Never made the connection? Well the original G1 figure came with a turret which when he goes into godzilla mode are his spare parts. And those form the little turret-tank. It is the 5 parts, the 2 rear "buildings" the middle turret and 2 of the front flank parts. Together they make the drone. Now that they released all the titans, without their minions. They decided to do this in advance for Trypticon no doubt. With Metroplex I don't think so. But with Fort Max it seemed more clear. And now with Trypticon even more, since the turret is something Iconic from his original base mode. Not my image but this is what he is. The drone from Trypticon. Regardless of what it "screams" to you. Besides we already have a Tankor figure from the T30 line of Generations. Also who I am looking out for is FastTrack. My bet is he will be the last of these parts-formers and a tease for what is to come in the next line. At least it is what I expect.... He is the drone that came with the G1 Scorponok toy. Made up of several parts.
