    NOW ON EBAY!!!

    I guess I never had a thread for her, but I did a new Photo shoot prior to putting her up on eBay

    She's an older custom of mine , just letting someone else have achance to own since she doesn't fit the rest of my collection.

    Hey that's surprisingly nice. I say surprisingly cos I usually hate G1 colors stuck on movie designs and the 2007 Arcee figure is one of my absolute favorite Transformer figures (I own the regular purple one and the japanese black version and it's by far and away my fave TF fembot figure) and I hated the pink/white redeco that was available at some festival but this one is far better than that. The colors are so much better applied and it's turned it into a G1 redeco I'd actually quite happily have up on my TF shelf along with my other two 2007 Arcee's if only my income wasn't so low that I always get outbid on nice looking customs.

    Good work :)

    Looks amazing. The colour scheme harkens back to her Binaltech form perfectly.
    The only thing I don't like about the mold is the head sculpt. The amount of bang's she has in the front does not look right

    Nice!

    Did you alter the face at all, aside from the paint?

    :(  hope you don't change too much. She's got by far one of the most interesting and cool head sculpts of any TF figure in my opinion.

    I would've loved to have seen this as the ROTF Arcee; make her Mikaela's guardian, like Sam has BB.

    I mean really, they totally passed the obvious. They wanted Arcee. Mikaela is known for motorcycles. DUHRHRHRHRH. And she should've looked just like this.

    Mikaela doesn't seem like a pink motorcycle girl. I don't think pink works at all for a real motorcycle but it's fine here as a quality G1 redeco of a movie toy mold. I do still prefer the actual toy's original colors (though obviously a custom paintjob of making everything look metal would improve the original toy like it does all figures)

    that's cool. got a pretty head and a badass head. Does the 2009 head fit normally or did you have to cut or modify it in some way?

    It fits, but it was loose , so I put some glue on it to fill in the space, now it fits fine.
