Yeah I was up for PE Arcee (and still, it looks pretty great) but more than anything it's just that she's so darn bright. the cartoon Arcee definitely wasn't nearly as neon. more of a pastel pink, or at least just a bubblegum shade. hey, i still have dreams that hasbro will do a car one again in a less animated style and the right colours.

I find PE Arcee is really tempting, actually. But I already have Delicate Warrior (and Impossible Toy's take AND animates, AND Energon) so I keep finding better things to spend $$$ on.

I got Code a week ago. It's kinda weird, I love his engineering, but the colos all look really bland and the head isn't quite right (which is as usual for FP, really). Still, overall I have no regrets with the guy.

I wouldnt touch that pink version of PE Arcee but the blue version makes a great Chromia. Transformation is way too complex though. Even with youtube videos, I couldnt get it and gave up. Been in robot mode ever since.

Just got mine. He's pretty freaking sweet. The transformation is simple but brilliant. Nothing required force. Paint, as always, is flawless. He was money gladly spent. I have my fingers crossed they release a more accurate head later on. If not, I can live with it.

I'd not be surprrised at an eventual rerelease having a different coloured head, with luck they'd put one out cheap for us with the first version, but as it is, it's still real nice.

it's a shame this head isn't the same size as a robot as the earlier FP ones, but, it means we get a proportionate head, so I'm ok with it.

I don't get it. Take preorders for at least a month and then base the run off of that. Why can't enough people preorder this guy? :BANG_HEAD:

going by the prices of their recent pre-orders, it's probably for the best.

Just checked BBTS (8:53pm Eastern). X-01 is back in preorder status. I suggest putting it in you POL while you can, considering how fast it has sold out this past week. Good luck!!!

Have you tried TFSource? I had to send mine back to BBTS because of an odd breakage issue. They had none to replace it with so I took the credit. TFSource had some in stock a few weeks ago so I bought (pre-ordered) one from them. Seems they're out now but I'd keep watching both stores in case preorders get cancelled.
