We could rephrase it slightly. But I am incredibly sceptical as to the level of involvement from Dery, and would rather his name is left out entirely until we get something approaching proof that this man designed so many models and just didn't mention it for so long.

Most of the original character models are simplified versions of the Diaclone box art with only minimal changes anyway. Marvel's only real experience with this sort of thing before was probably Shogun Warriors, where the art seems to have been drawn from the toys - the SW figures were robot-first, though, so the results are fine. It could just be that it took Marvel a little time to realise the idea was unworkable. I dunno, any solid facts to any of it? Easiest thing might be to just cut out the character model stuff in the first place.
