    ARCEE used to be....You guessed it!! Hotrod! Cybertron Blurrs head and Thunderblasts arms are used. Did this one circa 2005. Never felt quite finito tho! I think now that I look at it I want to really tune her up a bit. I know some of you guys really feel she fits right into the G1 aesthetic, and I agree, but I think with what I've done and learned in the time since, I can make her better. Maybe a bit more detail into the alt mode. Fill in holes, accentuate her curves (fenders). Definately room for improvement. This is probably the sixth attempt at her over the course of maybe five years. Each one completely diferent. Oh and sorry for the cheesy group movie poster shot at the end. Couldnt resist!!!

    That works REALLY well... Hasbro definitely should have considered a remold of Hot Rod for this purpose. The final product looks distinct enough in both modes to be a new character.

    Would it have been possible to give her the "convertible" open canopy without exposing too many robot parts? Just curious.

    Acyually Smog, inside the canopy I was surprised to find seats! No robot parts(I'll shoot an extra close up pic) When I painted them white they looked nice and cushy for Daniels bratty bottom!
