    Vehicons originated in Beast Machines, and there were 3 kinds of Vehicons. Jet, motorcycle, and tank. So far in TFP we get the drones that turn into jets and cars. Will we get a third kind of Vehicons? Maybe a tank mode is not going to happen as we already have the giant bugs/Insections for the bulky, large drones, like tanks. But wouldn't it be nice they tried anyway? Or make another kind of Vehicon.

    Tanks seem far out of the way, but would be a pretty awesome concept since it would do something I'd always want--make the decepticons not give a crap about anything! Like, up until now, despite not caring about humans and surfing th eworld looking for energon, the Decepticons haven't been discovered or revealed Cybertronian existence yet (even with so many dead Vehicon bodies)

    So huge tanks rolling around the place would make that happen, since it'd be hard to hide that, but once again, another generic throw away group would be better spent making a character that matters.

    I would love to see a tank Vehicon, perhaps led by a Vehicon Commander Brawl.

    But then it would hurt having to pay a lot for a figure from Takara, because I know Hasbro wouldn't do it.

    Jets are the third kind. The second was miners. But I believe you're right about the Insecticons being the heavy hitters of the generics however I agree that tanks would be fun.

    As the Vehicons seem to be intended as generics, I'd like to see more different sizes and alt modes. I doubt every Decepticon out there has chosen a car, jet or... whatever the miners turn into as their alt mode. I'd like to at least see some truck Vehicons. But if Megatron lets the Insecticons turn into bugs, I don't see why there wouldn't be tank Vehicons.

    Well, there's at least a concept of it for the video game.

    I'd like that if it wasn't for the cannon being on it's head. But I guess they can see in alt mode without eyes so I guess the same could go for robot mode.

    Yeah tank vehicons better be more powerful than the other vehicon modle seen so. Powerful enough to seriously challange even optimus prime, especially even in large numbers but fortunally tank vehicons are rarer than than the other vehicons.

    Tank mode vehicons would be cool, but I suppose we already have the Insecticons as the big bruiser mooks, so I don't think we'll see any anytime soon.

    The cannon's above it's head. You can see the silver head right below the cannon mount area.

    Enh, I'd rather have a named Decepticon with a tank alt-mode.

    I'd like some tanks in the show, but

    This might be a better idea as long as the tank guy is a good character


    Like Demolishor

    Or Bludgeon! He could be a Dark Energon zombie who retained his intelligence and agility somehow!

    I'd prefer Tankor for a few reasons:
    1. Tankor was a Vehicon in Beast Machines, so it'd make sense.
    2. If it were Brawl or Demolisher, the crybabies would complain he isn't green or doesn't act like the name-sakes.
    3. When he inevitably dies, it wouldn't cause a huge uproar about them killing off a G1 character.

    I'm not saying he should be a Vehicon, just a tank Decepticon

    You assume they wouldn't look/act like their name-sakes, and that he would die

    I'm still waiting for my Vehicon commander 'miner class', the one that Ratchet took a blowtorch to during 'Faster, Stronger'.

    Oh, you're right. It's all the way down there. Well I fully approve the design now.
