    I was looking through a aircarft book today at work when I came across this aircraft...... and then it hit me.... IT's STRATOSPHERE!!!!!

    Photo Search Results | Airliners.net

    The largest aircraft in the world.... The Antonov AN-225 Mriya

    Only one was ever built..

    If this thing WAS a transformer... Epic wouldn't even be able to discribe it... It's not a perfect match but I'm pretty sure his design is based off it.

    Stratosphere is a blend of "a C130-Hercules for the body, a C-17 Globemaster III for the wings, the cockpit of a C-5 Galaxy and the tail of an Antonov An-225" according to tfwiki.net

    well i actually like this guy's toy. if he transformed in the movie, he could act like a movieverse Omega Supreme. But since he'd have no worthy opponent, i fear M. Bay would have him killed by someone like Ravage :) .

    We already have an AN-225 Transformer. Movie-line Jetstorm, a redeco of Cybertron Jetfire.

    Infil, that's the problem. It's not a accurate represenation of the Antonov.
    I could see a Radicon bashing a Antonov together and calling it Stratosphere.

    So pretty much just like when one of the cassettes took out Omega Supreme all by himself in the 80's!

    I love Stratosphere, just for being so out there, and the tiny Prime is love. Really wish the shuttle gun had made it to the final product.
