    Not sure if anyone else has noticed the lack of diversity in vehicles of TFP.

    I'm not complaining but I wonder if they plan on having any other type.

    So for we have different jets, different cars, one motorcycle, and one Helicopter.

    I wonder if they'll do Tanks like brawl or warpath?
    And will they do any triple changers, and what types would they be?
    I'd like a submersival/jet like depthcharge!

    Probably, tank doesn't suit the town and humans' habitat.
    Decepticons do not seem to get in touch with humans, in most cases.

    Between Prime and DotM there has been a severe lack of diversity in alt modes.

    True, but most battles haven't taken place in cities. they've been in isolated areas for the most part. This Autobot tank could mainly be for back up

    I'm surprised we don't have a tank yet. But you gotta wonder why one would want to be a tank when you can just choose a faster car then deploy a missile launcher like Breakdown.

    Personally I'm happy with the current diversity. Yeah there's a lot of similar classes of vehicles, but with the exception of the Vehicons, they all have unique looks to them. Several car bots don't bother me as long as they all look like different kinds of cars. Same goes for jets.

    I also think that as the show progresses, the variety of vehicles will grow.

    I understand what you're saying but taking that same logic, why would you want to be a car instead of a fighter jet with missles that shout out without you having to transform?

    Just personal choice of the bot I guess.

    I was mainly asking this question cuz in WFC and FOC, we're getting a little more diversity when it comes to vehicles.

    grimmlock, yes, even, when battles take places on humans' "property", there are no random people around, but being in disguise isn't a bad thing, still.
    I am not sure, if a transformer tank could clamber on mountain and jump though some rut.
    Autobots prefer to ride among humans, car is better for this kind of job.

    Well, I have a feeling that Seaspray wasn't a car, but we never got to see him.

    Does he count?

    Vehicle modes aren't much more than transportation in this show. They're seldom used, Arcee the exception, for little more than just moving really fast from one place to another.

    Unfortunately every Transformers program has fallen into that trap once the whole 'Robots in Disguise' thing is revealed. :mad

    Isn't Arachnid a triple changer? Robot mode, drill, and helicopter. I don't know if she has her spider mode anymore.

    But I do agree would like to see more different types of vehicles but nothing to unrealistic

    She's a bit of an oddity cuz she does have a drilling mode but doesn't have a drilling vehicle form. and her spider form seems to be a half transformation cuz she doesn't actually transform into a spider.

    she's def a cool and unique character though!

    Am I the only one who is (secretly) craving someone to transform into something a bit strange, illogical and crucially a non vehicle. where are all the mecha dinosaurs, guns, camera's or microscopes alt modes. Its has happened in the movies in the first one where that little decepticon turns into a little cd player then later his head turns into a mobile phone. the decepticons could maybe infiltraite the team primes base this way and we could end up with some more varied toys and some scary the thing alike scenes were a con appears almost from nowhere and everyone is paranoid

    I personally don't like them being anthying but vehicles. Never liked the idea of robots that don't transform into moving vehicles. Just my opinion.

    Turn to hairdryer and kill Miko? It would be hilarious.
    Turn into a notebook and get rid of Raf.
    But the best one - turn into Ratched needs.

    Whenever it's time to do something productive, Ratchet;s needs would grow legs and run away, and he would cry: "I NEEDED THAT!"
