Ever since it started there is something that I have found unexpected from this series. This show is owned and created by Hasbro. Hasbro knew they would be making figures of this series. So I find it odd that they cheat during transformation. You don't get a semi clear sense of how the bots physically change. Animated for example clearly defined how each bot transformed. I like that. Not only does it make designing a toy easier, or least it seems it would, but it just makes the transformation more fluid to me. If they explode then reassemble it seems slightly more of a forced ability. I'm weird I guess.
