In the ever growing confusion of Arcee sister continuity, Hunt for the Decepticons Elita-1 has showed up on TFclub's Taobao account. With that we get images of the back packaging of the figure and her biography. Per the usual, this toy biography does not mention Elita-1 as being part of Arcee, instead she's Arcee's sister by birth or law. Of course none of that matters as long as Elita-1 comes with combining instructions to form an unknown amalgamated combiner with Deluxes Chromia and Arcee, right?

Though she is a sister to Arcee, Elita-1 has more in common with Sideswipe. She and the Swordsman team up whenever possible - especially if it means they can get away somewhere nice to do a little Decepticon hunting. This time, the two Autobots have found themselves up against Axor, who should present just enough of a challenge to make things interesting.

I have the feeling that hasbros not going to give us the combination instructions but tarkara might. When you look at the figures two arcee molds & a chromia look like they would combine better than two chromias and an arcee. And if all else fails im sure some one will figure it out and post it online. Either way the combined form is just going to look like you threw all three figures at a wall and picked up the pile.

why did hasbro even bother releasing this


this should have been release at least during the nest global alliance thing
even better would have been when arcee and chromia came out


but now?

So she dumped Optimus for Sideswipe? At least Chromia's bio mentioned Ironhide. Maybe Elita decided Optimus was too tall for her. If you ask me these ugly things are an insult to G1 Elita, Arcee and Chromia. They even made them all into the same character, completely stripping them of individuality. I might get this one anyway, since they are so few female toys and the only one I've managed to get so far is Animated Arcee.

So this explains why the mini-mold of her (but I think she's called Arcee, being red) is with HA Sideswipe? Why paint it differently and give it a new name then? LOL.


edit: Psst, likwid! XD

edit again: . . . HOW does she get a level 4 difficulty?!

Most edited post ever: My bad, she came with Skids didn't she? 8-}

LoL hey you!

This is all due to the fact someone, somewhere screwed up and the plans for the combniation were scraped but the figures were still being made..I'm willing to bet that another elita 1 mold is out there somewhere on someone's desk...

as I said before, releasing this figure makes no sense whatsoever...

Meh, I like the paint scheme. But it's a shame we won't get the real 3rd sister.

I do however find it funny that so many people thought all 3 were gonna combine. They never did in the movie, so why would the toys. And besides, I never heard or saw anywhere that Hasbro said the toys would.

Because Chromia and Arcee (And possibly by extension Elita-1) all have connector parts which implies they combine with each other in some sort of sexy robot three-way.

This is probably the biggest let down in a rather promising quarter from Hasbro. After all the hype about the combing and all.. I really don't care if it does. I just wanted a slight remold, purple screen accurate sister.

Their was CG animantion on the ROTF Blu ray showing the combined form of the 3 sisters thus "So many people" thought they would combine in some way..While hasbro never "Officially" announced that they would combine, they also never denied ;)

It is the movie line. HASBRO must make money from repaints so they can give us new molds (read: Generations) we really want. That's the canned reply anyway.

Because you have to be a 4th level magician to be able to get her to stand in any pose by herself...

LoL Prime's gonna be PO'd! They should've made a new mold. I still can't get over the fact that they kept us waiting for like almost a year for a repaint. Might pick it up for my sister; she likes the Arcee sisters.

I'm sure there are people who say the same thing about any of the other characters from the movies that have G1 counterparts. You have to remember, the movies are their own mythology and timeline. Also, hello Tampa, Florida. I'm about 15 minutes away from there in Pinellas Park.

I know that I add nothing to the conversation, but I guess I've just been having one of those mornings, and that line struck me as hilarious. I've been laughing for four minutes. Thanks a ton dude.

But that's where the level 4 magician part comes into play. I swear, this thread has just made me laugh. Thanks to you all for your insight. God, I love Seibertron.com (most) times.
