    I've been trying to decide whether or not I want to spring for it, since I'm looking at about $120 - $130 shipped. How is the quality on this figure? I've seen pictures of it in other collections, and I think it's far superior to the Valkyrie figure. I'd like to pick it up, but I'll be :banghead:  if it turns out to be crap.

    So, any opinions are welcome :)

    ZOMG! VERY MUCH WORTH IT!! I have it and have no regrets. This thing is on par with FansProject for quality. The price tag is definately steep but you won't regret it. I 100% recommend it to anyone willing to shell out the dough. Delicate Warrior = Lamborghini valkyrie = Chevette...to put it simply.

    I'm looking forward to getting mine, it's in my POL. I was very disappointed in Valkyrie, from pictures Delicate Warrior looks much better.

    I paid a little less for mine too as I received mine from the very first preorder batch, but it is ABSOLUTELY worth the money!

    It looks awesome with my United figures.

    Paid $93 for mine and I don't regret it one bit. It is THE best representation of Arcee, IMHO.

    I have a feeling in the next Classics type line a Arcee will be made. So maybe wait and see what she is. As long as they don't decide to make her a Motorcycle cause she's a girl then I'd take that instead.

    What? If you want a Motorcycle Arcee just get the Transformers Prime figure when that gets released.

    It does not matter if Hasbro ever make an Arcee. Delicate warrior is a perfect Arcee and nothing is going to take away from that. The figure is worth every cent. It is one of my least regretted buys of an expensive toy. Buy it!

    she looks G1 alright. But to me, classics is "updated G1" with a bit of a modernized look. And Delicate Warrior lacks that touch. It fits into G1 collection, but not my CHUG, that's my opinion.

    uh WELL worth it. I bought/pre-ordered mine direct from Igear so I paid far less than what you are quoting but it would still be worth it to me even at that price.
    Look at it this way: There will never be a more perfect version of the character, even IF Hasbro makes one of themselves. Don't kick yourself later when Igear stops making them.

    IGear doesn't make Delicate Warrior. It even says so right in the description on their page. They only distribute it. The figure is made by one guy, so the fact that this figure is even still available at all is quite surprising to me. If you want it, get it now.

    Would it be possible to get a shot of Arcee stood next to the classics Datsun mold and maybe even Hound?

    She looks really great, but I'm curious how see measures up to the original classics autobots.

    I'd love to have one to round out my line up, but the price is just too high. Especially right now, too many high ticket items coming out in a short time frame.
