Wait! Road Pig's wheels are red in the promotional images (infinite white background) and look way better on him than the black ones. Damn, why did they change that? 

And he's missing the Star Seeker insignia in his headlight.

I lost some more excitement for these Armorizers. Not only are they even more useless for their actual gimmicks than the Junkions, not only do they seem to not have a combined form but you can't even mix and match between the retools. I just got Nucleous the other day and thought to myself that it would be pretty cool to make multicolor figures form this mold. This goes back to my observation of Carcitron looking like Strongarm. If you actually mixed the parts up between Nucleous and Carcitron you can really get something that looks like Strongarm. Problem is though that nobody has Carcitron yet. However you can use Magneous instead right?

Right?

Nope.

As it turns out, the new parts on Nucleous are shaped different from Magneous/Carcitron. So while they all come apart in the same spots, you can't replace the parts other than the arms as those are exactly the same between all versions. 

The shins are shaped differently and can't be swapped as they just won't fit without modification. 

I then tried the side wheels and the 5mm ports are spaced differently. 

Then went onto the roof...which worked. That was until I tried to swap the weapons since the ones for Nucleous need to be with the roof to store properly since the roof has the cutaway for the weapon's handle to fit in. That and the slots that the weapons tab into are also spaced different on the feet. 

I'm sure taking the figures apart at the pins and screws will have better results but I don't want to do that. I was hoping to use the gimmick itself to do the swapping. That's the point isn't it?

These peaked at the Fossilizers and went downhill ever since. Fossilizers at the top followed by the Weaponizers, Modulators, Junkions and finally the Armorizers.

The Fossilizers work best when combining them in multiples or with more of themselves in both robot and alt modes.

The Weaponizers next as the majority of them are really good at combining in robot mode and have a bunch of useful pieces. However their alt modes combinations kinda suck for all of them.

The Modulators would be better but there's only two molds and well, the don't actually have alt modes which is extremely limiting. Building larger and larger bases are only so cool but their ability to combine in robot mode is incredible. I've made some amazing giants out of them.

Outside of Junkasaurus, the Junkions suck. They look good on their own and don't need to partsform to transform which should be a plus. But at that point, they might as well just have been a standard combiner team without the izer gimmick. 

And finally the Armorizers. They don't actually do much armorizing. Their parts really don't exactly do much for the gimmick and there's even more left over and useless parts than the Junkions had. They look even better than the Junkions on their own and again don't need to partsform to transform. It's just that without that voyager figure to try and make them some sort of combiner, these will continue to be the worst of the gimmick. What's worse is that they have the core class figures that actually can contribute to the gimmick if only just, unlike the Fossilizers, but without the actual combiner, these are now even worse as it's a huge tease at that point. Why make a weapon fit for a combiner out of one but then don't make a combiner out of them to utilize it?

I still want more Wingfinger redecos and retools. The fact that the best Fossilizer didn't get reused is a travesty. The same for Slammer who was the best of the Weaponizers. I hope Shard fairs better...even if I don't have one yet. It's just that there's three from the Magneous base mold and two from the Bouldercrash mold but only one from Shard so far. I'd say it was a coincidence that the female molds (from the start) were the ones that didn't get reused but Slammer is a dude...or is he? If anything it would need to be Sixgun as Wingfinger and Shard are also the only fliers of their groups as well. It wouldn't work for the Modulators unless one turned into a floating fortress or something. Axlegrease is female but she's the retool, not the original.

And it's kind of a shame that Ferak didn't come with a retool of Legacy Peacemaker so that he too could've had a replacement hand of some sort as Peacemaker can "hand on" with the Kingdom Cyclonus mold as you can leave the 5mm thruster as his hand. Not unlike the Universe Cyclonus mold the original Ferak toy was made from. Oh and also have Tornado in the process lol. As is, Ferak is the only Star Seeker so far that has all of their appendages. Oh and Filch too I guess but she's not normally a Star Seeker so I didn't count her. But I mean, her wings do pop off lol. And I guess if we're being technical, Lockdown has all of his as well but we all know nobody will display him like that and everyone will have the hook hand look.

I don't exactly know what I was expecting for a leader class Thundertron but this was not it. Maybe Tigerhawk redone as an upgraded Thundertron? But wouldn't that have just made it toys colors Tigerhawk? I just want a toy colors Tigerhawk I guess. The white with the actual blue and not the purple. 

Calcitron is so close to the original concept for that mold. So close but also so far. It's looking like Strongarm now though. Like one of those all blue Hasbro ones in the gimmick lines. I love that it matches Thundertron like Spindle matched Impactor.

And as odd as it sounds...I really wanted a Ratbat in these colors. I had gotten two of those Micromaster Generations Selects two packs with the two for Soundwave and the other two for Double Dealer. So after a while I decided to repaint the extra Frenzy into Enemy. I sold the extra Knok and Skar as despite having two Doubledealers I only wanted one set of "Powermasters" to go with them so one could have Knok and the other Skar. So that left me with an extra Wingthing that nobody wanted at the time. So I repainted him into Cybertron Sideways. I got a third to turn into the mass production version of Noisemaze but never got around to it. Meanwhile this is pretty much the colors I was going to use for that custom. It's just that the head is wrong. This is Ratbat's head and the custom only works with Wingthing's head as weird as that sounds. Wingthing's head has a distinct "V" in the middle of it. I was painting that up to be the visor face of the original Cybertron Sideways mold. I linked the characters though the WWI Senator Ratbat release from Universe that also used that mold. So I turned Sideways into another chest minion for Soundwave using Wingthing as a base. The orange helped as I just needed to use some black lol. Okay I used some silver and I even found that green too. The gold as well. 

But yeah, I wish Nightstrike had Wingthing's head.
