thunderhead doesnt and im not sure about sandstorm - he has the black peg on his back but his weapon mode doesnt seem right...

tailpipe turns into a hover bike with dual spinning wheel-blades.. but i cant see any images of him being held as a weapon so unconfirmed?
I had a look at them - the third 'weapon' mode is a bit of a stretch!

Thanks for the info guys, but I'm gonna pass.

A shame though -- I definitely agree that they look better deployed and it would be nice to be able to display them that way. Or even for play value, it'd be nice if we could play with the toys with their weapons deployed.
If you're referring to the MechTech weapons locking into place once deployed - Shockwave's one certainly does lock (well mine does).

Umm... you push/pull down on the tab until it clicks and locks into place?

Fatbot's done it on his one too, so it can't just be my one that locks.

As SS has pointed out dude, you need to clarify which Gestalts you're referring to, e.g. The Energon/Universe Gestalts, the PCC Gestalts etc?

It's not exact for Scramble City limbs, but Scouts seem to be the closest modern equivalent.

I'd go so far as to say that they're little over legends with a deluxe as the waist/torso/head.
(The proportions seem like that anyway )

In their most recent individual release* the Onslaught mold (Mega-Octane) was sold as a deluxe and the limbs at the smallest size, somewhere between legend and scout really. I wanna say good old "Basic" size. The DOTM Cyberverse Plus size is probably the modern equivalent?

* RID was ten years ago! How can that be?!
