    I think we should list off all the mottoes from the new Alt bubble-style boxes. It would also be fun to speculate on what the new mottoes for other characters would be, either serious or funny. Since pics of Shockblast in the new packaging have surfaced, I'm including him in the Coming Soon section too.

    For the most part, the characters are from G1 and would make sense as some kind of car/truck/van, but feel free to speculate further. I also took inspiration or outright copy-pasted from their G1 mottoes as well. All mottoes listed are from G1 (according to TFU.info) unless otherwise noted. Have fun! :D 

    Released (BT included):
    Smokescreen: "You won't see me, but you might feel me pass you by." (modified from G1)
    Sideswipe/Lambor: "I don't break the rules, I bend them... a lot."
    Silverstreak/Bluestreak: "I never met a Decepticon I didn't dislike."
    Hound: "Observe everything, remember even more."
    Dead End: "We are all just food for rust."
    Jazz/Meister: "Do it with style or don't bother doing it."
    Swindle: "Make money, not war." (modified from G1)
    Windcharger/Overdrive: "Quick action equals quick victory."
    Grimlock: "Me Grimlock say, 'Among winners, there no room for weaklings.'" (modified from G1)
    Ravage/Battle Ravage: "Today's Autobots are tomorrow's scrap metal."
    Wheeljack: "Never do what your enemy expects."
    Drag Strip/Decepticharge: "The first one to cross the finish line LIVES."
    Swerve: "Get outta the way! I'm driving here." (my own)
    Red Alert/Alert: "Caution can never be overused."
    Blaster/Broadblast: "When the music's rockin, I'm rollin. "

    Tracks: "Hey! Hands off buddy. This paint job is new." (official)
    Prowl: "Clear thinking is the key to victory." (official)
    Skids: "Speed is immaterial when you've got intelligence. And killer rims." (official)
    Sunstreaker: "You think I look good now? Wait 'til you see my driving." (official)

    Coming Soon:
    Ricochet: ""If I don't catch you, my missiles will." (official)
    Rollbar: "Front wheel drive is for sissies." (official)
    Optimus Prime: "An open road is the right of all sentient beings." (modified from G1)
    Shockwave/Shockblast: "Clarity of thought before rashness of action."
    Mirage: "Who and what I am I hide from the enemy."

    Proposed:
    Trailbreaker: "An Autobot is as good as the fuel in his tank."
    Ironhide: "High tech circuitry is no replacement for guts."
    Ratchet: "You break it, I'll remake it."
    Bumblebee: "The least likely can be the most dangerous. As long as he has a weapon..." (modified from G1)
    Cliffjumper: "Strike first, strike fast, strike hard. Zoinks!" (modified from G1, with apologies to Shaggy from Scooby Doo)
    Gears: "Nobody wins a war - somebody loses."
    Brawn: "Might over microchips."
    Huffer: "Do we really have to fight? Can't we all just get along?" (my own)

    Hoist: "You have to be rolling before you can be fighting."
    Inferno: "Where there's smoke, there's me."
    Grapple: "Beauty is in everything except war."
    Beachcomber: "Know the conflict within before facing the conflict without."
    First Aid: "An ounce of maintenance is worth a pound of repairs." (modified from G1)
    Streetwise: "You have to know where you are before you know what to do."
    Nightbeat: "Truth is revealed in the smallest detail."
    Punch/Counterpunch: "In my business, there are no friends, only suspects."

    Kup: "The past is the greatest teacher."
    Hot Rod: "My actions speak louder than words."
    Blurr: "ThefasteritisthebetterIlikeit." (modified from G1)
    Lightspeed: "Space travel is the only flight to freedom."

    Soundwave: "Cries and screams are music to my ears."
    Rumble: "Destroy what's below and what's above will follow."
    Motormaster: "These wheels are made for crushing."
    Breakdown: "Keep your optical sensors to yourself."
    Wildrider: "Either you're out of my way or you're out of luck."
    Runabout: "A pretty car makes an even prettier wreck."
    Runamuck: "The road is my playpen, cars are my toys."

    Rollbar has a motto already. ;) 

    "Front wheel drive is for sissies."

    I think Primeis and should be "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings"

    Didn't know about Rollbar's new Alt motto. I also changed up Prime's to make it a little more hip, ala the new Alt mottoes.

    Edit: I fixed Rollbar's motto above.

    lol, that's cool

    BTW, you're dead-on for Tracks' motto. So it's right

    I think if they were gonna give the alts mottoes, it should have been done from the start. Adding them now just seems a bit cheesy to me.

    lol Jetbrawn

    Thought up a quickie alternate for Swindle along the same vein:

    "I'm still here.... Anyone?.... I'm not that bad a toy..... Hello......"

    You made me think of an interesting point, Runabout and Runamuck really need to be made into alts.

    Say, does anyone have a photo of the bubble-package Tracks motto handy? I got Tracks the first time around, so that's the only package motto I won't have a copy of.

    It's a direct quote from the G1 tech spec according to TFU.info

    I'm gonna see if I can come up with something better when I have some more time to think of mottoes.

    Ah hell, off the top of my head:

    "You'll never see me coming."

    That's Tracks motto?

    I thought it should be (from MIB) "I make this look good."

    Ricochet's motto should be edited since it has an "official" one...

    "If I don't catch you, my missiles will."

    Thanks Dragstrip85. I edited Ricochet's motto, but it doesn't make any sense because I see no missiles on Ricochet. Too bad they didn't include launchers with him to make him a little different from the other Subarus.

    Also did some touching up of the initial post. Hope that makes things clearer for everyone.

    Hmm...I was wondering about the missiles in his quote too... I'd figured it would be a surprise by Hasbro to include "overstock" BT Smokescreen GT missiles onto this figure's packaging but after seeing many testshots and official shots of Ricochet which didn't include anything new, that thought was scrapped.
