    I wish they had used the Chromedome mold instead of a badly done, yet another, Blurr remold. Might pick one up for the Magnus head but this is a bad Arced.

    Based on Arcee's packaging, which used the Intelligence symbol, and Trypticon's cereal poster referring to his power as "Ultimate Intelligence Boost", I'm guessing that was where you would have seen them.

    This again? Chromedome looks even less like Arcee than Blurr. Unless you're arguing in favor of the legendary pink Chromedome repaint, in which case what's the point?

    So, new chest and a remolded car front would be "less" like Arcee then "this" crap? Just like with Nautical, this mold doesn't fit Arcee. What was the point of "this" Arcee?

    you know what's so great about this line?
    you can grab an extra breakaway and some pink paint, and your blurcee becomes chromedomeclone arcee.

    i'll probably be sticking ultra magnus in takara brainstorm's extra vehicle, and have him occasionally trade places with voyager optimus.
    i'm happy with arcee being based on blur, while that mold is the most recycled it does fit her best.

    Without the remolded car front and a remolded chest that is utterly pointless and would as bad as this Arcee is.

    Even with a new chest and car front, I do not see how Chromedome would make a better Arcee. I find the overall narrower frame of the Blurr mold to be much more suited for a female body type compared to Chromedome's broader shoulders and general chunkiness.

    Just more people wishing for the G1 pink Chromedome...which was a terrible idea to begin with. Doing it now doesn't make it less so...

    Is this going to be release at regular retail as well down the line, or is this figure exclusively for Hascon? Id like to know because I really want a figure of Arcee in my collection and I didnt like the Generations one

    While I agree that it might be unwise to wait, I repeat that this was the only TF HasCon exclusive that was proclaimed to be "early access" (whatever that means), yet other HasCon exclusives are going up on HasbroToyShop.

    A Hot Rod remold could have been even better.

    Some of the Hascon exclusive are pretty interesting. I'd be tempted to invest in a couple of things, but I'm note sure if they ship outside the US and Canada. Anyone have any experience ordering from Hasbro?

    HTS says they don't ship outside north America at all, and that some items won't even be sent to Canada.
