This figure looks so bad ass. I need to figure out a name for the pink one though. Delicate Warrior already holds the Arcee position in my classics shelf.

Someone did a review... although pretty crapily, imo. But hey, still looks sick as ever. This could be one of my favourite TFs ever, so long as I can find a way to keep the wings attached during conversion. Taking them off seems like too much part-forming.

EDIT: Just recieved my pink version. Seems the wings do have to come off, ah well, she's still sexy as ever.

that Optibotimus review was good. think it has pretty much sold me on this figure. shame that Kapow seems to have sold out of the pink one, but I see a few other places I can pick it up. Will also be very interested in the Blackarachnia version.

I'm not so sure that that locking knee pad works the way he says it does. My instructions say that the movement of the leg on the knee hinge is locked when the knee pad is facing downards, and only free to rotate when the knee pad is facing upwards. Mine seems stiff enough that I don't want to test that, but it seems that optibotimus's is alright.

Either way, be careful with 'em, haha. They're very worth it, even with the heavy price tag. The only thing I can say thats bad is that some of the paint aps are somewhat sloppy. By no means are they terrible, or lacking, but don't expect a figure with paint aps like Fansprojects.

Just got word this in my pile of loot yesterday. Although Im predicting a price drop, I still know this will be a great figure. For me, it will be classics Chromia. If somebody does a G1 head, even better. Now we need a Firestar figure.

that comparison pic makes the G1 design look very "quaint". I think that Delicate Warrior would fit fine with a G1 collection, but, articulation aside, it just doesn't look very Classics.

Nice pics. Say what you guys like, my pink version is the only arcee I'm allowing into my classics collection. Delicate warrior is not bad though, but kind of bare and lacking details imo. I love having movie arcee be my elita 1, prime arcee be chromia, and pe rc as arcee :grin:

For me, the pink one will be Classics Arcee. It's in the range for my tastes. I can probably do some finagling so the blue one looks different enough for Chromia.

Delicate Warrior is just as much, if not more posable than PE Arcee.

I like Motorbot but she does look somewhat out of place next to other Season 3 Classics characters.

I know a lot of people are getting an IDW vibe from the Perfect Effect toy but when you go back and compare images (where Arcee is drawn well and not like a techno-organic monster), Arcee is closer to the iGear rendition.

Both are good and obviously the iGear one has since disappeared but in my opinion, iGear is the better choice for a Classics style shelf.

The PE one for those that are wondering has the following flaws to deal with:

-the head is lacking detail and the pull-out ears are a hassle
-she's a bit of a parts-former (not a problem for me but maybe others)
-feet never really hit center of gravity
-arms feel really delicate (though they seem to be sturdy)
-chest will come apart during posing
-some massively tight joints

iGear's has the following flaws to deal with:
-general lack of detail (though it's cartoon accurate)
-chest does not lock
-legs don't have a specific locked home in alt mode
-feet are a bit small (stands fine but not like, never worry about it fine)
-one arm sits in place in alt mode, again, doesn't lock
-tough to get all four wheels down in alt mode.

Best part of PE Arcee? Crazy fun with guns and stuff to do.

Best part of iGear Arcee? Shockingly great articulation.

Delicate warrior has such good articulation eh? Thats pretty cool, I'm surprised. A lot of the pics somehow leave her looking kinda wierd and rigid, especially for the open legged stance where the toes face outward in each direction.

You're right about the flaws of PE Arcee, but you left out one problem from my pink version; the hands don't seem to grasp the swords too well. The guns are a bit better.

Also, I really wish it had a better face/head. Its not terrible, but it's the low point whenever I look at her.

I never understood the whole "not classics enough for me" argument.

For me "classics" means 2 things in robot mode:

1. Cartoon accurate (or at least giving off the original characters G1 vibe)
2. Articulated joints so it isnt like an 80's figure.

As far as alt modes, The whole "Neo look" thing only came about because Hasbro doesnt want to pay licensing fees to a bunch of car, boat, and airplane companies. So the "not" alt modes were born. And in some cases, alt modes like a boombox or a microscope had to be changed to make the figures more fun for kids. All this "classics aesthetics" talk is a joke in my opinion. Impossible Toys, and X-Transbot figures look great with Hasbro classics figures. As far as Motobot is concerned, The pink one aint G1 Arcee. But the blue one works well for G1 Chromia because her obscurity allows more room for flexibility in our imaginations. We expect G1 Arcee to look a certain way because she was a mainstream character.

I didn't fully understand what you were getting at, haha. At first it seemed like you were being more open to the designs while still being classic, and then PE Arcee is shutdown as G1 :lol: I see what you mean though.

It might not be G1 for most, but I'm able to allow my imagintion to stretch, and just see her bike mode (and related robot form) as just another evolution of her own form towards a different stage. I still see her as being "G1" as I see her as the same character from the toon, but then I add the personas of IDW in there, and animated, as different stages in her life that has finally brought her to this form. This is also coming from someone who only collects one mould per character, so you would have to keep that in mind (I try to keep only the best rendition that fits with all the other figures I consider the best of).

Rated X often seems to intentionally misunderstand stuff so he can argue about it. I wouldn't worry if you missed the specific point of his rant.

As Counterpunch says, at least from my understanding, since I don't have it, but have seen a lot of pics, the Delicate Warrior does have very good articulation. The PE one seems pretty capable of posing too though.

I agree about the apparent tightness of some joints and some pieces looking very fragile. If I get Motobot, I'm going to be treating her like glass for at least the first few times I attempt to transform her.

Regarding the conflicting looks of the two...I think it's the lack of detail on the iGear version. Yes, it is cartoon accurate, but very few of my Classicsverse collection are. There are some that come pretty close, but then there are guys like Rodimus or Kup, and since Arcee is likely to spend a lot of time being displayed alongside those two, I want a version of her that I think looks good standing in a S3 lineup. The iGear version is probably the most G1 of all the Arcee's we've had. There was the Valkyrie one, but I've heard that quality was bad, and really, I'd be hard pressed to tell you which is which between Valk and Del Warrior in a comparison pic, since they both followed the same design. The PE one being a parts former doesn't worry me at all, and she has loads of weapons and a pretty cool alt mode. It's no more of a departure than my Classics Perceptor, and at least looks very IDW in robot mode.

I still wish there was a modern update of the car version of Arcee. Something like the Animated one, but just a bit less cartoony. I'd hoped for a War For Cybertron one, as that was just about good enough for me as far as updated designs go, and who knows, maybe Hasbro will eventually create a toy based on the IDW incarnation. I've still not bought an Arcee toy, but the pink Motobot looks good enough, it's just the price keeping me from pulling the trigger on it.

As long as I can look at a figure and link it with the character, it doesn't have to be spot-on. Hell, I don't want it to be spot-on. FP's Insecticons aren't exact copies of the G1 Insecticons, and that actually makes me like them more.

I look at 'Motobot', the pink one and I connect it to Arcee. The blue one, Chromia.

Okay, so... just broke a piece on my pink motobot :-(
The double barrel that forms the sniper rifle bipod. I was pulling the piece off the seperate arm/bike rear piece when the black part that allows one of the barrels to swivel snapped off when pulling the piece off. Theres just no good place to grab at it to remove it. Luckily I was able to add just little enough glue that it stuck back, and still allows the barrel to swivel.

So, tip for the future, when removing the barrels, i would swivel them outwards first as if making it a bipod stand, and then that allows you enough room to grab the entire base piece off whatever hole. DON'T put your fingers on each side of each barrel where they swivel and tug, as you are applying a lot of pressure on a fragile point with moving parts.
