She's not perfect but I think she looks awesome. Yeah, the proportions are weird in certain areas and the backpack looks messy from a lot of angles, but they clearly put a lot of thought and design work into this. My only surprise is there's no Daniel figure or stand. It remains to be seen if she can actually stand without one because of those tiny feet. But I'll find a solution. Excited to add her to my collection.

I wasn't so sure about Bumblebee 2.0 but I ended up really liking him. So I'm sure Arcee will be great.

One thing this highlights is the odd proportions of MP Hot Rod. I'm not in a rush for another one, but I wouldn't be surprised if they're planning it.

Add to the list of reasons to pass: they gave her the face of a blow-up doll. :BANG_HEAD:

I was thinking the same thing. The chest on Hot Rod is really bad and the fact that he has the two red pieces behind his shoulders that break up the yellow spoiler is also really bad. That mold drives me crazy, and not in a good way. Arcee, while not perfect, is a step in the right direction from flat torso Hot Rod.

While a new - gimmick-free - MP Rodimus Prime would be the ideal, I wonder who would be most likely as the next of the MP Movie characters? Kup? Springer? Blurr? ...Wheelie?

Looks nice but oof, $150 again. Not a fan of this current trend of MP’s going for double what they used to be. Still holding out hope for a sale on Hound, he’s one I’ve been wanting even before he was announced.

Yes, I'd rather have any of the other 1986 main movie cast other than another Hot Rod. They had 2 shots at him ... time for someone else!

Indeed. The only G1 Masterpiece I actually want. But realistically, Takara's bias towards Autobots pushes him down the list. As previously noted, MP-36 was the last New Decepticon in this line. 2-3 years ago and it doesn't look like HasTak are in any rush for the next one. :(

I'm not gonna be buying it, but I'm still gonna complain/opinionate about it.

Some of these pictures make her look really good. I mean it's obvious her entire alt-mode is on her back, she's gonna be a shellformer for sure. The robot mode looks fine, but the sight of her butt and thighs hanging out the rear bottom of her car mode makes me think that she transforms pretty much like Generations Arcee, except with more backpack origami. However: those additional faces almost all look the same. They couldn't include one with the red visor?

I thought the same, why do these all look identical?

The red visor comes down from the top of the head so it'll cover the eyes on whatever face plate you're using...not that I see much difference.

I think both Hot Rod and Arcee look pretty good overall. But I don't know, I think it's enough MP for me, at least for now.

Is she perfect? Absolutely not. Am I psyched about this figure? Yes, very, very much. And infinitely more positive about this than, say, another iteration of G1 Optimus Prime or more versions of Starscream/Skywarp/Acid Storm etc.

It's not the best-of-all-possible worlds Arcee, but it's proportionately priced and a hell of a long way from being a crime against nature and the vehicle mode is actually better than ANY third party version. And the transformation looks (but probably isn't) elegantly simple. And kibble-free. No-one at all thinking that's a good thing?

And this will be tweaked endlessly, and sooner or later, the chest section and the face will be sorted. There will be a Paradron Medic TT Mall Exclusive repaint within six months and probably a Head or Targetmaster version within 12.

So, I say: Yay. But cautiously.

The visor is in her helmet.

Maybe an upgrade set can sort the chest out but at her price she should be perfect from the get go, maybe even a bit more complex and maybe give the option of some front headlights from rotating panels or something to make her on a similar level to sunstreaker.

It's not just the front of her chest but the sides of her entire torso too that need to be higher.
