    Did you even read what he wrote? I have a feeling not, considering this post you made. :banghead:

    There's an additional click to them. As is, coming from vehicle mode, they work fine, but you can push the thighs forward one click to fill in the leg.

    Now I am going to have to look at mine and see if I did that or not.

    Thanks for the info.

    I had G1 Scorponok for 18 years before I realised there's a panel on Lord Zarak's back to cover the Scorponok face when Zarak is in robot mode.

    It's not mentioned on the instructions.

    I only had Scorponok and Snapdragon growing up and Snapdragon's mouthplate just turned 90° giving his robot face a kind of duck bill. I suppose it was to hide the face when Krunk was in bot or dragon head mode but it wasn't very effective.

    Ah, I never had the Horrorcons as a kid so I didn't know how they handled that. But I had Mindwipe and a buddy had Chromedome as kids, and they both had those flaps.

    The flap/faceplate forms a horn for dragon/dinosaur mode.

    I wouldn't have called it a horn. I thought it was more the crown/top of the head.

    Studio series bee has a square cut out in the front of the hood piece that tabs onto a grey piece in he back of his chest in bot mode. Helps keep the loose flopiness at bay and makes bee pretty solid

    Sooooo, forgive me if this has been posted before, but I found this out on the Reprolabels Facebook page. Not my pics/discovery, but I don't want to put the name of the person since it's a closed group, so I don't want credit.

    You can fit Titan masters in the original Classics Cyclonus.

    I think it has been posted before, but it's worth reposting. I much prefer the Voyager Class, but it's nice to see newer toys work with older ones.

    I'm going to post this in the sunstreaker thread, but I wanted to share this here first...

    The flame accessories that come with Masterpiece Ironhide (for the jetpack)
    Fit into the holes in MP Sunstreakers backpack!
