    Not so much a hidden feature as a remnant; the Matrix accessory is reused from a G1 Convoy reissue. Still nice to know, I didn’t realise that’s the mold they used.

    Good thing I don't display my figures with its back facing cause otherwise this would be very ugly to look at.
    Not what I was expecting though.

    Well it's more useful to do it this way if you don't like having to hold the chest down every time you want to move an arm.

    Well after further investigation with my figure, I took the chest apart and there seems to be no hinges or anything that would give me more articulation.

    Sooooo do the instructions mention the Hun-Gurr forelimbs hingeing into the Abominus chest to clean up the robot mode? I don’t remember it but those instructions were Lowkey trash anyway

    Saw this in the Cog review thread and thought it should be posted here. Full credit to @Seeaich :

    Anyone that has picked up Siege Cog has probably noticed that his guns are extremely loose in his hands - odd, considering how good the rest of the tolerances on his 5mm ports/pegs are (they're what holds his body together, after all). Turns out it's because the guns aren't meant for Cog at all: they're sized to fit TR Cerebros' hands perfectly, and are even molded after G1 Cerebros' gun, not G1 Cog's. I guess Hasbro heard people's complaints about Cerebros not having weapons.

    He does, though. The gun in Fort Max's chest is on a 5mm peg and comes off.

    I've used that with him as well, but from what I've seen some people weren't satisfied with that.

    I really hope i'm doing this right, but i haven't seen this in the instructions of takara legends blitzwing. The tank barrel can be detached from the turret and can be plugged onto the barrel of his gun. Giving him a longer rifle.

    Thank you for sharing that, here. I had forgotten to do so.

    Still, this news is indeed a hidden feature. It's important enough that it needs to be shared. Pretty cool of Hasbro to make sure the line was somewhat backward compatible and so on. Much like the Battlemasters weaponry having handles for the Prime Masters to hold and AOE Evasion Mode Optimus having DOTM Megatron's rifle, etc.

    That's a step in Megatron's instructions, he was the pretool use of the mold. I don't know if this step is in Blitzwing's instructions (US) or not. Anyone else know? Please chime in when possible.

    Don’t recall seeing it in any instructions for either (and with Megatron are you talking about his fusion cannon?)

    The actual cannon (grey piece the fusion cannon slots over on Megatron) and Blitzwings longer purple cannon come off and fit onto the end of his rifle

    Megatron doesn't come with a rifle though. Only the cockpit gun and fusion cannon.

    I meant his cockpit gun. No idea where I got Rifle from. But it’s the gun both Megatron and Blitzwing share

    Oh ok. I tried it and it doesn't go on straight. The barrel of the cockpit gun has a sight on it. Pretty interesting though in regards to blitzwing.
