    Over the last month or so i've been transforming a few bots a night into alt mode. Seeing them all in alt mode looks pretty damn cool

    And here's where i'm at with the Autobots

    I've decided to photograph them all before transforming them back. So this is a thread to celebrate that often overlooked mode.

    Starting with Masterpiece Tracks

    I've taken images of some alt modes a while back for one of Tailgate's "alt mode parties" (ironically no Tailgate).

    It really made me appreciate the effort that goes into shaping the disguise (and realize how much of a daunting task it is to even convert so many toys into their alt modes and back to robot mode after taking in how much space they suddenly take up).

    Man, and I just put most of my MP's in a display at my local library. I have to say that my favorite car is Smokescreen, favorite aircraft is FT Skyfire and FT Sludge over all. I'll take some pics later on down the road.

    Great idea for a thread! Alt modes get way too overlooked, imo.

    My photography skills aren't great and my collection room is a mess right now since we're in the process of moving, so I'm just gonna sit back and enjoy the pics. :cool: 

    Spike's got quite the booty!

    Maketoys' Technobots are so cool in their alternate modes.

    [​IMG]

    And of course these Dinobots are lovely.

    [​IMG]

    If only these guys were more pleasant to get between modes...

    And let's finish this for now with a metal monkey!

    [​IMG]

    Well, ape. :lol

    TR Scourge's alt mode is absolutely awesome and totally better than his robot mode, much like TR Skullcruncher.
