can i go on a quick rant? i promise ill keep it short. whats the huge frown on partsforming? i was building a pitvistator at some point and someone was like, whatever, its a "partsformer," and those limbs dont do anything. so...peshaw. so whut? almost every original combiner was a partsformer to the extent that the heads/shields/hands/feet of the gestalt didnt have a purpose other than in gestalt mode (i think devastator is the exception where the gestalt pieces attached to the individual bots, but still had no function in their robot modes). but that was part of the fun, right? even the first optimus primes hands and head came off and sat in the cab. but my point - if i make a joint interchangeable, and have pieces or weapons which switch spots at different times, im partsforming? what if i just tie a string to it all so its attached? or maybe i dont know what partsforming is. but it sounds like something somebody made up.
