Does Blurr from the Drift mold do it for you?

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

I think that if Blurr got his own mold, even if they did insist on giving him an Earth mode, his vehicle mode would be something not quite this different from his G1 mode. (Maybe. Considering the mode Galvatron got stuck with, maybe not.)
Nobody looks like Drift does. Yet Drift still had to be repainted. Head and color is the only thing that would identify whoever was the repaint if it wasn't Blurr.
RiD Hot Shot or W.A.R.S. Sure there'd be no particular resemblance in robot mode, but there isn't with Blurr either, and at least it makes a lot more sense thematically.
Classics Hot Rod says the changes don't have to be drastic. With any luck, Arcee (assuming she doesn't get to keep a Cybertronian mode) will be an example of the same principle.
Not that any Earth car is enough like Blurr's alt-mode to pull the same thing off with him, but that's exactly why he should just keep his Cybertronian mode.

When pics of the shoulder pads turned up started making the rounds, I thought for sure that was how I was going to display him, but it's even more ridiculously long in person. Very gorilla-like.
This alt mode doesn't bother me at all especially since the car colors are done so well. It's just the head, hip armor, and shoulder kibble that don't feel quite G1-ish to me.
