    I'm not changing anything, I said Sunstreaker may share some engineering with Wheeljack, which would fit into the "partial design" use of the word partial. Please try and follow along before you try and use a gotcha ;)

    Hoist also has his ramp ~ and I realize not "all" have 2 (I think Runamuck just gets his gun, and Smokescreen gets Gun + 2 rocket launchers...), which is why I said "many"... but I think most have more then 1... and Sunstreaker's supercharger, I think most would think of as being an "integrated" piece as much as Wheeljack's spoilers... (plus it just looks really dumb as a gun)

    That's all I'm saying on it, if people want to make it devolve into another debate it won't be on me

    Yeah I get what you’re saying. Do wish we got a proper blaster for sunstreaker but it is what it is. Prob gonna order an upgrade kit from nonnef or some other 3rd party.

    I mean, if you go on and on about how "partial" should have some sort of special definition within the fan lingo and then switch to using it as a regular word-- it's confusing. It also goes to show how retool and remold are better words, since they aren't used in everyday language.

    You and Daimchoc reopened this whole discussion.

    You tried to say I said something I didn't. I responded. This isn't the thread for that discussion though, this one is Define the term “partial” as used by Hasbro

    If you've got a problem with me using the word partial, ignore it rather than acting like a smartass

    I really want this guy but I wish they would've considered the head proportions a little more. Is it just me? I can't stop seeing MasterMade proportions on him.o_O  At least the head's not as massive as the fort max titan.

    He does look cool. Saw this earlier but didnt think to post sorry. All the shield/road formers look cool tbh. Love that he is a crossroad secction too.

    There's also a whole thread for this can we take it there so I don't have to use the Ignore feature on everyone in this one?

    Same. Smart of Hasbro to make a crossroad piece for people who army build to put together big cities. I also love that it means both his bot/alt fit the "Doublecross" name.

    But man, really wish they had ensured they were compatible with TR because now we only have 4 figures to connect using these...unless we also stock up on repaints.

    Using the TR joint would've made it way easier to integrate these in to existing layouts.

    Yeah I know its a shame. Would have been good if they did one side AIR lock and the other side as TR but then would make it awkward I guess

    I certainly get a little bit of "kid in a Scorponok costume" from his proportions (though not as bad as Armada Unicron's "little kid in football pads" proportions...)

    seems like his head should be... maybe 15% smaller?

    Are you sure the head is blue? Is it at least remolded? Giving him the exact same head as Airwave seems like a weird choice.

    Is there anything about the TR connection point that would have precluded them from reusing it here? It would have had to follow the same rules as AIR Lock, that is it wouldn't have a Male/Female end that only worked one way.

    someone - and apologies to them, this is the 2nd time I've forgotten who - noted a while back that the heads of the Modulators have the helmets of 1 of the original Micromaster partners that came with the bases and the faces of the other...

    Yeah, in hand the proportions are fine. That pic almost looks modified.

    I know, but at least Greasepit and Ironworks have different paint. I'd expect Hot House to have a red or grey head instead of blue like Airwave.
