimus Prime, meaning he can wield their guns and vice versa. (Watching Prime hold Build Cyclone's tiny pistol is funny.)
RiD's Team Bullet Train/Shinkansen have fist holes compatible with G1 Rodimus Prime's rifle. Due to the size of their fists, some of the trains have an easier time carrying it than others. (I've only tried this with Rapid Run and J-7.)

The blue paint on Dr. Wu's Prime blasters glows in the dark. Hard to get a good photo, but with a little photoshopping, you can barely make it out.



They glow a shade of blue I've never really seen glow before. It's not nearly as underwhelming in real life, in fact it pushes them to fill their price tag nicely, in my opinion.
