    I'm trying to get ahead this year for a Halloween costume. Last year I literally finished it 3 hours before I went T-or-T. I'm still a kid (13) at heart and I love candy :D . So I would like help to find a figure that has a transformation that humanly possible. As in not needing to spin a head or leg 180°. Thanks in advance.

    Cybertron Metroplex. Can you bend over into a "Duck and cover" position? If the answer is yes, you can be Cybertron Metroplex.

    Other than that, I can't think of any off the top of my head.

    I'd go with sideswipe. flip up hood, hold your arms against your body, and lay down on the floor.

    If you wanna go even simpler (and in my opinion, cooler), go with energon cruellock. flip dino head back, posture change = transformed. AND you can still run around collecting candy in both modes!

    It depends, really. How mobile do you want the alt mode to be?

    EDIT: Take 2 skateboards, tie them together, strap them on your back and go as a Battlecharger.

    Or a Throttlebot.

    I guess you don't own Cybertron Metroplex, because his transormation is not humanly possible, as it involes bending the legs in three points (hip, backwards knee, mid-shin), rotating and bending the arms backwards at the elbow, and still having the head on top. (flipping and folding the torso) Plus rotating the waist 180 degrees.

    Painful. ;) 

    Now an over-simplified/sloppy version could work.

    No, I don't, but the basic idea is "duck and cover."

    :lol 

    Or Cyb Snarl, for that matter. Classics Megatron = worst nightmare.

    Cyb Scourge could possibly be done, now that I think about it. Base it more off the Legends version than the Ultra version, and it just might work.

    Wow so many replies in an hour. Thanks everyone! I'll look over these options and see which one would work. Last Years

    The link in the topic doesn't work Grimlocka go-go. If it's the Sunstreaker/Hot Rod combo, that's quite a bit out of budget. I like your idea Valkysas, seems like it could work. I'll have to talk to my Dad about that. I have an idea for an Ironhide costume but the transformation was starting to get too technical. Thanks for all the ideas everyone!

    :D  That would be hilarious with a UPS sticker on it. Everyone would hear the doorbell, see a box, then WHAM!. Gimme candy!. :p

    If you can stand on your head, then Gigatron/RiD Megatron might be feasible.

    Speaking of which, I am adding more detail to my Rodimus costume. Maybe you should just stick with your favorite character and not transform, you know be an action master. Or no costume at all and be a pretender! :p

    What you want is something like Cruellock like Valkysas. You could always make it look like Grimlock, but you could do it so you're "functional" in both modes.

    Or perhaps go as Punch / Counterpunch, get candy as the Autobot then transform and see if you can get a second helping as a Decepticon :) 

    EDIT: looking at last year's, I'd say you're doing pretty well at whatever costume you decide to run with. Nice job!
