Something I never got was why the Maximals and Predacons sometimes had fucked up faces. Yeah I know, interesting line of questioning. What I mean is, Rattrap has a rat face, teeth and all. Tigatron and Cheetor have cat faces. Waspinator and Tarantulas have bug faces. I know the larger toys (deluxe and up) were meant to have regular robot heads and alternate mutant heads. I get that, but in characters like Cheetor and Tigatron where they didn't go with the mutant heads, they still ended up giving the regular robot heads animal-like faces in their animation designs. And then there's the whole idea that the beast modes are just shells, fleshy covers for energon radiation. Well if that's the case why have faces like your alternate mode? That's like Bluestreak having a Datsun-shaped face. I mean, the whole thing behind Transmetals was that their superstructures were inverted, creating metalized beast modes and fleshy robot forms. But really if they already had features in their robot modes influenced by their beast modes it's not that brave a concept. I just think it's odd for guys like Silverbolt to have a literal dog face when in robot mode if he's going to transform into a wolfbird anyway. Am I the only one that never got why the faces of the robots had to change if they weren't even exposed in beast mode? "Maximize? I'm not even in beast mode!"
