What, no Parts-forming?

I Always thought it was odd that the transformers movies had NO parts-formers. NO Jetfire's combination doesn't count, and if you count Devistator because his components never transformed, then I guess he kinda counts in an odd way, but still, with all the complexity of the live action films, don't you think that, if added in at the right times with the right characters, it could work? It would probably bring UP the complexity, and make the toys easier to make? IDK, It's all Speculation and opinion. Still, what do you think about parts-forming? After playing WFC, do you like a partsforming omega supreme more than a fully transformable version? I also feel parts-forming, esp. on the live action scale could bring ALOT more variety to the robots. At least throw in a duo-con or two. Should partsformers ever be a part of the live action franchise? Thoughts?

Personally,i dont like parts-forming,i dont think it works well outside of combiners.
(one of the reasons i dont like much of God Bomber nad FP City commander).How would it work in live action?
Though you could count Skids and Mudflap.

their were a few parts formers in the takara movie verse toy lines. like bumblebee & optimus that came in robotic skeleton form & had their alt modes pieces get added on the robot modes.

IMHO,DA-15 Jetwing prime would be considered a parts former.

What I mean is, A robot that has a core bot mode, right? But in order to complete his form, he needs, oh say, his trailer? Or something like that. DOTM megatron is possably a parts-former, seeing as how he's a truck'n'trailer combo, but you never see the two seperate. The Cyberverse toy makes good use of this, but it's un-realistc in comparison to the voyager, and the overall movie design. But again, not about toys, but movies. What if they brought in thunderwing? Isn't he a partsformer in a sense?

IMHO,As far as the movie verse goes in the CGI Footage. I'd say DOTM Optimus primes tailer counts as a parts former object/thing. IMHO,I'd say the jetwing armor that comes out of the trailer & attaches to optimus prime in the movie counts as a parts former object/thing.

Parts-forming as in parts fly off from one mode and reattached onto the other mode? I could see ILM making it look good, but I can't see that being something they want to do. There are already quite a few visual cheats going on (an inevitability with animating TFs), and I'm sure they've already had certain parts vanish only to reappear somewhere else (i.e. parts-forming).


Given that it forms his legs, Megatron's trailer is probably permanently attached. Much like G1 Motormaster.
Optimus's trailer is more along the lines of an accessory, not really parts-forming.
