    Beside the (crappy) Deepdive minicon from GF/Cybertron, is there any other bots with decent submarine alt-modes? I need some other sub/boatformers (maybe a one or two) to accompany Armada Tidal Wave. :bay  :D  :D

    There's the Go-Bot Deep Dive. That's it.

    Energon Omega Supreme can make a battleship and there's a few Cybertron figs who turn into boats. Cyb Thunderblast turns into a speedboat and Cyb Shortround turns into a hoverboat thing. There's also a remold of Shortround for the movie.

    Wait, Energon Sharkticon is a submarine, isn't he? He's shaped like a shark, but he has cannons and a bridge.

    He's also based on the Nemesis, of course, but I was under the impression that he was a sub. Never watched Energon, though, so I dunno... maybe he's a spaceship instead?

    As for other boatformers, what about Energon Mirage and Dreadwing? Two of the coolest boatformers out there, IMO.

    Energon Mirage and Energon Sharkticon are more boats/subs.


    Get these:

    Energon Mirage - Attack Boat
    Energon Sharkticon - Submarine
    Cyb Shortround - Hovercraft
    Cyb Thunderblast - Attack Boat
    Energon Dreadwing - Attack Boat (repaint of mirage)
    Movie Storm Surge - Hovercraft (repaint of Cyb Shortround)

    these should be enough to keep Tidal Wave company.

    Also you should get every jet minicon you can find and keep them on Tidal Wave, would make him more carrier like as well as dangerous.

    Yeah, Sharkticon is kinda a shark-shaped submarine, thanks. He wasn't in the Energon show, which wouldn't have helped much at any rate. Dump trucks driving through space FTL.

    What an awesome figure. I've never started down the slippery slope of Brave figures, but a few of them (like this one) are sorely tempting.

    It kinda makes me wish that instead of just doing repainted Transformers Classics figures, Takara had done its own Brave Classics line, that could mold-share with TF's. I know, ridiculous idea... but fun brain candy! :)
