    So I made the decision to collect Fembots exclusively and wanted to know what are the "best" or what are the "must own" molds. I have checked TF Wiki so I have an idea of how many are out there and I have a good start to my collection but you don't know a TF until you have transformed it at least once.

    If you guys/gals can give me your top 5 or 10 picks that would be greatly appreciated.

    There are a few I want but need to know if they are worth their $150-$400 price range (I'm looking at you Botcon: Arcee, Flamewar, Flareup and Antagony.)

    Thanks everyone!

    Also has Rosanna saved G1 yet? Just curious as I may want to pick her up too.

    Yu might wanna try owning Superlink Ariel (a.k.a Energon Arcee) if those Botcon Repaints are proving to be a killer. Even her Green Paramedic Repaint looks cool enough for a Fembot.

    Highly recommended! :thumbs2:

    You might want to try Thunderblast from the Cybertron line. Has a pretty neat look in both robot mode and boat mode. Plus I'm pretty sure you can pick one up on some place like e-Bay for a fraction of what you'd spend on exclusives.

    The botcon attendee only sets aren't worth it as a starting point. Pick up the general release molds first then decide if you want to get all of them.

    Animated Arcee if you find it at retail else Japanese Animated Arcee

    Energon Arcee -> TFTM Arcee -> TFTM Elita-One -> Superlink Ariel -> Botcon Chromia -> Superlink Paradron Medic -> Botcon Flamewar -> Botcon Flareup.

    TFTM Deluxe Arcee -> TFTM Battle Damage Arcee -> Japan Black Arcee -> Japan Wonderfest G1 Arcee. I like this mold but the head is horrible. Get a black one if you can find it on the cheap.

    ROTF bike sisters - Arcee, Chromia, Elita-One. They do not have the traditional robot form and the combination as far as we know bites. You'll have to use your own opinion on this.

    Cybertron Thunderblast is nice but it's a shellformer. Botcon Elita-One isn't bad either and not too pricey. The japanese white version also exist.

    I'm not a BeastWars person so the spiders don't do anything for me but there's a bunch out there also. Avoid Binaltech Arcee.

    Animated Blackarachnia is an amazing mold and you can find her on sale at Walmart right now if you don't already have her.

    And yes, of course Rosanna.

    Thunderblast is awesome. I know alot of fans don't like this mold but I do. And if you can get the repaint of Elita One. :D  Flamewar has a great color scheme too.

    Fembots I own that aren't recolors of "male molds":
    Armada Airazor
    Universe Blackarachnia
    Cybertron Thunderblast & Botcon Elita One

    Fembots I own that are recolors of males:
    Movie Fracture
    Cybertron Override (technically not a male mold in America, but was originally designed as, and is in Japan, a male)

    Out of the above, I probably wouldnt recommend Override or Airazor. YMMV

    Fembots I don't own but would probably recommend:
    TM2 or Animated Blackarachnia (but not the original BW BA)
    Movie 1 Arcee (but not ROTF Arcee)
    Animated Arcee
    Maaaybe Strika, Roulette, and Shadow Striker if you feel there aren't enough fems

    Thanks everyone for all the great reccomendations...Does anyone own both the TM 2 BlackArachnia and the Botcon 01 Arcee (repaint of TM2 BA)

    I was able to pick up the TM 2 BA and I wanted to know if Arcee is worth it as a repaint and if she is a "must have" for any Fembot collector.

    Thanks again guys!

    I don't own either one of those but I believe if you are going to own it the "must have" is one with the voice chip right?

    That would ne nice...from what I understand most of the ones with the voice chips batteries have died over time and it's hard to find one that still works. I would love to hear Sue Blu doing Arcee as a Predacon though.

    I really dig the colors Transmetal Airazor received for her Armada repaint.
