    I was intrigued until I found out it's a partsformer and not a true triple changer.

    Hobby Lobby has them too. I saw them in the science geared stuff near the model sets.

    Partsformer essencially means, it doesn't naturally transform to the modes. Meaning, the only way to make a mode is to add or remove parts to attain the various modes. For instance, if you look in Radicons, you see all these Devastators that use a Unicron upperleg/crotch section and parts of the arms to create Devastator. The figures themselves don't have the means to connect to eachother to make Devastator like the toys we would find at retail. So you keep the crotch, and hands part seperate, and add the vehicles to them when you want to make Devs.

    Partsforming can also refer to simply having to remove and re-attach the same group of parts to each other, without adding or removing anything. If I'm not mistaken, that's how the BTR "Transformers" from Armada worked, and I used to have a couple Mega Bloks robots that did something similar.
