    It's...kinda Brave-ish. I like that but I don't like the wings just dangling off the arms.

    Why is it Rescue Bots keeps giving us Optimus in different alt modes (monster truck, jumbo jet, T-rex, etc) yet in Generations it's just truck, truck, another truck?

    Hell, even GO! gave us OP as a train/dragon.

    Optimus Prime gained the ability to fly, but at the cost of hands and articulation.

    Those wing-trailers remind me of the ones that Super Gobot Stacks had...

    Presumably the same reasons a lot of kids' cartoons are better than most cartoons meant for adults: It isn't expected to be taken seriously, therefore there's more room for fun oddball stuff.

    That said, I think you've forgotten this little number:

    Man, his arms looks silly. Kinda surprised they didn't run with the wings hanging off of where his "real arms" are and just molded gigantic fists on the ends.

    Oh hey, it's the prime that I returned because I could never close the legs together for truck mode and the wings made the jet mode look bad

    Honest question, especially given my dislike for Rescue Bots:

    WHY?!?!?
