    I think for the next installment they should add 1 and possibly 2 more autobots, who's alternate vehicle mode is that of some kind of rescue vehicle.

    They are Soooooooo many AWESOME looking fire trucks and search and rescue cars/vehicles out there.

    Rather than "just" sweet vehicles, they should have autobots be more, police cars, fire trucks, and also sweet vehicles too. But MORE "protectobot type" bots.

    Kind of like how most deceptions are construction or war machines.

    Thoughts?

    Could lead to an awesome combiner too? Although I WANT to see omega supreme in the next one... BAD!

    Protectobots vs. Stunticons gets my vote.

    I honestly thought that the firetruck from TF2, when BB sets the house on fire, was going to be Inferno

    Yeah, we could use Inferno and Grapple. In fact, if you took that crane thing from Terminator 3...that would be a great one for Grapple.

    I agree, and I'd like to see something similar to the comics/cartoons where the Autobots would rescue some humans in collapsed or destroyed buildings. Plus, 2-3 (Inferno, Grapple and Hoist for example) big rescue-orientated alt. modes would allow for some very large Autobots to be introduced, to contrast with the small or medium-sized Autobots that already exist (Prime excepted). It'd be good to see some Autobots that can match up size-wise to the movie-verse Decepticons. I wouldn't mind seeing some decent fire engine (and other rescue vehicle) alts. if someone has some good examples.

    I'd like Inferno as a big chromed-up firetruck.

    They could use one or two bigger autobots. Maybe Ultra Magnus or Bulkhead or dinobots. But they should keep it focused and not go overboard.

    One of those armoured police vehicles (like the one in Die Hard) would make a good Transformer.

    I'm all for a Firetruck. Especially if the ladder turns into some kind of weapon, like a huge sword.

    Hint, hint...

    Fire trucks and rescue vehicles just fit that Autobot sort of personality so well it is a shame they haven't used more of them in the film. A fire truck would make for a nice big Autobot and since Bay showed he can do some really neat stuff with lighting now all that chrome might make for some interesting shots in the third film.

    While on the topic though could they please please please pick a better color for Ratchet. Yes it's the rescue color for somewhere but it's not a common color for rescue vehicles so maybe now that the films are breaking away from GM it's time for Ratchet to scan something cooler to turn into.

    Agreed on the ratchet comment id love to see him scan a rescue truck or even a ambulance.... the hummers going out fast so it would be cool to see him take a new form of some sort. Doubht it will happen though.

    How about a fire truck named Cab? Or a police car named GoShoter? Or any one from Masterforce? No one remembers Master force. :(

    I would love to see the Protectobots. Red Alert as an ambulance and Inferno as a fire truck. Prowl as a Dodge Police car

    You are now envisioning a highway battle scene in which Ultra Magnus transforms, the trailer reconfigures into extra armor, and he unloads Sideswipe from the top rack for a "fastball special".

    The hummer is going out of style as a civilian vehicle. It still makes sense for a rescue vehicle to be one.

    Also people need to get over the green. He's a green rescue vehicle. Deal with it. I very much doubt that they are going to change Ratchet in the third(And possibly last.) film, for no reason.
