Wow, that's a hot pink! This figure is looking great though.

It's not Arcee. I like it, but I would much rather have the same body with an Elita One head. Or a female Junkion head sculpt and Junkion colors.

Looks as though this is going to be another superb PE fig. I would consider buying a second 'Junkion' version (provided there was some retooling), but no love for a blue Prime or greenish medic incarnation.

Looks great, and I agree that a Junkion version would be spectacular. That said, I also think I'll go after the pink.

Another example of where a little literature comes in handy. IDW Arcee is a bad ass. Teaming this figure up with Hardheaded will be cool.

Headrobots Hardhead, none the less.

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:

But back to the toy, It's a little bright, but It's a definite buy. Fantastic all around. I'm in for the recolors of Paradron Medic, etc. Head changes for Elita-1 and Junkion are a must, IMO.

Wreck Gar's wife "Nancy" anyone????

I've been wanting this from the start (yes, feeding my motorcycle bot addiction), but the more pictures I see of it, the more I want it. These latest pics really have me sold. As long as the price is halfway reasonable, I expect I'll be getting at least a couple different colors, too.
Really like the design asthetic on it, too.

Posted by Nemesis Destron on January 19th, 2012 @ 10:18am CST
I think the majority does not view this fem-bot as Arcee and rightly so. I was just now thinking of the name Cyclonia... :-? . But there is no denying the cool factor when looking at Motobot. So c'mon PE when and how much?? :VEHI:
Re: New Motobot PE-DX01 Prototype Images (1335654)
Posted by rpetras on January 19th, 2012 @ 10:26am CST
I really love this mold, and I plan to get any and all color variants/remold/repaints, price depending of course.

It won't be my Arcee, I already have a "Delicate Warrior" who is a perfect Arcee IMO, but these still look awesome with all of their bike-bot goodness.

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.

It will be mine!

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.

: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.
Re: New Motobot PE-DX01 Prototype Images (1335804)
Posted by gothsaurus on January 19th, 2012 @ 3:24pm CST
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.

Is this going to be made of soft plastic? Kind of looks like it in the pictures.

Hopefully the pink won't be as eye gouging as in the pictures. Should be a shit 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?

Diecast in the lower legs. I'm sold.
Re: New Motobot PE-DX01 Prototype Images (1336047)
Posted by Rated X on January 20th, 2012 @ 9:19am CST
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.

Posted by mattwhite924 on January 20th, 2012 @ 9:28am CST
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.
Re: New Motobot PE-DX01 Prototype Images (1336051)
Posted by gothsaurus on January 20th, 2012 @ 9:32am CST
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.

I'm pleasantly surprised by that price. Not sure if I can come up with that much so soon, but there are other things I want to order from RK as well, so maybe.
Re: New Motobot PE-DX01 Prototype Images (1336093)
Posted by rpetras on January 20th, 2012 @ 10:58am CST
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.

Ahhh yeah getting closer now. As much as I would love to order these awesome figs I gotta account for QC factors and IMO that's the only thing that can f*ck it all up now so.... :PRAY: :VEHI:

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.

RK has 'Bill me Later'? How did I miss this before? Well, regardless, I won't have the money if this thing releases in January anyway.

ARGH!!! What to do, what to do, what to do.

Currently have zero fembots. The only female Autobot I'm interested in getting is an Arcee (don't really care about Chromia, Moonwalker or Firestarter), but I'm struggling to get past the whole Arcee as a motorbike thing. That being said, I don't think we'll ever get a fembot that looks this good in robot mode that transforms into a car.

Thinking I may have to pull the trigger on the pink.

I'd also like to learn more about this "Bill me later" option mentioned by rpetras.

Posted by craggy on January 21st, 2012 @ 6:27am CST
looking really good. seems expensive though.am holding off right now. the robot mode is good enough for a Classics Arcee, and I do like the bike mode, but it's not specific enough that I couldn't end up using it as someone else if I miss out on the pink one and get a later repaint.
Re: New Motobot PE-DX01 Prototype Images (1336772)

Re: New Motobot PE-DX01 Prototype Images (1336883)
Posted by hpfabe on January 21st, 2012 @ 11:26pm CST
Just went to preorder the pink and the blue... cheapest shipping to the USA was $26. So, for the two bikes, my total is $186. This seems a little steep to me. I was figuring this would be more like $50-60 each, plus like $10-15 shipping.

Anybody have any thoughts on whether it's worth seeing if other places, like BBTS, will carry it? For less? Or will the preorders sell out?
Any thoughts?
Thanks.

I'm going to say that it's likely that other stores who have stocked Perfect Effect stuff in the past might get this in.

I have all the official authority and actual knowledge of this that a raccoon raking through Mr. T's bins does though, so it's up to you.

BBTS has offered everything PE has put out. I'm sure the pre-order is coming. Be patient guys.
