Remember that little guide that came with the Spider-Man 3 tournament set? (It demonstrated how to attack with each figure.) I found this on the Hasbro site:www.hasbro.com/common/instruct/68282.pdf Enjoy!

It is really too bad this set never saw the light of day, it looks like a lot of fun. Bonecrusher in particular looks like a really cool figure in my opinion. I still find it weird that they made Optimus so small compared to Megatron.

Annointed1 and I stumbled into an impromptu game of Attacktix yesterday... very nostalgic. We just grabbed random Transformers figures included his S2 prototypes. I was tearing it up with Whirl until I got a surprise face-full from Grimlock, and he was having tons of success with little ol' Bumblebee.
I've not seen Grimlock in action, but if I'm not mistaken you push his body (his body is attached to hinges in the legs) so that the button on his belly pushes down against a rock in order for his head to shoot out like a prodder. Pretty unique (if I'm not mistaken) and a very nice looking figure.

Yep, that's how he's intended to work. This one doesn't actually make proper contact between the button and the rock, so we had to use something to trigger the pez-like head attack. That giant noggin had a lot more pop to it than I expected!
Actually yes, it does seem a bit odd, and if I'm not mistaken there was quite the discussion about his button's... placement when he was first revealed all that time ago. They could have put the button on the rock, which would have made about as much sense as a button on his... stomach. Whatever works for them I suppose.
