    You're a Transformer who has just landed/crashed on Earth. What would you choose as your alt mode and why? Would you scan a Car? Truck? Jet? Lawn mower? Space Shuttle?

    Maybe go the Beast Wars route and scan an animal? You decide!

    I'd first scan something nondescript for the purposes of concealment while I lie low and plan, like an everyday truck or automobile. Then, once I conduct enough research on my new surroundings, I'd then pick a powerful military vehicle like a tank or fighter plane.

    That's a funny question, I'll answer in a Earth Vehicle and a flying vehicle:

    I [being the motorcycle aficionado I am] would likely scan a badass Harley Davdison to drive around, besides being Badass, it would be good for pursues [due its sheer speed and "thin" design, enabling me to pursue the evil 'Cons across narrow structures], it would also be awesome for escape routes when outnumbered.
    For last, would allow me to be escape/invade without being noticed too much [I know, a HARLEY FUCKING DAVIDSON, but it's way subtler than a goddamn red and blue truck crossing the streets].

    In the skies, I'd go for a Blackbird, it's a stealthy badass ship, would be just transform and land on my enemies to bring their DOOM before they even realize!

    I hope those two vehicles are avaliable at the TF MMO we'll have.

    As much as I would love to say fighter jet because the Seekers are my favorite sub-group and it would be awesome to be that kind of flying weapon machine, I don't think it's actually a good disguise. Mainly because F-15's and F-22's (or ANY military vehicle) couldn't fly around for more than 2 minutes before the entire world military would be like "WTF!? Who's jet is that!?". That's what sort of bugged me about the live action movie as well. In TF1, Starscream casually rolls away from an Air Force base completely undetected. No way. The minute that plane started rolling, there would be a dozen guys all over it demanding to know where it's going. And yes, sadly, I realize how uber-nerd that all sounds... :) 

    So having said that, I'd aim for something that could actually blend in. Probably a sports car of some sort - Audi TT, the new Dodge Challenger or a classic muscle car.

    Beast Mode: Crab.
    I know, right!?

    [​IMG]

    Vehicle Mode: Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Modified for Storm chasing. Er. . . minus all the decals :D 
    And since Mako Crab doesn't really work for a vehicle mode, my name would be Stormchaser.
