Third-party toy maker PerfectEffect have tweeted a couple of unblurred prototype images of the their upcoming Arcee homage figure. The figure has a motorcycle alt mode reminiscent of Energon Arcee and appears to come with a large sniper style rifle. Images from their twitter account mirrored below.

UPDATE: Added additional images revealing the face.

;)^ Gundam this just keeps getting better and better. It has a total Cyclone look to it and that is not bad at all! IMHO this bot mode doesn't really capture that Arcee-ish look and style but that is nothing to sneer at! This could so pass for someone else like Elita 1 perhaps.

This is a definite buy fans and I will add it to the fold...'nuff said!! :VEHI:

I'm not seeing an Arcee in this. The head doesn't look right, but the shot really isn't all that focussed on the head is it?

I'll probably get it and depending on colour will call it by another fembot's name.

Do we really need another Arcee bike that costs three times more than the others and won't be in scale with anything?

I dig it, but... it doesn't look feminine enough to make me think of Arcee. So far i'm in the 'pass' catergory. Considering I still need a 3rd party Devastator, Insections, sharkticons, etc., this is sorta unimportant.

Looks great but we still can't see the head that well. I'm hoping for Junkion colors on this lady as a repaint.

I ran across a clear image of the face over at TFW2005. You can check it out here:

I'm really liking what I see. The head doesn't scream "Arcee" to me but it's a great looking sculpt. I think Flareup and female Junkion would look amazing here.

I am so in. I'm excited to see PE work on a larger scale. IMO, regardless of being "Arcee" or not, this one will nail being a fun transformer. These picks do a lot for me. For all she works with the PE warriors, the scale is delicious. Also, I'm not having a problem seeing her design as feminine. I do believe, she has a deliberately cinched in waist and the face does it for me. The helmet it is a bit much though, is that due to transformation? Still if PE could put a clean face on their scouting force, I've got now worries she'll be fine.

Me too. Their smaller stuff never interested me until they did Scout Force X (Reflector). Those are amazing little guys. One of my favorite purchases, possibly ever. So I'm really pretty excited for this.

i already have delicate warrior, so im not chomping at the bit for an arcee, but its looking promising. its kind of hard to tell its a female though, just kinda looks like a skinny bot. some paint will probably help in that area though.

the only thing that would turn me off is plastic quality. PE is improving with every release, but still not quite FP grade yet.

Trust me, this one's taller than Energon Arcee, PE Arcee comes to Wreck-Gar's chin, Energon Arcee probably doesn't even reach his chest. :lol:

Looks good, but I'm still hoping it won't be an Arcee homage. Plus, judging from the size, it looks like it will be almost deluxe-size, which means it will probably be expensive, considering how they price the Shadow Warriors and the Scouting Force........show me some color, then I may bite....

WTF?! It was bad enough that Hasbro seems to have mostly forgotten that Arcee was ever a car and mainly makes her as a motorcycle, but now 3rd party companies have given in too? Not that I care, since I don't get 3rd party things, but it still baffles me.

Not really doing it for me. Not that it isn't a great looking TF, but it just doesn't seem like Arcee.

As an updated ENERGON Arcee ... okay, sure. But a G1 ish Arcee ... not quite so much. Maybe this is our first 3rd party Energon homage.

So what do you use for your Arcee "stand-in", that small third-party one, Animated, or the original Energon Arcee? As much I admit I never cared for them before, but I did like that Animated Arcee, and I'm seriously thinking of getting one if I ever find one.
Re: Clear Images of PerfectEffect's PE-12 (1293565)
Posted by cylor on September 25th, 2011 @ 3:55pm CDT
I use an Animated Arcee with uuser's custom head. I still think it's the best option, as I don't dig Delicate Warrior's design, and I just don't think this PE one would make a good Arcee. I think It would make a great Firestar, though, and possibly a good Elita-1...

Those who are complaining about this figure's feminity: what would you suggest as improvements? A handbag? Thirty different pairs of feet? A voice box with the phrases "stop scratching yourself" and "not tonight. I've got a headache?" Maybe a small hole inbetween her -alright, that's enough!

I like this figure, but not as Arcee. I've become rather smitten with IDW's feral banshee. I'm with Mkall and amcgrath929: if this comes in any colours other than pink I'll get it and name it something else. I wouldn't want this as a female Junkion though. The design is too futuristic and clean.

Posted by kirbenvost on September 25th, 2011 @ 6:19pm CDT
This is pretty impressive. I could definitely see it as a Classics/Generations-style Arcee. It looks really good for the size and style of figure. Knowing PE's pricing though, I'm betting it will be out of my price range. The maximum I would want to spend on a deluxe-sized figure would be $80.

Depending on what the final, painted version looks like, I may pick this up. Not a perfect Arcee homage but a pretty good looking figure. Certainly better than the other recent 3P Arcee offerings.

In my experience they produce high quality products. I've never had any problems and I have just about everything they've put out.

I've pretty much come to terms that I don't really care who it's meant to be. I want a version of this mold. Sure, I'd like female Junkions or homages to any of the Botcon 05 bike girls, Arcee would be great too. I'm thinking it won't really matter who she is though. Looks fantastic and I'll be getting at least one.

As a robot, I like it.

As a transformer, I like it.

As Arcee, not so much.

Depending on price, I'll probably get it, as I think it is an interesting bot, and I'm a sucker for a bike-bot. But I would probably be happier with a repaint/remold of this in Junkion colors or Cy-Kill colors, as others have suggested. Though I think TF Prime Arcee might make a better Cy-Kill.

Or maybe it IS supposed to be a Classics-style Energon Arcee. :-?

Well, if the shoulders and the hips weren't so wide, she would have a much better silhouette, IMHO. Also a longer neck would help. Far better than the stiletto heels she already has, or than the improvements suggested above :lol:

Tomopop have posted some up new up close images of PerfectEffect's upcoming PE-12 prototype. The figure is speculated to be an Acree homage, though at this point that has yet to be confirmed. These new images taken at Super Festival show the figure in much greater detail than we've previously seen. Take a look at the images mirrored below.

As many others said i am not feeling this as arcee, but if they do a few repaints to match PE-05 & PE-06 Ejector & Rewinder I will get them.

That's a sexy looking bot. Would love to own it if the price isn't too steep. After MP-10, I've pretty much exhausted my fig funds for the next two months or so.

Wow! Looks like she's loaded for bear! In addition to the sniper rifle looks like she's got twin pistols and twin swords on her back too. This just went from maybe to WANT!

If it is Arcee, I'm not liking how: A. It's a motorcycle (I want a car Arcee, or Carcee) and B. It comes with a sniper rifle that DOES NOT look like it turns into 2 pistols.

It's funny, but it seems like every Arcee we see is just SLIGHTLY off in its head sculpt. While I really like this one, it's a little boxy/masculine for a Femmebot. You could paint it in Junkeon colors and not think a thing about it looking like a girl.

And on that note... we can't seem to get a sculpt that looks like a girl in its torso. That could be Hardhead or Nightbeat just as convincingly as Arcee looking at the head and chest.

But still, it does look like a nice toy. In pink, I'm sure I'll cave and get one.
