So right before the convention, Kamakuras lived out his fantasy and spent a few hours going through several Flaggs to cherry pick the best parts to get a nice specimen together for his collection.

While he was doing this, we sent aside a inner black missile rack. We began debating whether the Flagg came with only 6 missiles for the launcher, or an additional 2 to sit inside the inner armory. Before consulting the blueprints we tried to sit an orange missile onto the black rack, and it doesnt fit. Its too long. This kinda blew my mind, because I always ASSUMED that they fit, but never tried it.

Since then, Ive asked several people the same question.. what it supposed to go there? And they all answer the same thing: The orange Flagg missiles. But they dont fit!

Some one else said: Skystriker missiles. They dont fit either.


So, if some one does in fact KNOW, can you please put a photo up of what does fit in this dang thing, and put this to rest??!??!

I always just assumed it was a gun rack, and they called it the armory because that would techinically be the room filled with various weapons, but I'm not certain what they desiagned the rack for

If you have the Marc Bellemo books, maybe there is a pic that shows this.

Question, as how are you trying to get them to fit? If you stand them up right, will it work? I can't really remember if I ever really use it myself. I haven't had mine set up in a long time, or I would try a few different things. I could see backpacks fitting with the way it looks. I think guns wouldn't work very well, as the big gaps on the front, but I could be wrong too.

This is a good question.

Had it since it came out and could NEVER figure out what to do with that piece. I always took it out of that room and left it empty. Very interested to see if anyone can figure this out.

Do any of the promotional images, like the catalogs, show it in use...?

huh. this is a good question. i just always assumed that it was for the orange missiles, and that we were doing it wrong ...

however, since the MCC has an 'armory' that consists of some slots that you just put weapons into (leaning up) -- maybe that's what this is for -- just leaning guns/packs/acc into each 'compartment'

good question ZG -- who on the hasbro team worked on this design? we could possibly get a real answer!

I assumed it was for figure guns. What is the missile room called on a real carrier?

Edit: air launch missile room from USS John F Kennedy.

it's not an ammo dump? Ammo Dumps are the "LASER BLAST". Odri's are [LASER BLAST].

I read a brochure in a magazine once.

Maybe it was a pamphlet...
