    Just wondering where everyone stands on the possibility of a TF that transforms into a Train being in TF3?

    I kind of had a vision where rather than have your traditional Locomotive turning into a robot, alien it up a bit. We already had a Scorpion and a Panther in the first two movies, how about a snake?

    Take an ENTIRE train and have the cars transform into it's body with the Locomotive transforming into the head. Maybe make it look like a giant alien King Cobra?

    You mean like this? YouTube - Transformer Train V 2 HD

    Eh. Trains aren't as practical for transportation and don't have the quick access Cars or Planes. Unless it's Astrotrain or some crazy Back to the Future model. For just a random side figure yes, a train would be interesting. Appearing in the movie as a main character would be too restrictive, and a waste of good CGI resources if he his a crony that ends up giving his face to Prime .

    A train would be awesome. We already had toasters & coffeemakers, so why not.

    Would like too see a classic steam engine (Hearts of Steel style ) and a bullet train.
    JRX was totally rad, still is.

    Unlikely, as North American children don't seem to have the same love of trains as Japanese ones, from a merchanising perspective, but who knows, anything is possible.

    I'd prefer not, or limit the TF to the locomotive part.

    I can see a bullet train tf if they have any of it set in Japan, but I'm pretty neutral on the matter.

    No.

    There's dozens of ideas I'd prefer them to explore before even considering trains. Maybe by the time we get to TF7 or so, but for TF3 I'd rather not go there.

    And Astrotrain? Seriously, I'm as big a G-wunner as anyone, but you have to be objective about it. That was a ridiculous idea.

    How do you come up with a rationale for a space-shuttle/locomotive? And it's not like he was an amazing character or something.

    Only if they can make something good out of it.

    I'd prefer maybe a monorail/light-rail system, or as someone else said, a bullet train. Something you'd see in a city.

    I would say no. Trains are pretty much limited to only operating on Traintracks, and aren't built for all terrain. With Cars, Trucks and Airplanes, you can go across different kinds of terrains quicker..
