He took to twitter for some fantastic photos and a review for the next release in the well recieved Deluxe line up.

MrBlack wrote:The figure looks the part from the show. She can hold Maccadam's hammer, although the grip is a little loose.

Articulation is what you would expe t from a Deluxe, although the ankle tilts are SUPER tight. The heel spurs help to balance the figure well, which is good, because...

*sigh*

I guess it could be worse. It does have a bit of an insect body look to it, which is kind of cool.

Compared to her sisters, she stands up well. Less, um, curvy than Generations Arcee, but not as buff as TR Arcee. A slim, athletic look.

Some backpack shots with other female bots.

Get it together, Hasbro.

Transformation is pretty good, although getting the hood and windscreen lined up can be a pain. Love the tiny, body car mode!

Really, what did you expect?

Some comparison shots with her sisters. More shellformer-y than Gen Arcee, but less egregious than the Earthrise version.

Bottom line is that it's not a perfect figure, but it's fun and incredibly cute. I'd definitely go for this over Earthrise Arcee unless you're looking for a more G1 look.

Mainly in this for Maccadam, but hey, it’s another addition to my Cyberverse collection so I’m not particularly upset. Wish there was a second wave of Deluxes with a real Starscream... :(

That Arcee do suffer from backpack syndrome, but seems to be less heavy than ER. She look awesome enough and her vehicle mode is totally original for a Arcee. Appart the backpack, she have the same fault as the ER version, meaning her face is the same color as her helmet. Unfortunate.

Regardless of her flaws (and the ER), I'm looking forward getting both of them in my collection.

That Cyberverse Arcee looks alright.

MrBlack, Titans Return Arcee might look less buff if you popped the shoulder struts in properly :P

I know everyone says TR Arcee is just another Blurr retool but I think it is the best one available and wish it were easier for others to get. I say that as someone who owns the T30 figure which feels... spindly? Like it could break if I let my god kids hold it. TR Arcee's head is a great rendition of her face while looking more like a transformer than a fembot. The partsforming, which I have no problem with, gives her a functional shield that looks pretty cool. The only way to make it better would have been to include a sword that sheathes into the shield piece since the accessories with the T30 mold are not 5mm compatible.

Well, for me TR Arcee is on the same level as Binaltech Arcee.

"IT'S MA'AM!" :lol:

I find TR Arcee horrible but I regret having missed out on her. She would pair marvelously well with my Binaltech Arcee. Maybe I'll luck on a deal one day...

Oh, that's hardly fair Kanrabat. TR Arcee is made from the most slender TR mold (one that even basically has high heels because of the foot design), was retooled to have more slender upper arms, and was allowed to have Arcee's actual face and be pink. And hey, it makes Headmaster Arcee (supported by canon before the Legends comic) a reality.

1. I've had T30 Arcee for 5 years, played with her a lot, taken her traveling with me, and the only thing that broke was one of the thumbs (and that was probably due to someone else smushing my bag in the car, considering that was in the first year I had her and the other one is holding up just fine).
2. You're actually dead wrong about the T30 accessories not being 5mm compatible; I've stuck the swords and guns into 5mm fistholes just fine.

Well, she's not as "MA'AM" as the Binaltech one, but she's still "MA'AM" nonetheless. Abby-like look aside, the advantage is that she's a proper transformers instead of being just a shellformer like most fembots are.

Oh, wow, that backpack. Yikes.

Hasbro. Guys. It's okay to integrate car parts into Arcee's robot mold. She can have car shins or car part arms. Even Hot Rod has car parts on his shins most of the time.

It's especially annoying when, unlike T30 Arcee, this Arcee has big square legs and big square forearms ideal for integration. Hasbro simply took the easy way out and made one of the purest shellformers we've seen since Age of Extinction.

We got quite a bit of big Transformers Cyberverse news all at once. Firstly, for those who liked the deluxes Hasbro has been releasing, we seem to have more coming. There are listings on Walmart for a deluxe Starscream, Prowl and Soundwave. Here are the links to those listings, which fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade sent our way:

Deluxe Starscream
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-hasbro-Tra-Cyberverse-Deluxe-Starscream/102569610

Deluxe Prowl
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-hasbro-Tra-Cyberverse-Deluxe-Prowl/985823083

Deluxe Soundwave
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Transformers-hasbro-Tra-Cyberverse-Deluxe-Soundwave/859888439

But that is not all. We also have new product images. We have some for the upcoming One Step Cybertronian Megatron and Ratchet as well as Ultimate Iaconus. It seems Iaconus shares some engineering with Ultimate Shockwave since the alt mode is him on all fours as well. However, while Shockwave was a tank, here Iaconus is ... something else? It's not clear. You'll let us know what you think that alt mode is.

*looks at Iaconus alt mode, imagine manager meeting with designer*
Manager: So what does this one turn into?
*points at Iaconus*
Designer: Oh he's great! He turns into a city!
Manager: hmmm
Designer: problem?
Manager: a few, do you know how much we're going to sell him for?
Designer: Err
Manager: We also sell Titan Class toys for about $180, they turn into cities. We would people buy them if they can get this guy for 80% less?
Designer: I don't think that's how the fans are going to look at this...
Manager: No we can't have a city at this price. We'll do this instead.
*manhandles prototype*
Designer: but...
Manager: There we go.
*Puts toy down*
Designer: but...
Manager: Stick a few rocket boosters on there and he can be a spaceship or a tank. Ohh there's his gimmick, he becomes whatever the child wants! I'll get marketing on it right now!
*manager leaves*
Designer: but...

Huh? :???:

*enlarges photo for a closer look*

Oh. OOOH! It's a starship.

That's a very bad publicity photo. We're seeing the ship from behind with a view of the thrusters in the back.

One of the oddest alt modes yet...'assume the position!'

Maybe they just gave up on his design when season 3 started to go down hill.

Dunno. That's the first pic we've seen of it, AFAIK. They haven't shown us what the front end looks like.
