    So I own the First Edition Arcee and i know I'll be seeing RID Arcee soon, and I'm trying to decide if the RID version is worth picking up. I've heard some good things about the RID version and I was wondering if anyone who owns both could weigh in about which one they like better. Thanks!

    RiD one wins for me. I have all the first edition figures except Vehicon, and Arcee is actually my least favorite. I can't get over her crappy robot mode scale (she's taller than every other deluxe except Starscream) and creepy face.

    Oh, and I like the shade of blue on the RiD one more despite it being inaccurate.

    Figure to figure, the FE one's gonna get my vote because everyone on her just works (the paint, the shoulder pads, the minimal kibble, etc). However, the RID one does have a nicer & more accurate chest (aka because its not trying to use bike parts to make it), so she's a little closer to how Arcee looks on the show.

    Just look at a bunch of pics & videos, and I'm sure you'll be able to decide if picking up the new version's worth it for you.

    RID. But I'm skipping both so I guess my word's not worth much here.

    I have the FE one, and I say her. The shade of blue works better, and she is less kibbletastic than the RID, albeit a little less accurate.
