    Since Prime does indeed take several cues from the Movie designs, why don't we pick out real life vehicles that are as close as possible to the ones in Prime?

    Sort of an "If TF Prime was the next movie" thing, for fun.

    I'd imagine anyone who has a movieverse counterpart would retain their vehicle and robot modes, just in the colors of their appearance in Prime. So Optimus would still be a red and blue Peterbilt 379 sans flames, Bumblebee would still be the Camaro, Ratchet would be the Hummer-ambulance but in red and white, Starscream is still an F-22, etc.

    But just for the hell of it, if we find a RL vehicle closer to a Prime one (like Starscream's jet) let's post that up too. I mean, since Starscream died if he came back maybe he would look like his Prime self anyway?

    Anyway, I'll start it off with Knock Out.

    I see him as an Aston Martin, specifically the Vantage.

    Soundwave = Reaper drone (that's what they're called, right? Funny how I'm in a military program but I know little about the military itself)

    Predator drone.

    Nice call on Knockout - that fits him very well.

    Edit: Wrecker, you're in JROTC - I don't think you're expected to know too much just yet.

    I'm not entirely sure what type of fighter jet this is, but it's similar enough to Starscream's, no?

    Soundwave, easily enough.

    And maybe an F-35 for Skyquake/Dreadwing?

    Well, the seeker bretheren (skyquake/dreadwing) ARE f-35s.

    Breakdown's the marauder

    Bulkhead might be jeep hurricane or lamborghini's SUV concept?

    Vehicons are cadillacs?

    All pretty nice choices guys! I can see alot of them working.

    I know somewhere buried in the movie forum there was a topic where it was discussing bringing Bulkhead in as Ironhide's replacement, and someone posted almost an exact replica of his vehicle mode in real life. I'll go back and find it at some point because it resembles him more than the Lambo SUV, but that's a pretty good one too for him. (And honestly, I didn't even know Lamborghini was making an SUV)

    I think for Vehicons, the Cadillac Cien works great, just paint it back and slap a spoiler on.

    Edit- I love how Dreadwing/Skyquake and Soundwave's vehicle modes look almost exactly the same as their real life counter parts. That's seriously pretty cool.

    Probably just a basic Ninja or something. She isn't anything custom or whatever.

    Always thought Bulkhead kind of resembled a sleeker Knight XV:

    Cliffjumper's is basically a spot on Dodge Challenger, so no real guessing with him.

    While I think what Yajuta posted could make an epic Bulkhead, I found the image I was talking about.

    Its apparently a Combat T98, what ever that is.

    Well, either my friends know too much stuff, or I don't play enough shooting games.

    Now, action movies, on the other hand, that I know a lot more. The F-35 Lightning II, shown off in Live Free or Die Hard and the Avengers, is a VTOL fighter jet, which can hover in place much like a Harrier Jet. Fowler's plane was able to perform movements only VTOLs could, noticeably when he first encountered Dreadwing.

    It was designed to compete for the role Hummers took back way back when... not many made If I recall correctly.

    Hm, seems Knock Out is an Aston Maserati. I think his shape and definitely the rear of the car are an Aston Martin, those headlights on the Maserati are slightly more Knock Out-y than the Vantage, despite both being similar shapes.

    I think it comes down then to which is a higher class sports car, because that's the one Knock Out would pick.

    The big question here is; what is Megatron based on?

    Okay, seriously, I wanna know what Bumblebee's based on.
