ive got all the FE figures and the current wave of PRID and tbh since i didnt pay secondary market for any (except £35 for soundwave), i honestly dont have the hatred/resentment of PRID that most people seem to have. I love this Arcee!
The PRID Arcee is much more accurate and the figures are well scaled to each other. the quality of the model is a result of the complexity of the transformation more than anything (hasbro have done this to appeal to their core audience, which isnt complexity loving collectors) and it IS more loyal to her show design despite its simplicity (the arms and the chest are much more accurate). I can tolerate the wings
I sick of this trend for slagging off PRID comparing it to FE, the FE line came and went (too soon i grant you), its a secondary market item (unless you buy takara versions, which ARENT hard to find) and this is what we have now. Its not the same line and it sure as hell isnt masterpiece! And in the big scheme of things, will you even give a crap about these things a year or two from now when several dozen more toys will have come and gone? People who dont own these figures, with all due respect, have waited 3 months before trying to pick them up. I respect that people want to go into local shops to buy them (i think thats a bit unrealistic, but then im British and we survive on online sellers for a lot of our figs), but if you sat on your hands for 3 MONTHS then you lost out on this line (plenty of ebay sellers ive seen do the deluxe figures at less than £10 over the £14 rrp, i refuse to believe there arent americans doing the same), i wish people would just get over it. Slag off the design if you feel that strongly, but the FE is better argument is just tired and pointless. And for the record, all those individual scalpers (that arent shops) that are asking stupid prices are mostly fans like us.
Mindvvipe is right, FE is a collector line, PRID is a toyline. Comparing the two is just a waste of time, she will fit in with the line of figures we're going to be getting
sorry to rant
