    Anyone else love the diversity that the robots show?

    That was one thing that sold me quickly; no repeated classes, once CJ was outta the picture.

    Also, is Bulkhead a SUV or a SUT? Can't figure that one out.

    Diversity is cool, but Prime isn't really the first to do that. All past series had a nice number of different alt modes in the main cast.

    I think Bulkhead is a SUV.

    And what Shroobmaster said. All TF series had characters in a wide variety of alt-modes.

    Well except for the Decepticon troops. And Cliff was actually his own unique model.

    True. Point is that he was a Muscle Car like BB. But he fit the class better. BB would work as a compact. But since Prime is based on the movies, BB is a Camaro.

    At least he draws attention, rather than just blending in.

    They were barely similar.

    Your name should be SPLIT HAIR. I got his point just fine.

    I like how their alt modes are less inconspicuous then say, the movie-verse, where they have a whole convoy of the flashiest cars that aren't even out on the markets yet. :lol

    Really you think so? Because if I saw team prime rolling down the main street of town together in alt mode I'm pretty sure they would turn heads...

    yea, and why are they all stuck behind that SLOW moving truck :lol 

    i think if any one saw the "convoy" from the movie, some one would think the president of GM was in town or something, or there was an autoshow! :lol

    In Convoy, their disguises were enough to fool the MECH guys for awhile. You do have a good point though. I just think team prime kinda blend in better...just not all together in a cluster aha :)

    P.S. Even if the vehicle mode is "shiny", anything is still a better disguise than GIANT ALIEN ROBOT.


    Just saying.

    Their disguises are very good (since for the most part they aren't glossy), and I've seen a three vehicle group that I swear to god looked like Silverstreak, Gears, and Trailbreaker. So yes, they blend in well.

    And what does bulkhead turn into? Seems very generic, where as you can tell somewhat with BB, Prime and Ratchet.

    When the OP mentioned Class I think he meant toys size.

    Arcee-scout
    BB-Deluxe
    Ratchet - voyager
    Bulkhead - ultra
    Prime - Leader

    See? No repeats like the OP said lol

    Not what I was thinking. When I said class, I meant class of vehicle. Here's what I mean:
    Arcee: Performance Bike (Saw a bike that was White/Pink/Blue the other day, reminded me of her)
    Bumblebee: Muscle car (Camaro)
    Bulkhead: SUV/SUT (Hard to tell)
    Ratchet: Medical Vehicle (Not sure if he's an ambulance because we haven't seen the inside of his vehicle mode)
    Prime: Sleeper Longnose Semi-Trailer Cab (Okay, technically you only need to use the last bit, but I'm a Car Wars geek, hence the full terminology)
    Wheeljack: Performance Car (Probably a Vauxhall VXR)
    Cliffjumper: Classic Muscle Car (60s Charger, right?)
    Soundwave: UAV (Predator, right?)
    Starscream: Cybertronian interceptor (Not a fighter, too small)
    Knockout: Supercar (Aston-Martin at that)
    Breakdown: SWAT Van (Nice a bulky)
    Megatron: Cybertronian Fighter-Bomber (Too big to be a fighter, too small to be a bomber)
    Troopers: Coupes (Cadillacs too)
    Eradicons: Cybertronian Fighters
    Skyquake: F35 (Right? About the right size to me)
    Airachnid: ??? (No vehicle mode yet)
