so towards the end of G1, namely zone and there after in the manga. Optimus Prime(as star convoy) as well as many other TF had a micromaster partner, Hot Rod. ... who ... was now a micromaster ... what was the signifigance of this? in TF:Armada the minicons boosted the "bulks" body. but that wasnt the case back then. i cant seem to kind anything that really explains it. thanks for awareness!
