    I just got this idea somehow as I was waking up so it must be one of those 'brain is just starting to function' level weirdness ideas.

    A small subline of country themed transformers. Each one is an animal and based on a country:

    USA - A bald eagle
    China - either a panda or a chinese dragon
    Austrailia - a kangaroo
    Canada - a Moose or Beaver
    Spain - a Bull (after the running of the bulls/Bullfighting)

    If you want to make it educational you can include country fact cards with it. What are your thoughts. It is a bizarre silly idea. But those are the type you get when you first wake up.. Also what are some other Nations/Animals combos you think would work as a transformer.

    (in all honesty I just want a Moose Transformer)

    Erector was gonna be a beaver.

    I'd want Canada's to be a moose. Moose are badass. I've seen moose hit by cars and just walk away while the cars get smashed to fuck.

    Love this thread. I'd love to see Hasbro work with the Olympic Games organizers to create a limited run of such TFs as promotional material for the Games. That it means the return of Beast Wars-style TFs is only a plus.

    A few more ideas:

    Africa - lion
    Middle East - camel
    New Zealand - kiwi
    Japan - crane
    India - tiger
    Russia - bear
    Malaysia - hornbill
    Indonesia - Komodo dragon
    South America - condor
    Philippines - carabao
    Thailand - elephant
    United Kingdom - unicorn

    Being from the UK I'd suggest our transformer rep being a Lion given thats our national symbol - which makes little sense really as its not an indiginous animal, but then a hedgehog probably wouldn't be particularly inspiring, unless you replaced its spikes with missiles.

    I wanted to give you guys the lion, until I realized that Africa needed a mascot that wasn't an elephant, as the elephant goes to Thailand. So I gave y'all the unicorn instead.

    Compromise, then. Octopus. :lol

    Ah Unicorns are cool, and fit with the whole Ancient Briton theme. I'd suggest swapping Indias Tiger and Thailands Elephant around though.

    Pretty sure that was implied even before you posted the thread. Just how things work :)

    Maybe Japan could be represented by a catfish, in reference to the legend that a catfish on the bottom causes earthquakes when it wakes up.

    The Aussie kangaroo guy better goddamn better be Star Upper, or I may just have to eat people.
