Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, -WonkoTheSane-, has let us know that Takara Tomy have released new images of Earthrise Deluxe Class Arcee (with Cyberverse Deluxe Class Arcee posing as well) and Earthrise Deluxe Class Trailbreaker! These are being used to promote the toys for the Japanese releases. It should be noted that while Arcee will see a retail release in Japan, Trailbreaker is instead a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive, joining an ever growing amount of Earthrise that is exclusive.

For those in the rest of the world though, Earthrise Arcee is part of the Wave 2 Deluxes and Trailbreaker being part of a future wave.

Regardless of aesthetic differences, Cyberverse Arcee manages to be better than ER Arcee.

ER Arcee should have died on the drawing board. That needlessly unintegrated transformation... Ugh. All you had to do was give us "T30 Arcee but with ankle tilts and 5mm hands", HasTak. That or a headmaster version... Not a foolhardy attempt at downscaling the already-questionable MP design. Whoever let this filth proceed past the sketch stage should be demoted to copyboy. It's of course too late to axe the abominable waste of plastic and molds now.. maybe at least it'll get vandalized in stores instead of bought?

Trailbreaker is good though, looking forward to him.

I know it's been mentioned already ad nauseam since ER Arcee's reveal, but G1 Arcee really is just a BAD design that shouldn't still be getting use if this is what it results in. The IDW comics did multiple G1 Arcee designs that had actual kibble integration, and some even had actual Earth modes, Hasbro should either use those or just make Prime Arcee their "Evergreen" Arcee design.

Scorponok looks great, but I don't buy/have room for Titan figures, and I prefer a comic-sized Scorpy anyway.

Still looking forwards to Airwave and Alicon though!

Yeah, and T30 Arcee's integration was also terrible. Earthrise is incrementally worse, but only just.

At the time I thought TR Arcee was an uninspired overuse of Blurr's mold, but now it's my favorite toy version of the character.

All that said, even with both T30 Arcee and TR Arcee, I'm getting ER Arcee anyway. I've been getting pretty much all of the ER releases, and I think she'll fit in well beside Siege Springer and the rest of the animated movie lineup, especially if that group gets filled out through Studio Series.

Her G1 design has been made into a decent toy before:

It is perfectly possible. All they had to do was use the same integration tricks the version they already made used. That was all they needed to do. They've done it before.

But no. No, instead what they tried to do was downscale the MP design (which was already iffy) into a Deluxe. And predictably, it resulted in a trainwreck. Just like the THREE DIFFERENT TIMES they tried downscaling MP-01. You'd think they'd have learned, but apparently not.

And this doesn't even do anything useful (like, say, have a Titan Master head and seat) to make up for the clunk.

They should have known better. They should have done better. They could have done better. They knew how to do better.
And yet, we got this trash.

So AFAIC, ER Arcee's value is equivalent to that of an Armada Side Swipe that's been run over by a truck.

:roll: Oh, get real. "Actually integrates the chest and legs into the car" is leagues ahead of "Wears the entire car mode on the back". And T30 Arcee manages to put the unintegrated parts on the back far more compactly.

I'm disappointed that both Arcees have their head in one solid color. ER should have at least a pink face while CV should have a white face or a very pale pink.

I can predict that Deluxe Cyberverse Arcee will be the superior toy compared to the Earthrise.

The only parts of her robot mode that are visible in car mode are the chest and the sides of her thighs, and I agree that's better than the ER one, and that the backpack is smaller. But in both T30 and ER, most of the car is stored on the back, I don't know why that provoked eye-rolling, but whatever, different people like different things.

At least her deco will be accurate. No black parts.

Eh the T30 mold is also a terrible transformer, it's literally just "humanoid female with backpack" and it just really screams that uncomfortable "Japan design" vibe that shouldn't be in a kid's franchise.

It's a fine figure sure and probably the best G1 Arcee figure but it still suffers from the problems that are inherent to that design.

I just can't get over how much I hate that design and how lazy it is, I think it's so bad that the ROTF "mermaid" bike designs are better then the G1 design in every aspect.

The black parts were accurate to the IDW comics, who were big at the T-30 times.

And thanks to the sun, parts of my T-30 Arcee are salmon-orange. #-o

That problem was already resolved with the Legends release years ago.

Who would have thought that a Cyberverse figure would be better than it's Generations counterpart?

Not to throw this off the rails or anything, but all this talk of Arcee's and I still find the most fun Arcee figure to transform into a car is the Animated version. Cool swords, nice articulation, cartoon accurate mostly, and the integration of her kibble is done reasonably well. Would love if we got more Arcees like her (the Cyberverse takes some cues in design, which I find somewhat flattering.) The earthrise figure, if and when I get her sadly will need some touch-ups on her. I definitely wish the vehicle mode could have been integrated better.
(if I had my way, instead of a "hover-board" the detachable bits would break apart into little arm and leg guard to attach to her, almost like a mini weaponizer already included with her. Would free up the backpack abit, and give her an alternate bulky look.)

I do agree that the TFA Arcee is the best of the Arcees so far, with TFP a close 2nd. But the best use of that mold is the Botcon 2011 Drag Strip.

As for Earthrise, I finally found the Seeker 2-pack at my Target, it was the only one they had.

Hot. Damn.

That Scorponok looks fantastic! When he's in stock and ready to go for his wide release, I'll need to find him and Sky Lynx. Those are a pair of great looking figures.

also, I love that Scorponok head! That is the best looking Titan head we have gotten, easy.

While I do prefer the comic Scorponok that is a large Cybertron and not a city, I still think this is a great size and I will love him on the shelf. the titans will finally be complete, and i think Scorponok will be displayed with some bots in claws. As to which ones, we will need to see..

Earthrise Arcee looks like she'll be good... in car mode. The robot mode looks ok without the "hoverboard" attached to her back, but honestly I wouldn't have minded some kibble on the legs. Personally, the feet are my biggest problem with the figure. Those 5mm port heels are really weird looking. I'll probably still buy her though, damn my impulse buying habits :BANG_HEAD:

Maybe it's just me, but does it seem like Earthrise distribution is whacked? I know the pandemic has to have had some effect on it, though I remember Hasbro assuring people that there would only be minimal delays. But the year is more than half over, and we haven't even seen Wave 2 ANYWHERE yet. At this rate, Wave 4 will appear at this time next year.

The more I see of ER Arcee, the flimsier and more shell-ish it appears. People who have the Thrilling 30s version may not need this one....

If only Floro Dery hadn't made Arcee's robot mode design a "Princess Leia robot Barbie doll" to begin with.
