    My 6 year old son is constantly finding new things to transform his transformers into, ... alternate alt modes. Example, Alternators Ricochet makes a good space ship. Excellion (the little cyberton one) makes a good speed boat!

    Does anyone else do this too? Maybe there should there be a contest or at least Gallery for it? :)

    I sometimes do what megatroptimus did with Movie Scorponok: make the tail flat, hide the head, make sure the stopper on the stinger is pointing forward and position the arms however you like to make a Cybertronian Jet

    I turn G1 Scorponok into a starship of sorts, I normally move the tail up between the pincers.

    (Trying click-able thumbnail code here)

    I figured old Scorponok needed to get around, but a flying scorpion or "base" didn't cut it.

    Best alternate transformation ever. I don't even remember how to transform it properly anymore.

    All the Alt Alt modes for Menasor are the best. His real alt mode is pretty sucky.

    Try Cyb Scrapmetal, the bot of a thousand modes. (not designed by me)
    Theres Movie Scorponok's kaiju mode (not designed by me)

    You can get some pretty good base modes out of Armada/Energon Tidal Wave.
    Also, Combine Tidal Wave's 3 vehicles in vehicle mode, flip out the handle on the middle piece. Viola, Giant Skyboom shield.

    Also, theres my Energon Shockblasts Dragon mode.

    I've also got step by step pics, but I doubt anyone wants those.

    I created a flying car mode for Bugbite that's pretty cool. Reminds me of G1 Tracks. I'll take pics.

    For a second there I thought that was Blackarachnia. :confused:

    Although it doesn't seem to be up anymore, there was a page that had 162 modes for Devil Gigatron (RiD Galvatron)

    The small Cybertron Optimus Prime makes a good "monster" because his shoulder pads and his hands "open up" for a mouth when they are folded back together.

    Hehe, I try to find Alternate alt modes when I get bored.

    Sometimes they turn out nice, but I can't recall any specifically.
