    I was just thinking that I would like to see Megs as a German King Tiger Tank from WWII. I doubt Hasbro would consider this for several reasons.

    They haven't totally abandon alt. modes like that. You have figures like G2 Ransack witch is a convincing F4U Corsair. More recently is ROTF Ransack & divebomb who are Bi-Planes, HFTD Highbrow who is P-38 Lighting-ish, HFTD Hubcap who is a style 50's Hot Rod.

    Agreed. As much as I like the Hearts of Steel style, I think WWII would've worked a bit better. More variation than just trains and blimps.

    I have to agree, I like classic/p├ždstyle cars as well (not so much for planes really, but then I hardly like Earth planes :p )

    Starscream as a Stuka divebomber or Powerglide as a superfortress would burn a whole in my wallet.
