    I'm thinking it actually went into Cyberverse.

    It clearly went in to DLX Ratchet's Mech-Tech weapon. :rolleyes: 

    The way that the saw spins when you deploy it is beyond genius, and so simple!

    In seriousness though it seems to have gone in to the smaller figures.

    I really don't think it went anywhere. There's still lots of creative and unique things going on with the transformations. They're just not as ridiculously exacting and intricate as they were in RotF, for the most part (Leader Sentinel Prime being a major exception to this).

    The engineering is still there, it's just not uselessly complicated like before.

    I agree about Roadbuster. I just wish they'd have weaponized his deluxe and left the HA clean.

    It went into the human alliance basics, that's why they rule.

    I definitely agree. A lot of the transformations for the DOTM line are simplified, but still are very clever.

    The new stuff is pretty darn simplified... but there's bound to be some wa cooler stuff a year from now.

    Yeah. Deluxe Ratchet is miles more accurate than that old Voyager mold, yet the transformation is so much more quick and simple. I'd be happy if they made a new Voyager Ratchet just from upscaling the Deluxe.
