    With the talk of a reboot and such on here I've been playing around with finding current real life vehicles that would be more G1 themed in terms of color scheme and make/model than what was seen in the films. One of the ones that surprised me to find was this gem from the Sri Lankan Navy. They actually were trying to sell one of these recently, dunno who bought it, but both in color scheme and appearance this would make one sweet Seaspray for a TF live action movie. As a matter of fact in ROTF I think you actually catch a glimpse of a military hovercraft during the Egypt battle, and with Bay's military infatuation this woulda actually been quite doable. Same goes for Powerglide in that you do see some A-10 Warthogs in ROTF so that also woulda been doable, although I'm pretty sure there are no real life examples of A-10 Warthogs that come in red. This military hovercraft iteration linked below, though, really does come in good ol' Seaspray blue and gold...

    Oh and also props to the Greek army for providing a pretty cool Warpath. Why they included red in their tank's camoflouge scheme or what purpose they think it'd serve I have no idea - is it supposed to mesh with all the splattered blood on the battle field? Were they planning on having tomatoes thrown at them? Who knows. But hey, for a live action Warpath it works for me.
