    I have both, and can say that I really like the Tigatron much more. The Arcee is cool, but the Tigatron is a much more fitting mold and just looks great on the shelf.

    Tigatron.

    Arcee is a great exclusive and all no question, the paint is a spot on for Arcee and was a really good choice for her but Tigatron is the superior toy of the two and much more fun.

    The Arcee toy itself is very limited in what you can do, I only took one (of me three :D ) my Arcee's out of the box but only to take pictures of. The mould is good but again not all that fun to play around with and the robot mode is almost impossible to stand.

    The Tigatron I actually have out on display along with X-9 Ravage and it’s a great mould to actually play around with and pose and whatnot.

    So as much as both are great toys my vote goes to the Tigatron, its a great mould and an amazing paint wile Arcee though good is no were near as great toy wise in comparison.

    Here’s some pics to help ya out, please don’t hurt me :D

    Arcee just looks too bizarre for my personal tastes, being a pink and white spider seems a tad off, but that's just me. Tigatron is practically a one-of-a-kind figure, and until the return of Ravage (come on, Hasbro, keep the search alive!), is one of only two ways to ever experience the mold. The snow kitty's easily the winner of the two.

    Tigertron. That mold is one of the most sought-after items in Transformers. Get it while you can!

    ...Anyway, I agree, go for Tigatron first.

    First, I have neither, so take my opinions with large amounts of salt.

    Currently, I have much more desire for Arcee. I have TM2 BA, and while she is definitely an unwieldy toy, I just think they did an amazing job on the Arcee deco. I don't have X-9 (yet), but I definitely want one. For some reason, though, I just don't feel like the mold suits Tigatron. The deco on BotCon Tigatron also always looks bland to me.

    So, I'll cast a dissenting vote for Arcee.

    No, wait! Get Tigatron. That means there'll be one more Arcee lurking around for me to potentially grab. :D

    *screams* I hate spiders, they scare the crap out of me, so I would go with Tigatron, that and Tigatron looks awsome.

    Roughly the same as X9 Ravage, if not a bit more...
