Damn Duque, you beat me to it.

Remember when Hasbro photoshoped toys to look better than the actual product?

Im actually suprised by how much I like this.

1. The legs look like the first edition (which were the highlight of that figure IMO).
2. Her robo-boobies dont look awkward
3. IMO her head looks WAYY more accurate
4. Her shoulders are freed up and more accessible
5. I dont see any awkward handle bars from a first glance.
6. GIANT FUCKING GUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN


Im sure people wont agree with my opinion on it, but I think I might like this more than the FE.

That's a big gun, although it looks like it can disassemble and maybe attach to her arms?

My thoughts exactly.

So far my RID Want List (In this order):
Wheeljack
Powerizer Megatron
Soundwave
Vehicon
Arcee

Everything else so far is poopy imo. Gonna wait for terrorcon cliff to get that mold, hopefully weaponizer optimus will be good.

If this Arcee is a lot smaller than the FE, then this figure is an instant win.

This is pretty good, I'm impressed. Not enough to want it over the FE version, but it's still good. It's fairly accurate and the overall proportions are great.

At first glance the legs look identical to the FE, but it's actually a different transformation scheme, you can see her toes hinge sideways as opposed to the FE where the collapse backwards into the legs. The forearms are also very different. I even like the big gun this time around, although I have no idea where that's supposed to go in bike mode, lol...

That actually looks better than the FE Arcee. My only complaint is she still doesn't have her guns from the cartoon, those things are awesome.

I like it.

Not sure if I like it more till I have it in hand, but I'll be getting this one.

A smaller size will work well for this character, so if that is the case it'll be a plus.

It still does not excuse the FE debacle, but at least this and Vehicon seem to be as good or better than their FE molds.

Nearly every issue I had with the FE Arcee seems to have been solved with this figure. And it's even more show-accurate. :D

You know what, HUGE improvement over the first edition. This looks like the better Arcee.

I have to admit defeat. That might actually be better than FE Arcee. Definitely a nicer face, definitely a nicer female form, much like the in show model and she seems to have a better range of motion.

On the other hand, the gun is ridiculous, and the second blade missing is kind of a deal breaker. Plus she's a big cheat on many things. The legs, chest and head. Looks to be a little too simplified in spots.

For comparison's sake:

bike mode aside, RID is a LOT more screen accurate (sans gun)

Really nice. The difference between RID and FE version really makes me want to get another one. So what am I gonna do when I have two Arcee? :D

Regarding the gun... well, i guess size does matter for her...

Another site had her with matching blades so don't rule it out yet.

You can see that the wheels are fully round also, as opposed to splitting in half. My main worry right now is back kibble...it looks like the one wheel does lay flat on her back, but we really can't see what else is back there with these camera angles.

Hmm. That comparison photo has me rethinking my stance. I might go ahead and buy this one. Dang it.

meh, we'll see. i like the legs, head, and chestal section, the forearms r good too, but dthe guns kinda weird and her back looks just as bulky as the FE, if not more so. I already have the FE so we'll see

No offense intended, but I snorted hot chocolate out of my nose when I read this.

Glad I didn't bend over backward to get a blue FE. Besides making my pink one even more of a separate character, this seems to improve on the toy in almost every way (admittedly, she had one of the weaker toys to start). The sculpted body looks so much better. There's always a fine line between better proportions and cheating us. while it is your typical "hide the kibble" beauty shot, the wheel suggests it might get out of the way better.

Speaking of beauty shot, I can't tell what they transformed wrong on her. Did they... transform her right? I've only heard legends of this occurance.

i still want a figure to use as chroma so i guess ill be stuck with one of this one, does look better than the first edition so at least theres that. Dont like the gun though, to much like the stupid mechtech crap.
