    Hey there everybody!
    I grabbed an Arcee figure last week and although I do like the figure and can appreciate the out of the "cube" design of it, in alt mode she is WAY too big! So I decided to pick up a Reverb scout figure and make my own. She is still a bit big but a damn sight better in scale to the deluxes' than she used to be. She's made up of most of Reverbs parts and a Frenzy figurine from 07 Barricade. Still need to neaten it up a bit then paint her but the transform process is complete. She'll transform pretty much exactly the same as her licensed deluxe counterpart. This is an "in between" project. Just killing down time for my commissions (waiting for paints, puttys, etc to cure).
    Hope you all enjoy! Crits always welcome!

    So the correct scale is scout class? I'm waiting for the Legends class fembots for my movie line-up.

    Great work here, dude. :thumb

    I really like what you've done here!

    In terms of scale, it's a bit of a gray area with the movie toys, though. Knock Out/Reverb is actually pretty close to scale with the Alts/BTs (I've picked up a few for customs myself). Your Arcee will definitely be a lot closer in scale with the Autobot cars and trucks, though. :thumb

    Yeah, It's still a w.i.p. The head will be modded to look like her. My plan is to have it just as detailed as the deluxe, if not more. I figured just because it's a scout doesn't mean it should lack any detail.

    No parts-forming! Like i said, she'll transform almost identically to the deluxe version. It was actually more simple than I thought it would be. It's mostly just all ball joints.

    Man this is a great idea and Arcee is really shaping out nice. :thumbs2: It really bugs me too that the figures are not in scale with each other, I mean how hard is it to make them like that? Then again, I wouldn't want movie Sideswipe or BB to really tiny just so it can be in scale with voyager Ironhide or something. Also, i guess if they were to scale Prime would be pretty huge and even more expensive than he already is (which is too much IMO). But a giant Prime is never really a bad thing...
