Even the pretenders did stuff with the arms and legs, even if it was just to fold them to the sides of the resulting vehicle. That’s how low the standards were at the time and the Monstructor components don’t even reach that level.

They’re so crap that the plastics used in creating them gained sentience for the sole purpose to perceive that they’re crap and knowing that made then want to put themselves out of their misery.

I have a G1 Landmine which is every bit as crap as has been said. I also got Pretender Bumblebee which I thought was pretty good.

I didn't get the Pretenders for Grimlock, Jazz or Starscream. But they did sell the characters separately from the shells and I did get those. They...weren't great. But for those who missed out getting the originals, it was something.

In retrospect, I guess it was a sign of how far the line was sliding. Pretenders, micro-masters...there were signs well before Action Masters. As a kid, I seemed to miss them all.

Oh god, I just remembered what this thing's face and soulless eyes reminded me of.

We really owe the AOE designs an apology. Another one turns out to be totally physically possible.

Seeing how the main cast transform off-screen like 90% of the time, the CSI dudes not being far off from the average movie robots and mostly being reused models, the transformium crap was most likely just a way to cheap out on the animation budget. The designs weren’t any more impossible than the older movies.

I was hope'n for at least combiner wars levels of combinerness from any eventual monstructor... oh well. maybe next time. it's not like I'm not still going to be buying these things in my 60s so, I'll just look forward to seeing one after I start getting my pension lol

The Monstructor dudes have two winged four-legged things and the Dinobots none. The sixth Dinobot in the combination could theoretically be a winged four legged thing and be used twice but I wouldn’t bet on it. They’d still be short three squat bipedal things anyhow, two of which form vital parts of the combiner and both of which already revealed to be taken by quadrupeds.

Then again, after they inexplicably cheaped out on Breakdown but went all-in on Jhiaxus and hugging Road Rocket, anything’s on the table

They put a lot of work into Piranacon, so I'm willing to entertain a sliver of hope. Not placing any wagers, but I can dream.

Huh, a cheap, decent-looking Sixshot that isn't absurdly huge for the new generations scale? Think I'll grab one.

Tank mode is worse than usual but the car mode actually sort of looks like a truck in this one. I actually like the slimmer proportions and non-giganticness for someone who's supposed to be a ninja consultant.

Fanstoys stans are on a whole different level.
“They only made figures of these characters that traditionally combine and they showed off renders of the combined form alongside the figures. You can’t expect that the toys would combine!”

FT totally never intended them to combine! The combiner renders they showed off to everyone at conventions was just preproduction. They never said that they would combine and showing off a combiner render is just a coincidence. These are totally legitimate and non-shady business practices btw. Stop being entitled and demanding of something that FT lead you on with!

They also never said how long it would take, so there was no reason to expect them to be done by now. Sure other companies have brought combiners from announcement to completion in the meantime, but it's not a fair comparison. It takes time to design all the spaghetti linkages that go into a FT transformation.
