    BadCube, and it is their most annoying figure to transform into vehicle mode (however, I have never actually handled Warpath, so he may be in the running).

    He does look amazing as a robot, though, and has very nice articulation at least for Gears and his giant head).

    I agree, Hound is a bit oversized, but the difference doesnt bother me as much as Gears does. I'd even be ok if Grump was the same size as Brawny in alt mode.

    I think I'm one of the minority who would rather have a closer to real world alt mode scale than bot mode. as much as I watched the shows when I was younger, I don't have that connection to their bot mode sizes and cartoon aesthetics that most people do.

    I'd love to see Gears as this:

    Saw a review. I like the altmode as well. Quite a nice touch from nonexistant one. IF some of those are still around by the end of the year......

    That would be a great alt mode.

    I have a list, have no idea where it originally came from, of the actual vehicles that the original Arkbot alt modes were based on.

    Optimus Prime - Freightliner COE 1980
    Ironhide - 1980 Nissan Onebox Cherry Vanette
    Ratchet - Nissan Onebox Ambulance Vanette
    Prowl - Datsun Fairlady 280ZX Police Cruiser
    Bluestreak - Datsun Fairlady 280ZX
    Sideswipe - Lamborghini Countach LP500S
    Sunstreaker - Lamborghini Countach LP500S (electronic propulsion)
    Jazz - 1981 Porsche 935 Turbo
    Cliffjumper - Porsche Turbo 924
    Bumblebee - Classic Volkswagen Beetle
    Windcharger - Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
    Hound - Mitsubishi J59 Jeep
    Mirage - Ligier JS11 Formula 1 Racer
    Brawn - Land Rover Defender 4x4
    Gears - 4X4 Truck
    Trailbreaker - Toyota Hi-Lux 4WD
    Wheeljack - Lancia Stratos Turbo #539 "Alitallia"
    Huffer - Semi-Tractor

    -Alright... okay then. Let me run through the line-up here. See if I know the who's who of this here convoy.
    =Certainly.
    - And no help from you...
    =Wouldn't dream of it.
    -... Because it wouldn't be fair to me or them.
    =Neither as fair nor as funny.
    -Gotta do this on my own.
    =Of course.
    -Okay... Let me see, we have the easy ones Good Prime... And Evil Prime.
    =Uh-huh...
    -And... Let me think here a minute... Not Prime!
    =... ... okay.
    -Aaaannnnd... Super-sized Prime.
    =...
    -Finally, my favorite, Monkey Prime! Yes! Perfect score.
    =Quite impressive.
    -Thanks, you know, I even studied with Gears for this.
    =It shows...
    -'Cause nailed it, right?
    =Not even close.
    -What?
    =Yep, you got every one of them wrong.
    -What? I know I got Monkey Prime right. I love that guy!
    =He's not even a monkey.
    -Wait, what? Oh, because he's really a robot... good one, Swipe.
    =... ... Sure. See there, even smarter than you were five minutes ago! Anyway, we'll pick this up later. Go on back to the commons, see about getting those intakes shined up. You've earned it.
    -Thanks, Swipe, you really are a good brother.
    =Yeah... yup... Gotta make sure something on you is bright.

    Yeah I'd prefer if the carbots all stuck to a realistic car scale among one another, at least roughly. The minibots currently available are all over the place on that. Badcube isn't even in scale with Badcube! But I guess they're worrying more about the bot scale.

    The Quintessons are regretting their most recent inter-dimensional experiment, as the resulting portal brought together 2 different time lines in which the mighty Reximus Prime and Grimlock, leader of the Dinobots, coincidentally possess exactly the same feelings toward their five faced creators.

    A chance meeting on a rather stormy, disagreeable day, Soundwave's scouts have encountered a pair of terrors- loyal only to Galvatron and equally enthusiastic in proving their worth.

    Its Minicons vs Nebulon in a twin battle to the death.
