    I'm hoping for a sports car convertible and not a bike.

    Astrotrain got updated into a bullet. Kup into a pickup. Scourge and Hot Rod are out-there but still earth-bound. And thunderwing is vague enough.

    Grimlock gets a pass so the only one that I can think of that doesn't fit the bill is Cyclonus.

    What do you think is most likely if Hasbro made an Arcee?

    I'd like to see her as a classic Corvette.

    An alt mode similar to her G1 design. I think the Animated vehicle form minus the white wings seems about right. I mean, Cyclonus can't be the only bot with a futuristic design, lol.

    Some kind of convertible. If she has to have a 'Cybertronian' design, I'd like to see a more streamlined version of her G1 mode... maybe a hybrid design between TFA and the old proposed Chromedome repaint...

    Despite Hot Rod, Blurr, and Kup no longer being Cybertronian?

    She should be a futuristic hover car that looks more detailed then in G1.

    A more classics-ised version of TFA Arcee would be perfect.

    I'd prefer a modern sports car (just as Kup was upgraded... or downgraded, depending on how you look at it... into a modern retro-styled truck). The "small, sporty roadster" type of car is actually sort of an un-used niche in the Classics line. Most car-bots in the line to be either tuner-style compacts (Bumblebee), mid-size sports cars (the Nissan brothers, Jazz, Drift), or supercars (the faux-Lambos, Wheeljack and Tracks, Rodimus).

    It may be a total cliche, but I think a mode based on an S-2000 (echoing her reviled Alternators figure, but with more success), Miata, or Boxter would work well for Arcee.

    I'm not really a fan of the "futuristic" look, at least not for Classics. Give me a car I could see on modern roads any day. At least until they get to Chromedome.... then I want him to be some crazy Mad-Max-meets-Blade-Runner tech-laden dystopian future car. :)

    I'd like a car, please. Not a big fan of motorcycle TFs unless they're really awesome.

    Arcee could be a pink Miata.

    Car.

    Was a car in the movie, G1 toy was a car - needs to be a car in classics. Otherwise what the heck is "classic" about Classics?

    I'd agree that it would be cool for her to be a car. Maybe something similar to her alt mode in the original cartoon and 86 animated film. Or a modern update car would be cool too. I'd just love to get an official G1 transformable Arcee toy at long last.

    I don't think they were ever Cybertronian, but rather "futuristic concepts." Hot Rod at least I'm sure of it, I just assumed that Kup and Blurr were the same.

    In retrospect, Blurr was probably Cybertronian since he was a hovercar, but I still think Kup was just more of a futuristic pick-up.

    Don't make her "Animated Arcee with guns and a different face," please. My interest would be as a companion piece to Kup, Hot Rod, and Blurr. With that proviso, I don't care overly much what sort of car she is.
