    The mysterious flip-out slot panel has pumped up my hopes for this toy actually combining- thanks very much for showing that right off the bat! :D

    I don't want to get myself too hyped, but whooooooo! Mysterious flip-out-panel! Thanks very much for bringing that to our attention. This is the one figure I've really been desiring a video review of, and you did a great job of it.

    So she is part of a combiner. Awesome. Btw, I'm always amazed by the number of parts you're popping off in your reviews. :p

    I really hope we are getting a combined mode cause that thing still looks goofy to me. Great review, other than the kickstand issues (found myself saying "just get her to stand up already").

    I might just get it cause it would be an awesome beast machine figure and the combined mode is an awesome idea. I am eager see how well it is pulled off. Kinda hope the other two will be smaller or Arcee is gunna be huge.

    I really hope the combining thing is true. Otherwise, although the bike mode looks pretty good, I'm not getting Chromia. Nice review.

    I'm on my phone, which means I won't be able to view the video until tomorrow. But so far based on the comments she sounds cool. The hidden panel thing is very intriguing. Arcee remains one of the most mysterious things about this new movie. Along with the "7th Constructicon" and Soundwaves "earth mode".

    I just want to know outright. Like, NOW.

    I think she's cool. What's that about her "being a bike that just stands up"?

    I'm unimpressed by this figure. Her robot mode is a mess, an absolute mess. The vehicle mode was designed quite well, and the transformation at least gives the appearance of something awesome, but the final product sucks.

    I'll end up buying her because she's in the movie and apparently combines, but yeah...not impressed with this one at all.

    Man, I really like these Arcee bike people. Hoping they all combine I will be getting them all.

    What the hell.
    What a junky floppy excuse for a robot design.
    It reminds me of something from John Carpenter's "The Thing"...only robotic.

    Abomination of a transformer.

    Great review of the mysterious figure. And I could hear a future generation Transformers Fan in the background :D

    The hidden panel provides hope that I might decide to pick this one up. I'll accept the weak robot mode (weak in figure execution, not character design) if the three bikes do in fact combine into a larger bot.
