    I think the best alt-Mode for Optimus is a coherent topic.

    That's a tough one. Megatron's gone through several alt modes over different incarnation, but Prime has stayed pretty much a truck throughout.

    I'm torn between his G1 and Galaxy Force incarnations...though Star Convoy's a pretty bad mofo, too.

    A tractor trailer whose standard cargo trailer has been replaced with a caged animal transport ... inside you'd see an ape leaning against Rover.

    A modernized tractor trailer is the base form for Prime. A fire truck is acceptable also since it seemed to work well for the RID Prime.

    I've always liked him as a Firetruck. I'm sorta biased because RID was my "G1", but other than that, it gives his alt-mode some use imo.

    For Prime, hopefully something that rolls and polutes. A giant cannon would be nice, too.

    Primal, something that likes bananas and scratches itself. Again, a cannon, preferably a giant one, would rock.


    I'm content as long as it follows those guidelines.

    Prime = Trukk
    Primal = Munky :D 

    And the cannon is sticking out of his crotch in robot mode, yes?

    Oh, this is much tougher than the Megatron thread.

    I LOVE the idea of Prime being a fire engine like in RID. Big and powerful, a great heroic symbol, and I can easily see many of the fire engines life saving equipment (fire hoses, ladder) being converted to offensive weapons like they were. It made perfect sense. Now, I'd take a page out of the Spychanger and Titanium versions of the figure ans skip the smaller robot mode altogether, though...

    HOWEVER... I love gorillas, and Primal just somehow made perfect sense with the alt mode.

    I just don't know!!!!

    A Bat!

    Really I'd go with either fire truck or Cybertronian truck.
    Both are awesome to me.

    but that's if we are not talking about Primal.

    Prime should always be a John Deer Tractor in John Deer colors.

    Basically, any kind of big, pre-dominantly red truck would probably fit Optimus Prime, since that generally is what he's been in most continuities. Although with a fire truck, we've at least been given some measure of explanation as to where the rear section of the vehicle goes when he transforms into a robot (even though I ain't a big fan of Super Modes myself).
