There is a button at the top edge of the Wii classic controller and when you press it, it moves some plastic on some little grooves on the back of the controller.  It makes it look like it should attach to something, but there are no corresponding grooves on the wiimote for it to attach to.  The diagram on the insert that comes with that controller has the button on it, but no explanation pointing to it saying what it does.  Anyone have a clue?

I thought the VC was designed to have the Wiimote connect to the back of it (as you're required to have the controller connect to the Wiimote for the wireless connection, right?). My Gamestop didn't get a single VC controller in (even for reserves), so I won't have one until Monday or Tuesday (current estimate).

You plug the controller cable to the wiimote, yes.  I thought maybe theywould clip to each other as well, but I see nothing on the wiimote that could insert into the classic controller.

Thats the attachment point for the WiiZooka addon, to impress your friends.

Without question, Lions FTW.

My guess would be the self-destruct button because if little Johnny doesn't like his new toy for Christmas, you can just have him blow his own stupid ass up. icon_lol

Ha, this thread is funny, but apparently the button will remain a mystery.  To stayy off topic, though, Voltron never interested me much, for whatever reason, despite being Japanese and having robots.

Confession time here, I grew up watching the vehicle team, not the lion team.  I saw vehicle team first and when I first saw lion team I thought it was dumb not only because there were just 5 of them, but because they were all pretty much the same.  Lot's more variety in vehicle team, and they can combine into three 5-vehicle machines as well as the 15 vehicle robot.

+many to Misguided.

Don't push it... it's "The Button", if you catch my drift.
