    Is anyone talented enough to make a new head for TFTM Arcee? That head just awful.

    I thought I would be able to overlook it and took a chance on the figure anyway but I just can't stand it...

    Is anything in the works?

    I saw one done that looked really cool and it actuall looks like a female bot face (as opposed to the can-opener that Hasbro supplied, lol). Cant remember who did it but you might want to run a search... Its here sumwhere -n

    What's wrong with her current head? It looks just fine. Though I like the look of the above poster's, the mouth looks terrible, but the eyes are epic win!

    The problem being that that pretty head is just a photoshopped version of the regular head. I'm actually thinking about messing with her deluxe head myself, after I've finished making the scout Arcee more movie-accurate. If it turns out well enough, I'll see if I can't duplicate the look - but you'll be on your own for paint.

    I was thinking of updating the fembots looks to match the movie design and have them fit on Arcee. If some one talented with the pencil would like to draw up some concept female head designs, I can do some wax sculpts of them for casting. For those who do not know my work, you can see them here:

    And for the record, I like the current Arcee head sculpt, it just the paint job that made it suffer. Its amassing what a little bit of paint can do.

    Yeah, it's not the head, it's the paint. Arcee has a more humanoid face than any other film design, they just painted it to look like a bird-beak.

    Ditto! I did this simple repaint to my own Arcee and it does make a huge difference. It's interesting that even the design sketches for Movie Arcee make her look (and I mean EXACTLY!) like Nien Nunb from Return of the Jedi, but in the case of the actual toy mold, it's really just the paint that conveys this effect. The face is remarkably humanoid.
