    With the talks between Chrysler and GM accelerating for a possible merger, we have the possibility of even more brands and vehicles for the TFs to be. Assuming that some models aren't discontinued forever, could Hound be an actual Jeep? Could we have Sunstreaker as a possible Dodge Viper, a la Alternators? What do you guys think? We have Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge nameplates possibly adding to GM's collection and GM possibly selling off Hummer. What do you guys think?

    I like where you are going with this. :) 

    That would be sweet to see hound as one of the new Jeeps.

    To be honest about it though Im shocked the Movie Verse didnt nix the GM exclusive deal in favor of advertising dollars from multiple car manufacturers. Honda Toyota etc etc. Im sure they would all bid on trying to get that piece of the pie. Its a 2 hour long advertisement with out having to really feel like one. You cant get better than that.

    Man tell me a 350z version of smokescreen wouldnt be awesome. That would be rediculously awesome

    Since the deal wasn't in by the time they were filming on part 2 then there just will not be time to work it in for the second film. Now for the third film though I could really see them going there since they will want to push all the brands of the combined company.

    Sounds like it could be a big win for the fans since it gives them way more choices of alt modes than we have right now.

    I like the idea. I love the GM name and think it's awesome that THEY ARE TAKING OVER!!! *Ahem* But looking into this deal hurts because, AGAIN, the economy and job cuts come into effect here. Now, I don't want to get too deeply into the serious stuff, so I'll say this...

    Yes, I'd love a GM Jeep Hound.

    And anything fast as a Viper. *Drool*

    but GM was only looking at Chrysler, cause Dodge still has Jeep and Sold Chrysler awhile ago. so it would only be Chrysler Vehicels, NOt Dodge or Jeep. but that still doesnt mean that Bay cant go and still see if he cant use Dodges or Jeeps Vehicels.

    Cool--I'm guessing if Hot Rod makes a movie appearance, you can almost take bets on what he'll be (Viper).

    Nothing, right now. ... Well, MAYBE something in CG at the end of the film... but for a huge representation of the Chrysler family, it would be in Movie 3...

    Though, that's IF the merger goes through...

    Alright, so Chrysler COULD BE sold off in chunks, but I think GM is really interested in acquiring all of Chrysler. They seem to have their eyes on the Jeep group, so for now, I think it's safe to say the whole family.

    But man... the Viper and the Corvette in the same family... :drool:

    Fingers crossed for the whole family and not just part of the family because if they continue the movie franchise trend that means even more money for part 3 which would mean even more money for more robots which would mean more alt modes to fill.

    Or it's just that I can be crazy wishful hopeful that way some times.

    YEAH!!! Hound has GOT to be a Jeep! A green Jeep! I don't care what model, but he has to be a Jeep!

    And I'm glad somebody brought up the talk that Chrysler and GM are going to possibly merge. I heard my dad and brother talk about it last night, and I was like "WHA?!"
