What can I say, this is a really cool looking figure in person and was a surprise to EVERYONE! .. As you can see, Minerva is a re-colored Animated Arcee. A VERY crisp white and nice flat red work VERY well together. DJW and Shawn Tessman work on her for a while and really put a lot of thought into the design process here. They made the color scheme and we all were able to follow it in the class. Between hand painting, airbrushing, and the custom sticker decal set, we are given another official Fem-bot...and guys.. HOMERUN! I think this figure will be one of the more more sought after animated figures, not only because of the limited production, but the great look if it.. To get a real nice run down of how the class works, check out MegaHoavok's review! Botcon 2011 Customizing Class experience – Making Animated Minerva!*|*Collecticon dot org and here are the pics... Shawn's awesome "prototypes".. I did a little extra panel lining on mine...I also have the Animated style ears, which my buddy to whom's collection this is joining really likes!
