I am surprisingly underwhelmed by this Arcee. Her vehicle mode looks like a piece of candy. I'm glad I picked up the T30 Arcee. I will be honest, I'm still tempted to grab this Arcee. I might want to see the Takara version first to be honest. She is pretty well articulated so there's that. It bothers me that the paint on her mid-section and waist doesn't go all the way around to the back. I don't get why Hasbro does that.

That last shot really does sway me a little more to the "maybe" area rather than a hard no. I wonder if the rest of her backpack can be removed.

To be honest, it's a little underwhelming.

I thought that since they merged a year or two back, there wasn't going to be any deviations between Takara and Hasbro's TFs?

HasTak’s “unified brand cohesion” initiative; in other words there will be no differences between Hasbro and Takara releases, and Masterpiece and Selects figures that would normally be only seen in Japan is carried over as Hasbro Pulse exclusives and not imports, making them more widely available.

No, I'm extremely aware of that, I was wondering what supposed deviations they were referring to.

Fires of Inferno apparently hasn't gotten with the program yet. Look:

News flash: The "Flashier Takara version" thing died with the start of PotP.

Because they've never exactly been generous with regard to paint budgets on regular-release figures, and with a limited paint budget the deco artists tend to skimp on out-of-view areas.

I admit I'm somewhat warming up because of the articulation, but that lack of the T30 version's altmode integration still bugs me. I hope someone makes a headmaster conversion kit for her.

As for removing the rest of the backpack? Probably. But the problem with taking it all off is that would remove Arcee's signature behind-the-shoulder front fenders.

There's zero difference between the Takara version and the American (or wherever) version since the brand unification.

You mean.... they decided to combine their lines so that things will be smoother overall, and they decided to go with the WORSE paint applications? So the only hope for better figures is actually going to be 3rd party? BLLLLLAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGH

:roll:
1. This happened two years ago, what's your excuse for not noticing?
2. Of course they went with the tighter paint budget - I don't think Hasbro's shareholders would allow anything else.
3. It's just freaking paint apps. Stop being such a spoiled brat about it.

I'd also point out that Takara's prices were ridiculous. People are complaining about a $50 voyager with extra parts, but would happily shell out $40 for a prettier deluxe. Besides, Hasbro's paint apps are good enough. At least they stopped using stickers (personally was never against it, but I know a lot of people were)

1: I don't normally look at toy news other than releases.
2: yeah that makes sense really. the extra paint apps would be expensive and I'd probably go to Reprolabels for things anyway.
3: This is gonna sound weird coming from a guy who was just bitching about paint apps, but wow, calm down.

Yeah. Maybe sit the next couple of plays out.

Yeah, I'm not proud of that. Sorry I'm an idiot sometimes.

I was talking about Zelda, bro. He's going a bit HAM. Unnecessarily.

So....Allicions bot hands just hang off the back of the arms in Gator mode? Unless it was mistransformed, that's kind of goofy. With an incredibly simple transformation for a deluxe, you'd think they'd at least have wrists that fold.in.

I want vehicle weapon storage like we did in the old classic days, that just completed the figure for me.

Grrat figure, but his weapon is lame, needs a decent pistol.

I'm sorry for flying off the handle at you, Fires.

I was being reminded of the days when you could hardly move your mouse without hitting a "RARGH THERE'S LESS PAINT ON THIS! HASBRO IS SCAMMING US! GET THE TORCHES AND PITCHFORKS!" post... I wonder if you can get therapy for stuff like that trying your patience.

DMSL, which figure are you even referring to?
