    I've noticed this with two figures so far (might be more don't know) studio series grimlock has the upper head of his dinosaur mode on each shoulder in robot mode one just splits and folds in the T-Rex mode and the other other is Spinister who has a helicopter cockpit on each leg rather than half of one one each lego like'd you'd probably expect(this one kind of bugs me since it's a pain to get the legs into the correct position for transformation and it leaves an annoying little gap at the front of the lower cockpit that could've been nicely filled with a gun or something). Are their any more examples of this kind of thing or is it just those two so far?

    It's probably the easiest route to take while fitting the design within the budget their given and adhering to what the robot silhouette should look like.
