    So I had a bunch of episodes recorded and just watched them then I noticed I think in episode 6 that Arcee had these two pink panels at the top of her chest whereas these were absent before. I think it was to add more pink to her body since it's mostly blue. I can't link to images yet but if others are willing to find them then I don't mind.

    It kinda flip-flops from ep to ep as to whether those panels are clear or pink, but they're usually clear.

    They're part of her windshield, I think. The colouring of them does seem a little random at times. Sometimes they're perfectly clear, others they've got a pinkish tinge to them. And then there are a couple instances where they are so pink they look like any other part of her armor plating.

    Yes, a lot of people noticed. They're even keeping track of it in the podcast.

    I can't say I ever noticed the disappearing pink panels--I recall pink being there more often than not.

    What I have noticed is that she always seems to have three wheels, however. One on her back and two in her legs (they look like wheels to me, anyway).

    The two in her legs are half wheels.

    Also curiously, they're the only obvious part of her that doesn't mass shift, so they end up looking tiny in her bot mode.

    They were only pink for about 5 episodes. Clear seems to be the default.

    Bumblebee's eyes had different designs through some different episodes too. The ones filled in with blue seems to be the default.

    At least I hope so, because the hollow ones are really creepy.

    Bumblebee's was a change, but Arcee's was a trick of lighting-they were trying to show the lights on the ceiling reflecting off the glass on her chest. Preeeeeeeetty sure thats why its pink half the time

    I honestly can't tell if you're serious or doing that on purpose.

    Are they always pink when Ratchet is near and the light might reflect his red onto her clear windshield parts or is it really random?

    I never noticed that. I like the clear more since it does differentiate her more from G1 Arcee. Prime Arcee is such a different character and i prefer the only link between the G1 and Prime Arcee being the name.

    I hadn't noticed that about Arcee at all. I'll keep an eye out from now on though.

    She also has pink metal "swirls" going down her legs, just figured it was part of her color scheme.
