    Mold, obviously, since Cybertron Unicron was toy-only and we haven't seen DOTM yet.

    WFC Megatron is my favorite robot of all those, but as far as the tank modes...uh. Yeah. "Uh" is all I can muster.

    The deluxe Unicron was always my favorite Cybertronian tank. WfC Megatron takes a close second, and that's mainly because it resembles the hover tanks from the Macross saga.

    Didn't TFTM Brawl have a pretty cool tank mode? or is that not alien enough?

    Not alien at all you mean. :) 

    I think my favorite is Unicron as well. Liking the overall shape, the gimmicks... and the character. Cool transformation too.

    Can Unicron's tank mode even be considered Cybertronian since y'know, he's not from Cybertron?:sly2:

    No, I mean not alien at all.

    It has multiple turrets, making it pretty unrealistic in that sense, to me =)

    Animated Shockwave is awesome. Going back to G1, I still love Hardhead's tank mode.

    Leader class RotF Megatron. His tank mode is huge and powerful looking.

    None of the Above...

    BM Tankor is the best of the lot....
    Cybertronian? Check.
    Awesome? Check?
    Great posibility and alt mode? Check.

    Therefore I say Tankor!
