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.
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, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

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.
