    If you could create a Transformer, it's personality, the vehicle/creature it
    converts into and it's faction what would you choose?
    What about it's name?
    Every vehicle and creature seems to be used already so let's get creative.

    I'd make a group of three farming/construction machines with the personalitys
    of three redneck brothers.

    They'd be Decepticons but part of their own sub-faction.

    One would be an advanced rotary drilling rig a giant thresher of sorts and an earth mover like this with the long chainsaw type blade.

    What about you?



    Also, I'm sorry if this topic is misplaced or a repeat topic.
    I searched around and did not see one like it.

    Why I'd create Backscatter, the mad (in more ways than one) Autobot Brainmaster Scientist! See my sig too, but it's not a URL. Alt mode is presently an SR-71 Stealth Fighter.

    I've always had a desire to see an Autobot team in the same vein as the Predacons. Maybe comprised of less-ferocious and more woodland based animal forms. Because there aren't enough unconventional beast-formers and Autobot beasts in general.
    I'd trade the combiner gimmick in favor of having them all be triplechangers instead, because the notion of a cute fox turning into a little whirlybird copter amuses me greatly and having an all-terrain vehicle turn into a mechanical ox in mid-charge would just kick arse.

    And a big cat would HAVE to also transform into a black and red SAAB Drakken fighter jet. And be named "Turbocat". :)

    Oh,wow! :D  I never thought of TM Rhinox as a tank. I always thought of him as a rhino on skies,skiing down mountains and smashing through trees.

    But yeah, my idea does sound a lot like Beast Wars Transmetals, but I envisioned more robotic animals with vehicle bits hanging off them for the sake of having the parts to form a convincing vehicle mode. Not a gorilla on a boogieboard. :)

    but blue with a white stripe down him but off-center, like animated BB. and his little buddy, the semi-shy but awesome-when-he-wants-to-be mechanic Socket: http://blog.martian.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/carver1.jpg

    with their weapons specialist, their giant father-figure, Cog (personality like General Iroh from Avatar) : http://www.uncrate.com/men/images/batman-begins-tumbler.jpg

    I would create the ultimate bot of lulz. Combining every source of genuine human hilarity known to our race as stated and containing them in the robot's main processors. I would ensure that he/she was of good nature then finalize the robot with a vehicle mode that would suit it best.

    Actually, the robot I speak of is in my sig. Basically me as a robot if I were funnier. (or funny at all)

    My hunter green Saturn SL-1 has an Autobot symbol on the hood. If I were savvy with names, I'd have one for him already. As it stands, I call him Downshift.

    Fiat Multipla transformer, hands down!
    Might not be pretty, but he would be special!
