    Except those aren't the only windows. There's a second row of windows on the original toy - what looks like a bridge. I think he's meant to be a larger craft.

    Also a small door on that same level. Look on the side.

    The cartoon though doesn't show him as the toy does.

    I hear you. It's a G1 scale issue so who even the hell knows. I guess if we wanna go down that route, Cliffjumper turns into a Shriner car:

    That said, I think it's at least arguable that Alanna isn't normal human sized. Homegirl is almost as tall as Seaspray even when in squishy meat form:

    She gains MAYBE a foot or so in height when she becomes the Gondolaformer. Whatever the case, there doesn't seem to be much of a variance when she starts messing with Deceptitran's workstation, which is TF scaled:

    But as you say, who even knows? In my opinion, there's at least some arguable evidence that Seaspray, like A-Train, just has some wild mass shifting silliness going on.

    There's even a door on the side of the bridge section. I guess Seaspray should be HUGE, but he's still got a big heart.

    Interesting-----if that upper level is "human scaled" then that is a pretty large hovercraft (though still not ferry/channel-crossing size), and we sorta have a Combiner Wars Magnus cab situation where the alt mode is "bigger than it first looks". (To a much lesser degree)

    The cartoon shows none of that detail. I think the animators thought he was a smaller craft.

    So it's Schrödinger's Transformer... he's both sizes until you pick one...

    Not so fast! Not wade into (heh) this controversy, but keep in mind Transformers frequently showed humanoid aliens as being the same size as Cybertronians. Such as in The Gambler. So for all we know, Alanna and her undersea peeps were HUUUGE.

    ....um. Yeah. That's what I'm saying. That she's probably not a "normal sized" humanoid alien. Someone else made the argument that Alana being comparatively large next to Seaspray as proof that he was small, not me.

    There's a lot of G1 physics going on here:

    It's only missing a shot of Hoist riding inside of Seaspray's alt form like he did with Huffer. THEN you claim total G1 physics madness!

    Man, I can't wait for MFT Seaspray. Wait, there isn't an MFT Seaspray? What thread is this then?

    Hey, maybe he's a little more human than we realize. It looks like his mass shifts when he's aroused, just like ours does.
    :D

    Thank you for not pointing out that my joke didn't work because I spelled "wade" wrong.
