    IF you could take all the characters from the beastwars universe and make five or so of them transmetal that werent who would you give an upgrade to. they would still have had the original form to. and what would their third mode be. tm2 also cool
    for me i would go with
    Stampy ( a kickass rabbit with perhaps a drill alt mode or a bad ass minitank
    Break. and have him also have some sort of submarine type mode.
    Scorponok with a flight mode
    tm2 version of quickstrike. just think of how messed up he would be.
    tm2 version of dead end or clawjaw. gotta get a squid in there somehow.
    and finally
    a transmetal Magmatron with a supercharged battle mode that was a combined vehicle made from all three pieces.

    Rattrap shouldn't have been a transmetal. (BTW, my fav BW character)

    Scorponok- with a tank mode with the claws turning into the treads and the tail becomes a gun...

    Lio Prime- someting similar the Tigatrons modes


    B'Boom and Bonecrusher would be able to combine into a sorta missile launcher and weapons carrier/tanker (similar to powerlinking)

    Snarl, would have a drill mode (since he is a tasmanian devil, its sort of an homage to taz, hed just spin around and wreck shop)

    Speaking of which, how come they never made Rhinox a Transmetal in the show? I mean they made the toy, so why leave him as the only Maximal not to get an update.

    Probably the cost, Wolfang was originally supposed to take Tigatron's place. But it was cheaper to modify Cheetor's render and do that instead. Basically minus Optimus Primal, any Transformer that was born on Earth via stasis pod or in a CR chamber/tank did not receive a Transmetal 1 upgrade. Then there are those who went through TM2 like Blackarachnia.

    Although they tried to make one with that one repaint, I would have liked to have seen Clawjaw get a Transmetal mode. A Deluxe-size mechanical squid just sounds awesome!

    Wolfang would be awesome, hungry like a wolf.

    Scorp for sure, especially since scorpions have an armor like shell

    I would say Rattrap, but it's kinda funny seeing him getting screwed on all the new upgrades

    Razorbeast
    Silverbolt
    Tigatron

    And of course Rattrap did get Transmetallised, in bth toy and cartoon form. It's definitely a shame, all the show characters who got stiffed on the TM upgrades that their toy versions got (Rhinox, Airazor, Waspinator and Terrorsaur).
    Armordillo would have made a kick-arse tankbot, and I'll definitely put in another vote for Scorponok. And I must admit I'm intrigued as to how Claw Jaw would have look as a proper Transmetal, and not just a green redeco with a circuit print.

    If I recall correctly, weren't there images of concept art for a TM Scorpy, as well as BA? Scorpy was a tank, and BA was a cycle....

    Leo Prime-his third alt mode is a Semi.

    BW Galvatron-Some with BW TM Megatrons but his drill mode as a fourth mode.

    Grimlock-His chould made him like a Slow plow for his 2nd mode.

    For me, Inferno. I know Scavenger was his Japanese Transmetal form, but I try and pretend the Japanese BW never existed. (no, this does not include BW 2 or BW Neo) Everybody else I would've wanted was Transmetal in toys or show.

    Just cast considerations. Thye wanted to keep a modest cast even when new charaxcters showed up. Making them all Transmetal would have had to force them to give Rhinox more spotlight and could have comprimised the story.

    I disagree, because if he didn't, we would have never had "Knievel mode"!:lol 

    And it should be noted that, while not actual Transmetals, Fuzors had many Transmetal properties. Most likely this is because Protoforms, without proper sheilding from stasis pods or organics (apparantly being reformatted from a protoform on earth is more effective than being a "regular" transformer), took the full force of the alien surge, hence their stasis pods malfunctioning. This also serves to explain how Primal was Transmetalized.

    I remember seeing those too. They weren't great shots though I think they were on a table or something? I'm pretty sure TM Dinobot was among the sketches, the thing about them is that they were a lot like the McDonald versions that were released. Perhaps those sketches were ditched and plugged into the Happy Meal figure development.

    Wapinator
    Inferno
    Dinobot (TM2 counterpart does not count, even though he looked badass)
    like most people, Scorponok
