    I thought that purple one was an exclusive somewhere... I don't know. I don't plan on buying it either way.

    The purple Arcee was released via Target here in a 2-pack, but most online retailers until now still continue to say that it is the Japanese Elita-1 as well.

    This version was revealed at C3X Chara Hobby. We've known that it was going to be a purple Chromia instead of a pink Arcee since late August.

    Well he's not the only one who's never seen or heard of this, missed the last meeting I guess :p  The Target 2pack, I dont think can be called purple. If this one is easy to get a hold of (as easy as a asian market toy can be) I'll get one just as a place holder, in case they never do the figure the right way.

    Regardless, these are still new images of the toy, and the first official images of the toy itself.

    Huh. That looks better then the black and gold repaint of Chromia.

    I know, I know. I was complaining as well when I first saw that Elita is a repaint of Chromia. But thinking again all this time, I got over it. Chromia was the better of the two bike sister moulds anyway. Besides, this repaint looks a lot better with the purple rather then black and purple, and gold.

    Wish this was the version that came out in the US. Aw well. Doesn't seem like there's much of a combined mode anyway.

    Can someone explain why the mold is the wrong one for the third part of the trio? Do they combine properly if a 2nd Arcee mold is used? Was there some info at some point that the third mold would be new? I thought it was always supposed to be a repaint. In the movie, the purple bike isn't identical to the red one.

    So is the Purple Twin pack Hasbro one identical or not to the Takara one I can't find a basis for comparison between the two.

    I hope that Hasbro have the will to make a 3rd bike that is either a mirror flip of Chromia with a new weapon arm & fairing or that is brand new mould as they might as well use one of their Movie 3 Deluxe slots to complete the sisters accurately

    These are the first official photos of such (as in publicity photos and not those of a convention). But we did know of the change some time ago.

    Hrmm, didn't we see a purple Arcee on display at a Tokyo toy show a few months? I'm positive we saw one.

    Disappointed at the mold change. But it makes sense.

    Yeah... I'm just stating that the original post was that Elita-1 was a purple Chromia was unknown when in fact it was. So yeah...

    The Target 2-pack "Arcee" is a bright pink and gold version of the Arcee mold. Pics of that toy are originally what were shown for Takara's AA release. Since the C3X show, it would seem that this (purple version of the Chromia mold) is what Takara will release, and that the pink Arcee won't come out over there.

    Hasbro's Elita-1 is also the Chromia mold, but in a dark metallic pink, rather than purple. I'm guessing that was done to refer back to the Elita-1 from the first movie, the Target-exclusive redeco of Energon Arcee.

    Barring a remold/new mold, I would've preferred the Arcee mold in the AA Elita-1 color scheme to represent the third sister. I'd still like to get this toy, but don't really want to spend $30+ on it.
