But I'm also suspicious of the fact that some of the alt modes don't look like they actually work with the robot modes.
The alt mode on this one is obviously taken from the classic Raideen Godbird mode:
But the body design sort of looks like a cross between something from Gundam

It could be that none of those were ment to be "Transforming" robots.
It could be that the ships are either "armor" for the robots or vehicles for them to ride or use.
Either way I was hopeing I could finally find some concrete answers.
