    As in - Cars, Trucks, Jets, Animals, Guns etc

    I've long liked Motorcycle transformers. Being much smaller than most other vehicles, the designer has far fewer parts to work into a convincing humanoid form, and as a result Motorcycles typically get some very unique and intriguing transformations which I like.

    Its for the same reason that I enjoy the various Beast Era Primes, in as much as the level of creativity required to transform one four limbed upright humanoid form into another four limbed upright humanoid form and yet maintain an obviously unique look and personality in both.

    Top of the list would be beast mode transformers. Anything from a Dinosaur to a worm, I find cool.

    The others would be Jeep/Hummer type vehicles, tanks, and jets. Only time I find a car cool is if it has a GM model alt mode.

    I would have to go with military vehicles. Tanks, choppers, jeeps, jets, light armor, etc.

    I really like the alt modes of the autobots G1 vehicles. Especially Jazz and Prowl.

    Definitely jets. F-15s were always my favorite fighters, so I was naturally a fan of the Seekers.

    Blue Cars.

    (Like Tracks, Blurr, Sideburn, Cybertron Hotshot, ROTF Jolt, and Smokescreen)

    Luxurious sports car except ROTF Sideways.


    Helicopter, Motorcycles and Tanks too.

    Big fan of the seekers. But also the military styled transformers as well.

    Cars definitely. I can't remember being as a kid if I liked cars because of Transformers, or if I liked Transformers because they were cars and robots.
    Sideswipe, Jazz and Smokescreen were always my favorite G1 Autobots because they were cars I liked a lot as a kid, and still like today.
    Whenever I look at a car, I try to imagine it as a robot. I imagine it transforming and standing as tall as an average tree.

    Helicopters or Airplanes, especially big ones, like the AN 225, MI 24.

    Easy, Cars and Fighter Aircraft.

    Cars because they're everywhere and its fun looking at even the most mundane of cars and wondering how it would transform.

    Fighter Aircraft, well, cos they're just plain awesome. It flies high, fast, and can unload the dakka at a phenomenal rate.

    Optimus Prime's cab over engine truck.. I had a blue one for my sand pit before Transformers came out. Then when Optimus was one I knew he would always be my favourite Transformer...

    Military vehicles, for me !

    If it has to be cars : then let it be European sports models.

    I know its not very original, but I like cars and jets.

    Takes me back to G1 when I was a kid...

    But if you think about a race of robots at war, TANKS always come to mind...


    Not a big fan of organics or animals as alt modes...

    IMO the Alternators were the best alt modes we've ever had!

    I can't say I actually give a shit about real world cars. but DAMN some of the Autobots' alt modes look so hot.

    When I see stuff like classics Hot Rod, movie Sideswipe, G1 Jazz or Animated Blurr, I really can't give any other answer than: cars.

    I fall deeply in love with Helicopters.
    But a nice sleek jet is awesome to, and a streamlined car? Oooohh. Tingles my fancy.
