    We've all seen the Cybertronian modes for Prime and Megatron but, what about the others?

    I'd like to see cybertron modes for the whole gang. Bumblebee, Prowl, Bulkhead, Ratchet, Starscream etc.

    They should do some more flashback episodes that show what they transformed into before they came to earth.

    What do you think?

    Accidentally entered the thread before I finished it. I edited the first post......Sorry.

    Mods could you PLEASE edit the title so it reads: Cybertronian ALT Modes?

    We saw Ratchets in both the first episode and thrill of the hunt.
    We'll likely see Bumblebee's and Bulkhead's in (Episode Synopsis Spoiler): the episode where they remember their days in boot camp.

    unless you mean toys.
    Then I'd say it'd be unlikely.
    Unless they do some Titanium-like line in ten years.

    We've seen Ratchet's Cyb mode.

    For som reason, the feet, shoulders, and chest on Bumblebee pre-earth seem to point to him having a Cybertronian ALT mode like he did in G1. (the flying saucer/hover-craft with wheels)

    There is: (SPOILERS HOLY CRAP LOOK AWAY) An episode coming up in season 2 where BB and Bulkhead flashback to when they both became Autobots, so we'll probably see them both then.

    This thread caught my attention. I was also gonna start a thread on the same subject.

    We also see a glimpse of Sentinel Primes Alt mode in a flash back.

    I'd actualy like some Cybertronian toys, like Cyb Lugnut for example, I love the turret-ears.

    That's right....I forgot about that episode. That was the one with Arcee and Lockdown.

    I didn't mean toys. I meant showing their cybertronian modes in the cartoon.


    I'd love to see the rest of the gang's Cybertronian modes though.

    Just watched the feature length opener again.

    There are hints in the robot modes there - BB definitely has some disc shaped shoulders and radically different deco chest (he does a sweet double-take of his body when he's reformatted). Bulkhead looks much the same except he has tracks in place of wheels.

    Of all the Cyb alt-modes in TFA I'd be most interested in Blitzwing's...
    (Or flying pyramid Starscream would be good for an in-joke.)

    What I don't get is why Bulkhead still has tank treads on the bottom of his feet when he obviously doesn't have them in his vehicle mode. He seems to have retained them from his cybertronian robot form.

    i know, its an animation error. i always figure it as the wheels get squished, making it look like tire treads.

    How do you know it's an error? It could just be what his feet look like.

    i read somewhere that it was an animation error. i dont remember where, but ill try to find that bit-though i believe it was a Wiki, so i dont know how accurate it is.

    http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Bulkhead trivia says its a possible error, my bad

    I would love to have Cybertronian toy versions of each of them. It shouldn't be that difficult to do.

    Wikipedia isn't always too reliable, anyone can edit it.

    Even leader class Bulkhead has treads. So far the only real consistant animation error I've found is how BB's stripe switches sides on his legs during transformation.

    It is the Transformers WIki, specialised wikis are normally more reliable then Wikipedia, but still anyone can edit it.

    Although the Bulkhead article say it's "probably" an animation error,
    it's not saying anything absolute.

    I think it's just a design oversite that they kept.

    Most likey not, since his earth mode design (which is what all his toys ar based off of) would have been designed first so Hasbro had something to make the toys with, with the second, less-used, Cybertron mode designed second. The treads are just a design feature, he's a robot after all, he can have treads and not turn into a treaded vehicle.

    Exactly. All the Autobots have the "boot" design to their feet (even Prowl only more like a shoe design) It's probably just a creative touch to Bulkhead to make him more "heavy-duty".

    Well the official art got 'em and it looks like the Leader toy too, so it's clearly anything but some kind of error.
