    The name "pants-former" started with Toyworld's Constructor, which was designed by the same team and which used a separate waist/crotch/upper leg piece (basically the lower section of the central piece pictured above). It was, basically, a set of pants which was used in the combined mode.
    Zeta's Superion and Bruticus, which came afterwards, have the chest section also (with Silverbolt and Onslaught, respectively, folding into cube-like forms and slotting in the back). So it's more than just pants - the central bot is actually not really required to form the combiner, if you're happy to have a hollow back (or fill it with something else, like foam). But as they have the same waist/crotch/upper leg engineering as Constructor and is a "partsforming" piece not used outside of the combined mode, I think most people would lump them in with Constructor's pants.

    TL: DR - yes.

    I doubt we'll see those options. FT is doing a pretty straight G1 set of Arialbots here and those options are from Combiner Wars.

    And it would most likely add development time to this guy and many of us just want them to finish and get everything out. Adding more options that aren't really appropriate to what they're doing would just make a lot of folks very pissy.

    This really only works if you just want the combined mode or don't care what the individual modes look like.

    I did and learned the hard way that getting a tattoo after getting plastered with your buddies and passing out is a terrible idea.

    I think its pretty clear that they intended the combiner limbs to come next and with that delayed they had to massively ramp up development on the next bots in line to catch up like they did with Rouge. This is why I think Chomp, Huffer, Outrider, Hannibal, Acoustic Wave/Tapes, Tesla 2.0 got done. I think this is also why they will move up Berserk, Cliffy, Mirage, Jazz, Tapes 2 and Blaster/Tapes. They will likely announce Bruticus and Defensor and all of these will be accepted for push back on the burner. They likely finish the first 2 combiners end of 2022/early 2023. I still think they announce Scourge and Sky Lynx officially. I don't think they have a problem with 4 combiners going at once if they can alternate limbs.

    FT will always do reissues to fill in production gaps but need to keep clearing their mold investments on new releases.
