I mean, I thought there was a time when autobots where more likely to be automobiles like cars ans trucks. and decepticons, being the warmongers they are, would be more likely to be tanks or other military vehicles.
The Autobots haven't been car & truck exclusive since the very first year of G1. Neither side had a tank until year two when the cons got Blitzwing and the bots got Warpath AND Omega Supreme.
Granted the cons did have a gun and three fighter jets right from the get go, so you're not totally wrong, I just thought it funny after I thought about it and realized the bots started out with more tanks.
Also, these days anyway, there's usually a way to attach weapons to the car/truck mode and/or some sort of attack mode, so is it really any less of a "war vehicle" if you've got a huge-ass cannon on the roof of a racecar? ;
and I should say I wish there were more scout class figures these days... but i think they are gone for good, or getting close to it anyway. I'm begining to miss all the different figures in that scale I wanted to get.
Basically replaced by Cyberverse commanders, though they seem to be a "downsizing" more between scouts and legends than full scout replacements. They're pretty nice, though, at least the few I have.
Cyberverse legion, though, I can't say I care for, they seem really cheap (in quality, not price) compared to the old legends. I only have a few, but I was pretty disappointed in comparison.
