I am seriously thinking about getting this figure. Pretty nice model. Besides a few weird parts, it's still pretty cool. Thanks for the review!! :D

From someone with the username of Pax Cybertronia, she looks very good.


She looks great! So glad Hasbro gave her the attention she deserves. Also very glad I didnt go down the Impossible Toys/iGear route, this looks far superior. Now hurry up Kapow and get her sent!

With the recent reveal of Takara's version of Arcee, I have decided to forgo getting Hasbro's in favor of waiting for Takara's super show-accurate Arcee.

Boy after seeing the paint differences between the Hasbro and the Takara one, I can not for the life of me even stomach looking at the Hasbro one. Too much black. Takara one completely show accurate. I'll take Takara.. I'm actually getting real tired of Hasbro's paint apps. They were getting better for a while, but it seems that they don't care or know proper paint schemes for these characters anymore.

Meh i like the black, after years of collecting bionicle, i hate the color grey Takara's using on Arcee, cartoon accurate or not. For those who don't know, in the later years of bionicle toys,Lego used to like to use that color of grey allot .

Now Hasbro gives you all an official classics Arcee at less than ¼ the price and you expect a miracle of engineering ?

You all should be happy you finally got an Arcee that’s both a car and cartoon accurate pink. I personally like it and could care less about the back kibble. I pose my figures facing forward not turned around.


Post of the day, honestly this is virtually the iGear version for 1/4 of the price and people are complaining? No wonder Hasbro do half arsed molds when they get complaints about the ones they actually get right.

not a very nice picture mind you, but the basics of their paint scheme is there. and its spot on!

after watching the video, i feel much better about the mold, especially the car mode. and even though the takara one is superior, ill get both. ive been doing that a lot lately...

Thanks

Not sure I like it considering it will be insanley priced as all Takara stuff is, I'll stick with the Hasbro one, actually quite like the black on her helps to break up the colour scheme the Takara one looks a little incipid.

I like the black as well. I'll probably have to order her online unfortunately. Generations are a complete non entity in my neck if the woods. AOE stuff is severely clogging up the shelves.
The back pack isn't so gnarly. I'd have liked it to collapse a little more but that would mean more unsightly seems in alt mode.

Some side to side ankle tilt would have been spectacular but whatever. She's a great lookin figure

I like the black on the Hasbro one, it helps to break up the pink. Hope Kapow Toys get her in stock soon, after 28 years of waiting for a G1 Arcee then I'm very eager to find out if she's been worth the wait. Looks great.

Have you checked BBTS? Takara ones are only 30 dollars. The way the dollar is continuing to decrease in value, our Hasbro ones will only go up in price. For 15 more dollars you get a superior product that you'll be happier with and have saved an economic cost of post-market price-gouging by scalpers later. I kind of wish now that I had done the same with a lot of the Henkei classics figures back in the day now. Thankfully an ex girlfriend got me the Henkei Optimus Prime voyager mold. Love love love that toy. But yeah, Chromia and Windblade also look a lot better. Same mold, I just don't want to have to learn to paint them myself, and that's worth 15 dollars to me. I can't wait to see Takara's Jhiaxus. Hopefully it's the more accurate deco.

I personally don't quite understand the negativity that seems to be following this figure either. It's Arcee, it Transforms, and is unashamed to be pink! FINALLY!

Agreed. This is perfect. I do like Delicate Warrior (mainly because she looks so cute) but this is basically a perfect Arcee. If I didn't have my TFA Arcee I'd go for this.

I wonder if that "backpack" can be taken off without making a mess of things. I don't have any particular disliking for it, but it does make her look bulky. I wouldn't mind having an untouched as-Hasbro-made-it figure (so she can be transformed at leisure) and a figure for taking pictures with (because that bulky backpack seems like it might limit things, as far as composition goes).

Guess I'll get one and see what I can do picture wise first xD
