    Which TF toy takes the biggest hit for losing it's accessories? The biggest ones have to be the ones that needed help transforming.

    1) Primus tops my list with his omega lock.

    2) Powermasters. Were the pieces interchangable?

    3) Headmasters. Hasbro could have solved that problem by releasing new heads.

    4) Weapons-formers where the weapon make up half the alt mode. Of course if you lose half of ANY toy, it'll suck. I'm looking at you Nemesis Convoy / TFTM Blackout / Animated Lugnut.

    5) Most Armada / Cybertron we interchangable and the power-up minimal so it usually isn't a problem. I know Armada Blurr needed his mini but I can't remember if it was required for transformation.

    Animated Megatron bothers me too. His second sword/rotor is packed at the bottom of his box and easily thrown away.

    Who else?

    G1 combiners also have it pretty rough.

    Basically anything with a gimmick that is activated by a separate toy/ weapon/ Minicon/ key etc. Though any of those can usually be activated by a screwdriver or pin. But it still sucks losing the extra pieces. Especially Headmasters, you lose the small parnter, you've got a toy without a head.

    Fort Max and Scorponok; there were a ton of accessories, and finding one with everything is like mining for gold.

    There are also a number of G1 Pretenders whose inner robots have no distinguishable alt-mode without their accessories.

    Headmasters without a doubt. Primus could still be transformed with some force, and powermaster gimmicks could be used with some poking around.

    Headmasters, you lose the head and the toy is now vehicle only, or looks incredibly stupid as a robot.

    Not needed for transformation but to open his missile bays. I have a spare without a mini-con and he transforms fine.

    Headmasters irk me the most. You can spend more on a head than the entire rest of the body.

    I don't think so, Incinerator is only needed to stick into the rear of the alt. mode to deploy the blasters (which was replaced with the cyber-key doing the exact same thing for the Cybertron and SG uses of the mold).

    I'd like to mention the Energon combiners. It sucks when you only have 4 of any five bots necessary, but if you loose the little translucent weapons you also loose the "hands" and "feet" as well! (I think the Aerialbot/Superion set is most affected by this, as the F-22's are useless without the guns and the connector bar)

    Does Big Convoy's giant cannon count? If you lose it, you practically lose the trunk and 1/4 of the beast mode.

    I'm leaning towrards the seekers too... considering that a large part of their transformation involved simply repositioning parts.

    Back in the day, i wanted at least one of them, but opted for Dirge becaue he had the least parts to loose.

    G1 seekers are 50% loose parts. Then again, if you get a Skywarp and remove all the parts you get...

    Incomplete Skywarp! Woop! So he doesn't count.

    Or slender fingers.
