    Kinda wondering if ROTF Prime might've been different if so

    I don't know how they could have improved it. I mean, sure, he could've had articulated hands, but his back wasn't really affected.

    I imagine they put plug-in places on Prime in preparation, but otherwise it was Jetfire whose design was affected by the combination mode.

    Yep, Jetfire was the one impacted by the combination. Optimus, not so much.

    ROTF Prime design might be different if it is not to compromise the combining section with Jetfire

    Prime barely does anything for the combination. Open his feet, open the back, he's done. It's Jetfire that has to do all the bending and twisting to connect securely to Prime's back and stabilize him essentially standing on his tippy-toes.
