I have to say that I like her.

Yeah she has a backpack from Hell. Yeah she turns into a generic sci-fi something. But gee she has personality.

Like all the lithe little fembots she is very expressive when posing. Even just mashing her onto the shelf she fell into that cute anime girl leaning foward pose. You can really make her into that bubbly girl she is supposed to be.

Car mode is at once solid and disappointing. Surely they could have made it more than a log on wheels? But like I said solid. Same as a limb. No flopping around there. My daughter had Moonracer scooting across the tiles in no time. She is just fun to play with.

So yeah. Moonracer has some glaring flaws but in hand she is fun. And what more can you ask from a toy.

I prefer to keep her bonnet folded down behind her legs, like a skirt, rather than adding to the backpack mass.
But yes, she is a fun toy

Trenchcoat not a skirt 😉

All those hyper serious box pics don't do her justice. She responds well to fun poses. I can't wait to make her irritate the other girls.

Not a great toy in and of itself, a few flaws (that have been pointed out by others), but I like the colours very much, so she will look great on display, and thumbs up for another fembot.

I think she has perhaps the most feminine face Iíve seen on an official figure. Considering she is sorta green and there is a Star Trek crossover comic in the works, I wonder if Kirk will put the moves on her

I like to Transform her half way to make her do Professor X impressions

Overall I quite like this toy, I find it fun and intuitive

The 'pregnancy belly' gimmick looks just as bad as it sounds. Moonracer just 'gave birth' to Megatronus and creeped out my whole family
On the lookout for MISB Headmaster Highbrow, Takara or Hasbro. I'm sure I could make you a sweet deal!

She's got a color scheme that would make a 1950's housewife proud and a vehicle mode like a log but as expected the fembots deliver when the robot mode is done well. Makes up for the flaws.

I have to admit, I like this toy way more than I thought I would.

Her colours work, vehicle mode works well despite being a generic cybertonian car - it FEELS like a solid vehicle and works visually.

The robot mode has a huge backpack, but she's easy enough to stand and really does feel like Moonracer.
