    very nice, enjoy the black in the torso to break up the white and the pink. are the eyes light piped or painted? looking forward to getting this head eventually.

    If he got them in the Frosted Ultra Detail, I suppose it could be possible. Would require a spacing up top or behind her head to allow light to flow in though.

    This looks to be the standard or higher-detailed material.

    :drool Fantastic repaint into a G1 Arcee! :thumb 

    Interesting how she's an almost all-white cycle... but then the bot mode is unquestionably her G1 deco.

    That's a beautiful interpretation executed superbly. What paints did you use? Also, sidebar, but would that head work on an Animated Arcee?

    Beauty. It looks fantastic.



    That was an interesting choice, it makes it look like its sporting a bikini.

    Looks great! I'd like a G1 head for the NYCC Arcee.

    That new head goes a long way in this figure. The painting is very nice as well.

    It should work with some minor mods. Animated Arcee has a HUGE noggin so plenty of space there. May look a tad small though but I think it should work ok.

    Damn. That kit + paint job arguably makes this arcee look better than the $100 3rd party one. I'm impressed. This is a beautiful upgrade to the base toy.

    Thanks AP. I may order one and see what I can do. Worst case scenario, I'll just try my hand at this masterpiece.

    Excuse me for asking this but havent transformed RID Arcee since I bought her and probably wont do it again. :(  but her arms are suppose to be that visible in bike mode? o_O 

    Leaving that aside I gotta say that this is a GORGEOUS repaint and modification! that head sure works with RID ARcee's body. And the colors are so much nicely balanced that the NYCC G1 FE Arcee! I completely love your custom! :D

    looks good. i think the boots need some pink detail though just on the feet since g1 arcee did have pink feet. or even use a gundam marker to bring our some of the details. that could do even better.

    in alt mode it resembles Energon Arcee.
