    I politely disagree.
    Seconded, Mine has a problem where the crotch popes off during transformation
    He has a cool look, just had the Breakdown mold I hate.
    I completely agree, I hope we get through the last '84 and '85 car bots we need to be updated with the post-Primewars style and a few 86 bots then let's move on For '84 I think we are only missing Jazz, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker. '85 I think is Tracks and Inferno. '86, I don't know about you guys, I am fine with just a New Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scourge.
    Sorry man, A Seibertron article highlighted that he is gonna be based on his rebirth head.

    I've honestly always been kind of amazed at all of the licenses they're able to acquire for those things.

    one peeve I have, but it's more with people than the toys, and that's those that can't accept the actual toy's name being what it is and must rant on and on about it.

    Jetfire and Rubble/Frenzy and the main ones of course.

    Get over it, it's Jetfire and not Skyfire, it's on the freaking box. Skyfire was a cartoon copyright thing and nothing more. Rubble/Frenzy was an animation error.

    I don't mind the backpacks on the G1 Fembots all that much. The stability issue they create is a bit annoying, and yeah they'd look better without them, but it's not a big deal to me the way it is to many people apparently. Overall, I like the look of them, and I'm pleased to have figures for these characters.

    In my personal head-cannon, I like to imagine them as jet packs. If some 3rd party ever did a couple of jet thruster add-ons for them, I'd gladly purchase those.

    I've never liked those figures. The whole aesthetic just doesn't do it for me.

    Jetfire is always Jetfire to me, never Skyfire. I never liked the name Skyfire - Jetfire is a much cooler name. More zing to it. That they slapped the name Skyfire on him due to an annoying copyright issue makes me like it even less.

    Ditto. To me they are Fireflight, Skyfire, Slag, Octane and Shrapnel. No way in hell am I calling them Firefly, Jetfire, Slug, Octone and Skrapnel.

    All of the examples you listed only apply to the toys though (and I'm pretty sure everyone calls them by their cartoon names and not their toy names.

    Jet/Skyfire is the outlier because his actual character name had to be changed in the cartoon, not just the toy name like everyone else listed above.

    Slag was Slug in at least FoC, not sure if he was around in Devastation to have his name changed

    I think there is room for both. Being modeled after the cartoon depiction Siege Jetfire is Skyfire to me. However, other incarnations based more on the toy, such as the T30 leader, are Jetfire.

    Seconded, thirded, infinitied. Scale has never meant much of anything in this franchise. And it just... baffles me sometimes why people insist on something that is almost a joke.

    I say this a lot, but there is a reason why TFWiki has scale in the category of "Things that do not exist"

    Having to take off an accessory or small piece is not partsforming.

    You wouldn't think this would be unpopular, bit the amount of people I have seen that are sour over Mixmaster's hood or Scrapmetal's shield would say otherwise.

    Taking a part off to go from one form to another is partsforming. The degree to which its acceptable varies, but it doesn't stop being what it is. Personally, I'm fine with weapons, combiner kibble, and partners (the -masters and the like), and barely tolerate minor things like your Devy examples. Not a fan of the likes of god bomber though

    People get too butt hurt over names. Call your toys whatever you want. Dont try to convince me otherwise. Frenzy is red, rumble is blue. The triceratops is Slag.

    The siege/earthrise leader class thing doesn't bother me at all
