    Eilta-One has been a popular, though much less prominent, character since g1. many want to see her pop up more frequently in media like cartoons, toylines and such. i myself would dish out serious cash for a masterpiece figure of her. but before that, she needs an earth mode, which im pretty sure she has never gotten. hell, her original cybertronian alt mode didnt even get to be fully seen onscreen. so what important traits of hers contribute to that? she was rebuilt into a warrior commander like optimus, and they share similar construction. she would likely be a taller bot, not quite as tall as optimus but more around ironhide/ratchet size. this would mean a bigger vehicle than the standard car alt mode. My vote is for a pickup truck. i think one with exhaust pipes so they can end up on her shoulders to match optimus. with a alt mode like that, she would appear both feminine and bulky, not unlike RID strongarm or TF:Universe astraea. I think that would be the best vehicle fit for her. do others agree or have different ideas?

    Delivery Truck. Like a UPS, FedEx, DHL, or USPS delivery truck.

    I kind of think a lightweight truck would fit her well. Kind of like Generation Kup's alt. mode.

    During one of those Botcon comics (I think that's what it was), she was a straight repaint of Thunderblast, giving her a boat mode. That wouldn't be practical for a long-running TF show, unless the boat had anti-gravity tech.

    Since cars, jets, motorcycles, and vans are all too common for Transformers in general and females in particular, I was thinking of giving her a helicopter alt mode, something like a rescue chopper. It gives her an aerial alt mode to contrast Optimus's land-based mode, as well as highlighting her heroic personality.

    If you're going for an Optimus parody for Elita's earth mode then I can see some kind of regular or semi-truck working for her. If you want to be a puritan and give her an alt-mode than better resembles her obscured vehicle form in the cartoon you'd probably have to make her a sports car.

    Personally I'd make her a firetruck while going for the Optimus parody. He's more recognized for his semi-truck form than a fire engine so giving that earth mode to Elita it works out. Plus with the Pyra Magna/Megaempress remold all designers would have to do is fuse this with this and you'd have a feminine but functional Elita One fire engine.

    y'know, i was pretty firm in my choice, but you explaining it like that, a fire truck might not be a bad idea. it is definitely interesting. especially when u look at this concept art for pyra magna, you can totally see it as elita one

    agreed. i'm gonna turn fire convoy into elita because it works on multiple levels: being a repaint of an optimus prime, in scale in vehicle mode with MP10, small robot mode for cartoon scale and an armored mode for a more impressive stature, plus an OP-style base mode. and pink fire trucks are totally a thing!

    She's made like 3 appearances, but the only one where she was actually part of the main plot
