    So The WFC and FOC line has prompted me to buy some more Cybertronian(ish) alt mode Decepticons to add to the WFC/FOC Decepticon ranks. Right now I've picked up an Energon Sharkticon and Slugslinger to join my army but I want more.

    So out of the lines from Energon to today who are the bots that are still sporting their home planet's altmodes?

    Cybertron Dark crumplezone, energon scorponok, and cybertron sideways are pretty good from the top of my head.

    Soundwave. One of the best Cybertronian Decepticons, period.

    Cybertron Starscream, Crumplezone, and Sideways come to mind.

    In fact, most of the vehicle modes from the Cybertron line are so stylized that they could pass as being Cybertronian.

    Titanium War Within Starscream, Sunstorm, Thundercracker, Thrust and Skywarp.

    I like to use Thrust as pre Beast Terrorsaur.

    I think a head remold and repaint of Energon Omega Supreme would make a great Cybertronian Astrotrain.

    The Horrorcons and Targetmasters were all depicted as being Cybertronian.

    G1 Sixshot.

    G1 Thunderwing.

    I am curious about the beasts such as:

    The Firecons
    Squeezeplay
    Fangry
    Terrorcons
    Snapdragon

    A lot of the major Movie Decepticons got Cybertronian modes, though I don't think they'd really fit in with the "80's futuristic video game" style WfC/FoC has (not to mention all but The Fallen have a Wf/FoC toy):

    I suppose Starscream could pass, though not as Starscream himself, and his alt leaves much to be desired.

    i don't think i'd count the two you already got as cybertronian but to each their own. DOTM shockwave is a definite must, he's probably the least shitty of the cybertronian movie toys.

    Hmmm, lots of good bots in here, I wasn't expecting such a variety.:lol 


    I'm gonna go with one version of each bot and since I already have WFC Megs and Soundwave as well as FOC Shockwave I'm set with those three. I'm thinking some of the Velocitron bots such as Crumplezone (already mentioned), Ransack GTS (prefer this one's colors), and Dirtboss could count as Cybertronian modes right?

    Wow, looking at the bots mentioned by everyone so far I think I'm going to be needing more funds to pick these all up.

    DOTM Shockwave and ROTF Voyager Megatron, if not mostly for the bot modes.

    The Cybertron Starscream mold comes to mind, if I were a repurposer. Personally, I'm sticking with the actual WFC/FOC toys for my collection.

    Well, if you can spend the money, get the Shapeways Cassetteacons. They look cool & they give you Cybertronion Beast-Box, Frenzy, Rumble, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, & Ravage.

    you could always get SG starscream and repurpose him as morally conflicted cybertronian jetfire.
