Interesting altmodes that'd be awesome for the Animated Aesthetic?

    Recently, I had a dream. I dreamed of a popemobile transformer, that turned into Alpha Trion. I dreamed of a baseformer that did not turn into a city, oh no, but a monorail system. I dreamed of a thread, on this very website, where my fellow dreamers might share their visions.


    Do you have a dream?

    Always loved me some bullet train-formers.

    Seconded! The Animated aesthetic could really bring out each member's personality quirks - Motormaster's bullying, Breakdown's paranoia, Wildrider's psychoism, Dragstrip's victory obsession, and Dead End's depression.

    I have wanted an animal-based decepticon group, either terrorcons, predacons or even an updated tripredacus, to counter the dinobots.

    Hasbro said something last year about getting more utilitarian alt modes into transformers through animated, like tractors and such.
    So far we've only heard of rubbish truck Wreckgar.

    I think a forklift truck could make an interesting transformer, lots of potential for different sorts of weapons there.

    Maaaaaan that would be awesome!

    SPECIALLY if it was the Animated version of movie Bonecrusher.

    Tractorformer would be awesome.

    Also:
    Microlite
    Ice Cream Van
    One of those dump-water-on-forest-fire planes
    Quad bike

    (If there's room for the humour I'd also like a paddleboat, surfboard, haymaker-thresher, and a mobile library.)

    Also agree a couple of Stuntacons (all of them would be a bit too much, I like the limited cast) - definitely involving a depressed, narcissistic, paranoid Dead End.

    Y'know, if they tweek Classic's Mirage's design slightly, he'd work great for Animated. He already has a lot of the animated style in him.

    A Battleship would be cool... but something like a Tug-Boat would be more likely for Animated. Bring on Seaspray! Or how about Cosmos? A UFO would fit in with Animated nicely.

    I ask you. Nay, I beg you. If you are going to Botcon, for the love of god ask the Hasbro panel about the chances of a popemobile-bot. That would be the most amazing thing ever.

    Animated Predaking would make a nice rival for the Dinobots.

    Maybe he'll use those banana-shaped floaters as weapons :D
