    How would one write out, in letters, the classic transformation sound? I need it for this illustration I'm doing. I forget how the sound is worded in the comics (though I'm sure it varies), but I was thinking: CHKK CHRR CHRRKK

    Thanks!

    I'm getting something like:

    CHK CHR CHA CHARR CHCKK

    Basically the same as yours, I just did a "word" for each of the five sounds (based off the Transformation 1 effect found in TFCog's G1 sound file)

    I find these threads funny, but I'm going to bite. It should be "chee choo choo choo chuh". It's a five-parter.

    It's spelled "Raymond Luxury Yacht", but pronounced "Throat Wobbler Mangrove".

    The way I've always made the sound...well, I don't know if I could reproduce it in text. It's very gutteral and in the back of the mouth.

    That said, for the really complex transformations it seems like it's on a scale - C D E F G A B C.

    I like Cataclizm's version for shorter/quicker transformations.
