Okay, I'm not trying to make sense of this at all. I gave up on that a while ago. I've been amusing myself this week by watching my entire G1 series DVD set, and so far I'm in the middle of season two at the moment. I find it pretty amusing that the Decepticons can always fly without the aid of a jet-pack, but the unfortunate Autobots need the jet-pack only half the time? It seems that in half the episodes, especially the early ones, the Autobots can fly anytime anywhere they need to go. And the rest of the time, they use back-pack style jet-packs in order to fly. It seems that the Autobots abilities change from episode to episode to fit within the story. What do you find amusing about G1? Lets forget about the silly animation errors, there's already ton's of threads for that. Also, lets not try and make logic out of any of this. It'll just give us all headaches and our brains will explode leaving our computer monitors a big mess. LOL!
