Does anyone feel throughout this passing decade that the TF's Cybertronian forms aren't done enough justice in recent media? In Prime, RID 2015, Combiner wars, and Cyberverse, TF's are depicted before they arrive on earth, they already have an earth mode chassis. However, realistically this is probably done for budget / money reasons. But for me, this bugs the shit out of me because the characters don't outright Transform at all before they've scanned an earth mode vehicle to hide the assets being re-used. And it's awkward as ever too. In one of the Prime episodes for example, Jack helps Smokescreen choose an earth vehicle and we're left to guess what it would be off-screen. But any tension of this mystery is destroyed because Smokescreen already has the earth-car parts he'll soon scan. Same with all the "flashbacks" the recent cartoons are doing too. But anyway, what are your thoughts on this matter?
