    Still camera-less, so I'm not getting adventurous with the posing and angles yet, but here are some more size comparisons with my phone's camera.

    Tried....but I think the motorcycle mode is too small for the same Arcee to ride on.....

    [​IMG]

    Similarly for Wreck-Gar....it is too small for him to ride on........

    [​IMG]

    But.....Wreck-Gar being a bigger scrambler bike.....Arcee can ride on him fittingly

    Both the blue and the pink are the exact same mold with the same accessories, so other than the colour differences, there isn't other things that is different about the both of them. The pink figure comes with a yellow visor and the blue figure comes with a blue visor.

    Some people may want to make the blue figure "Chromia", I don't know but with the TF Prime being in the season now, this blue perfect effect figure actually feels no less than "Arcee" to me as well, somehow. I love the both of them the same.

    Argh, I really didn't want to give Perfect Effect any more of my money because of their insane prices, but these both look so awesome :eek: . And I still have my preorder with BBTS at the $90 price.

    I think this is quite the trend of the 3rd party items. It may be easier to look at it this way; fansproject warbot cost about USD108 and warbot is only a slightly bigger figure than this perfect effect Arcee, so I guess the price tag of USD75 before shipping (at RK) is about there. I am not saying that I am happy with the 3rd party kind of pricing but just a relative comparison of the pricing.

    This was my reasoning as well (though I got Defender at the original $84 pricepoint). RC is smaller but has more accessories so I didn't have a problem paying about the same price shipped.

    $108 for Warbot is for the rerelease though. He was originally around 80 bucks.

    I wasn't too sure of what warbot's first release pricing is as I started actively collecting and buying up the transformers items from 2-3 years back fairly recent, both 3rd party and official items alike...but if it has been $80 before, with the inflation kicking in etc, I guess today's Perfect Effect price isn't too far off relatively.

    To be fair, this is the best price/plastic ratio in a figure PE has ever released. At the same $90 price point is PE's Reflector... which is stupid small.

    Grrr. I think I will try trading for one. I'm not sure if I can hold off until the BA version since I like the look of this one so much. A video review is going to make or break it for me.

    I just seen optibotimus video and its pretty cool, but he does give pointers of caution though so you need to watch it yourself.

    I didn't mention this in my video because price is fairly subjective...but my personal opinion is that i would have preferred this figure to be about 80 bucks. 100 is a bit on the heavy side. When you compare it to the FP Warbot, which had a considerable amount of die cast, not to mention it was a triple changer. I think Motobot is a terrific figure, but 80 would have been the happy place for me, price wise.

    Do you still think it was worth it now that you have it in hand? Alot of people are on the borderline and are using your review as the last chance to sway them either way. (I got mine already, I love it.)

    Side note:Which Snake Eyes was that in the video?
