    Ok, so think of a few characters, think of an alt-mode (based on a real vehicle, jet, tank) and match it up. Also feel free to discuss other's choices. I'll go first.

    GVT-04 Double-Barreled Tank - Megatron would be a pretty good fit for this tank, like WWI style Megs, but to me, this thing just SCREAMS Skullgrin. Perfect Earth-Mode IMHO

    F-16XL Experimental Fighter Jet - Starscream. Like I WFC/Cyb. Style Starscream would go great with this jet. It already had the right color scheme IRL! It's like it was MADE to be Starscream!

    So, ideas?

    EDIT - Also try and attach photos of the alt-modes you suggest :)

    I agree with you on that tank. Someone needs to be it! And that someone needs a toy ASAP!

    I'd like to see Shockwave turn into a ducted fan aircraft, like DOTM Laserbeak's toy.

    That tank could work as Demolishor

    Hound could turn into a Humvee or a military dune buggy.

    Red Alert needs to be some sort of truck or SUV.

    Thanks for the response on the tank, how about the jet? I just fixed the picture so you can see it without going to the website

    That jet reminds me of Starscream's alt mode in Prime.

    It could work as Skydive maybe.

    Could look being Jetstorm's alt mode.

    That jet reminds me a lot of Needlenose's alt mode.

    That jet really makes me think of Cybertron!Thundercracker. The tank screams Demolisher or Scattorshot.

    I've said in the past I'd like to see Omega Supreme as a shuttle crawler:[​IMG]

    For some reason I really like the idea of Fort. Max. as a huge, militarized train:

    Motormaster as a Movie!Prime style Peterbilt with two huge trailers would be cool in a massive, insane, questionably legal kind of way.

    I've said it before, but I would love to see Soundwave as some kind of military-grade Emergency Command Vehicle/Mobile Communications Unit.

    I think Thunderblast would do well with a twin-hull boat like PCC Undertow or G2 Manta Ray's altmode. She wouldn't have to be a shellformer then :)

    Starscream's alt mode in Prime is a F-16, so good reminding :lol

    A Lamborghini Gallardo Super Leggara would be a nice Sunstreaker.
    A Ford F-150 Super Snake concept truck would be an awesome Kup.
