    Hi Guys! wanted an arcee for my classics collection, so i decided to make one.
    she transforms into a sort of cybertronian convertible car.
    i'm pretty happy with the result.

    head - modified '07 movie BB head
    body - prid arcee
    backpack - rotf sideswipe

    thanks for looking :)

    bot mode does look fantastic. I'm not 100% sold on the vehicle mode but I think it could be really close.

    Wow, nice kitbash!

    The robot mode looks great, and the basics of the vehicle mode are interesting (good call on those Sideswipe parts!), though I think it could maybe go a bit further. It's kind of cool that the motorcycle seat echoes the little fin that G1 Arcee had in car mode.

    I'm also glad that someone finally used that 07 BB head for Arcee. I've been wanting to see that done for a long time. :)

    I really have to agree here. The bot mode is very well done and screams Arcee. The issue I have with the alt. mode is it still looks like the rear end of a car. I do also agree that your very close to good alt. mode with some fine tuning.

    OMGosh....

    I was actually thinking of almost the same exact thing- altho if I proceeded with this project I would have used DOTM Sideswipe- for the open top / seats.

    I would not have considered the BB head tho.

    Good job.

    The only complaint I see is the back end (and maybe the exhaust ports on the front). The back end looks incomplete for some reason, like it's waiting for some side panels or something. The exhaust ports on the front could work, maybe paint them up as guns and have them move underneath and out. The robot mode though, is a work of art.

    Thanks for your comments guys! i do appreciate them all!
    I do agree with the alt mode being a little weak especially on the rear, but this is what i have settled for, for now. think of it as cybertronian, rather than an "odd" looking earth car. ;)  i have it on my list to find an improvement for this though, so i'll be updating the thread when the time comes. :) 
    thank you all again for your comments!

    I'm loving how the backpack kibble made from Sideswipe parts looks reminiscent of G1 Arcee's "wings". The headsculpt came out great too!

    I'm pretty sure you could lop off the "tail" bit from PRiD Arcee's body, since that was needed for the bike alt mode, though I guess it looks pretty cool sticking up like that for her vehicle mode.

    Yeah man I think if you cut away a lot of that backpack and made a small convertible style windshield rather than using the Sideswipe rear windows, you could cut out some back kibble and make the car mode way more convincing. It could also use a bit more side shell towards the back, but I do see what you were going for and it almost works as is.
    Bot mode just looks great!
