    I just got this mold and there is something that I can't figure out...

    On the bottom of the Cycle, where the kickstand is, there is a pieces that moves and comes out. However for some reason, I can't figure out what this thing does.

    I have even checked the instructions on Unicron.com and it doesn't even mention it at all.

    Does anyone have any clue what this thing is for?

    If you need pics let me know... I just assume someone here has this mold and knows what it's for without me having to post a picture..

    Yup. There's a similar tab on Arcee.

    Since Elita ended up being a Chromia repaint, the combination has been dropped.

    oh, so it's one of those useless things put into a figure that they decided not to use... okay... glad I have no intention on transforming this thing every again.. Leaving in cycle mode for display and done..

    Thank you for your quick answers.

    I think they can still combine (using three of the same figure or some combination of duplicates), but it'll end up being more of a fan mode than what the designers intended.
