    G1 Soundwave could work as an actionmaster if they aren't going to give him an updated alternate mode.

    I do like his Animated alt mode and would like it incorporated into at least one modern iteration of G1 Soundwave.

    This is my alt mode pick for Soundwave: The T-98 Kombat.

    IMO, it's beyond perfect. Every time I see this vehicle, my thoughts go directly to Soundwave. I've even found two pictures of one of these in blue, and it makes me think even more of Soundwave.

    And when you have Blaster turn into an ordinary SUV like a Ford Flex, it's a good contrast between the two.

    There was a power up, but it was a side effect. The primary purpose was an alternate fuel source. The Nebulans had poisoned their fuel sources for Transformers, so they had to use the Powermasters as an alternate source. The PM guys had to eat 10x as much as normal to fuel their partners.

    That'd either be really amazing or really horrible. Well at the very least it's a good weight loss program one way or another.

    I'll go with horrible. They would have to be eating non-stop for the periods of time that they aren't being an engine. They wouldn't have time for any activities that didn't involve meals. It also wouldn't leave much opportunity to sleep, as I don't think they get much rest when operating as an engine.

    Mirage could be the Transformers version of John Cena since I can't see him and you can't see him.

    You underestimate the speed at which I can inhale food.

    Despite being pretty much an over glorified battery for a giant transforming robot, how do they not gain weight? And how do they eat so much without getting full? You can only eat so much before you start throwing it back up.

    I think the Godmaster concept is better, and I'd love to know why it hasn't been explored further outside of Masterforce. There's a lot of story telling potential with it if you ask me.

    Grimlock was truly one of the few G1 bots that could experience Father's day.

    Optimus has only transformed back into vehicle mode twice throughout the bayverse. I still hate thinking about this

    In the beginning of tf 2 when he gets dropped out of the plane and transforms and then transforms back into truck mode after he lands on the ground.

    In tf4 he turns back into his flatnose mode after dropping off cade and the others after cemetery wind attacked them.

    These are the ONLY moments we see him actually transforms back to truck mode

    Not the hugest fan of the Dinobots but I still like them enough. If the four member group, sans Grimlock if for a while, ever gets explored more like how Barber did for them in Punishment and Redemption, it would
    actually make me appreciate them more as not only individual mechs with their own outlook/ideas on things but aren't just going to follow Grimlock's orders without proper reason.

    Another minor thing I want to mention is that, while this is going to be taboo for a lot of people, is that I think at least two members of the Dinbots could at least have a differnt name that doesn't start with a letter
    "S"? Yadello/Yanse? Rail? Quyouvenos??? These nicknames I came up on the fly are sh***y as hell and would never label these guys as such, but I would still want at least these two guys to have a name that doesn't
    start with an "S".

    Huh. I thought it would have been more.
