    Custom Arcee WIP (updates 04/18)

    A lot of arcees have been post recently. I am also working with one.
    This is much much more difficult than I expected. The original toy is so compact. There is barely no room left for custom, so I have to extend the car mode to fit some new structures, which lead to endless polishing......
    Ok, here is the finished frame figure, still need some more polishing and painting definitely, but I think she will be like this when finished.
    As usual, I just mixed G1 and IDW style as I can.

    I think the backpack part is a little higher. What do you guys say?

    After painting wait for it dried. Didn't realize how long it will take for to dry, a lot of finger print left on her:(

    are you leaving her animated style, or are you going to add panel lines and other details to make it look more like Classics? Also, are you going to do more modification to the former cab of the car so it isn't so obvious sitting behind the new seats?

    The shaping you've done, as well as the head, for robot mode is really looking great so far.

    oh, please attach all of your images, not just one of them, thanks.

    classic definitely, that's my favorite series.
    For Arcee, it is hard to give an obvious difference between classic and animated style, since her body components have round shape everywhere. I will add some details into her after painting, basic on the IDW comic.

    Looking great so far, man. It's still early, but judging from your other recent works, this will be awesome. The head looks great also.

    I think this style works for Classics.

    Yeah, Arcee was always sort of rounded and futuristic looking... this works for me in terms of being a "classic"

    AWESOME use of the Blurr mold. You really captured the look in both modes!

    That's really impressive, love the balance, alto mode looks just as good as bot mode and neither one suffers due to the other.

    Can't wait to see this one finished
