    It's kinda been bugging me how almost all the bots have a set of pearly whites except Arcee.

    Girl could use some teeth, not only would it allow her to emote better, it'll also mean she won't looks so damned fish-faced everytime she opened her mouth.

    She does have teeth. Hold on I'll find a screenie.

    EDIT: Hmm. Can't find it. T'was a few nights ago, could've been on 4chan, so it's gone now. She's got little black bars for teeth, they're hard to see though, and I never noticed until the pic.

    I remember that as well. I think they probably only have them on demand, animation-wise.

    How about some teeth AAAND finally deciding if she got black or pink chest detailing? It keeps going away and back!

    I was stunned that no one asked about that at Botcon. I honestly thought someone would bring it up.

    Who cares about that whenIS CLIFFJUMPER DEAAADDD???? CAN YOU TELL US NEXT CHARACTERS??? CAN YOU TELL WHAT HAPPENS SEASON 2??? IS UNICRON IN IT??

    Botcon questions are always sooooo pointless, it's either stuff we already know or stuff we know they won't answer so why ask!?

    "What was it like to work with Chris Latta?"

    "We only wrote Transformers Prime."

    "Is Arcee going to get a classics toy?"

    "How do you keep getting allowed back in?"

    from what I've seen the pink chest seems to be a reflection on the the glass though it could be a graphical glitch

    If Arcee needs teeth, then Optimus needs Peter Cullen's moustache, Bulkhead needs an Afro, and Bumblebee needs a voice.

    I don't think anyone would object to Optimus having a mustache.

    I don't think he needs a crowbar-stache

    "My face will take your face, & no snowball for you Raf!"

    nope, that seems more fitting of the movie version

    Hasbro would then have to shorten it for the toy's US release due to safety reasons.

    Have some of you people still not realized that the Pink/Black chest 'error' thing on Arcee is just a reflection and changes all the time?

    Go outside and look at your car wind sheilds... now walk to a place where the sun is reflecting in it.... Oh my god! It looks different!

    Different being the appropriate term.

    Here is a collage of Arcee from Speed Metal on.

    [​IMG]

    A variety of environments and lighting.

    Now, I agree that these things are intended to be reflective surfaces. Is it possible that the designers are adding lighting to scenes to get this effect, maybe lighting that other models don't reflect - because otherwise this is a pretty big coincidence. Nowhere does she reflect, say, green. Or deep red, or blue or any other non pink colour, and as far as I know, the default light reflected off a surface is not 'pink'.

    Just interesting to compare her from episode to episode. I checked through the episodes, and this seems to be the standard, rather than the exception, which would mean me freeze framing at the exact moment of pink (which I don't have the time nor interest to do).

    In fact, it's only the top right picture (from crisscross) that isn't predominantly pink. This mainly because of the intensity of the MECH lighting, and the shadows. And even then, we have pink highlights.

    I don't even see Arcees windshield chest in the Crisscross pic because it's covered by Airachnids webbing.

    Here, let me help you with that:

    [​IMG]

    I had to mess with the brightness and contrast a little so that they would be more noticeable, but Arcee does indeed have teeth (or "dental plates" as I like to call them, since they're just one solid row on the top and bottom and not individual teeth).
