    My assembly line is in full swing! Just a simple repaint of Animated Arcee with a custom head courtesy of Uuser. Uber simple solution to the holes left behind from no swords. Took Red Alerts thigh inserts and just plugged em right in! Thanks to G60Force for the Spike/Daniel Exo Suit idea!

    Where did you attach the little side pod things that used to be attached to her waist? Some people attach them to the back wings, but I don't see them on yours. Do they parts form on after?

    I attached mine to the back parts, but it makes it tricky to transform and you can't raise the windshield as high up into the backpack. Looks great btw

    Right now they're just stand-ins. I'm going to intergrate them into the weapons. Which are from ROTF Brawn. Thanks!

    My only complaint with this, or any of the other Arcee kitbashes, is that I'm personally not a fan of the Animated line, show was good, but I'm not too fond of the toyline...

    Other than that it looks great, good job!!!

    It's still the oversized hands that just take away from it being in a more realistic "classics" type line. But, outside of that, nice job.

    Awesome work you've been cranking out lately, Spoonman! :thumb 

    Arcee's great! I do have a question; What did you use for the Daniel head? I'm curious...

    Arcee's excellent, top notch work my friend! When you say assembly line, does that mean you're making several of this one? How much do those heads cost?

    Oh, and what's the Ultra Magnus figure in that group shot? Is it a customised Classics?

    Question barrage over. Love your work.

    (Kup needs the iGear head, though ;) )

    Thanks. The head is made by Uuser and I highly recommend him. It's a great head. The UM is an old repaint I did with a My-Clone head. The assembly line comment is that I'm finishing all of my older commissions right now.
