    Wow. VERY impressive.

    If the final figure looks this good, I can safely say "Buy".

    3D looks nice, but from personal experience, things in 3D usually look better than final products. IF you can really make a stable/not floppy final product that looks EXACTLY like your 3D model, then I'll buy and I think many others probably would too. But given the pics of the actual prototype, I'm not so sure...
    Good luck though and I hope the prototype pictures were honestly just bad pictures.

    Man I hope it looks that good when it gets released. I'm really exicted about this for some reason. I also hope Hasbro doesn't shut it down.

    Dear Impossible Toys,
    Thank you for listening to the fans when it comes to giving us what we want! She looks great. One question though, will her legs give inward articulation to allow for the more feminine poses? (see attached)

    p.s. I love the Quints!

    The render is well done, but the proportions in the torso seem off...her neck looks a little short. A slightly longer neck and thinner chest would help balance out the arms, and adding a fraction of thickness to the arms probably wouldn't hurt either.

    Nice! Let's hope the final product lives up to it's CGI rendering... *fingers crossed*

    Hasbro dropped the ball by not making a G1 Arcee in either of the Classics lines.

    Looks like it! I think I can see a joint cut into the inside of her thigh-- right up top, underneath the hip connector.

    Aside from her arms being a bit to thin, it looks good. Well atleast the CGI model anyway. I hope the final product is as good.

    Well, the renders look good. Maybe they should have started with posting these images. They could learn a thing or two from the guys at iGear about marketing and such.

    This figure is growing on me a bit. It looks like it would fit in just fine on my Classics shelf. Hopefully those joints are tight.

    Like I posted last night, so far, so good. If this is executed as well as the Quintessons, no-brainer buy from me.

    And a Paradron Medic repaint if it happens, say, as the 2010 TFcon exclusive?

    Much nicer than the resin prototype. Consider me interested.

    Wow. I wasn't interested when I saw the pics of the prototype (it looked... edible) but consider me sold on this.

    Goodbye Energon Arcee, hello Impossible Toys Arcee. Welcome to my Classics shelf!

    If it ends up looking like that and is in scale with classics I'll get it.

    I'm digging it personally. Depends on final cost. And how much it looks like the render.

    I am curious what hasbro may do about this though. Between Springer, Drift and now Arcee. Are we kinda pushing our luck now without the character rights?

    Well either way, it'll be nice to hav these in my collection with Classics/Universe/Dollar Store VictorySaber. >.>
