Howdy fellow Seibertronians and welcome to another round of the Seibertron.com Transformers Photo Challenge. Every challenge has a theme and suggested guidelines to follow. To participate, just post your pictures in the discussion below. The TFPC is just about having fun and is for all skill levels. Previous challenges can be found here.

It's time to put down your instructions and get creative, the theme for this challenge is fan modes. Fan modes are basically transformations created by fans (fanformations?) that can range anywhere from simple modifications of the official transformation to full blown new modes that were never intended. While other fan modes can be crazy mashups that defy faction alliance logic. Below are a few examples to stimulate the grey matter.

Generations Nightbeat has several fan modes in both bot and alt mode.

Reveal the Shield Strafe and Hunt for the Decepticons Sunspot can be combined to give Strafe a powered up almost samurai appearance.

Ooh, fan modes! I love these things.


Blackarachnia pretending to be an RTS building. Kinda looks like a sort of portal thingy.


Soundwave doing his best to resemble the "lamppost mode" from the first episode of the cartoon.


Shockwave attempting to be a castle. Or a power plant. I dunno.


Kup's base mode. Or something.

For some reason I can sorta picture this mode being part of the town in BraveStarr. It has a sci-fi western feel about it. Well, I think so anyways. I like it more than the official base mode.

I like Black Hat's DotM Shockwave base mode too. Looks very villainy HQ.

I did these a couple of years ago. They're "mech modes" for DOTM HA Tailpipe and Whirl. Sorry about the quality.
