    On nearly every AOE toy I have, there is a hexagonal hole near the crotch of the robot mode. Does anyone know what purpose it serves?

    I swear to god this is the third time this thread has been posted by someone in the past few weeks.

    The holes are compatible with Bandai display bases of various types, tried and true. Hasbro appears to have decided to add this little feature for their 'collector-oriented' line, since collectors do like to display their toys in various ways, often with stands of different sorts.

    I just like that it makes getting Strafe in flight poses easier.

    No having to use the clamp or gripping part of the stand.

    I do not think the purpose for the hexagonal hole has been shared.
