    Did anybody notice in TF MTMTE Trailbreaker and Shockwave have 2 arms and later in the series we see both of them having one. Does anybody knows if this is a animation error or they just lost their arm in battle and Ratchet and Wheeljack replaced Trailbreakers arm, and Shockwave having replaced his arm aswell?

    Do you mean 'hands' as opposed to "arms"?

    If so, I'm sure they're just interchangeable like when Hot Rod's hand transforms into a buzz saw or Prime uses his laser axe.

    Maybe.

    Uh, they're always had two arms, dude.

    Trailbreaker very likely swaps his hand out for a weapon, but Shockwave's hand in MTMTE is just an animation error.

    Trailbreaker's toy had 2 fists. He just liked having the gun/tube thing out most of the time.

    With Shockwave it was an error, that happened a few times in season's 1 & 2.

    I never noticed it with Trailbreaker.

    Well watch Episode 1 when Spike talks to Trailbreaker in the Ark before going for a drive with Hound he has his two hands. And later in on we see him having 1 hand and the other one is used for a force field in the Episode - A Plague Of Insecticons.

    I just watched the entire series last week and noticed that Shockwave consistently has two hands before the TFs go to Earth and isn't shown with the gun hand until after they awaken on Earth.

    Hey dude, a lot of wood-shop mishaps can happen in 4 million years. Maybe he was making a step stool for his mom and wans't paying attention. (I dunno, I am tired of hearing the "animation error" excuse, so I thought that was funny. Whatever)

    Trailbreaker is a nudist!
    Well I guess most Transformers are, except the Pretenders and Ultra Magnus.

    That's exactly my point, that's a lot of frames of animation for an "error". Plus, this time around was the first time that I was actually paying attention to that detail specifically. Every time Shockwave is on screen pre Earth he has two hands. In every scene after he has the gun hand. If it is an error, it's a pretty consistent one, a bit like Rumble being blue :lol  So yeah, I just assume he lost it in battle while megatron and co were on Earth. The female Autobots were still on Cybertron so it's definitely possible.

    -Or maybe it was that woodshop thing.

    I think Shockles had an accident when building something in the 200 years Megatron's crew left Cybertron.

    They were actually gone for four millions years.
