Weird thing that's been bugging me but always forgot to ask and related to this thread:mp-12-and-mp-14-packaging-variant-t93313.php
For anybody in the know, when a TF toy gets assembled in the factory, does it first appear in the robot form then vehicle mode? Like, do the workers then manhandle the item and transform them to the vehicle mode or vice versa?
Same thing like the Yamato Valkyries. Are they first assembled in bot mode then to their awesome jet mode?
I just completed after 30 years, G1 Season1 and 2 Decepticons!
My Transformers purchasing habits
1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)

I never ever thought of that. I thought you were meaning which form showed up in package on shelves first, and that varied from figure to figure I think. Might be something similar with construction, but yeah, an interesting thing to think on.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I'd be inclined to think robot, then transformed into car etc. I'm thinking: how else would you get all the intricate parts if it was assembled in alt mode?
Good question, Fenrir, good question

I would think robot mode is easier to assemble, as it's less compact than the vehicle (in most cases) and the assemblers can get the the joints and small parts easier.

I would think it's assembled in a hybrid state. If you take your robot and open up all the panels (like the panel that conceals the hand when folded in) then that's probably what it would look like.
