    there is a limo pimp go-bot

    Hoist from energon or armada or whatever it's called is an unusual looking shovel.

    Tank from go-bots is...not a tank

    Drill head from go bots

    The computron bots

    any of the post movie(86) bots seem weird to me.

    Flatline from the Tales of the Fallen is supposed to be a hearse. Apparently when he was drawn up as a G1 character, that's what he transformed into.

    I think that's about it with regards forklifts though.

    Beast Wars Botanica is a plant. And this guy's is a traffic light.

    Cannonball, a repaint of Red Alert from the Cybertron series, resembles a hearse.

    I never noticed the head sticks out the top like that in that mold. I thought Energon Ironhide was the only figure with that extremely shitty distinction.

    there's been a few fan characters, and there's also a movieverse character in the comics.

    Personally, I'm waiting for a clown car transformer.

    That doesn't resemble any hearse that I have ever seen in all my time driving past the funeral parlor.

    Its either a station wagon or a small 4x4.

    Well as far as forklifts, there's Deadlift & Dirt Boss. They're the same mold, but I believe the orange one came in a two pack with Beachcomber.

    It worked a bit better on Red Alert, where the color blended more and looked kinda like part of the light bar. Here it does look a lot like a car wearing a hat. :)

    Actually Beast Wars had a Microverse killer whale playset, called Orcanoch. Being named, it might have been intended to be alive.

    Looks more like something parked outside a ghost train ride.
    I thought that too. Took me a few seconds to realise it was actually his head and not just a random yellow helmet stuck on top of the alt. Maybe it's a nod to G1 Spike and Sparkplug when they worked for... a really dangerous funeral parlour? :p 
    I always assumed it was. Loved thise two playsets and their tiny little figures. :) 
    I would've liked a proper Killer Whale BW character though. And have him named K'Whale. Maybe he could have a third mode that was a Quail. :p

    Yup, snagged that set at Botcon 2010 on a trip to Walmart. Deadlift's a Gobot homage.

    Heh, I didn't even realize that until I looked into these guys (that one of em was Gobot homage), and now I'm torn between which one I like better. I mean on one hand, I think the green & neutral chest work really well for the robot mode (not to mention it's closer to the constructicon look), but I also like how sharp the orange is & how there's more darker colours to break it up, especially in the lift truck mode.

    ... so yeah, I'll probably just end up getting both. :)
