    Just wondering how many of the currently Earth-bound Transformers have we seen Cybertronian alt-modes for? I know for sure we have for Optimus Prime and Ratchet (did we see Megatron's alt mode in the opening movie?). We've also seen that the various bots had differences in their robot modes as a result of their Cybertronian modes, but how many have had on-screen appearances by their alt modes? I wish we could see some concept art or something relating to this.

    Sentinal
    waspinator/wasp
    bumble bee
    ironhide
    long arm
    bulkhead
    rachet
    optimus
    I don't remember, but did we see Lockdowns alt mode in Rachets flash back?

    on a side note, I was kind of dispointed when they didn't show Elite ones alt mode in that flash back of her on the spider planet.

    that's all I can think of right now

    Hmm, I don't remember Bumblebee and Bulkhead's...at a guess, I'd say BB was in the ep with Wasp and Bulkhead was in the season 2 finale?

    Not really. It was at least similar enough to have no differences in robot mode.

    HOW COOL WOULD IT BE IF THEIR CYBERTRONIAN FORMS WERE DONE IN THE UNIVERSE LINE?!?!?! i personally would find it awesome to see like a deluxe cybertronian form for bulkhead (small, but we got the big ones, so it doesnt matter too much) and BB, Ratchet, all those guys-if they dont want to do them as animated toys, couldnt they do them in the Universe line?

    No it isn't, he didn't need one, he didn't get one.

    Hell people even thought his Cybertronian mode was already Earthly.

    Why the Universe line? The animated line is still going.

    But yeah, I'd like some of the Cyb-mode forms. I want Wasp and Ironhide the most. Bulkhead would be nice, but I'm not so pushed about it, as there's already multiple Bulkheads, and he doesn't yet have any show-based repaint possibilities.

    If we get Wasp, Bumblebee and Cliffjumper retools would be awesome. I also think it's a really great design.

    There's only one character I care to see the Cybertronian altmode for...Elita-One. I have to know why she RAN away from the spiders instead of transforming, like Optimus did. Her altmode is obviously something utterly useless, but I have to know what that useless apparatus is. Maybe a streetlight like G1 Soundwave's pre-Earth mode? A communication console? A toaster oven?

    I really, really want to see what Blitzwing and Lugnut's Cybertronian modes were, if only in the form of concept art.

    See this sort of thing is what puzles me I like exploring concepts within the setting and such but what your talking about is taking something that was clearly a descion that was made due to factors outside the show but you want to shoe horn an explantion.

    SHE RAN CAUSE THEY DIDNT DESIGN AN ALT MODE FOR HER and honestly why would they she appears in single episode via flashback and in the present she has a considerably different appearance and a new name its not the same as doing cyber modes for the core characters.

    Animated Elita 1 existed solely to provide Black Arachnia with a backstory thats it she isnt going to turn back to Elita 1.

    OR, the story was written so that she panicked and ran, and therefore the animators didn't HAVE to design an alt mode for her. Just sayin'.

    Of course, if the animators are anything like this fandom, one of them will have drawn up concept art for her and tucked it away where it will pop up years from now in a show bible.

    Megatron's Cybertronian alt mode is seen quite clearly in the movie. As is Starscream's (until he reformats himself to "blend in.")

    Fixed.
