    I don't know if a thread like this already exists. If it does, either it needs a revival or a new thread.

    Anyway, this is the Specific Toy Question Thread. I think that can mostly be interpreted as a specific question about a certain figure; for example, "Does Masterpiece Ultra Magnus' cab turn into a white Optimus?" or questions like that that need a good answer.

    Here's a few of mine:

    Does PotP Orion Pax from the Evolution Optimus Prime turn into a flat-nosed cab? Or are there elements from the Optimus Prime parts that do that?

    Are there any glaring issues with ER Wheeljack that you notice in-hand?

    Does the cab from TR Powermaster Optimus have its own robot mode (like the G1 figure), or is it just a part of the larger combined mode?

    Is Siege Astrotrain's "launch pad" aka U-Haul crate necessary for any of his modes, as in it is impossible to properly use the figure without it? Is it okay to toss it when you get the figure?

    Feel free to ask more and answer more below!

    Orion Pax turns into a flat nose cab, if you can call it that. The arms are handled quite poorly in alt mode.

    Powermaster OP cab does not have its own robot mode. If you unscrew the circular holding piece, you can separate the cab from the trailer. There was a 3rd party figure that replaced the cab and transformed into its own bot mode; however, this is no longer stocked anywhere.

    Yes it turns into the cab independent of the trailer, though it’s a bit messy from the back

    the small sections of windscreen that hide in the legs are cracked on my copy

    No the cab doesn’t turn into a robot, there are 3p release that remedy this

    It just holds weapons and the shoes it’s not necessary for anything in the base robot

    Will Earthrise Sky Lynx fit inside a Detolf shelf?

    Posting just in case someone else is curious, but based on measurements I was given, he should. Just maybe not in any terribly dynamic poses.

    You'd probably get quicker answers in the review threads for each figure, or find that your questions have already been answered.
