    But why not something that translates to trench/depression/engraved etc---you know, like a groove? I don't recall "doubt" being his character trait.

    As cool as Defensor was I never understood how a motorcycle kept him up it\'s like he had a peg leg.

    Why are you folks talking about the names now? We've had the names since last year. We even have the pictures on the first post of this thread.

    Let me know when you find out what it says about you.
    Because it says the same thing about me.

    I guess "Dubium" didn't have enough 8th Grade Level Sexual Entendre.

    Each and every one of them work better than "Incertus".

    Why wouldn't Bruticus also have one super short leg and one super giant arm? Why wouldn't Superion's limbs be completely different sizes?

    Using that logic Menasor would be the only one with proportional limbs because at lease the cars are close to being the same relative "size.". But the answer is that everyone mass shifts anyways so it doesn't actually matter one bit.

    I know I personally don't give a rip about all these stupid 3rd party names for figures, I always make sure my displays have the Transformers names I grew up with. I don't need to fill up my brain with more useless knowledge, than what I'm already using.

    I thought this was long dead. Wow. I'm good with my Maketoys Defensor though.

    He does have great look to him. Better than MMC's or X-Transbots.

    I appreciate that the part is not completely superfluous, but you can not say it isn’t parts forming.

    Not requiring a separate piece is literally what "not partsforming" means. The foot is integrated into Hot Spot. Thus, it is not a separate piece. And, thus, it is not partsforming.

    Pretty sure Groove had a lack of commitment to the war in his bio, which was a trait instead given to First Aid in the cartoon for "The Ultimate Weapon".

    That's a great looking Groove. I wonder why they didn't try and make him chest armor instead? Oh wait...

    Doesn't matter. Maketoys Defense is a kick ads design. I'm an MMC fanboy, but that doesn't mean they are automatically the best. Look at how Planet X's Grimlock is so much nicer than the one they designed. Sometimes MMC comes in second.

    I mean, when I first saw pantsforming, I was like, boy thats lame, hope it doesn't catch on. Then the next step was the full blown torso piece including the head, so the "torso" bot just ended up wadded up like a used up tissue and shoved in the back.

    Literally my favorite part of any combiner is "where they gonna stick the combiner head", so the whole Zeta style thing leaves me cold. These guys are more my jam.
