Looks like she has wings!

Oh, man. Pretty happy I secured a FE. Much better fig, IMO. Not digging the faux wings and she's a bit shorter. Might change my mind after more pics, though. Not enough female TF's around!

O_O

Wow...that's terrible. If Redbull gives you wings, then Arcee has a direct line from the factory.

That backpack is horrible.

First Edition wins. Dang.

Not bad, i'm sure this fixes a lot of problems people had with the FE. But I for one feel the FE's small problems are a fair sacrifice for a more detailed and... exciting? figure.

I have the FE, and I think the RID looks better. Will be getting it

I can't believe people are saying the FE is better. Sure, the RiD one has wings, but are you telling me you can just completely look past all that bulk? If the FE Arcee is a female transformer, I'm Brad Pitt.

I'll get one on;y cause I love Arcee. This figure has a nice Face in robot mode but overall FE was much better. In Alt mode it looks nice, but i'll need it in hand to be sure. Arcee is the bot and Hasbro needs to make Her perfect. :BOT:

Arcee has wings on the show FYI

This new one looks better in scale..
just it feels a little unsatisfied with color and wings lacking detailed. I will likely skip this one, and hope for a 3rd mold which address the issues.
(Note: I have a FE Arcee.)

I can't see how people are saying the FE is better, it really isn't.

RID has:
-Better scale
-Better screen accuracy (The wings, while smaller in the show are meant to be there)
-a face that isn't horrifying

FE has:
-both swords, rather then one

Seriously, the RID looks SO much better, I can't see how people could possibly be saying the FE is better. The FE is one ugly figure.

It's a reflex to say FE is better

Haha, keep dreamin bud. If anything, its a relfex to say PRID is better, since FE is now discontinued and more expensive. :P

Yeah, RID is soooo much better across the board. That's why I spent 60 bucks for an FE Optimus and am contemplating on spending 80+ on a Bulkhead because they suck so much.

And you probably don't want to spend another 30 or whatever dollars for a deluxe in addition to that. DUH. :DANCE:
I honestly think they're both pretty close in regards to the awesome factor. One just has more of something, and the other more of the other thing. I feel the PRID version is closer to looking like a toy, where as the FE is closer to looking like a collectable toy. But I won't say anything more coz I don't want to bum out the ones who genuinely like this version better. S'all good.

Your sig = :michaelbay:

Seriously, that's one of the coolest things I've seen. I love both, but that's just awesome. :D

Back on topic, the wings (minus the size) are show accurate. The back pack, is ridiculous.

The body parts on the FE can be painted to look more like the show.

The FE wins for me. The wings aren't accurate, but she has little to no back pack compared to the PRID version, plus she just needs a little paint. She could use a pistol that's show accurate, but I can't complain.

ive got all the FE figures and the current wave of PRID and tbh since i didnt pay secondary market for any (except £35 for soundwave), i honestly dont have the hatred/resentment of PRID that most people seem to have. I love this Arcee!

The PRID Arcee is much more accurate and the figures are well scaled to each other. the quality of the model is a result of the complexity of the transformation more than anything (hasbro have done this to appeal to their core audience, which isnt complexity loving collectors) and it IS more loyal to her show design despite its simplicity (the arms and the chest are much more accurate). I can tolerate the wings

I sick of this trend for slagging off PRID comparing it to FE, the FE line came and went (too soon i grant you), its a secondary market item (unless you buy takara versions, which ARENT hard to find) and this is what we have now. Its not the same line and it sure as hell isnt masterpiece! And in the big scheme of things, will you even give a crap about these things a year or two from now when several dozen more toys will have come and gone? People who dont own these figures, with all due respect, have waited 3 months before trying to pick them up. I respect that people want to go into local shops to buy them (i think thats a bit unrealistic, but then im British and we survive on online sellers for a lot of our figs), but if you sat on your hands for 3 MONTHS then you lost out on this line (plenty of ebay sellers ive seen do the deluxe figures at less than £10 over the £14 rrp, i refuse to believe there arent americans doing the same), i wish people would just get over it. Slag off the design if you feel that strongly, but the FE is better argument is just tired and pointless. And for the record, all those individual scalpers (that arent shops) that are asking stupid prices are mostly fans like us.

Mindvvipe is right, FE is a collector line, PRID is a toyline. Comparing the two is just a waste of time, she will fit in with the line of figures we're going to be getting

sorry to rant
