    I've been wanting to do a non-bike Arcee for a while now but haven't found a feminine enough mold for it to work. But looking at movie 08 Camaro Bumblebee I saw alot of feminine features. Still it wasn't feminine enough so I had to make some modifications to make the mold more feminine looking.

    Modifications I made:
    1. cut off tab on the side front fenders to allow it to rotate all the way up in bot mode. This made the chest more narrow (therefore more feminine I think).
    2. Narrowed the hip joints
    3. Cut a tab in the side back fenders to allow it to rotate more and this allowed the leg to be straightened out more making the leg longer and more slim looking.
    4. Removed Bumblebee's "toes" and attached Deluxe Movie Arcee's high heel boots. Again, to give her more length in the leg. She is now about 3 cm taller than Bumblebee.
    5. Replaced BB's head with a Hydrospaned Energon Arcee's head.
    6. The guns are "sawed off" Classics Astrotrain's rifle (and these can be placed in between the legs in car mode like Bumblebee's gun)

    BTW, I don't like pink stripes or pink anything (although the license plate is) in car mode. It looks plain but I prefer that than pink stripes. I think there is enough pink in bot mode.

    Looks kinda cool but i think the 77 Camaro mold makes a more feminine arcee with a few mods.

    What do you mean when you say "Hydrospaned" anyway?

    Hydrospan is a substance that allows you to make an object bigger. They also have Hydroshrink to make an object smaller.

    http://www.industrialpolymers.com/water_abs_expanding_urethanes.html

    As for the 77 Camaro, I think the only thing more feminine about it vs the 08 mold is the crotch/waist. It's thinnner and more "bikini" like. Also a chest mod would be difficult on it and the feet are way too big. It would be nearly impossible to mod that (feet) to make it smaller because it's basically the rear bumper


    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Nice. I was wondering what you did to the head to make it bigger when I looked at the pics. Hydrospan, eh? Good job.

    I also prefer the idea of a Classic Camaro Arcee, but this works pretty well.

    It's interesting... some of the tweaking of the mold you did to get the Arcee form is very similar to some stuff I just did this week after getting my Cliffjumper repaint. I managed to get a pretty decent alternate transformation out of the Concept Camaro (different enough to make a decent Sideswipe/Sunstreaker pair). I should take some pics soon.

    Good job on the Astrotrain guns too. I wish I had enough of those kicking around to spare. :)

    Excellent! Why is it I always get the urge to crank out whatever it is you do? That's right, probably due to the great work you do.

    Keep it up, man!

    Excellent work! That's much better than the official one. I'm not about to kill my CCBB and Arcee to make one though... :(
