    Anyone else notice the wheels on Jolts legs from the FAB?

    A hint that the wheel-body kibble isn't the "movie" transformation?

    Yeah, I suppose they thought it was too complex for the kids to transform him. Weave seen these style of wheels+legs work before.

    The thing is... aside from bonecrusher, has anyone in the previous movie "only" had wheels like Thrust from BM? And i think even BC had wheels as an option to skate through the freeway. I think when he was fighting Prime under the overpass, he was no longer rolling around. I think even with the Chevy Concept car we saw before, those wheels are used to get the bot around in robot mode when he needs some speed. I'm sure somewhere, some designer said "Why would they transform to robot mode to run around, when driving on wheels is faster to cover long terrain in least time, even for their size.

    yeah, I think one notion the live action movie has developed is that TFs can transform any part of themselves as-needed. OP's sword, BC wheels, Megs Cannon. It doesn't seem like a part of the original "lore", but personally I like the concept. Makes them more adaptable, organic, alien IMO.

    Thats weird when I was watching G1 Rumble's arms transformed into piledrivers. Prime had an axe, and various autobots had hands that turned into weapons or tools. Not a new concept at all.
