Fellow Seibertronian Dr. Caelus just reported having received Transformers Earthrise Arcee from Target. That means their initial stock from Hasbro has come in and they are fulfilling orders. It is unknown if some of this initial stock is also going to be distributed to stores. But for everyone hoping for more Earhtrise on the shelves, this is a good sign that they are on their way. Dr Caelus also left us with a small review of the figure along with some images, showing that they now have the figure.

Dr. Caelus wrote:I am genuinely conflicted on Arcee. I got her half-off, so I can't complain about much, but...

The hoverboard has a weirdly complex mechanism which, as far as I can tell, is only there so she can transform without removing it. I would rather they had used those parts to hide the car seats and windshield at the front of the board, maybe to reveal guns or a canard. The wheels of course fold in, but I would rather they had tilted out to look like VTOL turbines. Most of all, though, where are the COMBAT ports? I get not making Arcee COMBAT compatible, but they could have made up for it by loading the board's underside with 5mm connectors. Aside from those complaints, my only real disappointnent is how much her face looks like porcelain.

And here my Arcee order on Amazon has been pushed back to October 16th. It's a real gamble lately, deciding who to order from. I think I'm just going to preorder from every website and cancel whoever doesn't get their stock first... :twisted:

Apeface jetmode Inferior
Snapdragon jetmode Superior


Robot mode as well. Beast mode I'm torn. Apeface's beast mode might be more fun.
Yeah, I gotta give it to Apeface in beast mode. If nothing else, just the actual ape face. But overall he seems to be more coherent and well-designed. Like the ape mode was the primary focus of the designers and the other modes depended on it, whereas with Snapdragon the beast mode is kinda jumbled and looks like an afterthought.

Having him in hand, I don't think it's bad per say, more, inelegant, the transition from waist to torso is pretty jarring, but other than that, I'd say it's pretty good, but I will say that the focus of snapdragon seems to be the jet mode as it's glorious

I will FOREVER love and cherish my Thrilling 30 Arcee over the newer versions they might put out

Perfectly fine with my 2014 Arcee, but my buddy in my unit who’s new to collecting will love this. Hoping Wave 2 will hit this month!

I'd like to see some comparison shots with TR Arcee.

I wasn't expecting you specifically to provide them, I was speaking generally.

I'm most likely gonna keep the ER Arcee I get from Wal-mart (when they do decide to eventually ship her -_-), but I also have the Takara legends Arcee And I would really love to see what ER Arcee looks holding her accessories; the two swords and guns she has.

My ideal Arcee is never going to happen, but I will say this one isn't as terrible as I initially thought. Or I just warmed to the mold after seeing Paradron Medic and Elita :lol:

I know the pandemic slowed things down some, but I understood Hasbro wasn't going to be delaying these much, if at all, but we're near the end of the 3rd quarter of the year, and Wave 2 is only NOW showing up? I wonder if this will delay Kingdom.

I have mine ordered through Amazon as well and if I find her in stores first, I'll cancel the amazon order. Same with my walmart orders, if I find them in store, I'll cancel the preorder. I did that with the entire first set of netflix ones.

Where did you get the gold 2000 power sword? That was pretty cool.

I didn't realize they not only didn't give the new Arcee any lip color, but none on her face either. man that's so boring.

Target just delivered my Snapdragon, and I have to say it's a great figure. Only issue I had with him is securing his titan master into the beast mode head, but otherwise he's amazing

I feel like the faceplate on the Titan Master's back isn't as tight as others so Krunk's neck moves more and that range of movement makes it troublesome to line up and snap into the upper jaw.

Thank you so much for posting this! Nabbed a preorder for Soundwave myself. Hopefully the others will at least show up in actual stores.
