    Only for a Beast Wars movie. They're too organic.

    That being said, I'd love some Beast Wars TFs with mythological animal alt modes.

    The Titan comics did bring some interesting characterizations to the table. Dead End as a ravenous monster that has to feed on other robots and harvest their parts to survive is particularly thought provoki-

    Oh. For a second I thought this thread was something not ridiculous.

    I think he was refering to machine versions of these ala G1. Not a bad idea though, as Bayverse-style animals would look good in some of these shapes.
    By the way, who is Violen Jiger? His name sounds like some mash-up collab between Yo-Yo Ma and Jay-Z.

    "That being said, I'd love some Beast Wars TFs with mythological animal alt modes."
    That'd actually be a great way to make it work: Optimus Primal as a griffin, Megatron as a dragon, Inferno as an ant-lion, etc.

    "I think he was refering to machine versions of these ala G1. Not a bad idea though, as Bayverse-style animals would look good in some of these shapes."
    Precisely.

    "His name is Rack n' Ruin."
    Wow. Great choice.

    "By the way, who is Violen Jiger? His name sounds like some mash-up collab between Yo-Yo Ma and Jay-Z."
    He's this Japanese villain. Violen Jiger - Transformers Wiki

    I'd say it'd be awesome as all fuck, but if they're not vehicles or not G1-enough people would lose their molten shit.

    I could see Decepticons that have shapes similar to the monsters in Titans that had the same role as The Driller and Devastator.

    So, transformers doesn't have enough lore that we have to go rip off some other, completely unrelated licence????

    Meh, they should do their own stuff. With the money they pay their writers, the least they can get is some original ideas.

    Maybe not as those, but since we've already had some kind of Pretender tech in RotF so TF could look like a human I could see the Decepticons upping their game and making some of their spies look like real animals.

    I was really hoping Mojo would turn out to be a Decepticon in disguise. :p

    “So, transformers doesn't have enough lore that we have to go rip off some other, completely unrelated licence?”
    I was looking at Tranformer parallels to those creatures, which could possibly be used in the future. I especially like the Chimera for Doublecross – it’s about time the Autobots got their own animals to dole out some damage.

    What can I say, I’m an Autobot animal aficionado.
