    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.

    I prefer the smaller CV Shockwave to Seige Shockwave. The little guy has personality and QC wise, is one of the line's best figures.

    I wish every figure was in vehicle scale to G1 Prowl.

    It makes things more interesting when the Seekers and individual Constructicons tower over the Autobot cars in robot mode and the original Decepticons don't seem so outnumbered.

    Red eyes = bad and blue eyes = good is stupid. That's what the big purple and red badges is for. Shockwave, Soundwave, and Optimus always look their best with yellow. Gimme the orange and green and purple eyes, I miss the diverse eye colors.
