Catch more Transformers: The Basics on Chris McFeely’s YouTube channel.
From the comment I made on this video:
What I love is that Transformers can be almost anything. Even Pretender shells are useful for disguise depending on the continuity, while the various Masters give us a human who can interact with other humans and help out the Autobots that way as well as linking up for battle. The alt mode could be for disguise, as an advantage in battle, or benefit in other tasks. It’s a great concept to explore.
