RTS perceptor's legs can extend. I think I had him a year and only figured that out by accident.
RotF Leader Optimus Prime. The blue panels on the back of his lower legs can properly extend outwards and snap into place. I knew they could wiggle a bit, but not extend. Took 11 years! And it's a figure I have spent a considerable amount of time with.
Woah what, I need to go fix mine
Barricade, I think 8 years, the horns on the feet weren't listed in the instructions and I was a small child back then and didn't realize, glad though that I found out about it.
Literally, just last week, I realized TR Brawn/Outback both have heel spurs that flip out. That was such a game changer for me, I spent all weekend trying out new poses for them.
ss14 ironhide, i never knew the wheels from the feet can conect to make him more stable
The thing is, I find that he looks better with the chest flat, the "official" transformation looks wrong and misaligned.
And for this thread, a few months with Siege Prime for the small knee fold-out parts that provides an extra 5mm port... didn't see it at all until I saw an image with the gun holding up in it and it puzzled me.
This was a post I made 3 years on cybertron.ca
I got ss megatron in march, and took me until june to find out his shoulders moved.
I displayed my Powerglide the wrong way round for about 10 years. Only noticed because my eHobby repaint is stood the correct way round.
Well, unless there's a figure still mistransformed that I don't know about, but else BW Optimus Optimus (and by extension, BM Primal Prime).
Got OpOp in 2000. I can still remember that for work I was staying in a hotel, my roommate snored incredibly loud and the bell tower chimed every 15 minutes, and since I couldn't sleep my mind wandered and I realised I was thinking about OpOp, so I bought him when I got back home in the weekend.
Then in 2007 or 2008 I was making an Optimal Magnus from a Primal Prime (with parts from a second OpOp). It was then that I discovered that you could and even had to rotate the round shoulder pieces for robotmode. I never had done this, always thinking it was a dumb design that these pieces were so low and the cannon fully exposed.
Until I started coming here in 2013, I didnt know that Classics voyager Optimus Prime's smokestack gun had additional pieces inside both halves that can flip out to make it a little bigger.
Had RTS Wreck Gar for around 3 years before I realized you need to turn his right foot so they can be symmetrical. It might not be in the directions. I still see people mistransforming it today.
This is the wrong way.
Holy crap! I just realized mine was wrong too!
After 3 years, I just realized that the Titan Master cockpit thing that comes with Titans Returns Fortress Maximus is also gun for Cerebros, lol.
Took me buying all 3 Classics/Universe Fairlady's and all 3 Henkei releases before I found that the feet extended out, making better use of the tilt.
Guessing it was almost 5 years before realizing that with a little force, LioConvoy's shoulders snap securely into place.
It took me literal YEARS to realize that the tailfin on the back of Fall of Cybertron Starscream can be removed.
Doing so will reveal two pegholes very close together.
Ever wonder why, when combined, the twin chainguns have two tiny pegs right next to each other for no reason? That's why. It's for back storage of the guns in robot mode, and for mounting the combined gun on top of the jet in vehicle mode.
Removing the tailfin also helps to streamline the backpack of the figure, it really makes him look alot better in robot mode.
That's also why there's a peghole that only works when the guns are combined. It's for mounting the removed tailfin.
yup same here!
