    With all the hype on the upcoming MMC Shockwave my mind started to think (a dangerous past time, I know) So I come to all of you with a question.

    Who appeared in the HoS series in both Alt and Bot mode. I did a google search and found images of

    Optimus Prime
    Bumble Bee
    Megatron
    Shockwave
    The Seekers
    Insecticons

    and I saw a pic of Ravage in Kitty mode(what is his alt) and Ratchet as a box car and his head and bot mode of Squakbox(?)

    Who else was in this series? I think the "steam punk" bot designs are awesome.

    Thanx

    I remember ratchet.

    I also remember thinking of the series as an atrocity :)

    I never did read the series. I just remember back in my "hanging out in a comic shop days" that I saw the comics on the shelf and really enjoyed the STEAM PUNK redesigns.

    I'm just curious as to how many character options MMC may have if they decide to make a whole series out of their figures.

    Gears
    huffer
    possibly grimlock (hard to tell, it's a battle scene)
    Iron hide
    prowl
    bluestreak

    6 shot? the one that turns into an eagle and a gorilla with a white, turqouise fusia color scheme


    Also it's either soundwave or rumble. That's what I see :)

    I loved the HoS designs, but the story was awful and barely had anyone in it. Optimus never appeared active or in his HoS body and neither did Megatron.

    Samuel Clemens appeared in both his Samuel Clemens mode and his Mark Twain mode, does that count?

    The guy you think is Sixshot is Squakbox, the name might be wrong but it is a two cassette combiner.
    The Guy you think may be Soundwave is Frenzy/Rumble. Wiki says he is never mentioned by name.

    On the wiki I did read about Prowl but the rest are news to me.

    Did they show Huffer, Gears, Grimlock and Bluestreak in both modes?

    Thanks for all your insight guys.

    nope, the only ones in alt modes were the ones you mentioned. There were a lot of crazy bots that you could tell their bot modes but as far as I know none were any transformer anyone would know (one looked like he transforms into a railroad signal).

    was intrigued by the concept. yeah, the story line was kind of lame but the concept is neat, especially when you compare it to some of the silliness that is out and has come out in the past, like the Animated series, and the trend of see through transformer toys.

    I am about to embark on my TF sleeve tattoo in a couple of weeks. My tattoo guy is going to tweak the original G1 concepts and Steampunk them, keeping them recognizable, just adding and altering joints and parts and pieces and whatnot.

    Process of elimination reveals that Gears is actually a coal cart, IMO - in the Autobot convoy there are two boxcars (Ratchet and Ironhide), and two engines (Prowl and Bumblebee) and a coal cart with a boiler on the back of it. It seems to me that this coal cart is probably what Gears turns into, since there isn't anything else shown for him to be. I don't have the issue on hand anymore to recheck this though.
