    One thing I think that has completely gone un-noticed is that how well they have wrote Arcee into the new series.

    I am not the biggest kurtzman and orci fan but Arcee is is actually one of the most interesting characters in a long while. Her an bulkhead have history with out having to spell it out every episode. Has anyone else noticed this as it is the reason I watch show with the release of every episode.

    Well just trying to give credit where it is due but even for a staunch G1 fan as i am this shoe is becoming a pleasant surprise.

    Now if only i could figure my way on as a VA talent :)

    She's pretty great. But I wouldn't call her my FAVORITE Prime character. (Knockout takes that one)


    She's my 3 favorite character.

    Unnoticed? People have been singing Arcee's praise since the premiere aired.

    She's very generic to be honest. The best Arcee ever, but hardly a hard thing to do, she's not interesting.

    Not my favorite character, but she's been pretty good so far. She was pretty involved in Darkness Rising, but hasn't done much since then. Which isn't a bad thing, but eventually she's going to need to do more than insult Bulkhead.

    I dunno. I'd be pretty happy to watch an entire episode of her making fun of Bulkhead.

    Arcee is my favorite Prime character so far.... I love her, which surprises me, as I've never been much of a fan of the female TFs (just haven't thought they've been that well written and portrayed).

    It was a pleasant surprise when I first watched the show and realized she was my favorite.

    Yeah, since my first post, i've warmed up to her. She's awfuly great. And I AM going to get her toy. (I'm not getting any other prime toy besides her and Starscream, and if Breakdown and Knockout get any) But I must say, she needs a rival.

    Hardly. She´s the "ought-Girl" kind of bot. Wich makes a lot more interesting than a damsel in distress.

    By far the best take on Arcee.

    It also helps that Sumalee Montano is hot.

    great charecter, a lot of heart, one of the best designs and a great voice helps too.

    Sadly she isn't the fav that goes to Starscream, Ratchet and Knockout

    Being more interesting than not-interesting-at-all is hardly a feat to be proud of.

    I think she is more interesting than that by far.

    She is a character that im not sure if its the VA talent or not but she is strong with out being overly done and she is not fragile yet she has her breaking point.

    She is like a combination of conflicts and they have written her consistently from episode to episode. You just get this feeling she has seen alot of things that have jaded her badly but she remains kinda normal.

    Definately my favorite character of the series (definately buy her a can of oil lol!) as she sure is hell of a lot better than this super boring optimus prime we got.

    Primes in my opinion where always at their best when emotion was most evident and passionate about doing the right thing for the right reason. This prime is very cold and just kinda a by the book guy. So if you want to talk generic that is generic ... pretty much like the movie prime except with out face ripping, so far!

    Being better than Movie Narrator Prime isn't amazing either.

    I have no idea of where you're getting all that "interest" out of. All she does is look edgy and make a joke outta Bulkhead so far. Arcee, Optimus and Bumblebee all need more development soon and badly because Bulkhead and Ratchet are the only ones that we truly know so far. Or maybe we do know Optimus too? Can't tell from his bland personality.

    Yeah, I find Prime prime to be more blander than RiD Optimus Prime minus the Burning Justice stuff.

    I really like Arcee. I think she's a great character and can't wait to see more of her. :)

    We don't know Arcee? Did you watch the miniseries at all?
