    Has anybody noticed when Gears was about to go get his personality disk Starscream shows up with Skywarp's voice and then we hear Starscream's voice right after. Typical classic G1 animation error :lol

    I like how this thread is about an animation error and not the absurdity of a personality disk.

    Is Gears the only one that has a personality disk? I don't remember any of the other characters having such an issue. Other than when Shrapnel would put one of his cerebral shells on them.

    Bombshell, you mean.

    G1 had a lot of weird anatomical parts in the robots as they figured out the mythos. "Microbots" had a wild immune system for Megatron. And messed up crap like drunk robots.

    In a way the Combaticons did.

    Starscream stole the Personality Components and put them into the bodies he had created for them.

    Hahaha, I'll never forget that episode, or when the writers tried to pass them off as being "overcharged".

    I took the "personality components" to be equivalent to a "spark" in the Beast series(es). Whatever it was that was taken from Gears was just something that altered his personality. I guess maybe kinda like an anti-depressant would.
