no, what i'm saying is casting off blasters and other accessories from the bot to alt mode to me is akin to casting off tires from alt mode to bot mode. they are "part" of each respective mode, and shouldn't just "disappear". i'm not advocating lazy engineering, i'm all for better engineering… but also respecting that there are limitations that sometimes have to be accepted as compromises. and in this case nostalgic to the original G1 toy. you keep saying you'd rather not have the G1 toy battery storage backpack, so do you prefer the MP method where the blaster converts to batteries (still) and just hangs off the back?
