    I think if the knee pieces forming the front weren't bright white a lot of the repetitive questioning would be negated. They stand out against the dark blue, making them more noticeable and making the alt mode look off.
    Personally, I think it looks pretty great. I like the alien hovercraft/BSG Cylon fighter shape.

    They did that, it was called Siege. People thought it was dumb because they all looked like their Earth modes with more greeble.

    Nah. That's still the Star Trek philosophy of "alien races but they're all still roughly humanoid."

    It's neat that Cybertronians wouldn't take on forms that translate to what Earthlings consider to be vehicles because they have completely different needs from humans.

    Exactly. It takes cues from those types of alien ships. Throw in the fighters from ID4 while we're on the subject.

    It vaguely reminds me of a snowspeeder from Empire Strikes back.

    The toy has an alt mode because we'd all riot if he didn't.

    The movie didn't call for him to transform, therefore no alt mode. Whether thats a fault of the movie is debatable (whether it should have called for it is a different story).

    SoundWave\'s alt-mode looks like as if he farted in front of Megatron, who scolded him for it, and now he lives the rest of his life in shame and regret, doing this pose.

    Wow Hasbro made alt modes worse than the ER Quintesson Judge. Pretzel engineering.

    The prequel scene was a "last minute" addition, so they didn't bother to go through the whole effort of designing alt-modes and transformation rigs for the majority of the characters in the scene.
