We do see one of these photos from Takara showing the figure with the bulkiest bits of the backpack removed and turning into a hoverboard. However, we see there that even with those bits removes, we still don't get the typical Arcee silhouette. Let us know if you think this is an improvement over the previous Generations/Legends Arcee and if you will be getting this toy when it comes out later this year.

I bet Hasbro / Takara will be there first.

Parts of the trailer are molded on the same sprues as parts of the figure, so it has to share the color scheme and they can't make the figure without the trailer (presumably). I feel like this gets brought up every time Prime is mentioned...
Also Arcee continues to just look to be a bad figure, so easy pass.

So firstly, that confirms that we are getting one. Secondly, we get a good look at the robot mode and it features a new headsculpt based on his look in the movie when he died. This would be the very first time the concept of a dead G1 Optimus Prime was sold by Hasbro since so far it was always exclusive Takara redecos.
You can watch the video from Swift Transform below which features a comparison with Transformers Earthrise Leader Class Optimus Prime.
He's dead, Jim.

Yes, why are you asking?

Pretty sure it looked like that in the renders.Sabrblade wrote:Did we know about Arcee's unpainted face before now?

The renders do show the very tip of the hood folded in. These pictures seem to show a hinge at the same point, but I can't tell if that part is a separate piece.

The T-30 one is still available (and much better looking) on BBTS, but the catch is you can only get her paired with with T30 Chromia for $29.99.

Just another option for anyone who is Arceeless and underwhelmed by the ER version.
