    So, the trailer showed us one thing (well, besides the fact the Cyclone of Death makes one hell of a cool moneyshot), it's that Arcee has three unicycle bot modes, on the order of the toy that we've seen.

    This confuses me. Previously, we had thought that Arcee was a Tricon, basically one robot with 3 vehicle modes. THat is obviously not the case. So, what then is she? I see three options.

    1) Arcee is one of three 'sisters' who combine to form a larger bot.

    2) Arcee is the name of the combined form of three seperate Femmebots.

    3) Arcee is on Conciousness spread over three bodies.

    Let's check out what we've got on all of them.

    3 would be the one that fits best with the rumors we've heard, but something makes me doubt it. First off, the bikettes chasing the Audi did not seem to move in sync, which I would imagine if Bay were doing that option, he'd be really big on. 2 seconds of footage is not a lot to go on, but to me it looked like they were all moving individually.

    2 doesn't make sense to me simply because Arcee is already an individual established character in the movieverse. I doubt they would make make her the name of a combinor.

    1 seems the most likely, but that leaves us with the question of 'Whos the combined form then?' We have yet to have a femmebot combinor in Transformers, so there's no presidence. Perhaps Arcee is the central bot, and dominates (insert your own joke here) the personality of the combined form?

    So, what do you guys think?

    i think that number 2 is the most accurate of this theories.

    Just for a Size issues i think.. a robo-bike will be human-sized.
    Maybe they want something larger for her. So, robo-bike X3 - you had a bumblebee's robot size hehe.

    I never actually noticed she was in the trailer until this thread was written. However, Arcee is in no way a 'concrete set' movie character. The character in Reign of Starscream was based on a movie toy and a character dropped from the movie. As we know from Orci not even being aware of the comics, the writers aren't bothered about IDW's stories. From what I'm aware of what has been leaked, Arcee is made of three motor bikes, like G1 Reflector, all of which possess one conciousness.

    I'm betting she's number 3 on your list.

    I would go with your first theory !! Like you said she is "an individual Character" !! We have to remember we got 20 TFs on each side

    the number of known autobots :

    Prime
    Bumblebee
    Rachet
    Ironhide
    Wheelie
    Sideswipe
    Skids (the green Chevy)
    The Red Chevy
    Jolt (the Chevy Volt)
    Jetfire ( stars as a 'Con firts , he later joins the 'Bots)
    Arcee and her 2 ''Sisters''( Possibly last 2 drones ,like you said ,still a combiner as the Constructicon)

    13 of 20 autobot characters right now , for me, establish. Arcee with 2 Sisters ( or Drones ) add to the number !!!

    I've never seen that pick before, but it doesn't look as though its either transformed right or that is how it is supposed to look, so i imagine they will combine into some kind of form.

    That looks like Thrust from Beast Machines ,cool !!

    But you are right It doesn't look like it Transformes right !!

    What I think is they can walk ,but like in the trailer ,they pursue Barricade on wheels while in Robot mode !! So maybe, they can change their legs ?!:)

    That is how they look in the trailer, so it is transformed correctly.
