    Literally had one fall apart in my hands while transforming.

    Anyone else have a gripe with this figure?

    You created this thread ONLY because I suggested you get Delicate Warrior over in the "Does Hasbro listen to us" thread, didn't you?

    Also, there's at least three 3rd party Arcee figures I know of, so you need to be more specific.

    Unnecessary thread is unnecessary. This is why we have feedback threads.

    Technically this is a review thread, I guess. Someone can move it there.

    I only have the remold of that as Nightbird, but it does have several problems. It's arms are not strong enought to hold themselves up, the feet are so tiny it can't stand, etc. Looks best in poses where she's kicking someone so that they are holding her up!

    As stated above, I suspect this thread was made mostly because I said the following in another thread when he said Hasbro doesn't listen to fans because the closest thing they've made to a G1 Arcee was the NYCC FE Prime repaint:

    Also, this is just an idle thought, but if the arms and legs of Nightbird could be replaced with better versions (I.E. made on shapeways) she'd look pretty good. It would neuter transformation, but Nightbird was never an actual Transformer to begin with.

    It has nothing to do with that.

    I decided to play with the toy as I bought it awhile ago and never tried transforming it.

    This is because I am pissed that a $100 dollar toy just falls apart.



    On TOPIC


    Is the Igear version any better? If so I will just pick that up as a replacement.

    There's your problem. By all accounts, iGear's Delicate Warrior is a far superior figure and more character-accurate.

    My apologies, then, the timing of this thread being created being so soon after I responded to you in the other thread made me think the two were related.


    She's probably your best bet for a good G1 Arcee. A.R.C. is a true piece of crap that couldn't be saved even by some of the most skilled Radicons from what I've heard, and R.C. doesn't turn into a car.

    Delicate Warrior is fantastic, the best iteration of Arcee we'll ever have.

    On the bright side, you could probably just leave your current Valkyrie in vehicle mode and the Delicate Warrior in robot mode for a dual-mode display.

    Stay away from anything made by impossible toys. Everything they've cranked out is shitty and filled with qc issues.

    I know what's the quality like, I was the first to review it. But other than the paint apps being meh and the figure being on the delicate side (look at the size of the arms), I don't see how you could break the figure if you're decently careful.

    But yes, Delicate Warrior is the better G1-ish version of the character to have.

    I dont agree all there Quints are great quality. I got the TRNS-03 Alicon that just came out and the quality is way better then anything Igear has put out even better then current Hasbro stuff. The TRNS-01 Arcee is not good enough quality I agree but dont say everything they made is shitty. All 3rd party toys have issues look at MMC with Shockwave 99% of fans broke it on the first transform but does that make all there stuff shitty? MMC HOS Prime also had issues but people still support them. I am curious what Impossible Toys stuff you own that is so shitty because the stuff I have minus Arcee is really good. My Igear command center would not even go together.....
