    Maybe it's because you are use to them being in that form. Maybe it's because you prefer an alt mode to robot mode, or you want them to be in their iconic robot form, but we all have toys that we prefer to keep in one form and, if we do transform them, hurriedly transform them back to their preferred form.

    For me, I have a couple:

    -Classics Grimlock (T-Rex mode): For those that read my webcomic, they'll notice that I always keep Grimlock in dino form. This is mainly because I think his Rex form is so expressive, allowing me to pose him in a hundred different ways (with just a slight change of his hands and mouth, I can make him happy, tough or scared)

    -DOTM Air Raid (Plane mode): I got him yesterday and while I like the idea that in bot mod he is swinging a mace and wielding a shield, I love his alt mod. I can't really explain it

    -Battle Blade Bumblebee (Bot mode) The reverse of Grimlock: while the car mode is ok, his Bot mode is so full of little gimmicks I always feel guilty when i have him just sitting there are a car.

    My FP Bruticus has been in his combined form for goodness knows how long already. I've almost forgotten how to separate his components and transform them into their robot or vehicle modes.

    Battle Hooks Optimus Prime because I "customized" it with a broken back part.

    I keep Armada Hot Shot in car mode since his robot mode is so derpish.

    G1 Mixmaster is in his vehicle mode since it looks better.

    Movie 1 Final Battle Jazz stays in his car mode since I don't like how his robot mode looks in this mold.

    My Cybertron Overhaul stays in alt. mode due to his door breaking off but it still pegs in during car mode so he's stay like that for a long time.

    I'll always keep my United Blurr and Tracks in car mode because it shows off their gorgeous decoes so much better. I have the Hasbro versions for 'bot mode anyways.

    G1 Jetfire and Metroplex stay in robot modes as they look better in that mode anyway.

    MP Seekers in jet mode because they look so amazing... and because their bot modes look so incredibly shitty.

    WFC Bumblebee & Cliffjumper in their cool little Tron pod-car looking alt modes because they're a royal pain to transform and their bots suck something awful.

    95% of Alternators because the alt modes just look so ridiculously good and barely give away that they could be Transformers.

    Most of my legion/legend class figures i keep in Alt mode because there robot modes all look pretty shiity plus I generally have there deluxe or bigger sized figures in Robot. Also 2007 Movie Arcee in her Bike mode and Prime Arcee in Robot. THS-02B(hybrid style g1 black convoy) in Robot mode cus alt doesn't give him justice! FP Superion will stay in Combined Robot mode, cus I just don't find there transformations that much fun.

    MP Megatron. Twice transformed and snapped the tiny slot (center). Hairline crack more like.
    No more gun for that guy! I'll buy another before transforming this puppy!

    Other than MP Grimlock, I'd say all my G1's stay in bot mode and Combiners in combiner mode.

    MP Megatron because he is such a pain in the ass to transform, looks too "off" in alt mode because he is just too big. Have a G1 I can use for gun mode. MP stays in 'bot mode.

    My G1 Whirl stays in vehicle mode, because robot mode is a stick figure.

    I've grown to like Whirl's bot mode. Although his copter mode is the best G1 out there, with Highbrow right behind.
