Discussion Topic: If you could have...

Posted by:
TriPredRavage at 2008-06-14 2:32 pm

's been a while since we've had a good discussion topic, so I thought I'd throw one together.  Today’s topic: If you could have any Transformers character appear in a Transformers live action movie, who would they be and what would they transform into?  It can be any existing Transformer from previous continuities, it can be any alternate mode you want, you name it!  Whatever you want.

Personally, I would like to see Cheetor with an alternate mode of the Cheetah MMPV which you can read a little bit about here at Wikipedia. I just think it would be too cool to have the young and spunky character that we’ve all come to know and love. a super armored behemoth.  His speed would be on the lower side in comparison to what we’re used to, but I think it would give a really interesting interpretation to what we’ve come to know.  

So how about you?  Who and what would you guys like to see?

I would want the Arialbots. Silverbolt would be an SR-71 Blackbird, Fireflight would be an F-18 Hornet, Air Raid would be an F-117 Nighthawk, Skydive would be an F-35 Lightning II (similar to an F-22 Raptor)and Slingshot would be an A-10 Thunderbolt.
KilledbyDeath said,  - 2008-06-14 15:47:00
Arialbots are taken and I figure the Dinobots would be tops on everyone else's lists so I'll go and say Sentinel Prime from the Megatron origin comic. He was bad ass, up until...
I'm not sure what he could change into, but he does have that lethal battle armor. I think this is a character with untapped potential, I also figure he'll never be in a movie. Well how's that for being different?
ALM said,  - 2008-06-14 15:54:17
I would have Nighbeat because he is Cool. Nighbeat would transform into a Toyota Celica GTS because, in a weird way, the car suits him
Sabrblade. said,  - 2008-06-14 16:15:43
This is kinda hard for me since I can't quite make up my mind. I was always fond of the BW characters. Maybe Cheetor (matured) would be cool as some sort of sleek sports car or race car. Or Rattrap maybe as some small street cleaning vehicle (hey he was rat before). Or BW Dinobot as a large motorcycle or ATV. Or Terrorsaur as a small red stealth plane. Or Waspinator as a bi-plane or helicopter.

BW aside, I think it would be cool to have A matured Hot Rod/Rodimus (Prime) as hot rod-themed sports car that could attach to/separate from a "trailer"-thing. But he wouldn't be a replacement for Optimus, but rather as an equally-ranked partner and friend. Kinda like G1 Optimus and Rodimus teamed up in "A Dream is Born, Double Convoy" to beat G1 Galvatron. Or like how they were partnered in "Return of Convoy" as Star Convoy and his Micromaster partner Hot Rodimus.

Forgive my lack of specifying particular car/vehicle brands and types.
Skidmark said,  - 2008-06-14 16:31:00
I'd go with Sixshot,cuz he's my favorite decepticon.All his modes would be cybertronian.
mkbauch said,  - 2008-06-14 16:34:36
On one hand, I'd like to say Prowl transforming into a Chevy Tahoe (law enforcement modified-of course), but really I would die a happy man if I got to see Blitzwing in a live action Transformers flick. Have him transform between the German/Dutch armored personell carrier GTK Boxer and a MiG-29UB German fighter, and by golly give him the split personalities and thick German accet from the new cartoon and you've got a heck of a character for live action.

As for Hot Rod/Rodimus, I could see him transforming into a Pontiac Firebird. The last model to come out I think was '01 so a movie would be a brilliant way to promote any new models for the Firebird.
Tramp said,  - 2008-06-14 18:03:30
I would have the original four female Autobots: Elita-1, Chromia, Firestar, and Moonracer. I would make Elita a truck, much like Prime is, but far more sleek and modern, Probably a hot pink Super Crewser-
For Chromia, I'd probably make her into a Chevy Tahoe-;jsessionid=6B2AACBFB2776BAF0A5F981058836EEC, For Firestar, I'd go Ford Ranger 4x4 outfitted for Fire Rescue- (I like Ford trucks; sue me).
For Moonracer, I'd make her a Pontiac Vibe-;jsessionid=3CB3BF20820D5F6F7FC135B25379E43A
Oh, just for completeness, I would scrap Arcee being a motorcycle and make her this instead, a pastel pink Saturn Sky convertable-;jsessionid=FE68A620D9A53B45794E9544608F94D3
Perceptor said,  - 2008-06-14 18:20:58
This will come as a shock to some, but I'd choose Perceptor. And yes, I'd want him turning into a working microscope!
quickfire said,  - 2008-06-14 18:27:21
It's been a while, but I would like to have seen Dogfight as an altered F-22 Raptor
Luketroop said,  - 2008-06-14 19:29:52
It would be nice to see the other seekers but I am looking foward to Wheeljack the most.
ThunderCracker97 said,  - 2008-06-14 19:57:48
the combaticons, any military vehicles, just as long as they form Bruticus as that would be epic..
cyclones said,  - 2008-06-14 20:09:14
omega supreme would be a train
StormTiger said,  - 2008-06-14 20:16:02
I would like to see Omega Supreme, but as a space shuttle with its launch fuel tank and boosters, and possibly the crawler in the mix. dreadwind and darkwing as a 117 nighthawk, and b2 bomber would be cool too.
ilovetransformers said,  - 2008-06-14 20:36:49
i would love to see the stunticons
Perceptor said,  - 2008-06-14 21:13:31
Omega Supreme as a Space Shuttle... That's not bad! Nice idea.
Dogzilla said,  - 2008-06-14 22:14:26
I guess Grimlock. An origin simialr to the original Marvel G1 or IDW comics would be cool. In fact he and the Dinobots could be fit into continuity as having fought and buried Megatron in the ice(it was only implied that Megatron crash landed in the film, regardless of what the prequel comics showed). There were no machined on earth back then to copy and their protoforms don't handle earth's "organic" terrain very well, then they spot some fossils in some rock and mimic those. Grimlock would be a t-rex of course but would be very mechanical like Scorponok was in the first film. Then later in the film, when Grimlock and the surviving Dinobots (they took on Megatron for goodness sake) are found and revived (maybe by Ratchet just like in issue #7 ofthe original comic) they keep their dino modes because they are better suited for combat than cars and trucks. And this sets up some nice friction between Grimlock and Optimus. Dino modes don't offer a very good disguise, but Grimlock doesn't care about blending in, he's here to fight a war. Just as long as he talks like in the new IDW comics or issues #8 & #27 of the comic, i.e. no "Me Grimock". As for the Decepticons, I'd really like to see Blitzwing. Mainly because he's a warrior with a sense of honor. He's loayl to the Decepticon cause, not necessarily Megatron. Like in "Five Faces of Darkness" G1 season 3 premiere mini, he stood against Galvatron because it was the right thing to do for all Transformers. An honorable Decepticon, that's a great concept. As for his alt. modes yeah a current model think a modern T-series Russian tank and MiG jet would be appropriate.
Autobutt said,  - 2008-06-14 22:15:02
wheelie as a motor-scooter!!

no. never.

ok really i would like to see Brawn as a military troop transport vehicle (bradley maybe?). he would be the "brawn" of the team, taking the deceps head on! awesome-destroying-buildings-and-modern-surroundings scenes!
RooFerrigno said,  - 2008-06-14 22:57:24
ok so get this


so there mining for some new ore in the new movie....blasting away at some mysteryous metal in what was once a valcano.....

and there is Terrorsaur in stasis lock from the quantum surge...and to boot he is half-way into transmetal when it happened, thus protecting him from the heat all this time

when he come's to, shipped off to where ever the new goverment secret base is....he scan's the base and comes up with the best possible there
an RAH-66 Comanche
jumps into the air...transforms and goes stealth....and faintly hear him say....."terrorise....."
KilledbyDeath said,  - 2008-06-14 23:25:36
Dogzilla I very much like your ideas.
Budgrimlock said,  - 2008-06-14 23:42:50
wow, I'm the only one to even suggest this...SHOCKWAVE? he could turn into any weapon vehicle (tank, etc.) as long as it's at least part translucent purple and he has the "Shockwave" head.
Skyfired said,  - 2008-06-15 01:51:33
Skywarp=B2 Spirit bomber
ZhaneX said,  - 2008-06-15 02:36:17
I'd like to see Unicron. I think it would be so awesome to see a live action Unicron! And I just read soemthing on Wikipedia, that makes me think of Tidal Wave! since I read that Micheal Bay was looking into an aircraft carrier, and I think it would be so awesome if he decided to use Tidal Wave!
starscreamnumba1 said,  - 2008-06-15 03:15:02
i would like cyclonus from armada series coz of his personality and bring in the guy who did his voice or someone similar

he would transform into his helicopter mode
megatroptimus said,  - 2008-06-15 07:31:17
Perhaps Hound as a sector7 buggy or hummer.M Bay has GM license, but we probably won't see a Tracks because of alternators...and he just wouldn't be the same as another car.
ultra magnus said,  - 2008-06-15 07:35:56
i'd like to see unicron.
cyclones said,  - 2008-06-15 09:18:34
starscreme as a sr 71
Tyscream said,  - 2008-06-15 09:45:54
I would very much like to see a movie Shockwave or Ultra Magnus.
luketroop said,  - 2008-06-15 10:42:17
They already made a Shockwave in the videogame sohe might work.
warlord5 said,  - 2008-06-15 12:03:11
I would like to see thundercracker and skywarp as a A-10 warthog and a B-2 stealth bomber
maybe a nascar racer as jazz wud suck or smokescreen,an iPod as blaster,or an aston martin hotshot

this idea reaks and wud be terrible no one listen to me
lord megatron said,  - 2008-06-15 12:19:34
well, my votes would probably go for, Unicron, Tarantulas, Skywarp, Tidalwave(DEFINETLY!!!), Alpha Trion, Shockwave(I doubt they'll use him though because of his appearence in the first game), Grimlock, and Megatron not as Galvatron.
optimusp13 said,  - 2008-06-15 12:21:09
Id like to see Mirage as a blue Shelby GT 500 KR Mustang. I think it would be cool!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-06-15 13:52:40
TPR, would it be alright if I started another discussion topic similar to this one, but with some differences and focused on Animated instead of the Movie?
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-06-15 14:25:32
Uh, technically, Sabr, you can do whatever you want, but is that really nescessary? I mean, what are you going to ask? Who would you like to see in animated? I mean, is it really worth doing right now, or would you rather save it for a week and put it up then once this discussion topic subsides. I mean, discussion topics are made for us to interact with one another. If we're already doing that, it's not really worth flooding the news feed with them. Personally, I'd wait a few days and let this one subside. But, whatever, it's up to you and the Lukis Bros.
budgrimlock said,  - 2008-06-15 14:27:11
I thought of another one. What if the decepticons lured the autobots to a myterious new city...and then it transformed into TRYPTICON...
Kabat242 said,  - 2008-06-15 15:13:26
I would like to see wheeljack in orginal Lancia stratos alt. mode, or in alternators/binaltech version. Of course he should be a mad scientist. (so he must explode about 4 times in movie :) )
kntstar said,  - 2008-06-15 16:03:32
I would like to se Blitzwing, AstroTrain, Springer. Broadside, or any other triple changer
TFfan92 said,  - 2008-06-15 16:27:51
blitzwing as an abrams tank and an f-15
Jumpercliff said,  - 2008-06-15 16:49:08
Ya had to ask? I would definitely want Wheeljack. He's my #1 favorite Autobot, and he could be one of those new Maseratis out there.
wasp3000 said,  - 2008-06-15 18:52:37
IT would be cool if ramjet or thrust was a SR-71 blackbird, or if they had onslaught is troop carier, and the constructacons so they could form davastator.
Ed said,  - 2008-06-15 21:05:31
I can't believe nobody picked the Head Masters, from the G1 series. could you imagine Fort Max and Scorpinok and the rest. I don't even care that scorpinok was in the movie all ready. I have a spin for it. It like OP wheeler. The one in the movie was a recon bot. That Megs don't know about after the failure the real deal comes and bring the rest of the decp head masters for support. Which would bring fort max and crew.
prfctcellrulz said,  - 2008-06-15 21:13:47
No contest! UNICRON!!! (Of course he'd HAVE TO transform into his planet mode!) OH! And MAYBE FORTRESS MAXIMUS AND/OR GALVATRON!!!
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-06-15 22:17:44
I didn't mean right away, TPR. Of course I'm going to let this one kick in more before I start another. Besides, this one is "What transformer(s) you'd want to see in TF movie, and what they'd turn into." Mine would be similar, but with several additional aspects besides "who and what".
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-06-15 22:54:21
Sorry if I came across wrong there, Sabr, I figured that's what you meant, I just didn't know your extent. Yeah, I don't care if you use my topic as a baseline or anything, I just kinda thought two would be a little overkill for now. Now I'm looking forward to your topic in a few days!
Slashwing said,  - 2008-06-16 10:44:47
dear God, there are just too many cool TFs! I can`t decide! =P
warlord5 said,  - 2008-06-16 11:38:41
i would like to see ultra magnus as a tractor/trailer
Perceptor said,  - 2008-06-16 12:55:23
Wow, the Terrorsaur idea from RooZilla is BRILLIANT! He has already had his origin story told in Beast Wars!

Shockwave: I'd almost be more surprised if he wasn't in TF2. With all the Starscream on Cybertron story, I'm anticipating, I just think Shockwave will be there.

Unicron? Y'know, of course I'm a very big fan of the character, but where I don't mind the maker of the Transformers films in Hollywood taking artistic liberties with TF characters, which are in the interest of movie and story telling... But Unicron is too, I dunno, for lack of a better word, "sacred." I mean, what if Bay decided to make a City that transformed into Unicron? Would that be cool? What if they made Unicron turn into a Battleship and be a Decepticon...? What if they butchered the persona? Personally, I'd rather they just stay away from Unicron, unless they intend to make him VERY much a movie version of his cartoon/G1 story self.

The personas are all great. I most want Perceptor, followed by Grimlock and the Dinobots. But what I am most hopeful for is a true movie combiner: 4-5 vehicles that each have their own personality/persona AND unite into 1 gigantic fighting force! Bruticus would be my top choice (Swindle, Onslaught...) or the Constructicons would rock too!
baricade 124 said,  - 2008-06-16 14:17:01
i would of loved to see devastator but he was used in the first film instead of brawl...
metroplex would be cool and he could transform into a giant city like japan lol
megatron said,  - 2008-06-16 14:28:55
i would like to see unicron and primus .and in the last movie maybe duke it out in space .
Perceptor said,  - 2008-06-16 14:31:40
I change my mind about who I want to be in TF2! After further consideration, I've decided is that I want the title, "Revenge of the Fallen" to refer to Jazz coming back and ripping Megatron in half! HA!
Jetstorm said,  - 2008-06-16 15:03:15
Cheetor from BM. As a Cheetah.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-06-16 15:38:36
Here's another idea. I already know that Soundwave is going to be in TF2, but here's my idea for him that I came up with awhile back before he was confirmed:

In space, Earth floats calmly, unaware of the terror that approaches it. A gigantic asteroid is headed right for it. In time, NASA becomes aware of this threat, and strikes up a plan to stop it. Sounds like Armageddon, doesn't it? But, the Autobots also here about this, and Ironhide is trusted by Prime, to join NASA on this mission to destroy the asteroid (hey, he is their Weapon Specialist). As the space shuttle lands on the asteroid, Ironhide and the astronauts set charges and detonators to blow up the rock, but this rock is no ordinary rock.

It is actually a ship in disguise. When the astronauts reboard their shuttle, a hatch on the rock's surface opens and out from the shadows steps a dark blue giant of Ironhide's size. Ironhide does battle with the visitor while the astronauts escape, but the bombs go off and destroy the asteroid, shuttle, crew, and send Ironhide and the visitor shooting off into Earth's atmosphere.

Ironhide manages to transform to vehicle mode before impact and is knocked unconscious. He lands in a lake just outside the city of TOKYO, JAPAN! He is then recovered by a teenage boy, who believes Ironhide to be just a truck that was crashed into the lake and abandoned, named Kenji (named after the kid from the G1 manga).

The visitor, however, also landed in a body of water, off the coast of some military base. he was recovered by Naval ships and brought back to the base for study and repair. However, once at the base, he regains consciousness, scans a stealth fighter (making him look similar to his TF:Cybertron counterpart). He wreaks havoc on the base, like what Blackout did in the first film, and reports to Starscream, via comm link, that "This is Soundwave. I reached Earth. The preparations for a full scale assault shall begin..."
TriPredRavage said,  - 2008-06-16 16:00:30
C'mon, Perceptor. I'm disappointed in you. I mean, think about how cool Perceptor would be as one of those Giant NASA telescopes rather than a meak little microscope. Think of the possibilities!
Tyscream said,  - 2008-06-16 19:33:43
You guys heard about TFs having gun modes in TF 2? As it being said "guns", as in more than one, this sticks out many possibilities... If they make Megatron a gun it will look strange seeing some thing that HUGE turn into a puny human weapon in live action.
Sabrblade said,  - 2008-06-16 19:59:16
We don't know if they are "guns", Ty. We do know they said "weapons", not "guns" exactly. They could be any weapon. We don't know precisely WHAT wepons at the moment.
lord megatron said,  - 2008-06-16 20:03:16
Response to Sabr's previous comment: Or Soundwave could be Trents' tricked out BLUE truck! Trent could join forces with Soundwave to get revenge on Sam for stealing his girl. Kind of like a Spider-man 3 Eddie Brock type character.
Bellprime said,  - 2008-06-17 00:15:01
I would like to see a Caseih 8020 combine form the head & body of Agritron. Two 30 foot Caseih disc harrows would form his shoulders. Two Magnum 335's would form his arms & hands. Two Caseih STX 535 Quadtracs would become his legs & feet. I would call the combine Combinor. One Magnum would be Caseor. The other Magnor. One Quadtrac would be Steigor. The other Quadtor. We've had the Aerialbots, The Constructicons. Why not the Farmbots ?
Scorpomike said,  - 2008-06-17 04:21:30
I'd say an earth mode Megatron, as a triple changer, jet mode and helicoptor mode. How about Cyclonus similar to the G1 character. The Armada Cyclonus was a wuss. I always thought G1 Cyclonus and G1 Megatron would have been a great combination to lead the Decepticons. Yes I know Megatron was Galvatron. But I'm talking Megatron before his brain circuits were scrambled.

Optimus Prime needs a trailor in the sequel, he better not be a fire truck. Save the fire truck mode for inferno. Hey, good idea, movie Inferno.
Starscream said,  - 2008-06-17 09:42:04
I LOVE Roo Ferringo's idea for Terrorsaur. That was going to be my first vote. Terrorsaur or TF Animated Blitzwing,mk bauch,Dogzilla and I all have the same idea. Others I would sugest would be G1 Clifjumper(Not the Bumblebee repaint like the toy though)with the G1 voice and he would probably have a similar veichle mode to Ironhide,exept it would be shaped and styled a little different,and would be a different color. I thought about Nightscream,with an all organic mode instead of BM cyberorganic mode. A group of palentologists would be traveling through a jungle off the coast of the Congo,when suddenly a woman at the head of the party would trip over a large skelelton. The group would examine it,and figure out that it was once a bat. As they are celabrating their supprising discovery,they hear a noise from the tree tops. They look up,only to see a huge thing with leathery wings headed right at them! The shape gets closer and closer to the screen until you see a huge mouth with big fangs opening,and there is a high-pitched shriek from the creature. Then-blackout!    
Starscream said,  - 2008-06-17 09:43:32
Other sugestions I have would be for Jazz to come back the way that Perceptor would have him come back. Also to have Rattrap as a Harley Davidson motercycle. Not sure if I exactly like that particular brand for Rattrap,but it could suit him I guess. I would like Astrotrain to come back,maybe he scans a top-secret goverment experiment? Movie Blurr would be cool too,his veichle mode should be the fastest,coolest thing you can possibly think of. Or bring back the Quintissons! With creepy faces and twisted body shapes. So many good ideas it's difficult to choose. But here is my final choice:Movie Dinobot,or rather,Dynammo.
He would have an unusual veichle mode. Unlike the Botcon toy,I have always thought of Dynammo as being sleak and fast,hence his beast mode,not slow and plodding as the toy depicts him. I think I will give him a Cybertronian mode because I can't think of an Earth veichle that would work for my idea. He would be a sort of hovercraft,sleak and silver,a one peson ride with motercycle-type handlebars,and advanced controls. He would have three small jet thrusters at the back,and two long prongs (For lack of a better word) extending from the front. Though he is dull to describe,I promise that the idea I have in my data-processing tracks is awsome,and that he would have lots of attitude just like his BW self.
Skyfire said,  - 2008-06-18 16:47:49
It would rock if Hotshot made an appearence , as an Aston Martin Vanquish(modified of course), but it would be too cool if I made an appearance, maybe looking like a giant version of Megatron, same altmode, but redecoed into an, I dunno, a sort of Energon Jetfire color scheme.Grimlock would look awesome too, all IDWed up, and with a golden, brown, black and silver coler scheme. He would transform into the g1 altmode Grimlock and have a killer flamesaber and a plasma gun. His destructive-but heroic additude could save Sam's butt, and his "Me Grimlock" way of talking would sound awesome in live-action.
Sorry if I stole anyone's name!
Byrerprime said,  - 2008-06-18 20:51:21
I love the Terrorsaur idea, but as a G1 story and not the movie. Grimlock is my choice and a distinct possibility since the Museum of Natural Sciences in Philly has a huge T-Rex skeleton display. Speaking of which, my client yesterday, a PECO employee, complained that they were shooting TF2 in his office. PECO is the electric company in Philly. I should have pressed for more info but I was busy working.
Starscream said,  - 2008-06-19 08:39:21
In that case Byreprime,I sugest you ask him for more details at the first chance you get! By the way,what do you think of my Nightscream story?
ilovetransformers said,  - 2008-06-19 22:46:47
i just thought of something!!!!!! perceptor as a helocopter
Dogzilla said,  - 2008-06-21 02:51:24
Mirage would be cool, but I think his alt mode should be more along the lines of Alternators Mirage, something that stands out less than a formula 1 race car. Or Sunstreaker or Sideswipe. I really think the Autobots need a darker sort of hero. If you think of Optimus as a kind Captain America or Superman type hero then the Autobots need a Batman or Wolverine type also. As for the Decepticons, they need someone who is a mirror of that type. If the Autobots are going to have a dark hero that's so bad he could almost be a Decepticon, then the Decepticons need a conflicted villain. Someone like Thundercracker. Maybe he didn't agree with the Autobot way. Maybe they shouldn't monopolize the Allspark's power and he got taken in by Megatron's rhetoric. But after all the killing and then the war spreading to other worlds and ultimately Earth, he's not convinced the Decepticon way is necessarily right either. But he's in waaay to deep now. Is redemption unattainable? And for his alt mode, I'd like to see him as an F-18, he could scan one of the Blue Angels planes, then he could keep his blue G1 color and still maintain the twin jet engine, twin vertical stabilizer shape.
I would love to see G1 Hardhead as an M1117 Guardian, Chromedome as a Lamborghini Diablo GT, Highbrow as a Bell 206, and Brainstorm as an F-16. They would have their original color schemes. I love Headmasters!!
BrawlerfromUT said,  - 2008-06-23 11:34:42
Dogzilla, your sunstreaker idea is cool, but would anyone have a big enough head to contain his ego?
Rhinoxfan said,  - 2008-06-24 20:21:11
i would have to say quickstrike from beast wars and have him be a dodge viper
chopper said,  - 2008-09-06 21:52:21
I would like to see a transformer be a RAH-66 comanche helicopter and a AH-64 Apache helicopter.
chopper said,  - 2008-09-06 21:57:40
Instead of a basic AH-64 helicopter I would like to see a transformer become an AH-64D Longbow helicopter
