New Galleries: Generations Arcee and Chromia

New Galleries: Generations Arcee and Chromia

Girl Power - We insist, in this first week of the new solar year, in bringing you the usual treatment for toys. Today's offering continues the Generations streak, and brings two new characters to the site. One of these figures has been expected by fans for a good quarter of a century, Generations Arcee. The other character you'll see below is a heavy remold of PRiD Arcee, also known as Windblade's bodyguard, Generations Chromia. While she is a remold of PRiD Arcee, she bears startlingly few similarities, other than the obvious alt-mode of a motorcycle.
