    Hi you probably remember my first arcee attempt that I showed a couple of years back and re-posted in a new thread almost one month ago, well Arcee is a character that has obssesed me for years due to the non existence of a proper toy, and I have seen many attempts to make one,:

    1-The fisrt attempt of an arcee, prototype seen in transformers first season complete, EXcellent, but it was too much like the comic arcee.

    2-The attempt to repaint chromedome as Arcee (the worst for me)

    3-The botcon 98 Arcee, the robot mode is very well proportioned and transformation is flawless, but the vehicle mode is just half accurate, because as my own first version and the new titanium proto(discussed later) the rear part of the vehicle is just the legs bent forward.

    3-My own first version of arcee (pic with optimus and rodimus,that is the same aforementioned)never saw a production due to dinancial reasons.

    4- The very good ARC fembot from Rabid squirrel, that even though is a really very, very good piece, I do not consider a G1 Arcee toy because it is Too poseable, and some details were changed drastically for whatever reasons, maybe not breaking legal rights or to favor more poseability. Also even thought this one has four wheels and rolls, the legs again have the same transformation pattern as the models mentioned in points 3, 4 and 5.

    5-The recently seen titanium arcee prototype(abandoned by hasbro), that i think was excellent, but again favoring more the robot mode and poseability lacked a rear vehicle part (again just the legs bent forward, no wheels.)

    6-And some others you may had seen in the internet.


    Well I got tired of this, and breaking my brains to pieces I designed a new Arcee that will try to resemble the closest I can the TV arcee, but,as well as it should have always been, have a decent car mode and most important be part of the G1 toys.

    What I am talking about? well, you may have an ARC fembot for instance, but let's face it, if you put it together with KUP and HOT ROD, it is just Bigger and has far more advanced posseabulity, also, her fine and feminine limbs do not fit into the "Blocky" g1 styled toys, so I present you with a sneek peek of my new project, the arms are still in progress, and most trasformation sequences and processes have alerady been solved but is not finished yet, beleive me, this is the result of FOUR long years, thinking and re thinking how to make Arcee what she is, A G1 toy.

    Dude! Best fo friggin luck to you! I've gone through many many variations of this one myself after nearly a decade of failures so I feel your frustration and desire to see a proper Arcee! I posted one here, the closest I could come to retaining her G1 aesthetic, and yours is , by far, the best I've seen so far. (and its not even finished) If I didnt know any better I'd say you went back in time and stole the plans from Hasbro! Good luck and CANNOT wait to see her finished!
