Transformers is a series about Alein Robots that come from a planet called Cybertron, that turn into Cars, Trucks, Jets, Tapedecks, Guns, and Tanks. Right? Well, personally... Asides from Laserbeak from armada, the 07 Realgear stuff, as well as Movie Frenzy... There really hasn't been any "main cannon" alternate modes that have been something that is notoriously goofy. Like, I would love there to be a Transformer, that turns into like... A Billboard, or something stupid like that. Personally, I think that is the charm and appeal G1 had, is that it really did "Dare to be stupid", in its own right, in which it could totally get away with things like Megatron, and Soundwave. Because, from the get go it had a very "Why the hell not?" attitude towards transformations. That saying though, as the shows progress I feel like there is less and less love given to the alternate modes themselves. Because, ontop of it supposedly being made to appeal for kids, and teens. It really bugs me that every tranformer and their mother has to be a sportscar, Firetruck, Hummer, Tank, Helicoptor, jet, and Construction vehicle. Why the hell can we not have a transformer like Brains? (Also, I derped on the whole main cannon and recently thing but... POINT STILL STANDS!) Who, just tranforms into whatever the hell is laying about the room? It is really the one thing that dissapointed me about the Laserbeak toy, I would have much rathered him turn into some sort of LCD screen, that comes with a box unit, that also transforms. Or better yet. Nix the "Cybertronian" alt modes. Those things are always ass, always. And just have something derpy... like a printer... Shockwave? Printer? Why the hell not? It's Transformers. It is something that just makes me wish they would do a new Beastwars show, because they would be forced to use their iiiiiiiiimaaaaaaaaagiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaatiiiiiiiiiiiiooooooonnnn, as well as nix bumblebee (Unless they made him a bumblebee, in which I possibly would proceed to furiously headdesk) However, honestly I feel like the love of Transfomers has been sucked out in replace of the merchandising aspect. Regardless if Transformers has usually been about merchandising, it still usually had some sort of soul to it. Now? Please, Prime is generic as it gets. The only thing it seems to have innovated, is switching factions on Tracks, and proving that Animated was a far better show, even if it did last too long. So, what would you want for a G1 Inspired Alt?
