Except that you've contradicted yourself there. Rescuplting a head is rescuplting a part of the figure. Granted this skates on the thin edge of sculpting accessories, however the crane in this case is as integral a part of the vehicle mode as the head is part of the robot mode.
Also bear in mind that head sculpting didn't originally happen either, until there was a need for it. Well now there's a need to do the same with an accessory that would form an integral part of the vehicle mode.
The only time a new part other than a head was made was for BotCon 2007 Thrust, he got a new set of wings and tail fins, including the VTOL fans. Thrust's wings were so radically different from the basic Seeker wings and Ramjet's, they decided that between Thrust and Dirge, Thrust should be the one getting the new parts. Now, we have the Gentei/Generations wing set for the both of them. Go figure.
What they basically do is not retool the base mold, rather they create a whole new mold for the head alone. And that's not cheap either. Since larger parts cost more to make, plus since Hoist has been a pickup before (think Universe Spychanger and the more recent GDO Legend) I can live with Hoist not having a crane assembly this time around.
Plus, G2 Electro!
