    Okay, so here is my Alternators Arcee. I used a Tracks corvette with an Overdrive/Windcharger head. I know its not a real Arcee head, but hey, I had to improvise and it came out pretty okay....I kept the white flat in bot mode because as for transforming the legs, it'd be a pain for the paint and all. I also used a flat white in vehicle mode as well just because the shine of the glossy pink, went well in contrast of the flat white. The pink, I searched for the closest I could find that would match her tone of pink. I think it matched fairly well. Although, the pictures dont help much.....

    I think you did a pretty good job. The head, though... I know you expressed reservations about it but it really looks like Windcharger got pranked after passing out from a hard night's boozing, and now he's woken up, looked in the mirror, and someone is going to pay.

    2 questions for Halo:

    1-where did you get that avatar?^^

    2-Why lipstick? I always think the idea of fembots wearing lipstick was odd.

    I like it.

    I don't think it looks like windcharger's head, but it doesn't look enough like Arcee's head either. I think the real problem with it is just the single peice for the optics. If you could either paint the middle of it white, or even use a dremel to sand it down some how in order to split it into a set of 2 eyes instead of a single bar it would look better


    Otherwise once you've got the autobot logo on her chest it'll look great. Very impressive job!

    Nice job, she looks good. Can see why you used lipstick. In case anyone can't figure out it supposed to be a female , that lipstick is a dead giveaway.
    Plus she's a kissy kissy character and it makes sense on her besides it matching her artwork.

    Tempted to open up one of my extra Tracks now and shoot with some pink. Im not too good with the dremel, mist use a Microman or princess leaih head

    I think it works. Arcee is a reach because we as a whole have an idea of what we WANT Arcee to look like. I think if it was a different color and name, even as another fembot, it would work better. Overall, I like it.

    i see what you all mean, but i ddi try it without the visor, it just, looked funny. but i may try to digibash the visor to see what it may look like, but overall, im happy with it. I did see someone selling heads, or was contacted by one, but i really dont see in putting out $25 for just one head....but thats just me....
