    In spotlight Arcee, Arcee choose to fight with UM to get a chance to find JHIAXUS. What did this guy do to her before to make Arcee hate him so much? One piece of the note from JHIAXUS may help to reveal the answer.


    "I, JHIAXUS, the true dominator of Cybertron.............Nova Prime? Just a puppet on the stage. The end of the journey of Arc will be the start of his new fallen life……"

    "……I think I am really possessed by the blue light....it generates too much current in my center processor. I have to solve this problem before leave with Arc……"

    “……capture you successfully. Nobody noticed my duplicated robot has replaced you position……..After this brand new operation, you will be a part of me for ever……. ”

    The following bloody pictures are not proper for those who is younger than 18 cybertron revolution time

    “Arc is waiting for me, I have to leave, but I will finish you after I am back. Wait for me in this hibernate cage, my love……..”

    War within, Power supply was cut……

    to be continued...... (spotlight Arcee)


    Ok, about the custom. Try to mix IDW and G1 style to give her a female worrior feeling.

    I really had a hard time on the painting part, since it is rainy day and I cannot wait the first layer fully dried before adding another layer. It turns out that you must be very patient in this stage.

    anyway, here is the toy

    Just needs some touching up and it's perfect. Have you thought of giving her a gloss finish? She'd look even better if you did.

    I honestly think this is the best Arcee custom I've ever seen. Both modes work and you've captured her feminine features as well.

    I tried the gloss coating, but it makes the robot mode seems sticky. Maybe I should add gloss coating to her car mode only.

    The material I used to build the structures cannot afford polishing. I should use epoxy putty instead next time.

    Awesome custom, this is just great, only critique I have is that the putty on the shoulder and thighs needs to be smoothed out just a bit, it still looks a bit rough. Other than that this is a great work, the mods and sculpting on the face are excellent. What kind of putty did you use?

    Thanks
    I used the putty my wife bought from walmart before. Actually, it is not a perfect material for model like this, it is hard to polish. I think epoxy putty maybe better, mine is on its way.

    This and the other Arcee custom really makes me want to get the Blurr figure and make my own. She looks great.

    She's hot, I love her. Now make another one with epoxy putty so you can polish and make her shine even more.

    Great to see the ALT shots...

    ...the extensions you did to the nose really brings out the Arcee in the mold.

    I would love to see you take this mold and do a proper Blurr, or combine this mold and Cybertron Blurr into the comic images you posted.

    Great job regardless.

    Killer work! Possibly the best arcee done to date, though some recent ones come close...yours is brilliant.
    Could you post some pics of the underside of her vehicle mode and maybe even a step by step transformation? I'm still trying to figure out how the backpack works in the transformation....does it get detached along with the front headlight?
