    I'm looking to make a collection of the tfs that have good looking car alt modes from all the lines (excluding alternators)

    So what tfs do you think have cool looking car alt modes?

    Ebay:
    Any of the Universe (Henkei!) Lamborghinis or Formula 1s. The Prowl mold is also solid, but the alt. is a little, how should I say this... too curvy?

    I can't comment on anything outside of Universe/Classics.

    RotF Sideswipe. Yeah, all we've seen of the actual toy is a close-up of his head, but just going off of the car he turns into, his alt-mode will look awesome almost no matter what.

    Cybertron Hot Shot and Downshift were pretty snazzy, in their own scifi and retro respects. Hell, I still dig any redeco of that Hot Shot mold.

    if your excluding alternators then its by far g1. yeah some of the bot modes were suspect but the alt modes were awesome. seeing them im person you realize how awesome they are and no cheap plastic here. gotta love the metal and rubber. sideswipe,sunstreaker,mirage,wheeljack,prowl,on and on and on. of course if price is an issue then i'd go for universe.

    Universe Ironhide.






    No not really.

    Some of my faves would be G1 Sideswipe, RID Prowl, Movie Concept Bumblebee, Universe Sideswipe/Sunstreaker, Animated Jazz, Animated Lockdown.

    Outside of the Alternators I'd say Barricade from the movie line, that is just a damn good looking vehicle mode. Other than him, Animated Lockdown is probably my favorite car alt mode like, ever.
