    Everbody got 6 faces (including the one already attached in her helmet)

    There are two 'default' looking faces that look identical, but one of them has a subtle sculpted smile. It's hard to see, because the red lips were painted on it just like the default neutral mouth lipstick.

    Spent last night transforming all my Arcees back to robot mode to do some comparisons. I have to say, I don't know of a single Arcee out there that doesn't have at least one bugbear in the transformation. All of them involve chicanery in getting the head and chest through the hood of the car mode.

    Arcee's character model/alt mode just isn't compatible with simple, easy, intuitive transformations IMO.

    Got mine. Used glue to solidify the connection of the two small screws that hold the alt chest on. Don't trust those at all after my first copies didn't hold at all.

    Transformed it watching Paiks video. The transformation scheme doesn't bother me but I hate it because: 1) The legs don't really snap into anything keeping them snug up there in car mode. 2) Getting the head not to drag is a awful since it also doesn't snap into place. 3) I worry I'm going to break the chest apart at the prior mentioned connection point.

    I'll put it in robot mode and never transform it again. Grrrr. I hate that.

    Decided to pull Arcee out of my kitchen trash after leaving her in there overnight as punishment for being a shitty toy.

    Anyway, I watched Paik's vid. Helped a little. managed to get her back into bot mode and though and entire section of her snapped off easily so basically she can never be a car again.

    Tossed her back in the box. never touching it again. to angry to look at it.

    But, again... Thankfully I have my second one which I'm NEVER transforming.

    To say the Least..., I think Arcee would have been much better off not being a Transformer at all and just being an action figure instead.

    Yeah i have slight buyers remorse. She has arrived but i just don't even care to transform her.

    I prefer not to do place-holders but if someone is ever able to capture the likeness and refine what FT didn't i'll probably regret it more. On the flip side, i'm glad i don't care too much about s3 bots anyway, so a statue is probably good enough for now (still annoying though). Checked another character off the G1 box at least.

    Transformation isnt hard just bad. You've got an explosion of parts that cant get out of each others way and on mines her neck and chest plate dont stay attached for anything.

    I'm not seeing TR arcee or zeta arc.

    a lot more are missing if you count motorcycle, boat, and spider versions of arcee.

    Current plan: Impossible Toys Valkyrie (waiting to see if the one I bought on ebay comes, she's not easy to find!), and maybe Zeta's reissue of Leia. Was going to get TR Arcee even though I'm not a big fan of the bot mode, but sheesh the price on that thing...

    MMC's when it comes out.

    :( 

    Don't encourage me.

    I'm limiting myself to G1 Arcee for the most part, though I threw in Pink Assassin because she's cute and Azalea just because. And I can't resist getting out the Binaltech and Q-Arcee.

    Also I usually don't get repaints, I got the Platinum Arcee even though I prefer the Legends paint job just because it came with the Platinum Magnus, Kup etc.

    you're right.
    I've never seen that version of elita-1 up close, and it's rather light pink for elita-1, causing the mixup.
