    I remember seeing something about a black movie arcee being released in Japan but I was getting out of the movie line at the time and didn't pay much attention. Now that I'm getting amped up for ROTF I decided to try and find one but I haven't had much luck. I see some on e-bay for upwards of $70! Are there any online stores that might still carry this figure for less or am I gonna have to save up and bite the bullet?

    I won mine on eBay, $70 sounds about right. It's a Limited Edition like the pink Arcee.

    Yea I think thats a Wonderfest exclusive. $70 is prolly about as cheap as you will find it. Which sucks, I'd love to get it but as thats the only color released so far that I care for but I just don't think that mold is worth that kind of price.

    Black Arcee was actually a general retail figure. It just happened to be produced at the tail end of the line, was a variation exclusive to Japan, and produced in low quantities for whatever reason. So, much like Prime Battle Mode or Incinerator, it's gone up in price considerably.

    Thats right. Black Arcee was a general release. I got mine for $35 plus shipping if I remember correctly. Got mine off ebay from agabysscom. Which looks like his are now $80. Probably be patient and you can find one on ebay or the junkion exchange.

    the black arcee is the best version in my opinion. i got her for 35 canadian prolly equivalent to 27 usd. here's a few pix that i took for comparisions.

    i was too lazy to dig up the parts for the normal and battle damaged ones. in order left to right
    wonderfest, battle damaged, normal, black

    Kicks? I don't know. I haven't been up there in maybe two years. Northgate isn't exactly my stomping grounds. I live about a half hour south of Seattle.

    I've got the purple and black, and I love the mold once she's had a little makeup applied... I really wish I could have gotten the pink and white one myself, also.

    Maybe someday I'll see fit to blow 100$ on a deluxe sized figure. Someday. :lol

    Yes, the black and pink Arcees set me back a bit too. I got my preorder into BBTS too late and had to go to eBay instead for the black one.

    Though I think the Pink one was the point where I decided it would be cheaper, or at the very least much easier, to pick Japan exclusives off Yahoo Auction Japan via a proxy service instead of eBay. Got Crystal Henkei Convoy and Wildrider that was too.

    Black Arcee looks great as a vehicle to THS-02b Convoy Black ver:

    That's very cool. Never actually seen that black Arcee. One of the few Movie toys I liked (I loved the film designs, just not the toys of them), all the colourways were good too. And that Hybrid Convoy is great, superb engineering; got the normal colour one myself, like it just as much as MP Convoy. Killer boxart on the black one, too, IIRC...

    Can someone post pics of other figures on Arcee in bike mode? I want to know what scale she is in. Maybe if someone has the mcfarlane halo figs or marvel 6" figs riding. Thanks.
