    Which do you prefer? Would you rather have transformers that turn into cars, trucks, boats, etc.? Or transformers that turn into animals?

    If I absolutely have to pick one, it would be vehicles.


    But my real vote is: Both

    Vehicles. While sure, I'd love Turtle and Dinosaur transformers, I'll take fancy cars, jets and doohickeys any day.

    Honestly? Beasts. They offer the ability to emote and do things the robot mode can't. They make for better fights because there's nothing more visceral than a giant gorilla and T-rex clawing, smashing and biting in a fight to the death. With cars it's usually just either ramming into stuff or lots of shots of cars driving fast.

    +rep to the people who said both.


    I mean, what's wrong with having both Cadillacs and dinosaurs? :p

    Nothing. But this isn't a thread asking if you like both. It's asking which of the two you prefer.

    Don't we get stealth/weaponised vehicle as well? that way, not only there are cars running fast and ramming. There'll be a vehicle parking at one space, draw out the cannon and fire. There's also a vehicle sniping from far. There's also Go Buster example, an entity that have truck mode, gorilla mode and robot mode. Beside, today Transformers arent block as before, theyr're more movable and humanoid, so I dont think that their fighting are any less than Beast Transformers.
    Vehicle mode.

    Well, I guess it'd depend on the setting. Like, animals made sense during the Beast Wars (at least to some extent), but put Rattrap into modern day looking like a Giant Rat... and he'd probably be safer staying in robot mode.

    Unless he was Transmetal Rattrap.

    Except you're comparing beast modes to robot modes at the end there.

    Also just having another form for shooting is boring. They shoot in robot mode. Alt mode is supposed to be different.

    Same here, except if I absolutely had to pick one, I'd still pick both, therefore none. :)

    Haha, but then he'd be both. You know, a rat with wheels!

    Also, what would you say if I asked about whether or not a "human" alt mode would count?

    Beasts, as they don't get old.

    With vehicle transformers, its just getting old now. Most of the time its tanks, jets, cars, and trucks. With BW, it was tons of interesting stuff. Everything from a rat to a great white shark to animal mixtures and dinosaur transformers.

    Plus back then even the alt modes were fun to mess around with. Now its either roll the car/truck/tank on the ground or pretend to fly a jet in the air. With beast transformers, I could pose the alt modes in cool looking angles.

    Tough choice.
    Beasts can actually do stuff in both modes, but their transformations tend to be a lot more basic. How many don't use at least one pair of beast limbs as bot limbs, too? How many of those are not bugs with thin legs?
    Vehicles are basically the opposite. Transformations can be more, for want of better word, creative, but with little play-value in vehicle mode unless it's something articulated like Movie Bonecrusher, but even that's pretty limited.

    I'm biased towards animals, and they are severely underrepresented by TFs, so they get my vote. (Yeah, I just disregarded the rest of my post up there.... oh well)
