    I need help, I am trying to find a good motorcycle transformer for one of my customs. I am leaning away from G1 toys and more towards classic/universe/RTS/HFTD. The figure is going to be replacing groove from the protectobots so I am trying to stay away from figures like movie arcie or ones where there are no actual legs. I guess I would even consider a macross/gundum type figure that could transform. If there is anything that you might think of that could help please post.

    ^What he said.

    Edit: Doh! That was in response to Animated Prowl, not Wreckgar.

    ani prowl is far better than wreck-gar for a regular bike bot. wreck gar is TOO assymetrical to be anything other than junkion. And Prowl is absolutely amazing.

    cybertron Ransack is interesting unless you are looking for more in the deluxe size.

    Prowl is the way to go. New head, new tires and he'll fit right into classics except for being a little rounded.

    I don't care for Animated Prowl. I like Human Alliance Tailpipe.

    Prowl already fits the police motto type. Wreck-gar is a more aggressive bike. Both are fairly well executed.

    I like Move 1 Arcee. Otherwise Animated Prowl rocks.

    Animated Prowl is probably the best bike bot we'll ever get. vehilce mode is flawless and except for the nose of the bike chest you wouldnt really know he turns into a motorcycle.

    but for a Protectobot set youll have a hard time finding a bike bot that fits in with the others
