    I'm gonna say it tosses upt o who is the more fav. character.

    PE- Scouting force (reflector)
    is a FANTASTIC toy. you'll hear a lot about how small he is, but forget all that. he is AMAZING. the weapons really give a sense of a a military unit. you feel like these lil guys are gonna be in metroplex's vents to get ya!

    HOWEVER

    they're are 3 versions:
    Original: purple and green, in nod to the cartoon.
    Con Exclusive( black stealth paint scheme, VERY COOL)
    Upcuming G1 toy acurate ( remolded and colored to match the original mail away)

    So if the last is the one you'd want, you may have a short wait till it's release. So, get motto.

    now are you getting her in:
    Pink: arcee
    Blue: Prime Arcee
    Black: blackarachnia colors

    Both are amongst my favorite 3rd party items. Arcee is probably my favorite standalone figure and has some of the best poseability of any figure I've ever owned. Reflector is a lot of fun and is very cleverly designed. I'd give the edge to Arcee just because the three reflector bots are basically identical and are very VERY tiny. Either one is an awesome choice though.

    I just got pink motobot and it is AMAZING. from the different poses, to all the arming options (big gun, smaller pistols, 2 swords) I find she is the best arcee released yet. Scouting force gets a big old "meh" as they are small and have no individual alt modes, just a combined mode that isn't all that great (the bot modes are pretty cool though and they too have lots of weapons). I guess for me it comes down to the fact I don't give a damn about the character of reflector, whereas the motobot fills a very big "arcee" gap

    If I was you, I would get that new PE reflector that they are making that is more G1 accurate. I think it is limited release, but it is sweet!

    Reflector. Motobot is an inferior product.

    Motorbot isn't bad but Reflector is better. And if you're wanting an Arcee, track down iGear's Delicate Warrior. By far the best 3rd party Arcee out there.

    Why choose? Get both, though I only have RC at the moment. I'm strongly considering Scouting Force X, however.

    This is of course also assuming you have no problems with tiny figures or a G1-ish Arcee turning into a motorcycle instead of a car. Or partsforming, as both sets feature it pretty prominently.

    I actually kind of like the parts forming thing i think it can lead to a better figure in a lot of cases with the third party lines

    I personally like Motobot RC better but they are both good toys so you can't go wrong with either.
