    So I'm feeling inspired by Bob evans' "Best Transformation" thread so I thought I'd create a thread about the "Best Transformation Sound". And we all know that when it comes to the sound effects of the films, they're nothing short of amazing. Since there's so many different sounds to choose from, I'm not going to make a poll, however y'all can choose how many you want. Personally, for me, Megatron and Lockdowns transformation sounds are the best in the series. They're just so satisfying to listen to especially that "Ting tong ting" sound Megatron makes.

    autobot? you know, i really liked the twins' effect

    decepticon? hm...ive gotta say, i found soundwave's transformation into his vehicle mode to be quite interesting as well

    also, pretty impressive that pretty much every named transformer has a unique sounding transformation

    I've always loved Barricade's first car to robot transformation sound, followed by his growl.

    For some reason, Starscream's transformation effect really sticks out for me. Just that feeling of being agile in the sky.

    Megatron comes second... I like how aggressive the transformation sound effect is.

    I can't really separate them in my mind, but they always sound really cool, especially the ones with a little cheeky G1 sound chucked in.

    I'd love to have the job of making those sounds, i have a bit of a thing with guitar pedals, I can spend hours tweaking and listening to my chain hum without even plugging in a guitar!

    I've always noticed this, but somehow never realized, that Bonecrusher cups Optimus' bum with his hand, as he tackles him.

    I've always liked Bee, Megatron, OP, Starscream, Sideswipe, Soundwave, Dino, Barricade and Hot Rod's transformation. I also like Drift's sword-like transformation sound

    barricade is the one that stands out the most for me.

    i even think he had a bit of that sound when he transforms to speak to megs in tlk. very brief though.

    oh and blackout because of that classic transformers sound effect right after he folds his wings back.

    In The Last Knight, I must say, I quite enjoyed the sound Bumblebee's parts make, when he begins to come together. It's such a fun sound, and you can hear it, when the camera is looking at Santos asking: "what was that?", and at Cade, as he answers him. I'd describe the sound as a talking, unwinding spring.

    Absolutely DotM Soundwave. Such an interesting sound effect and it's a cool conversion too. 2:39

    I also liked the sounds on MV1 Prime and Starscream taking off during the Mission City Battle after whooping Ironhide and Ratchet's asses after a few runs.

    Even if you hate the films, you can't deny that they gave great sound effects to the Transformers whenever they transform.

    Lockdown and Starscream.

    The off-screen transformation sound he makes after he kills Ratchet is pure sex.

    @4:49


    The fact that each TF has their own transformation sound is one of the Bayverse's best touches.

    That low growling-like sound that he makes when he comes up to the surface of the water.
