    Nothing fancy. I'm just a bit of a fembot nut. And have found myself often wondering what alt mode Greenlight - Transformers Wiki and Lancer - Transformers Wiki had in G1. Since, their alts are never shown I figured why not toss the topic around for general discussion. So, fellow tfwers what alt modes do you think G1 Greenlight and Lancer had? What would updated versions of them look like in a WFC/FOC game or line? Or a Classics / Generations line?

    >>>Also, feel free to use the thread for discussion on other characters who never showed their alt modes. Such as Actionmasters or obscure comic (or other media) characters that never transformed.<<<

    I always figured Greenlight turned into a fanncy car and that's why (in universe) she's called Gteenlight

    I thought Lancer would turn into a pickup truck. Also I too am a Fembot nut and Chromia is actually my favorite Trandformer ever.

    Since you brought up Action Masters, would Turbomaster turn into a helicopter? That's what I thought.

    I remember I once imagined Greenlight as a construction vehicle, a crane I think, but that was a long time ago. Lancer, I only guess, would either be some sort of car or motorcycle.

    Did they ever show their vehicle modes in the Wings of Honor comic?

    These are good questions. Alpha Trion never had an alt mode in the Sunbow cartoon either.
    I have the AFT Titanium Saints Alpha Trion figure, which turns into a space cruiser. It's a nicely done alt mode, but I'm not sure it's 100% right for Alpha Trion.
    There is no kibble at all on Greenlight and Lancer, no clues.

    Medical vehicles such as doctor's cars have greenlights on them (here in the UK) so maybe she's some kind of medic? So a rapid response medical vehicle (but not an ambulance) could be her alt mode?

    A Lancer is an old military term, so maybe Lancer is some kind of military vehicle?

    Anybody want to hazard a guess at what Actionmaster Krok transformed in to?

    I want to say a crocodile, but it might just have been a krok of sh.......................

    Maybe it's the shovel on his chest but I like to think Rollout had been a small combiner like Micromaster Devestator who also had a shovel for a chest.

    Mainframe always reminds me of Energon Signal Flare

    I know this sounds sexist, but, man, the first thing I thought of when I saw the screen grab of Lancer is that she transforms into a vacuum cleaner.

    Not a cheap vacuum, mind you, but something fancy. Like a high-end, Cybertronian Dyson vacuum.

    I'm not making it better, am I?

    If it helps they've been described as amateur historians and understudy to the Archaeometrist, Glyph and Scientist...though function does not always influence alt modes...I thought I would share that info...

    Based on colors, I'd say Greenlight a John Deere garden tractor, a nice one, that will work with attachments like front end loader and auger for post holes. Lance looks like the more affordable Husqvarna brand. These two middle aged ladies can do some serious gardening.

    Or, they could just both be fanny packs...

    I sadly imagine Greenlight as another car...i blame the body design and my lack of creativity.

    Well they are Autobots and from G1 so probably some sort of 4-wheeled vehicles like cars or trucks.

    Firestar and Moonracer don't seem like they'd be hard...Firestar uses the Generations Kup mold in her TF Legends artwork and appearance...and...Moonracer would work perfectly from TF Knockout with a little retooling...Hasbro / TakaraTomy need to really get those two out...

    At the time of Autobot rebellion I think they did not have alt modes yet. Only when they began the fight with the decepticons.

    I think I did not see anyone transform other than the Autobots from the future like ramhorn, Blurr, blaster and Co.

    Edit :
    Nevermind, I mixed them up with other fembots.
