    I just want to see what others think of the BT/BTA/Alts. I really have nothing to say about the vehicle modes because they are licensed car.. now the bot mode.
    In my opinion...Best is Smokey/steak/shockblast and jazz(meister)...
    Worst is... Rumble(those arms, arg...so big) 2nd runner up is/are sideswipe/sunstreaker/deadend.

    My least favorite is the S2000.

    My favorite is probably Optimus (and yeah, I realize what a huge minority that is). I like Tracks and the Mustangs too.

    And even though we arent talking vehicle mode, I'm still gonna say Mirage has the best for that.

    I remember there used to be an Alt thread exactly like this, but it's really old I doubt anyone could find it so...

    Best: Skids hands down.

    Worst: Rumble.

    My favorite mold is the RX-8 mold. The only thing that separates this mold and the Ford GT40 is the hatchback in robot mode.

    Keep in mind that my perspective here if very biased as every mold from this line I've thoroughly enjoyed :)

    Alt Mirage & BT Swindle are my joint faves, highly poseable and they just look really good. Alt Rumble is a close third tho tho; he seems to realyl stand out from a lot of the other BT/Alts - and looks badass if you hunker him down & pose him so he looks like he's actually using those piledrivers :D  Just standing up, he looks rubbish...

    Least favourite BT is Overdrive, and Tracks; but that's more for the limited articulation than anything. I don't think either is terrible, I just like others much more.

    this is funny, i just relocated all my alts yesterday, and i have to say, after you switch the legs around, it's hard to beat Prowl for me, but the Wrangler and Scion molds are definite second favorites

    Favourite: Ford GT (with the RX-8 and Jaguar XK as close runners-up)

    Least favourite: S2000, I've never taken to this mould, probably because of the choice of characters.

    My favorite would be a tie between RX-8 and Wrangler.
    My least favorite is the Viper.

    I don't have any past Shockwave/Mirage so I can't comment on those.

    Best mould is a tie between the Ford GT, RX-8 and Toyota Bb.
    Worst mould is probably the Dodge Viper, for a variety of reasons. Dead End still has a fantastic car mode, though.

    My favourite is the Ford Mustang as Grimlock.

    BEST: Well...I like all of them, but if I had to choose, it'd be Meister or Sunstreaker.
    WORST: Prowl. He is just a PAIN to transform without breaking something.

    I'm surprised Rumble is a bad mold. Doesn't look bad to me. :p

    Dunno why, but I seem to have opposite opinions to most in this thread so far. My least favourite is the Ford GT / Mirage mold, because of the kibble knees. Mustang / Grimlock is damn hard to transform and the doors keep falling off while I do it.

    I will always have a soft spot for the Smokescreen mold, 'coz it was the first even BT and I can still remember being absolutely blown away at the amazing engineering of the thing. Another favourite is Rumble 'coz of the strong design homages to the G1 character, and Ravage (Jaguar XK) just because for once it wasn't a "robot" bot mode.

    Hmm, I do like my Dead-End, really cool looking in both modes but the shoulders are so stiff and difficult to transform (I've only done it once). They feel like they'll snap if I put any more pressure on to rotate them.

    Anybody else find this problem and do you have a solution?

    Favorite is the Subaru esp after you turn Alert into Prowl. Second is the Mustang Grimlock/Wheeljack, and third is the Ford GT Mirage/Rodimus

    Least favorite first is the Jag Ravage, Second is Ram Optimus, and third is Scion Skids...though its more because of character choices than mold.

    I'd say the best all around is probably the Impreza with the Rx-8 coming in second. I prefer Silverstreak and Shockwave respectively. Worst is most definitely the Ram mold.
