They are and they do it's more of a function over aesthetics thing. Again I blame HA. I really enjoy that play pattern. Having transformers that actually turn into vehicles that little figures can get inside of. Diclone did it and that's where they came from. Anyway That led to me collecting tf alternators which are also 124 scale. I put Jack Sparrow into Battle ravage and the rest was history. I think we had this conversation elsewhere as well. On your GI Joe thread. The only happy medium I've been able to find is the McFarland vehicles from The walking Dead series. The Woodbury assault vehicle and Dale's RV work pretty well. But they are brick-based.
