Ughhh....eyes red....tired....

Anyway, who, in YOUR slaggin' opinion, has the BEST Alt/BT design,overall??


I like the Subarus (Smokie and 'Streak) because their robot modes have NO major flaws, IMO.....pretty well designed, all in all, IMO :).....


Sideswipe's not too bad, IMO.....the Viper is super-sleek...and the robot mode really ain't that bad either, IMO....


Hound, I used to have issues with his legs/feet, but I'm past that now and I think he's pretty cool, overall....he also has the easiest transform of all the Alts/BTs, I beleive....


Tracks is NICE!!! @firedevil@ He stayed with the Corvette car mode and it works....his 'bot mode is solid, but I think his legs are a little scrawny...


Jazz/Meister is cool!! I have no probs with his car or 'bot mode, really!!! @cool@ His paint kinda flakes though!!!


@hmmm@ Actually, ALL of 'em have paint that flakes a little here and there!!! @cussing@


Windcharger doesn't look too much like G1 Windcharger but he's cool anyway....transformin' him isn't too complicated....


Grimlock/Wheeljack has those slaggin' arm-transform complications, but besides that, nyahh, he's okay....don't like those stripes on WJ in 'bot mode <_<.....


Must have Prowl (or Red Alert, hopefully) before I can REALLY judge that mold!!! :)


I'm not gonna get into the Decepticons!! They suck (IMO)!!! @grumpy@


Well, guys, I wanna see how YOU disect these lovely, complicated, realistic TFs....or rather the way they are designed....


What do you like and don't like about each one?? Whatever....


Knock yaselves out!!!

Best Bot modes = 1.Tracks, 2.Swindle, and 3.Hound


Best Alt modes = 1.Shockwave, 2.Deadend, and 3.Wheeljack


Best head sculpt = Swindle/Grimlock (tie)


Most G1 accurate head sculpt = Hound/Jazz/Tracks/Shockwave (4way tie)

Bluestreak's my favorite overall, but I think the 'perfect' one is either Hound or Jazz. (Minus his little poppy arm)

Most perfect would have to be Bluestreak(they call it Silverstreak...)


I actually prefer Ravage and Grimlock, but those figures have some flaws. I really don't think they've equalled the Suburu mold yet, and Bluestreak is the better of the two. I think Grimlock and Tracks/Ravage are better looking robots. Bluestreak/Smokescreen are #2 in poseability behind Jazz/Shockwave. I like Dead End, Grimlock and Hound as cars. Bluestreak and Smokescreen have the overall package though. The most G1 accurate transformation among the Alternators line is an added bonus.




Bluestreak(SilverF%^$ingstreak)/Smokescreen--the standard. Very poseable, good looking car and robot modes, and very few flaws. Joints allow for fine manipulation, and combined with a very articulated head, looks great in poses.


Sideswipe/Dead End--Bow legged, biggest kibble problems in Alts, stupid feet


Hound/Swindle--Don't care for the arms, the shoulders in particular, or the wussie little pistol


Jazz(Meister, meh...)/Shockwave(...blast)--lots of little annoyances, aka: weird proportions, floppy gun, ratchet joints. People really seem to like these for some reason.


Tracks--Line down the hood of the car bothers me. Not really poseable at all, but very pretty to look at.


Ravage--Black color makes the line down the hood nearly invisible, so thats a plus. On the minus side compared to Tracks, in car mode you can see right through it next to the doors. Otherwise, like Tracks.


Grimlock--Transformation a pain until you learn it. Pieces seem to pop off more than any other Alternator. Medium poseability. Still my favorite though.


Windcharger--WHERE'S THE FREAKING GUN????(Its in Japan, made by Takara co.) Long spindly legs that don't bend.

Wheeljack is going to be the death of me though, because I FRICKIN CAN'T FIND HIM!!! :wacko:

I've barely missed him 3 times now. Go to a store one day and nothing there. Go the next day and see Windcharger, Ravage, and Shockwave.... I try no to cuss, but I after the third store in a row I couldn't help myself..... :angry:
