    Hey guys, I'm new to TFW2005, and I heard on this forum that a lot of people were complaining that Movie Deluxe Arcee's tires, when folded into the body, were extremely floppy. Well, Teletraan-1, the Transformers wiki, had a great piece of advice on how to fix it. I thought That I would take some pics to clearly flesh out how it works. Well, maybe not clearly, given that my family's camera is really crappy, so you may be lost. But, I'm trying to help the best I can, so here you go!

    Step 1

    Step 2

    Step 3

    Step 4

    That's all I have. Hope it helps!

    Yeah, that's how I've been posting my Arcee from the start. I think I mentioned something about it in the feedback thread, I disremember. <shrug>

    I posted that fact about Arcee about the time the toy came out. I can't remember where I posted it though. Must be getting old.

    Nice one BlazeFrost, thanks. I only recently got the black Arcee and had wondered what to do about that... At the moment she's wearing her wheel halves up like giant shoulder pads. She's SO 80's...

    Welcome and Thanks for the handy info.

    This will probably be better off in the Radicons, or merged with the Arcee thread

    Thanks for pointing that out, although it still doesn't solve the fact that folding the wheels all the way down like that (the way the instructions tell you to) severely restricts the arms range of motion. It's the only real flaw on the figure.

    (Sorry for the thread bump)

    She's a great figure, that some dislike. Thanks for the advice, I'll see if I can fold up my arcee like this, as I love this figure.
