PE DX 01 is not necessary, Arcee isn't blue and Chromia isn't a bike. Fem bikes are Movie, Energon and Prime, not G1/Classics. I have no right to say what people should spend their money on but I really feel like $100 is a steep price to fiddle with a new TF mold, and if it's fixing your Sniper Recon Transformers/Robot fix, there's alternatives.
All in all this character just needs a bloody break, every Autobot doesn't need a gf.
I beg to differ. New TF moulds are always welcome, with the loads of repaints we get from hasbro.
Fembots are rare enough that I don't think any attempt on one should be responded with negative feedback (just saying).
Arcee really didn't get a decent figure (except the igear), so 2 really isn't pushing it when there are many different megatrons, starscreams, primes, hell even the microns/3rd party targetmasters can't escape looking like the same old main characters.
But hey, if you don't think its classics/G1, up to you. I don't think the figure matches the looks of prime, the movie, maybe energon, but the engineering is so beyond that, that it really only feels right calling it classics.
Its not my sniper recon itch that PE scratches, its the amazing figure, combined with a lack of a good Arcee, and the fact that she has a bike mode that actually fits with the other fembots we have gotten. Cars for the femmes would probably make them look too fat and ugly anyway. Rather than have ugly TFs that are true G1, i don't mind sexy ones with a minor change in alt mode.
(not trying to sound hostile, just want you to reconsider the awesomness that is pe motobot)
