A combiner with a limp?

Your photos make it appear as if a combiner built on Grind Rod and Aurora would have one leg longer than the other. Is that right, or is it just the angle of the shots? Not to say that the attaching parts couldn't be different lengths, but how strange would that be? And it's it still the case that a combined mode is only a rumor, anyhow?

You are correct... unless

You are correct... unless there is more to the leg transformation, the peg holes are not at the same height. It's hard to say at this point how any of this combining is going to work.

Maybe it's a really elaborate version of those old Micromaster combiners like Six Turbo.

Bot Throttler

I get the impression that if there is a combined form, it will require quite a bit of parts-forming and the extra pieces will come with the final team member. This could mean additional thigh sections that compensate for the slight difference in leg lengths. The trouble is, the third member of this team has just been revealed (pics on BBTS) and he looks nothing like either the G1 Throttlebots or Grind Rod and Aurora at all.

True, but not-Chase looks

True, but not-Chase looks fantastic. If these guys never combine, I probably won't mind.
