    You don't have to want to bang her to want as good a representation of the character as possible. I don't care for the bow leggedness because it looks strange, not because it means she isn't hot. Just like I want any of my transformers to look faithful to the character. When I get her, the very first thing I'm gonna do is take her apart and see about fixing the legs so they actually fit where they're clearly supposed to rather than sticking out ridiculously far to the sides. I plan on doing other mods, too, including replacing her human belly with a more faithful robot one, but the legs are my top priority.

    I don't think it is. Mp hotrod and UT allen need their Leia. (Because they are totally Skywalker and Solo)

    Just get mgt-1. She got all the right proportions. They need to oversize and tighten her up

    Same toy basically. Delicate warrior's hips are narrow. People keep complaining about the wide hips and bow legs on the generations one so that's why I brought it up. Reminds me of the joke. Why are cowgirls bowlegged? Cause cowboys eat with their hats on.:lol :lolol wakka wakka

    I paid $120 for Delicate warrior a long time ago so she will always be my G1 Arcee. All these others are just my side pieces. I'll never butcher my boo lol

    I don't like DW. Decent design but everything about her is just a little too ... boring. Nondescript face, arms that are pretty much cylinders, alt mode that's ridiculously boxy from the front and unfinished in back (not as bad as Toyworld's with the butt hanging out though). She looks like a rough draft on the way to designing a good Arcee. Add in the fact that she was crazy overpriced for chug style figure. Sorry, I don't mean to poo poo on your $120 figure but I just can't get behind the "DW is better than Generations" thing.

    To be fair, Generations has plenty wrong with her too, which we've discussed here ad nauseum, but she just has more personality than DW.

    So, I've never ordered with Ali Express before. I checked out as a guest instead of creating an account, and now I have an email saying there are new messages on my order. I click the link, but it prompts me to sign in. Would creating an account with the same info I ordered with link said account to that order and allow me to see messages? Or ...?

    ETA: If anyone else is wondering this, yes, creating an account with the same user details allows you to log in and see your information. :)

    You have to remember that she came out a few years before generations Arcee. And she came with a g1 box. I knew I overpaid back in 2008 or whenever I got her but I was so excited to finally have an Arcee. What you say is true, all of it

    Fair enough. There weren't many options for Arcee back then. I've always wanted an Arcee and I considered DW but when I learned the price, it wasn't even a question: no freakin' way. Glad you like her. Hopefully FT's rumored upcoming Arcee will nail everything and blow us all away. Until then, OS Gen with some mods will hold me over.

    I bought two Detolfs, Quakeblast, Hot Rodimus KO and the Ratchet KO this month. I also have a cruise coming up in two weeks. Can't order her ass, yet.

    I hope Lulup don't jack up the price.

    I've got two ordered. Hoping to paint one up as a Paradron Medic, but if I don't get around to it, or if my daughter guilts me into it, it may just go into her toybox.

    TF-direct puts her at 7" I measured MP-28 Hot Rod and he was 7 1/4" so she seems to be a great stand in for MP
