    Can anyone tell me what Elita-1's alternate form was? I can't seem to find much on her anywhere. Did she have the ability to fly? Pictures you guys could supply would make me a happy man. Thanks...

    I believe she was a Cybertronian car (similar to Arcee). It shows her transform during the Season 2 episode "The Search for Alpha Trion". I don't think she could fly (at least, it never showed her do so or mentioned anything about that).

    There's a screen cap from 'The Search For Alpha Trion' on the Transformers Wiki, which shows her car mode (mostly obscured by Prime) here.

    Thanks guys. I am starting a Transformers themed mafia game and needed to know more about her before I decide whether or not to include her. If you guys are interested, let me know and I'll give you more info.

    A Transformers-themed mafia game? What in the world is a mafia game?

    It's a forum based game where the townsfolk have been infiltrated by the "mafia" and they need to figure out who they are and exterminate them before the mafia picks them all off. Go here and check it out if you'd like. there are 2 quick paragraphs about basic Rules and Basic Roles. I should add that it is a pretty social game of paranoia and mystery. The story typically plays out like a movie that the players can control. Everyone will be assigned a specific character and a specific role/power.

    Err.. yeah.
    What is a mafia game?

    Also, I doubt she could fly.
    Back when she was Ariel her and Orion Pax were all
    "ZOMG Megatron is teh cool. He can fly!"

    Also, here's a link to the last game I ran. It was Star Trek Themed. I'll be running the Transformers one on that forum as well. I just figured that the knowledge base you guys had would give you a distinct advantage.

    Well The Botcon comic showed Elita-1 being a boat like Thunderblast.

    Different version of Elita, though. That's how she is in the Marvel G1 universe, rather than the G1 animation.

    Also, you never saw her transform in the comic, so it's more like her robot mode was based off of Thunderblast. She could always transform into something else, like a jet.

    Perhaps more coincidence than anything, but there is a vague resemblance to Cybertron Override. (mostly the canopy shape with details from the top of the robot head sitting behind it.)

    ouch!! damn that was a harsh (but rather true) article.

    goes into a corner & starts banging her head into a wall

    And of course, to make matter MORE fun (like the femmes weren't laughable already), the Elita-1 from the movie "line" is as bad or worse than cartoon-Arcee!

    She kind of looks like Wheelie in alt mode.

    She was sort of supposed to be a female version of Optimus (thus the smokestacks on the shoulders etc), so I always assumed she turned into a kind of sleek Cybertronian truck of sorts. maybe something vaguely along the lines of Rodimus Prime.

    Looking at the cartoon, she really does seem to transform incredibly similarly to Override, with the addition of a single panel which flips up from being her hood to covering her torso windshield. Even the head with protruding decoration is in the same location.

    Kitbash, anyone?

    Here I was thinking I was the only one who ever noticed that.

    Perhaps that little energy transfer she and Prime had resulted in Wheelie. :ev:
