    I Tried Transforming him first time since i got him back in 2005. He took a half hour and still wasn't aligned,and when bakc to Transforming him his hood was hard to put back on and The gun still doesn't fit,I read the Instruction and it doesn't help,I might try again today.

    Peace Out!

    Wow, I've always considered that an awesome mold.

    You must be doing something wrong to be having that many issues with it.

    I TFed him without the instructions for my first time holding him a few weeks ago.

    He's not THAT bad. Plus, he's one of the best Alts available.

    I dunno how well this thread's gonna turn out, most people think the Mazda is one of the best Alternator molds

    I think the Dodge Ram is by far the worst Alt mold. G1 toys had better bot modes with more articulation than that POS.

    The title of worst alternator belongs to Optimus Prime for me at least. That mold is complete crap.

    Meister is FAR easier than the Subarus to transform, because his joints are actually ratcheted; with the Subarus it's a case of "looks about right". I TF'd mine without any instructions at all (I god a testshot, so it didn't even have any).

    Meister should fit together quite nicely; the Subarus, Mustangs and the Dodge Rams are far more problematic to transform, although I'd never say any of them were crap. The RX-8 is easily one of the better moulds.

    Agreed, I think the Meister mold is a more refined version of the Subaru one, the transformation for Meister is quite smooth and simple imo. He's actually one of my favourite Alts aside from Mirage and Tracks.

    Meister is by far my favourite of the four alts I own. Nice transformation, great poseability etc. The only problem I have with him is that the left arm pops of to easily.

    That and the fact that the plastic seems to yellow very easily :(

    Better bot modes? Come on, the G1 guys had more than enough terrible bot modes. Even Armada had better bot modes than a vast majority of G1 did.
    Whats wrong with the Dodge ram mold? Its big, powerful looking, fits Prime. Looks much better than a cardboard-box truck at any rate.

    G1 can have more articulation than Alts? I think I must be seeing the wrong G1.
    My Nemesis Prime has more than enough articulation, he has knees, that's more than most G1 toys can say. He has neck movement, another thing alot of G1 lacked.


    I'm sorry, but I couldnt leave that open. While everyone is entitled to an opinion and so on, I'm just sharing mine on the same subject.
    But hearing someone say G1 figures beat an Alt in both look and articulation? Now I'm not a G1 hater, it finished long before my time, but I've watched it all (barring headmasters/victory/zone.etc), So this isnt just being bias against G1.

    I'm not a huge fan of Alts, I only have two (Ricochet and Nemesis Prime), and both were bought on impulse. Besides, I have more G1 figures by far than Alts.
    At a quick count of my shelves, the odds are:-
    Alts - 2
    G1s - 19 (21 if you count G2 Megs and G1 Soundwave statue)

    So yeah, I'm not bias either way, but just thought I'd share an alternate view on the matter.

    Nah.... I think it was more of your frustration that leads you to your conclusion. Jazz/Meister aint that bad... I had a hard time transforming it back to car mode too especially the leg part but patience paid...think of it like scoring a 3rd base...its hard but hey its definitely worth the wait! Peace!

    I find that almost all the Alts gave me trouble the first time through the transformation.... but once you've done it once or twice, it becomes a lot easier. Personally I find Meister to be one of the easiest to transform, but I think it's just because I have so many versions of that mold, and have done customs of it, that I've transformed it a lot by now.

    To me, honestly, the worst Alternator is poor Rumble. Not because of the transformation, of course (which is about on par with an Armada toy) but because the little guy just can't stay standing up to save his life. The feet always give out and send him toppling backwards. (I know, this could probably be fixed with nail polish... I've just been too lazy to do so). :p

    So, just because you can't transform him properly, he's automaticaly the worst Alternator? Where does that logic come from?

    He's actually one of my favorites, next to Nemmy Prime, Skidz, Mirage and Alt Rodimus.

    I like the Mazda Mold, although I perfer the Red BT Verion to Regular white Meister, and Shockwave blows them both out of the water, by being my favorite alt.

    The Ram mold I don't mind, I like it more than that ugly as sin Psion that is skids.

    But yeah the RX-8 mold rocks.

    I have the Shockwave and didn't have any issues with him at all. I like it a lot more than most of the others, I wager I'd feel the same for Meister too if I could track one down at a good price!

    The arm problem isnt in my Shockwave but its so annoying on Meister. But I really cant say its a terrible Alt mold. I'd say Skids is worse. I had no problems transforming Shockwave OR Meister.

    I had Jazz for about a day before I returned it... He couldn't keep his left arm on.
