I don't know if this has been discussed but there was a question I always asked myself when watching G1 cartoons as a kid. Hod Rod got the matrix and grew instantly into a larger and more powerful Autobot. His voice got deeper and got Prime slapped on the end of his name. He even grew a trailer out of his...well you get it. What I never understood is why Optimus didn't shrink into a little runt and lose his trailer when he lacked the matrix within him? I get that he died when it was removed but even still I expected him to regress into a smaller chump once reactivated. Similar thing with Magnus... he just stayed the same. Heck his name didn't even change so it's no wonder he got pummeled 20 minutes after becoming a matrix-warmer for Galvatron. Just an observation from 10 year old me...any thoughts?
