It'd be hypocritical of me to complain about that.

I don't like them on RotF Sideways, Jolt, or anywhere else it's done.

I like what they did with Classics Optimus Prime's waist. I like it with the Henkei! Henkei! paint even more.

It always bothered me the most on MP-01, the duel radiator grill. At least on Classics Voyager Prime I can understand it, because it is a massively different shaped grill to attain an aesthetically pleasing slimline waist (which is a ridiculous sentence to write about a robot), but on MP-01 its the same size and everything, it just felt cheap.

My only problem with it is that they didn't bother to paint them, but I guess those paint aps got cut out for budgetary reasons or whatever causes certain things to get paint aps while other stuff on a figure gets ignored. As for "cheats," I prefer them too since I'd prefer an attempt at accuracy, as best they can manage it. A toy can have a cheat and still be fun, so what do I care? The wheels on DotM Prime only look weird because they're not painted, not because they're molded in there.

We've got to the stage where we're complaining about 'realism' in ficticious toy robots that turn into vehicles? Amazing...

In the end it's all about aesthetics, and more specifically how we need almost all of our alien robots to have HUMANOID PROPORTIONS. It really shouldn't matter if a bot has 2 arms/2 legs, head, torso etc. but then the fandom would be bitching to no end about how ugly a character is. And let's not even get started on how female bots are always structured (slender/sleek)...

Example: Classics/Henkei voyager Optimus Prime for example (and most Primes). A well-built "chest", with the fake grill needed to resemble "six-pack abs"

The movie twins both have FIVE tires in robot mode and FOUR tires in vehicle mode. Their toys aren't accurate because they DON'T produce an extra tire out of nowhere.

Your point is amusing, though.

I also dislike fake window chests on my Primes along with those grills.

Um. Most cars have spare tires. So most cars do have 5 tires.
