    I mentioned to SydneyY the other day that I'd bought Universe Treadbolt because he kinda reminded me of Batman (blue and yellow colour scheme, stealthy). I also bought the Bat Optimus Primal because he's the goddamned Bat Prime. So what other TFs could fit a Batman theme?

    So far, I figure Nightbeat works. He's a detective and has the colour scheme again. I'm open to characters who look the part or who's bios fit, so any other suggestions?

    G1 Prowl, due to both being ... nope, not a cop. Logical. And strategists.

    Ani Prowl, due to both being ninja superhero cops.

    Mirage, for that invisible bit. Batman's often unseen, at least.

    If you want to delve into the Rogue's Gallery some, Hellbat makes a nice Manbat in name only at least.

    Comics Megatron makes a good Joker analogue.

    Ravage is Catwoman bait. For that matter, so's Cheetor.

    nightbeat sounds sensible to me.

    ultra magnus always struck me as a commissioner Gordon sort, and as far as villains go you've got black arachnia making a serviceable poison ivy.

    um as you can see i've not given this a lot of thought.

    Hmm, good suggestions. I always thought Classics Megatron made a fairly good Joker with his green and purple colouring.

    G1 Mindwipe totally fits the Batman theme. And Animated Megs can be Ra's al Ghul - he's a brilliant strategist/swordsman with a goatee.

    Kinda makes you wish there was a Botanica TF, eh?

    RID megatron makes a good joker, with that white face and a whole lot of useless transformations ( death traps!)

    Punch/CounterPunch for 2 face? Literally!

    Energon Shockwave makes a riddler of somesort, just take that hugeass left arm as the cane

    ^But there is a penguin TF already, Break can just take the spot, no? He's not very stylish in robot mode though!

    You know, Sledge, I was thinking about this during the day (I had an uneventful day :D ). What about Boss?

    He is Mach Road in Japan and he uses a supersonic wave attack. A bit bat-like bio along with the look.

    Holy wow. With that altmode and head sculpt, Boss is just dying to be repainted into a 1989 Batmobile that turns into a robotic Dark Knight. :eek:

    I've just remembered that it was Jarodimus who told me Boss' alt mode is known for its Batmobile look. I knew it was too brilliant for me to come up with it my own :(

    Animated Prowl- He's black armor, has a stoic face, glides around, is a ninja, and likes cats.

    Bats and him even misabuse a gadget given to them

    I don't know about you guys but I always thought Starscream was the perfect Joker.

    Animated Blur alt mode is fit more as batman beyond. Yet, if throw a cape, yeah he looks good as regular batman. ..Boss can be a good classic Batman. (does we cast because of looks or character? I'm confuse..)

    I'm Batman! Channeling Christian Bale voice :lol

    I think G2 Smokejumper's mold would make a good Batman.
