I like Delicate Warrior, but somehow I feel like Motorbot (?) is a better Classics representation.

Delicate Warrior is very show accurate, which is an incredibly awesome feat in and of itself, but I think she just doesn't fit in with the rest of the Classics line.
All of which have been updated and modernised and given a more detailed look. Some even homage different, more recent/ iconic representations/ incarnations of the characters.

For instance Perceptor, looks a hell of a lot like IDW Perceptor and turns into something looking like a realistic version of Animated Perceptor.

Delicate Warrior however, well she just looks out of place.

She almost looks like she jumped of the screen, which would have been awesome a few years ago, but now just makes her look weird in the Classics line.

The PErfect effect offering bring in a G1 ish robot-mode, inspired by the idw look, loads of modern detailing and articulation, plus it homages the now more iconic bike alt-mode for her (which I'm still iffy about).

That however, doesn't make DW crappy.

Critiques for G1 toon accuracy?? That kinda new, lol.

The classicsverse has a few. Even if they aren't as close as Arcee, I'd consider Hot Rod, Bumblebee, and Starscream to be fairly toon accurate. But I've said it once and I'll say it again, the classiceverse has so many conflicting styles just within it's own various lines, and you're in a whole new ball game when you toss in 3rd party figures.

But it's all in the beholder, I suppose.

Hey bud, any chance we could get a pic of that movie trio with Motobot instead of Delicate Warrior? I'm really finding it difficult to decide on an Arcee. I know I'm getting a version of Motobot for certain but I can't decide which deco. Pink would obviously fill in for Classics Arcee for me. Blue, I really can't place. She's too much of a departure from Chromia to work for me. :/ Thoughts, suggestions?

I'd like to see a pic of Motobot with some of the S3/TF:TM Classics or 3rd party characters too.

As for Blue Motobot and who she could be...Nightracer? A fairly substantial departure from the original, but she's a sort of midnight blue colour, and she's got a racer-ish alt mode. Vehicle-mode Antagony? Devcon's Gal-pal? Glyph? Override (both the Cybertron and TF2010 repaint of Cyberverse Sideways can be female and the latter is blue)?

Or just make up a name for her, or reuse an existing one, or have her as Cybertron-mode TFPrime Arcee.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Well, I didn't get the pink Motobot, so I can't exactly help there. I went with the blue version because I am sort of dedicated to car-Arcee.

Now, my blue Motobot is being used as my SG Arcee.

I figure in SG she would steal the heroic blue colors of TF Prime Arcee and be a complete coward who runs away from a fight, hence the motorcycle form and sniper rifle.

I must just be unlucky then, because the consistency of the paint on mine is like porridge. I think you can see that in my picture if you look at the alt mode. Plus, the die cast part doesn't align centrally with the panel behind it in alt mode, which you can see in CP's picture. Plus, the high center of gravity and small feet conspire to splay her legs apart. If the part was plastic, all of those isses could be avoided. But, maybe I'm just unlucky ;) But, overall, I forgive all this, and the fact that one thin piece of plastic pretty much holds the entire upper body together, on the basis that she is the best representation of G1 Arcee by miles. But, there are major QC issues for the expenditure.

all I keep reading about this toy is that Arcee can't keep her legs together.

Completely my bad. I assumed you got the pink version as well. I like your thinking on SG Arcee and I'm sort of leaning towards the blue as well. I'm still hoping for a Flamewar deco and I'll probably hold out a bit to see what else we get from the mold. I think DW looks great but she's a bit more slavish to G1 than I like in Classics. I'm likely to get her too. She really does display nicely with those other figures. I'm just waffling.

As for the suggestions. Nightracer and Antagony are both primarily black. Devcon's gal is a much lighter blue. I wouldn't mind a Paradron medic but not in deep blue and not with all those weapons. Tools and healing devices, sure. Glyph should properly be a BB repaint. Override is a stretch in every sense and really has no place in a Classics display IMO. Chromia really is the closest homage other than Prime Arcee. I already have plenty of Prime Arcees. Screw it, I'll get em all. Heh.
