    When was this recorder again? We've seen photos of all four of the combiner sockets on Starscream. The pair in the legs fold out at a angle and the other set that are in the forearms. The torso mode seems to follow the way Superion's works.

    I have to say, getting the reprolabels and nonnef parts for Broadside absolutely make him a great figure. It sucks that you have to buy an add-on accessory to really make his jet mode work, and it's really starting to get frustrating to feel the need to go Toyhax for every Hasbro voyager at this point, but it has honestly made Broadside one of my favorite figures.

    But alas, Hot Rod cannot do The Pose (tm)

    I like to think that the armor suits are actually a common thing some titanmasters wear to protect from being stepped on (or forced into the neck hole of some bot they don't really know), ergo the spark bearers are using it to their advantage.

    I haven't decided if Skullgrin is either the identity Liege Maximo's spark assumed or an separate guy lugging it around. I'm way more down with the former, since it jives with the whole "decoy suit" concept. People know Skullgrin, but have never seen him without the armor on.

    In regard to the Dinobot combiner. I would like to see the return of our glorious Dino Pope.

    Do not do the "minds eye" joke ever again. 2 episodes in a row is enough for a lifetine

    Thanks for answering my question, Vangelus. I'm sorry it was so wordy, I promise if I ever ask another that I will keep it short and sweet.

    You guys are totally right about Jazz's vehicle mode evoking Braver. It's a dead ringer! Just a thought... if there is indeed a possible Braver repaint in the cards, another new Countach mold would sure come in handy to make not only Laster, but also add Sideswipe and Red Alert to the combining G1 carbot roster as well.

    Oh, and regarding Jazz's vehicle mode not having the right silhouette... it's hard to argue with that. But I like that he at least resembles another kind of racing Porsche, the Le Mans-style 956 (versus his classic 935). Seems like it at least puts him in the right lineage.

    So has anyone else noticed that they're just one away from having all of the Autobot and Decepticon pretenders from Masterforce? The only one missing is Waverider.

    Also, regarding Primal. What if he can ride the OpOp alt mode like a giant motorcycle?
