Those are some nice figures. I'll hopefully be able to find an Arcee, and if he's ever released, I'll get the Ironhide version of the Cybertron Ratchet mold.

TRU can KMA... I hope the damned red faced Japanese version of Arcee doesn't have stressed thumb syndrome at least. Figures the one Japanese figure I get stuck having to buy is the less desirable version.

I'm looking forward more to the next figures we'll be seeing from Animated, but I'm starting to think about Arcee. Though, she still seems totally overrated.

And these two are still impossible to find! There's only one TRU that near me and it barely has any Animated left. Most of it is just a few Activators and maybe three deluxes that nobody wants.

The thumb issue not withstanding, I really like the figure. She's dreeeeeeeeammmy.


Oddly enough we never saw any Animated Blackarachnia repaints. I wonder if any Arcee repaints will appear (Elita-1?).

Sweet, I've been excited about these galleries since I first saw the banner a couple days ago! :D

It would be cool to see Arcee retooled into Hotrod... Her alt mode would be perfect for him!

So, fill me in...has Hasbro bumped the full release of Arcee? No joke, I shopped every TRU in Iowa, and all in the greater Chicago area in mid-March and came up empty. I've seen word of a May 1 re-release. What's the dealio? I have a 9 month old daughter and 5 year old niece that MUST have these. Oh, and 3 for myself...

Yeah, Arcee's a bombshell. Can't wait to pick up 3 and repaint two of them into Moonracer and Chromia.

Which would be silly because we are getting Animated Hot Rod (Rodimus Minor) anyways.

While we've seen Arcee and CM Ratchet for quite sometime, there's still the 'official' release of the two in May. So don't lose hope yet! [/color]

Where does this May release info come from? I would very much prefer to get the Hasbro version over the Takara one, especially at retail vs import prices, but I really don't want to pass on the Takara chance while its price is semi-affordable if this turns out to be hogwash. And yes, I am very pleased for having just used the word 'hogwash'.

If my memory serves, it was in a Collector's Club email advising of delayed and/or canceled Arcee preorders. It mentioned some hogwash about official release date by Hasbro pushed to May-something.

;)

Same here, I just pre-ordered mine because it was at least $10 cheaper in total than Ebay :( That and I refuse to pay those scalpers a dime. I haven't seen any pics of her Jap. colorings, is it really that bad? I hate this though, doesn't Hasbro relize I wan to waste my money on this fig just as much as anyone else? :evil: Just makes me upset for Rodimus, I REALLY want that one. By then who knows when the Jap. one will be comming out. It really puts me in a bind :sad:

This is the best Transformers news I've heard since January (when I started looking for her). :D

Btw, when did the club send out this e-mail? I signed up late February so it's likely I signed up too late to recieve it.

So, May is an estimate?

Yeah, I don't recall where it said May specifically, but Hasbro has the two as Spring 2010 all over the place.

Works for me. I'm a happy collector now. :D

If this figure still comes out in reasonable quantities, I'll take back my 'KMA' to TRU...unless of course it happens after I've already ordered the Takara one. Here's a copy of the worthless note I got from them when I inquired about its availability on the site or future availability in stores:

Thank you for contacting RUs.com and for your interest in the
availability of the "Transformers Animated Arcee Figure".

I've confirmed that the item in question is not carried online, and I
apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The "R" Us Family of
stores carries a huge assortment of items, and while many of the items
can be found both in store and online, there are some items that are
simply exclusive to one, or the other. It's also important to note that
while we do make every effort to offer a wide variety of the hottest new
toys and standard favorites, some items sell out quickly and may be
removed from the site.

I understand your interest in the "Transformers Animated Arcee Figure",
so I would like to suggest checking with your local Toys "R" Us to see
if they carry the item and have it in stock. I've included the link
below to help you find the store nearest you - just copy and paste it in
to your browser:

I thought the Takara one looked closer to red than pink, but the worst part about it is how dark her face is on the Takara...unless they were bad pics or it wasn't the final version, it just didn't look as good. Not terrible, but doesn't make you feel better about having to pay the import prices for an inferior fig.

Wait a minute...So these figures are getting released more widely in May? What is this date for?
