    I see kibble as those parts of an altmode that hangs off of a bot in a manner that restricts posibality (or just looks stupid to me).

    My current example is the jet parts that hang on Cybertron Soundwaves arms. They do nothing but get in the way.

    If kibble sucks so much, then use it for something else. Shit, is it that hard to come up with secondary uses for kibble?

    I don't think you're thinking about the same thing.

    I am. I meant the "excess uncalled for" parts on a Transformer that everyone despises. Sure. We all have our own way of thinking. But if a person hates the "excess parts" on a Transformer, they can just come up with another use for it.

    Armada Sideswipe could have super bellbottom action, for example.

    If you mean what I think you do, it's not that easy to do. Not all kibble is removable. It's just in the way. Take a look at RID Sideburn. He has kibble on his shoulder and back. He is also what we call a shellformer. Shellformers have lots of kibble, because the alt mode shell just hangs off.

    I meant as in what the excess parts can be considered as. Like Armada Sideswipe's "ugly ass lumex hands". I consider them as boxing gloves to induce major asskicking to Decepticons. Or like you said, Speedbreaker has lotsa kibble and is a shellformer. I consider the 'shell' to be deflector shields to inducing some awful bashing on Decepticons.
    :drunk  So many uses.

    Cybertron Thunderblast, she has a whole damn boat hanging off her back because she's a shellformer.

    I would say CYB Crosswise too, but his fenders and doors do actually look pretty cool.

    CYB Soundwave too, yup the jet pieces on the arms.

    RiD car bros, for obvious reasons.

    And last one I can think of right now, BW Rhinox, he had Rhino bits hanging off everywhere.

    great.
    now i've got the kibbles n' bits song stuck in my head.

    i like G1 kibble. it makes them so... eighties.
    but new kibble... meh. not so great.

    maybe the movie toys will have anti-kibble morphing technology.

    Doesn't stop the "kibble" from looking bad, Armada Sideswipe being the prime example.

    Kibble's a fanboy term that when in full foaming fanboy rantmode is used to degrade a child's toy...
