    Wow! There's a good amount of kibble on the mold. Luckly it's not too glaring because I'm still buying it to see for mself! This may be a good indication that this mold was intended for the generations line first before TFP has it's own toyline. So that must mean there might be a remold/new mold of Arcee in the works!!!! Bumblebee and Cliffjumper have new molds from what we've seen so this is a very good possiblty that Arcee will have the same thing too! We can find out if this is true at next year's New York Toy Fair or maybe BotCon instead.

    I love how she's covered in kibble, yet still manages an Animated-style size-change between modes.

    Eh, still iffy about this mold. I want to like it, but the shoulder and back kibble ruins my favorite part of Arcee's design: the sleekness.

    I think I'll get the Legion version instead.

    They are kind of cute. Also they look like diffrent characters to me. I think I might have to snag a pink Arcee on eBay or something.

    Don't worry I'm sure we'll get a new mold that's more sleeker,more show accurate, and has less kibble eventully in the future! I'll be getting the leigon class version too!

    Don't let her hear that! Besides the mold could have ended up much worse! She has great articulation in the arms and legs at least! We will get a new mold eventully so it's in good hands

    Okay, the photographer has too much time on their hands. Thank goodness no human figures were thrown in there.

    As for the extra kibble and mold, I'm sure future figures of her will be more accurate.

    There's actually very little kibble if she's transformed properly. The back tire needs to be rotated 180 degrees, not the 90 usually seen, and if the handlebars are folded in, the shoulder plates can rotate upwards properly. Once they do, they make the tire/windshield/handlebars on her back seem much less annoying. She actually retains nearly all of the sleekness of her show design when you transform her properly, and is one hell of an amazing figure.

    Yeah, I've seen her properly transformed in NYCC colors, but she only looks halfway decent if you look at her straight on. Turn her a little bit and you see the giant backpack of bike parts though. And no amount of adjusting can ever change the fact that her "wings" are connected at the wrong part of her body and end up obscuring her shoulders.
    Because Hasbro wants us to wait so we keep buying DOTM crap to fuel our addictions :p

    These types of poses are terrible for this character. Doesn't fit her at all.

    Leaving the poses aside, I think this is a great toy! Actually is the one I am waiting the most, I want a decent Arcee toy in my shelves and this one is perfect! Or almost close to perfect. ^^' We still need a Classics Arcee. ;)

    I still regret skipping Animated Blackarachnia. I'll pick this up if it hits local stores (PLEASE HASBRO) to have my first fembot.

    Somehow, I don't like the pink on her. The blue looks so much better on her.
