    ah now i understand why people hate it, for some reason as a kid i thought the turret was an upgrade or it was some sort of weird alien tank mode

    Galvatron should be a silver and pink striped flat nosed truck that folds inside out into a g1 accurate robot mode.


    I would unironically be for more Truck Megs/Galvs tho ngl

    Did a quick digibash to see how this would look:

    Probably going to do some more variations on Prime's eyes, so is it fine if I post them here?

    my design prefernce was always making primes trailer actually useful OR integrating it into his robot mode.

    As much as I dont like Rid 2015, making prime's cab and trailer apart of his body make me so damn happy

    Hasbro could and should be getting away with more retooling/repaints/whatever cheap toy making tactics, if it means more money for other Transformers things. Better than those old toy molds being sold for boat ballasts in Hong Kong or whatever. Of course, cost cutting is often just cost cutting, not preserving for another aspect.

    Both Megatron and Galvatron should be a vehicle that was designed around its gun. The gun is the tool of war and that metaphor in his alt-mode should be preserved.

    The A-10 Thunderbolt II, for example, was literally designed around its cannon, the GAU-8 "BRRRRRRRRTTTT" Avenger.

    It in particular could work for Megatron, and the same design process could be used for made-up jets, helicopters, and spaceships, Earth or alien.

    I am a staunch supporter of the "Optimus's trailer is super mode bits" party, not as big a fan of the trailer being a part of his core robot mode, but not super opposed to it, Though I'd prefer if that style was kept for characters like Motormaster (preferably with a design not as ass as his sunbow design) and the cancelled turbomaster Hyperdrive (plz bring him back)

    I remember that the Beast Hunters Optimus toy had green eyes and I always thought that was kinda cool.

    I would do a digibash of PMOP with green eyes but I can't find a picture that I like.

    Marvel PM OP is cool, though that's mostly because while his design is pretty much just a beefed up Optimus, they didn't do the Ginrai thing where he was regular Optimus, before digivolving into regular Optimus, but bigger. If we go with the more super robots style of entering super mode during the battle and still having a core robot mode, I'd prefer if super modes were more like the UT or CRID where they're pretty different design wise. Which is also why I'm generally fine with the takara legends God Ginrai as my PM Optimus, since he barely used his core robot in the comics, if ever, and mostly just went from truck+trailer to combined mode. though I would like the PE upgrade kits though they're pretty much impossible to find nowadays fml.

    It just occurred to me that this is also how Action Master Prime looks:

    I say Ultimate. If he had God Bomber/Apex Armor on, then he'd be a Mega.
