    Does Lockdown mass shift to be larger than normal carbots.. or do normal carbots mass shift to be smaller than Lockdown?

    Lockdown doesn't really mass shift (any more than anyone else) he's just very limber so he stretches out tall.

    I’ve always wondered if the history between Ratchet and Lockdown in “Thrill of the Hunt” was originally conceived back when Red Alert was still part of Animated’s main cast. Seeing the horrors of war through a medic’s eyes, plus the loss of a body part (in Ratchet’s case part of his head crest, but this could’ve originally been how Red Alert would have lost his hand), both make it feel like the story was at first envisioned with Red Alert in mind.

    The original idea was that Red Alert would've been captured by the Decepticons some time in the past and held in captivity for months. Presumably, if Red Alert were to have lost his hand, it would've happened here. In the present day, he'd be constantly running diagnostics on himself because he fears that he might've been reprogrammed as a Decepticon double agent.

    I wonder if TFs have an actual crossover, would the TFs from the different realities still remains their look like they did in their original reality, or their look also change according to the reality they're in?

    Like if Animated Sentinel Prime gets transported into the Bayverse, did he still remains the same 2D look like he did in the Animated cartoon, or would his looks like a Movieverse version of his Animated design?

    I often wonder if Red Alert has no memory of being the Twins brother/parent, or if he deliberately chooses to publicly distance himself from them (only acknowledging them in private).

    I've always suspected that either the Twins antics triggered Red's neurosis, or Red uses neurosis as a clever disguise and he's actually as wild and dangerous as the Twins. Maybe they learned their warrior prowess from him? :peoples:

    Is this from the comics?

    I'm not sure if the comics ever ventured there, since I've never read any of them.

    It's just a personal observation based on all 3 being Lambo Countachs with different colors.
    If the 3 Datsuns are often considered brothers, I figured that the 3 Lambos are as well. :D

    I'd say the latter. In one of the English convention comics, G1 Grimlock was transported to various realities and his appearance changed to reflect the reality.

    Then, is it something like G1 Grimlock turn into the same look like his alternate Bayverse self or just a "G1, but in Bayverse style look" ?

    I don't think the Datsuns are actually ever stated as being brothers as much as the fandom just calls them that. I honestly doubt Prowl would ever claim Bluestreak or Smokescreen as brothers either.

    But I could see them as "platoon brothers". Rapido and Steetwise can be honorary members. Barricade can now be officially declared a renegade Datsun.

    Dang it, now I want a story about them having to capture and turn in Barricade.

    If TFs can indeed get shot by a Stand Arrow and get themselves a Stand like in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, the stand fights bewteen TFs will probably be incredibly bizarre and unlike any fight scenes we've see in this franchise.

    I can already imagine it'll went like Jazz screaming "DiscoDiscoDiscoDiscoDiscoDisco......", Optimus Prime screaming "Autobots! RolloutRolloutRolloutRolloutRollout....", or Soundwave screaming "EjectEjectEjectEjectEject..." non-stop while trying to punching towards their opponent's direction while floating in mid-air.....

    Sometimes, when I'm thinking of the dinobots, I think, why can they breath fire?

    All I can think is, while Ratchet and Wheeljack were building them, Wheeljack goes, "You know what would be cool? Flamethrowers."

    And no matter what Ratchet says, they get put in.

    I remember this time when I was younger, I was thinking about Henkei, but I couldn't remember the name. What I could remember was that it started an H. So I eventually got the idea that it was called hentai. I found out my mistake shortly before googling it, (Thank God!) and was left wondering what the hell hentai was.

    I miss being ignorant of that.

    I wish I had a Starscream big enough to fit my Cobra Commander 3.75” figure in the cockpit in robot and jet modes.
