BT toys, construction compared to G1 counterparts

You do have a point tman regarding sideswipes hood, however, his feet suck in my opinion, with overdrive they put those little red vents on the side to help balance, however with sideswipe, they just seem to get in the way.  And to my good buddies Nevermore and splendic, bite my big shiny metal ass, sound good?  Hows that breath now?

I don't see any reason to keep the G1 transformation schemes. The G1 transformation schemes were designed for specific cars, and what worked for one car may not work with another. (One reason why Sideswipe is no longer a hood-chest bot, for instance.) Anyway, the Alt/BT line is a G1 homage line, not a replication of G1 (that would be the "Masterpiece" line, such as it is).

 

BTW, don't expect to make a lot of friends here if you show up with a chip on your shoulder. Lose the attitude or else it's gonna be :wave for you.

 

And just to be on the safe side:

Part of the reason why some molds don't match the character is due to the constant shifting of characters from mold to mold. At one time Tracks was going to be the Viper, Windcharger was originally going to be a Mustang, and so on.

One reason they probably went with a new mold for prowl is probably because of how long Smokescreen sat on the shelf. Prowl is also more of a major character Being semi second in command. If the Viper Sideswipe would have kept his G1 transformation scheme he would have looked dumb with his hood hanging down to his knees like a poncho.

Yes, I would guess that most people would not be to gung-ho on another version of Smokescreen... And think about How many people wouldn't buy him because of thier Kitbashes.
