As long as it's as different from G1 as the current movie is I'm happy. :clap

trainformers are different from G1 for sure. hell, i'd be satisfied if we got a trainformer as a toy only, but never appeared in the movie. i just want a trainformer! rail racer is cool, but i was thinking something along the lines of a north american diesel locomotive.

 

yeah i guess you're right about that. if only there was a way. because the robot mode of an EMD hood unit (pardon my train talk) would look so wicked awesome!

I'm sure that's a possibility before the movie franchise has run its course.

Look into doing custom scratchbuilt designs? I'm considering it the cure for most ailments of the, "I wish a Transformer did or was more ."

Good idea. I bet Atmo could easily wrap a model train around Wreckage from the movie line.

Click the "Wreckage" link in my previous post. It's a photo gallery for an upcoming movie toy-line character. He's not in the film, but he's got that movie styling, and his Alt. mode is an armored personal carrier that's got multiple wheels and a boxy frame, like a locomotive.

 

Get one in June, cut off as many personal carrier parts as you can and replace them with model train bits that are roughly the same size to make him a train.

 

Presto.

i dunno.... his proportions are too off. all my model trains are HO gage, which is pretty tiny. i dunno though. thanks for the tip. i'll see if it's doable when i get him

Tangent, on Customs/Scratchbuilding: After doing some research into the model rail hobby, I was thinking G scale would be more appropriate. Although HO is the most popular, it is a bit small, no?

I'm not a big fan of vehicles that are so limited. Why would any Transformer choose an alt mode that depended upon having railway tracks around? It's a bit like (oh, say) having an alt mode that's a gun b/c you're dependent on having someone else around to fire you. If you're fighting one-on-one, your alt mode is essentially useless.

 

It seems to me that they have a pretty good assortment of vehicles in the movie already - cars/trucks of various kinds, a semi truck, a jet, a tank, a helicopter...

 

I think the next level would be combiners... but I'm sure there will be some new alt modes represented in the sequel as well.
