    am i the only one who beleives that due to her popularity and traits, transformers prime arcee will now be the template for arcees in future continuities, much like movie bumblebee and, to a lesser extent, ironhide.

    i beleive that future arcees will share her strong and sassy personality, motorcycle alt. mode, and new color scheme.

    i like this and am looking forwards to it

    I suspect her personality will from now on draw upon this Arcee but I expect most of them to be pink and have a G1-ish head.

    A carbon copy? Probably not.

    A basic character/design template? Probably.

    It's funny. Prime Arcee has actually become the first Arcee I think of.
    I think she's more Arcee to me than G1 Arcee, if that makes any sense.
    Not a bad thing in my opinion. I like the character.
    Unlike the whole "Bumblebee can't talk" thing. I wish that would just go away.

    I hope the pink and white colors are left in the past and black and blue tour carries on long into the future.

    I agree. Although I'm sure the G1 one will still be referenced a lot all the same. Maybe we'll see some combinations in the future, like how Ratchet and Ironhide have combined and taken in elements from Animated, movie, and G1 all together.


    However, the two Arcees are fairly different and that causes me to dislike that they're using amalgamated characters for the Hall of Fame - I think Prime Arcee is pretty cool but DO NOT think the G1 is a very interesting character. Her appearance and voice is fine, it's just that too often she's just the girl, even more so in Headmasters. I almost feel like the G1 character is getting a free ride here - I don't see Arcee getting nominated into the HoF so readily if Prime had never happened.

    she's the best female role model Transformers has had yet, so I see that as a good thing

    Yeah, G1 Cee is pretty much gone. And nothing of value was lost.

    I like the new Arcee, and also agree that she should be the template for any future versions of the character. Sumalee Montano has done an awesome job of giving life and emotion to Arcee's character, and made it totally realistic.

    I think it's a good thing that Arcee has changed. I really like this template of the character. She's got her share of good and bad traits. And it does;t hurt that she knows how to kick some tailpipe.

    Oh absolutely. Miss Montano has done a simply fantastic job. When the show first started I was a little bummed that Susan wasn't doing the voice. But now I'm glad. Susan does a definitive Arcee but Sumalee is just a great voice actress and really fleshes out Arcee.

    I hope it won't be more MY PARTNERS ARE DEAAAAAD

    I probably can't care less. She's just a typical Autobot warrior except with femininity and angst thrown in.

    100% this!:) 

    I love Prime Arcee. G1 Arcee made me embarrassed to be a girl.

    TFP Arcee really should have been Chromia.

    I hope we see more development and diversity in the character than just the Prime incarnation.

    Agreed. I hope Prime Arcee acts as the basis as in all future incarnations will draw inspiration by the attempt at a deeper, more focused-on character rather than just completely retreading her story and design.

    I like prime arcee because she's a female character that isn't all about being the love interest of someone.
