Related to something I wrote a couple of weeks ago, can you just picture a group of robots talking about their transformations:
Hound: I’m a Jeep.
Star Saber: I’m a jet.
Spyglass: I’m one-third of a camera.
Scooter: And they made fun of me. I’m a scooter.
Zero: I’m a Zero (the Japanese plane, not the number).
Tank: I’m a tank.
Sunstreaker: We get it! GoBots had lazy names. I’m a Lamborghini! I’m the awesome one! What about you shiny guys?
Nuggit: I’m a rock.
Gold Lightan: I’m a cigarette lighter.
Star Saber: I don’t want you transforming around my kid.
Galvatron (RiD): I’m a two-headed dragon. And a bat. And a batmobile. And a batjet. And a hand. And a griffin, a one-headed dragon, a mammoth, and a batboat.
Hound: What about you, Turbo Cones?
Turbo Cones: I’m an ice cream cone.
Spyglass: I feel better now.
Galvatron: I’m hungry…
This is the top 5, and some of these are just plain weird.
Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4.
#5 – Steering wheel bot
In the 2007 Transformers movie, there’s a point where Sam drops the Allspark and several nearby machines come to life. The only one we get a really good look at is the Mountain Dew machine, who actually looks cooler than some of the main Transformers in the movie, and turned out to be popular enough that he got a name (Dispensor) and a couple of toys, though neither actually transforms into a vending machine. There’s also an Xbox 360 (still in the box, so we really don’t see much) and this one:
No part of the car other than the steering wheel is moving, so it seems that there’s just this mechanical creature that turns to the steering wheel of an otherwise non-living car, which would be pretty bad for both the robot and the driver even if it didn’t look like it was about to attack her.
