    Arcee's eBay auction starts tonight at 7:00pm EST!

    Here it is! The figure TF fans from the 80s have been waiting for for 25 years! I scoured the 'net to see if anyone had ever made one of these, and out of the two I found, one was a Chromedome repaint and the other had a non-transformable Daniel (and didn't look much like Arcee or Daniel anyway...).

    The scratchbuilt Daniel figure is based on the design of the 1988 Headmasters due to Arcee's head size. The Arcee itself is a substantially modified and repainted IGear figure (NOT the cheap-quality Impossible Toys version). This IGear body is VERY durable and well made, and I recommend it to anyone who wants a G1-accurate Arcee figure.

    As for a G1-accurate HEADMASTER Arcee figure...

    Please let me know what you think! I just realized that I haven't put the faction insignia on her upper chest yet. That will be applied there.

    You made the Daniel figure look like he was in his exo-suit! Nice touch. I love it all.

    Daniel was made from a repro 1988 Headmaster figure, so if he's "a bit round" that was so he fit right in with some of the original Headmasters! Compare him to Nightbeat or Siren's Headmaster figures. He's identical minus the different details.

    As for the bug eyes, well, you try painting something that small! :)  I used a freakin' NEEDLE.

    Thanks for the compliments, guys.

    The day I saw Arcee's head come off and transform into Daniel in an exo suit was the last time I watched anything to do with transformers for years. I always thought Headmasters was dumb and the Arcee thing was the icing on that cake of dumb, yet you sure did one hell of a nice job making it work on the Delicate Warrior figure!

    This cracks me up. I love how you solved this... I mean in the show they MAJORLY fudge the entire Headmaster thing for Arcee in that Daniel never has a detailed transformation into her head, and once transformed his Exo-Suit is literally just the one from TFTM with no signs of "headkibble".

    I think your idea of using the 1988 style headmaster was the best possible one. Good job!
