I won't be getting the pink bike, but any other repaints after, like the blue, I will be buying. And of course, I'm assuming there will be some bad ass black colored Con exclusive color by the time Botcon rolls around. :twisted:

They really nailed the female proportions on this mold. Beats the tar out of Delicate Warrior.

IDW Arcee would like to have a word with you.


Robot mode is pretty much spot-on, but I reckon Rated X was referring to the differences in alt-mode. Not too keen on bike-Arcees myself, but this figure is looking mighty tasty. That said, this particular prototype is looking a little rough around the edges.

gothsaurus wrote:As a side note, I hate it when the comics do a complete 180 from established canon. Just like jumping bouncing bad-@$$ Yoda, this bitter-assassin Arcee is so far from the caring, nurturing Arcee in the movie protecting the humans. It's like the new writers and artists have to put their stamp on things, and flipping a character to a complete opposite is the way to do it.
:BANG_HEAD:


I prefer IDW's Arcee to the G1 original. G1 Arcee was a boring and cliche female character. She was the Transformers equivalent of Reverand Lovejoy's wife ("Won't somebody please think of the children.") My ex actually found it a little insulting how Arcee was portrayed in the original animations, always fussing over the other characters to see if they were OK.

IDW's Arcee is more like X-Men's Mystique, Catwoman or a female Bond villian. The only thing I don't like about IDW's Arcee is (and please correct me if I read it all wrong) that there was a suggestion in Revelations that she was originally a dude.

Yeah, I don't mind edging her a little out of that "mom" role... but a complete flip is what bothers me. That one spotlight comic was just anger, vengeance, a lot of killin' and mech fluid everywhere. That was too much to sit right with me.

No, she was never a dude. She however was the first TF with a gender, all others TFs are neither dude nor chick.

Hopefully the pink won't be as eye gouging as in the pictures. Should be a **** ton more shades lighter.

She looks great, I will be getting this one.

I actually prefer the almost illuminating ultra bright pink :)
Do hope the price is reasonable, and that there will be repaints.

She does have the cyclone vibe, with the bulk and all.

Wow. These look fantastic in pink and blue. Cycle mode is sexy. Well... come to think of it, the alt mode might be a little bit as well. :-? Best not think about that too hard.

Nice they used die-cast a bit as well. I hope Hasbro sits up and takes notice. The 3rd party companies are beating them to the punch on Arcee, Devastator, Masterpiece Soundwave, a decent in-scale Megatron...

They gotta know we've been waiting for these, right?

I do like them but im not sure yet. I agree with the post earlier about a junkion repaint. Also I could do without diecast. It just raises the price, and a good coat of gloss over the painted plastic looks the same as diecast. My Fansproject Springer is too damn heavy from diecast.

I'm usually not a fan of motorcycle transformers, but these look really good. I'm not sure if I like the pink or blue better, but both do look pretty nice.

I think the diecast may be to strengthen a delicate part of the design in the foot. (?) If that's the case, then I'm all for it. Anything to protect these expensive 3rd party figures from breaking is a good thing. I WOULD like to get a few transformations out of them.

I might just have to think about setting money aside for one of them... can't decide if I want the Arcee or Chromia coloration though. Ugh! Lol. Love Arcee but I only have movie-verse Chromia. Would be nice to have something that's biped to represent her.

But both colors looks so awesome.

Preordered, along with Hegemon and the Leader Ironhide weapon upgrades.

They will all arrive together whenever the last guy, Hegemon I think, ships.

I was in the same boat, I didn't want to spend all that clink at once, but I figured if I combined all that shipping, I would end up saving some dough on stuff I was going to end up ordering anyway.

I put it all on Bill me Later, so I can pay it off as I come up with the money.
For Sale:
Classics Magnus/Skywarp 2 pack MIB
Classics Devastator MIP
HA Sideswipe K-Mart exclusive color Loose

Currently looking for:
ROTF Target exclusive Sideswipe from the 2-pack
TFCC Punch/Counterpunch
Alternity Primes, silver & white versions
(opened is OK, to be used for customs)

I'd love to see Nancy kinda ret-conned with no pink. That's a little too Arcee. Her matching nicely with Wreck-Gar would be awesome.
