    So I am posting this in the general board because I am hoping it will get expose and interest... this may not be new, but I could not find anything about it pretty much anywhere. The standard 5mm pegs are the right size to fit into the bottom of a regular Lego brick (pretty much any kind).

    This means that you could build transformable Lego accessories that plug into the pegs on figures and expand the play exponentially. I have attached a few pictures that I took with a random piece I had lying around and my Ironworks figure I just got.

    I've known about this for years now; I'm surprised this isn't common knowledge, though, it's nothing groundbreaking, it's just a little neat feature.

    Like I said, I did not expect I was the first to discover it... but I am also super curious at this point why the folks that make Lego Transformers have not taken the final step to making Lego Transforming Accessories for actual bots.

    Because it's such a small niche; it isn't really worth the cost of production.

    That could be a possibility... still seems odd that SOMEONE is not making stuff and posting it.
