New Galleries: Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Arcee, Windblade and Chromia

Female Autobots - Seibertron.com is proud to bring you some great new galleries featuring the highly anticipated Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG-10 Arcee, LG-11 Chromia, and LG-12 Windblade! What's most likely the focal point of the trio is the incredibly G1 faithful take on the recent Generations Arcee mold, followed by the more accurate and intricately painted IDW fan made sweetheart Windblade, and finally the heavily retooled Chromia. There are some pretty big differences between these Takara Tomy ladies and their Hasbro counterparts, which also sport some fun mini-comics as well. You can see everything here!
