    @dalianjj Phoenix was great, Grinder too, thank you for those. I haven't opened Sovereign but how would you rate this one? Can you fairly compare it to any other Fanstoys figure or is it in its own class?

    Die- cast wise, he is like Soar. Got lots of them. Transformation wise, he has the most steps. Coolness, he is very cool. I rate him better then Grinder and other dibots if you don't mind the robot arm in canon mode. I don't have Skyfire, so i can't compare it with him.

    Sorry Shanxs, I guess I was totally off on the intent of my post but I'm glad you described sovereign. Skyfire has a similar plastic feel to Kronos but less hollow feeling. I'm sure pure white plastics will always seem different from colored plastic due to content. It feels very well built, tolerances are great, tabbing in places well to hold together and it's unexpectedly HEAVY. There are several steps, "more than I imagined", but all easy.

    @dalianjj , how would you compare Rouge to recent releases like grinder, Sovereign or phoenix other than size of course? Are there any previous Fanstoys you could compare her to in finish materials or transformation complexity?

    My guess is that it'll follow the general pattern of most FT releases. The design philosophy of FT seems to be mostly intuitive transformation motions - parts go where you think they're supposed to go - but with tiny areas that require a little fiddling to get things to seat "just so".

    I think the only FT release I have that doesn't follow that idea as closely is Sovereign, which is mostly because by the time Galvatron showed up, the characters onscreen weren't transforming so much as Deforming.

    If Arcee follows Galvatron as a Movie/S3 release, if assume she'd have the "slick" plastic look with diecast in leg parts, hips and/or possibly chest area.

    disappointed we didn't get to see this gal at TFCon, this is one of the first arcees without the junk-in-the-trunk hips, love to see how they look in more positions.

    :lol  I just realized something, the more I stare at her head in that mode, the more I see an X-Wing Pilot Helmet.

    I was bummed as well. I want this gal so bad. Was really hoping to see some nice updated colored photos of her at the TFCon.

    This is probably my most anticipated upcoming FT figure.

    somebody really needs to do a sexy repaint of her wearing an X-Wing suit with exposed stomach, tight orange pants and such. I've seen some female Stormtroopers and female Boba Fett cosplayers with exposed skin areas at a few comic cons in the past, so why not an arcee cosplaying as an X-Wing Pilot? I know it can be done. :)  and just make the parts like her face, upper legs and parts of the arms Flesh colored with some Black gloves and black knee high boots. and last but not least, the pilot's helmet with rebel logos.

    it's almost like it was meant to be:

    Well, She's supposedly inspired by Princess Leia so I guess it's not that weird...

    hopefully some images in color will make that comparison less similar.

    you do you man. Maybe they'll pack her with blades and you can do a custom helmet/orange flight suit paint.

    or here's a tip, if you put the blast shield down you won't be able to see anything. ;) 

    ever watch a woman pack a purse? probably the same dark magic that Rouge uses in her shoulder pauldron

    I honestly dont know if i would even transform her. I just want her for the bot mode, and considering two, because of all the nice options that make them look different, such as the faces / chest / guns. Even the backpack can be displayed different ways (switched around). And i really love the largest gun and the visors.

    I do wish FT had put this one ahead of Kup and Springer, but oh well, beggars cant be choosers.

    If it was like that then we would never find the rest of the vehicle after the first transformation. Like when my wife asks me to get something from her purse...reaching into the abyss...
