Like the movie Returner
, for instance. It has a jet plane transform into a humanoid robot that looked a lot closer to the original Starscream than the Transformers '07 movie version of Starscream did. You could see where the parts like the cockpit shifted to become different parts of the body, and you could follow the transformation animation more clearly.
Its funny that someone proposed motion capturing the suits. Seems like a strange idea, like I dunno, stop-motion animating actual size people and monster suits in lieu of miniatures.
Still, one could always build the suit and then animate a CGI model of it one would think. I still think it would be better to motion capture the movement though so it has realistic movement.
