    I'm a kid from the 80s. It was all monster trucks, dinosaurs, and blazing guns. TF had the dinos but I'm surprised they never made any that turned into a big truck. I suppose the issue would be solving a transformation for the huge tires in robot mode.

    Cybertron (?) Dirt Boss was a monster truck.

    But I would love an up-to-date monster truck Transformer.

    Try checking TFU.info in their ID your figure section under trucks.

    Off the top of my head:
    micromasters Monster Truck Patrol
    PCC Salvage
    Big Hoss, but it's just one of those stealth force things
    cybertron Dirt Boss
    and maybe you can include G1 Crosshairs

    Animated Sentinal Prime can pass as a monser truck. The over sized wheels and raised suspension do it for me. The plow may be a reason not to include it but to me I see monster truck when I see Sentinal Prime.

    Yeah, movie Wheelie, but does that really count since it was a toy of a toy of a monster truck?

    And RotF Long Haul/Payload, while technically not montster trucks, are based on a truck that is about as monster as it gets. I've seen those trucks in person and they are freaking huge.

    ah, good one from the archives --- you are redeemed.

    Also, wasn't there one of those preschool Go-bot TFs that was monster truck-ish? or was it just because they all had big wheels? Not clear on it.

    And I did a digibash of TF Prime's Bulkhead into an old minicon dude, Grindor from the Dirt Digger Team. Bulkhead's not a monter truck, but he'd look sweet modded up with some big-ass tires.

    How doesn't that count?

    I mean if anything, it should count more than the others (especially stuff like Long Haul that's pretty much just big) because it's a toy. Think about that for a moment.

    TNS, there were 2 actually (ROTF Wheelie). The deluxe and the legends class.

    @ seekerblackout- Whether he was based on a RC truck or not, its still a monster truck. If a TF was based on a remote controlled car, it would still transform into a car would it not? So yea, it counts.
