    If you had to create 1 or 2 new Transformer (live action) robot film characters for a Transformers 2 or 3 movie, what would you call each one and what creatively witty or cool (serious or humorous) abilities or superpower/s would you give your Transformer character, that the other Transformer robots don't have (or even if they do have any ability or superpower mentioned, yours would have abilities or powers that are even vastly better or cooler, in your opinion). For example, it wouldn't necessarily just be able to transform into a car.

    If this topic has been discussed here before, please give any thread links.

    I don't know, I always kind of thought of lots of the G1 guys, especially 'toon '84-'85 characters, as having superpowers. Skywarp's teleportation, Trailbreaker's force-field, Hound's holograms, Mirage's invisibility, Smokescreen's...err, smokescreen, etc.

    I kinda felt like that was part of the original appeal of the characters.

    Meh, I'll bite the bait....

    Aside from saying that Laserbeak should be a Predator drone plane I really cant think of anything else to put in the movie.

    A friend of mine wanted to run a Transformers table top RPG using D20 rules and I had a character that was an ex-Decpticon called "SuperNova". He transformered into a space ship that focused on long range firepower, I wouldnt say he's a sniper but more like artilletery. His orignal job was to orbit planets and shoot down objects before said objects entered the atmosphere.

    Yeah, perhaps when I was younger I looked at it like that, but now I just chalk it up to add on tech and upgrades that they got. I think of super powers and i think of abilities that one shouldn't have. The 84-85 bots and cons abilities made sense given that they were just machine. To each his own i guess.

    I would make a transformer called Cityslicker. He transforms into a city bus and his power is that in bus mode he can stretch for a long distance and in robot mode can see from a long distance as well.
