    Anymore of these going to be made ?

    I understand CHMS were going to fake it but I would consider buying the original version before the bootleg shows up.

    Hi, let me make this thread alive again!

    I have been reading the reviews you guys wrote for the above item and I have questions about the off white plastic.

    Question 01:
    Notice that the upper body has the off white plastic with metal pin on it to make the both hands rotate. Just wonder if the round shapped off white peg is easily cracked as we need to rotate it to store the hands in very unique position?

    Question 02:
    For the offwhite stick connector on both legs, are they easily crack/stressmarked?

    Thanks!

    No worries on that off white plastic, it is quite tough.

    Hey guys, I just received my Delicated Warrior Arcee and examine the items in details (2 pieces). They are great!

    And I am very impressed with the service provided by the pretty lady seller from China:
    1. She is responsive and able to communicate in good written English
    2. Her packaging is excellent and my items were actually so well protected by the white foam!
    3. I have emailed a few sellers from HK and China but she was the only one impressed me in her reply to meet my request for unfolded box card, excellent box condition, inspect item from the clear window

    Her ID is mg-cherry2011 in ebay.

    Thanks.

    I just notice that my Arcee inlay box is not the white one, but the transparent one and it has 1 sticker only.

    Is it the 2nd batch?

    I will buy the iGear Delicate Warrior eventually. It's the best version of Arcee out there and if not for the high price tag I would've bought it already.


    Edit: After visiting TFSource and iGear stores (neither have it in stock). I've decided to buy it from Chimungmung instead. It'll be a nice addition to my growing Classics/Generations collection which is replacing my G1 collection.

    Unfortunately, there is supposedly only one guy assembling and painting them all. It's essentially half mass production 3rd party product and half small scale hand made custom. Unless that changes, $30 just isn't going to happen.

    Classics all the way! It'd be to go with City Commander, Protector, Blurr, Kup...the usual suspects. I'm loving the look of delicate warrior, but that price...

    Straight up, Perfect Effect's Arcee is too much of a departure. Yeah, Arcee has had two different iterations as a bike, but for her to be a "Classics" iteration, she should be the futuristic car in my opinion. TJ has a really good review here (if you haven't seen it already) for PE's Arcee.
    Toy Review: Perfect Effect PE-DX01 RC - YouTube

    In about the last minute of the review he gives his opinion of both figures (he needs to review iGears figure) and his stance on which is a better Classics Arcee; I whole-heartedly agree. Though it's just an opinion, this and other reviews should help your decision. Also, just a heads up, iGears Arcee is getting a little more scarce to find, but the price is still the same. I went ahead and secured one just yesterday, don't wait too long friend.
