Courtesy of the Cybergundam blog we have a scan from the latest issue of Hobby Japan magazine that features Transformers Prime Arms Micron AM-10 Bulkhead and AM-11 Arcee. Each comes with an Arms Micron that transforms into the respective character's signature weapon, a wrecking ball for Bulkhead and a blade for Arcee. Like the previous Arms Micron releases, these two come with additional ports for the Arms Microns and sticker sheets. We also see EZ Collection Dreadwing, Ironhide, Starhammer with Wheeljack, a Masterpiece Lambor concept sketch, and the Exclusive Campaign Arms Microns that were revealed earlier this morning.

That Arcee looks awesome! I didn't plan on making any Arms Micron purchases but I might have to make an exception

Man, the RID Bulkhead mold is the gift that keeps on giving...me indigestion. Takara is using the same mold as Hasbro, but not including the massive mechtech weapon, which is less plastic overall.

And why is Arcee pink? There's not a drop of pink anywhere on her in the show. At least, not in this series.

You're right, absolutely no pink anywhere there. ;)

Just asking... what color are her wrists, elbow casings, and shinguards in bot mode and wheel protector thingy in bike mode...?

Because that's the only pink things that are pictured on the toy, and I'm not sure how you can see that same pink on the toy and not the same color on the same areas on the animation model...

The animation model uses white, not pink. Best seen in bright scenes:

Maybe under certain light, it looks pink. But nothing like that figure.

That's still pink...

I think that either one of us is color blind, or we're looking at different parts here.

Here. A color comparison. On the bottom is Pure White. The Right is taken from the leg braces of AM-11 Arcee, and the Left is from the leg braces of Arcee in the pic you posted.

Image

I'll admit that there is a slight Pink tint in her white, but nowhere near Takara's version.

I used the Color Picker and get this:

Clearly we're talking about different things...

The color variance in your eye sight may be to blame(loaded word, I know, sorry). That's not saying that you're wrong, just that you don't see it as pink because you're biologically unable to.

Both pictures have the circled parts in the same shade(also seen on her "ears" and head crest) and to the rest of us, it's the same pink as that on the figure.

*Sigh* i thought i said i didnt want to start this fight, but since the can of worms is open, here's what i see: the bits that orangitis pointed out are a highly reflective white i think, because in the first pictures of her in the base they look white, in the daylight they look pink. Its actually best seen at night when there not much to reflect off of

Image

See? white. I know, im aware this image is not the highest quality, so if you don't trust this image, it's from Crisscross in season one, fast forward to the part where mech knocks arcee out, zoom in and take a screencap. It'll be white.

Again, im not trying to come off like an ass or throw it in anybody's face what i think, i just dont see where people can see pink

Oh, a debate I can get behind, as long as it's civil.

Your screenshot has extremely low resolution, to the point where I can see the blues and yellows in the claimed "white" color. Not a good example IMO.

However...

All screenshots and all different angles. Pink pink pink. =D

If this screenshot is from the episode I think it is...
[Holding up an exhaust pipe] "Maybe it needs one of these doohickeys..."
"You're a motorcycle, Arcee. Shouldn't you know how to build a motorcycle engine?"
"You're a human, Jack. Can you build me a small intestine?"
Always makes me crack a smile

Back on topic, I believe her details (wrist, leg, elbow, cheek, crest details) are pink and always have been pink but due to how the lighting can vary in each episode I can see where some of the other opinions are coming from

yeah, all those pink bits are definitely pink.

that AM Arcee looks pretty nice. Hope to see her Micron in the individual releases.

If I may cast my vote, having never really paid attention to Arcee's highlights I had always thought they were a pale gold. Having looked at some of the stills I'm going to say they're pale pink/platinum.

The pink parts are pink and the snozberries taste like snozberries. End of debate.

The Show Model looks more Rose Gold to me :L i imagine that the colour is not identical every time she appears, much the same as every characters height seems to vary depending on who they are standing next to
