    What type of vehicle is scattershot? They are supposed to be disguised as Earth vehicles yet I never seen a car/truck like that. How is that a robot in disguise?

    And in Galaxy Force (I haven't watched Cybertron) Convoy comments on his choice as being hard to blend in. Then again I've never seen a fire truck like that either.

    just watch the series, you'll see that Scattorshot picked his mode on purpose. Prime didn't approve at first, until he understood Scattorshot's motive. Scattorshot's reason was for a battlefield advantage, as opposed to a disguise.

    I think the real point of being disguised is that they don't look like robots.

    Actually, the show has him pick his alt mode from a movie poster, so his un-earthly design is down to that according to the writers. He went Hollywood on his alt mode!

    The basic sized figure is a half track, with a missile turret turret. He seems to be pretty heavily modelled on a South African armored car. They just stuck tracks under the back end.

    His Cybertron Defense upgrade is a tracked missile launcher with a mine plow. Basically a tank hull, with a different turret. Not all that uncommon, though I don't know how often they put plows on such things. I've seen plenty of normal tanks, with plows.
