    That looks badass. Will it be part of the main run of Japanese movie toys, or is it some sort of exclusive?

    Quite better than early prototype images. The new pink and blue help quite a bit to make this a must-buy more than ever for me.

    That looks fantastic. I love the silver highlights and the yellow eyes.

    If this doesn't come out Stateside (or if it comes out with markedly different paint) I think I'll have to import from Japan as I did with Nightwatch Prime.

    She's slated as MA-20, so it's supposed to be a mass release.

    Looks good. I could see this becoming a whole new character with a new head, and some modification to her "high heels".

    But the purples flames are not big winners with me. I'm thinking Hasbro has to enforce some sort of moratorium on flame decos on any characters that aren't Tracks , The Fallen, or Hot Rod. It's just too much. It seems like every time they come up with a new repaint or figure, they puzzle over the deco for a second, and then cave and just slap some fire on there. Can't they come up with something else for a change? :)

    Smog, would you prefer the Jolly Roger? I know I would.

    Damn, that's twice that I've went to HLJ and they've stopped their orders on the things I was looking for. First it was the Japanese Incinerator, now it's this one. Anyone know where I can preorder these two? I've already looked on Action-HQ, and they don't have them up for preorder yet.

    Oh look; a black repaint from Takara. Who'd have thought it.

    Well, at least there's actually a point to this one; it's supposed to represent the black motorcycle Lennox uses during the final battle in the movie.

    (which was apparently not written until after Arcee had already been dropped from the script, but would have totally been Arcee had she not been dropped by that point)

    Though the paintjob doesn't really look like it...at all.

    This paintscheme really seems much more fitting a 'con than ol' Arcee IMO, wasted opportunity for a bit of retooling for a new character. I'm fine enough with the regular deluxe Arcee from the line, no need to pick this one up too.

    Looks good. Given the "All Spark Blue" paint they used on her, I could see Hasbro slipping this figure in under the wire before Animated get's released.

    Ditto, I was just about to mention that. The presence of Allspark Blue makes me think this will get a stateside release, at least as an exclusive or something.

    I'd call her Elita-One.
    Then Prime will have a girlfriend.
    who also likes flames...
