    Hi, This is my own version of G1 Arcee, this is an old project that i tried to bring to life in 2004. Unfortunately it never saw a production due to the lack of the adequate materials and financial reasons, on top of that by the year 2005 Rabid Squirrel productions launched their A.R.C Fembot that was made of far more durable materials that I could get back in brazil so i just stopped any further work in it.

    The figure is a sculpt of my own and designed it inspired by the 98 botcon arcee custom that you may find in the internet.

    I made silicone molds and casted 2 copies back in brazil, one i sold to a friend of mine(if I am not wrong), and the other I brought to the US with me. It was broken and forgotten in my closet, until last friday when, trying to find some parts in my junkyard for the new version of an Arcee g1 I am planning to build, I found it. i repaired the broken joint parts and replaced them with styrene plastic joints and here she is, sexy and ready to take on the evel decepticons.

    She is very loose and fragile, because of the material she is casted in, but will stand regular display and fair manipulation and as you can see she is very poseable and yes she transforms as you may see in the pics, but as I planned it to be very poseable, that meant favoring more the bot mode than the vehicle mode, so the vehicle mode is not very neat.



    Please give me your feedback about it and if you wonder if i am selling this beauty, the answer is Yes, so If your heart is now burning in fire for her and you make a decent offer i may consider selling it here, before it goes to ebay.

    very nicely done

    she looks kind of sad. I'd probably be sad too if i was into a tool like Rodimus though.

    WOW that is really good man! The head sculpt is top notch. I would love to get just a cast of her head. Are you planning on seling one like your Orion Pax?

    Would you mind posing her next a classics figure to get a size comparison? Maybe Classics Hot Rod if you have him

    i'm the one that actually won the ebay auction. it's a great piece. and he shipped it quickly, and it was well protected. if you plan on doing more figures, let me me know.
