    This is my attempt at fixing the wrong done to poor wonderful Arcee for the movie line. I love her new color scheme, but that head was just not perfect enough. So I gave her a better one. This figure will be entered in the Botcon 2008 art contest.

    Head seems a bit small. Neck post is a little long, too. I like the colors.

    Neck may be a bit long, but the head is really the perfect size. As you can see in the last picture, it fits right into the vehicle mode. Any bigger and transformation would likely have been an issue.

    Where is that head from? Did you make it, or is it from some other source?

    The head is from the Japanese Arcee model kit. I had to chop off the neck and dremel out a hole that was big enough to fit onto the movie figure's neck, but not too loose so it wouldn't fall off. Then I just did my best to color match for painting. A relatively simple custom that I feel goes a long way in improving the figure.
