I've never really gotten a good chance to watch the original cartoon shows, but I've watched both of the new movies and a few of the comics and I've got to say that are pretty amazing.

Personally, I think if I was a Transformer I would either

1). Turn into a satellite so that I could stay in orbit and get free TV and Internet forever... and occasionally fire my KillSat weapons down at people I don't like.

or

2). Travel to Mars and turn into a Universal Factory thing and cover the planet in solar panels and windmills, convert the energy into Energon and then find some way to sell the excess to Earth for lots of money.

/Nitpick

No aircraft carrier on the planet will carry the F-16A/B/C/D/E/F models of the Fighting Falcon. You'll be shooting F/A-18C/D/E/F's out of your arse

/EndNitpick

Me? I'd turn into a... Well, the evil love-child of an F-22A Raptor and Bugatti Veyron... The USAF's most advanced fighter aircraft, and arguably the most advanced fighter on the planet pushing 70,000 pounds of thrust and a top speed of Mach 2.5... and the worlds fastest production vehicle, with a 16 Cylinder Quad-Turbocharged Engine which pushes 254mph!

Whaaaaaat?

Hmmmmmm! What would I transform into?
I'd probably be a gestalt transformer like the Predacons/Constructicons etc....but what would my theme be? Predators...nah been done! Emergency Service vehicles...nah been done! Dinosaurs...nah bee...
WAIT A MINUTE!
YES!
I'd be the like the dinobots but I'd combine! That would be the scariest sound any Decepticon could hear "Dinobot's Merge for the Kill".

I'd transform into a metal two-headed Velociraptor.

Because there is no defence against a metal Velociraptor.

And in my robot form, one of my raptor-heads would be an energy cannon and the other would be a laser-sword.

I would leap from the top of mountains, slice a few of my enemies in half with my immense speed, then blast holes in the rest. And I'd do it while jumping and rolling across the battlefield, using rapid-shift technique to confuse my foes as I decimate them.

And I'd be one of the good guys. :smallamused:

Thankyou.

Alternatively, I could become a giant metal Gorilla who's left arm is an Owl Transformer called Justice and who's right arm is a Tiger Transformer called Vengeance.

Justice morphs into a set of energy cannons and Vengeance morphs into a pair of laser-claws/orbital laser.

The Gorrilla itself morphs into a spaceship.

And the whole thing would be called... Primageddon.

or

Retrax, because I have a thing for rolly-pollies. That's really sums up my obsession with him (and Power-hug).

Or the Warthog. Not, not a dune buggy with a minigun. I mean the GAU-8 Avenger packing airborne instrument of low flying death to all who hug the ground, by wheel, track or leg, I mean the Warthog (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A-10_Thunderbolt_II).

Shadow_Elf

I would turn into a robo-dragon. In my human form, the dragon's head would form my chest plate and its tail my awesome sword. When I sword duel people, the dragon's mouth opens and roasts them too. The velociraptor idea is also cool, but I'm not interested in two heads and the one-headed variety was done already by Dinobot, the ultimate anti-hero of Beast Wars.

My second choice would be a deathstar-moon thing. I would be covered in lasers and rail guns and nuke launchers and stuff, like a giant weapon's platform in space. And then, when aliens would get close to the planet, they would get to say "That's no moon! Its a Transformer!".

Oh! Flash of brilliance! I would be a cougar cannon! In one form, I am a cougar and a cannon, but the two combine to form my humanoid form. In "beast/vehicle" mode, I would shoot the cougar half of me out of the cannon half.

Me? An old creaky wooden galleon. Only I wouldn't be wodden. I'd be a creaky metal made to look like wood and I'd act just like wood in boat mode. In robot mode my main sail would be a great spear/harpoon, and the cannons would be on my shoulders and chest.

And they'd call me Keelhaul. And I've put thought into this.

Officially, random corpse bits, according to the titanium bios.

Of course, if you frame by frame obsessively, read the Wreckers botcon comic, or otherwise waste your time, I think the corpses in question are: Bombshell for Cyclonus, and Thundercracker for Scourge.
