    Some G1, Alternators, the movies to an extent...thanks to this occasional trend, I say that in the last week I've spotted and/or been passed by:
    - Alt. Wheeljack
    - DOTM WheeljaQ
    - 07 Cliffjumper
    - a battered G1 Bluestreak
    - very nearly one of the black Movie Prime repaints
    - Alt. Shockwave, black rims and all

    Random sightings, go?

    I saw a grey Alternators Windcharger recently.

    The car is pretty tiny. He wouldn't be that much bigger in robot mode than a tall human if there was no mass size shifting.

    Uhm.

    Alternators are in scale.

    Windcharger stands just as tall in robot mode as many other Alternators without any sort of mass shifting.

    Must be one of these humans the Autobot Pretenders were trying to pass as.

    My friend and I play a game where the first one to spot 5 real life TFs wins.

    I mean in robot mode without any mass shifting, he wouldn't be that tall because the car is already tiny.

    But then probably so would a lot of other "real life" Alternators in robot mode.

    ^ If they transformed the same way the Alt toys do, they'd still manage to be pretty tall - at least 2.5 times the height of a average height human. But yeah, not stunningly huge the way TF car characters are usually portrayed in the fiction.

    Saw a DOTM Soundwave while on holiday. Noice.
    Though some of the Alternators are pretty common cars around here, less so with the Mustangs however.

    A couple years ago, I was driving back from a concert in Columbus late at night. An old red van passed me on the highway, and it had a giant Autobot decal on the back window. I screamed like a little girl.

    This would've been even more awesome if I owned my green Jeep Wrangler at the time.
