    Okay, regarding Fastlane and Cloudraker, all 3-changers are an air and land vehicle.
    But for Pounce and Wingspan, would it be possible to create a robot-flying animal-land animal?
    Heck, even the 6-changers have only one animal form.

    Would anyone buy a triple changer animal?

    In the past I've also suggested that the duocons & 1987 clones get turned into new toys tripple changers.

    Car Robots Gigatron had a few beast modes.

    Hasbro & Takara have already released several tripple changers with a beast mode. the 1987 Horrorcons apeface & snapdragon. 1988 Double powermaster tripple changer Double dealer. The Beast Wars Transmetal 1 toys. Beastwars Optimal Optimus. 1986 Trypticon was a tripple changer. 1987 Hungurr,Razorclaw & Snaptrap were combiners & all combiners have Three modes of conversion.

    Yes, but they only had one animal mode.
    I wanted 2 animal modes in one robot:

    Bi-pedal robot/winged animal/4-legged animal. Like if Pounce and Wingspans modes were one robot.

    Beast Wars Mutants? Or Beast Machines Noble Savage?

    Do the clones count as triple changers? Each one only has two modes.

    What about Sixshot? A lot of people count his winged panther mode as a separate mode.

    Transquito's probably the closest we got to a triple-changer bot with two beast modes. His "attack mode" is close enough to a whip spider to count, I think; it's even got a distinct face.

    The OP is basically suggesting the clones be retconned into triplechangers, for Classics purposes I believe.

    There's a six changer from a vintage Japanese transforming-robot franchise (or izzit TF Brave line) with two or more animal modes . One of the being the griffin (simply switch the head + sprout wings from his other animal "tiger" mode)

    Ebay:
    If you are expecting good looking organic animals, not going to happen. BW Mutations was an animal turing into another one and they didn't look correct because of needing to form the other animal. Now throw even more modes in there and it'll just be a mess. Maybe if you can accept a robotic animal, it might be duable since those can fudge a little more then a organic animal can.

    Get one of those drone guys from Cybertron. Those can fan mode about 40 things and many of them were animals. There is images somewhere.

    I've always thought of Tigerhawk as a semi triple changer..

    I don't like this idea.

    Why not?
    You have two vehicle modes for triple changers; why not two animal modes?
