    I would like Arcee to be as tall of just under the height of Hotrod.

    I can't imagine ever getting rid of them - in fact, if I ever got rid of my TF collection, my rather large assortment of Fembots [in every scale - Legends, CHUG, MP] are probably the one thing I'd hold on to.

    I also love the IF mold... it's just not exactly what I want for a G1-inspired 86 Movie Autobots lineup.

    I am kind of liking having the exhaust pipes wrapped around, they improve his balance a little... but I did end up swinging them around the spoiler.

    I may be crazy, but to me, this little legends figure has better proportions than the official MP :eek:

    Mine came with a bunch of stress marks and some thin cracks around some of the pins. They are all internal and can't be seen in either alt or bot mode. They also don't affect the functionality of the figure, so I'm not too worried. But yeah, ideally the figure wouldn't have come with imperfections like these out of the box.

    100% it does. They also really nailed the colors on him.

    Mine is currently sitting in a PO box (with like 8 other legends scaled guys) until I get back into town. Can’t wait to fiddle around with it and snap some photos!

    Here is a quick, easy and harmless mod I did to make him stand better...

    BEFORE: I marked in black the part of the foot I want to shave down.

    AFTER: I think I shaved down more than I planned but Its a harmless mod so no worries

    So, anyone has this bot with their regular legends class toys (IF / DX9 / Magic)?

    How do you guys like him in general, worth getting?

    Yep, he's with my Legends display. Works great as Rodimus.

    I display him with my 'Legends +' gang, but here he is with DX9 Arcee...

    As Rob mentioned above, he works best with a standard Legends collection if you think of him as Rodimus Prime.

    These Papatoys figures are built like a tank. This Hotrod and their Grapple and Inferno are very well built. I don't have their Reflector but I am definately in on their Magnus.....

    IMO, I would go as far as to say he is the best hot rod we have ever gotten (yes including all the masterpieces and 3rd parties). maybe until FT hoodlum is released. animated hot rod was good too.
