    I finally bough the PEDX01.
    I can appreciate the look in both modes but this figure is no Arcee for me. I like to get more fembots so she fills out those ranks but for me Arcee is still Delicate Warrior.

    The build quality is superb, with great tolerances and plastic quality but the ankles are designed in a faulty way IMO. The nubs on those ankles are beyond being a bit tight and especially because of the die cast near by it is impossible to transform without cutting the nubs off. Any toy where I have a combination of paying $100 in total to own it and I have to cut it to make it work must automatically become a fail. To add to that the ankle guard snapped in half.

    I am still interested in Black Arachnia but that is because of the character not the toy.

    This picture proves to me that I made the right choice by sticking with Perfect Effect. We'll all have our different opinions, but truly seeing them side by side, the Delicate Warrior looks like a baby toy to me.

    I realize it finally gives fans that G1 Arcee they always wanted...but it definitely looks like a G1 toy, and out-of-place with the more modern figures we have been getting from Third Party companies (and sometimes Hasbro :) )

    I just convinced a friend to give PE Arcee a shot, and I'm very curious about his opinion, as he also has both molds.

    I need to get the bLue one and the blackarachnia one at some point, but just got the pink RC and Im loving it! One question though, does anyone know how to contact Perfect Effect? One of the legs for the sniper rifle on mine just fell off! (peg and all!) and I wanted to know if replacements could be gotten

    You have to contact the seller, PE won't be of any help with that.

    I would say Delicate Warrior fits in good with the Masterpiece line of toys as well; she looks really good next to the MP Sideswipe. PE Arcee is more of a Generations/Classics re-imagining

    I bought it from RK and had some QC problem (sloppy paint spots): they sent me replacement parts with no fuss. IIRC some other user here had the same problem with the gun's tripod and even with one of the swords, and they all got their replacement parts from RK without any issues.
    So... did you really contact them and were told to look out for help elsewhere? It's strange to hear that, they usually have a pretty solid customer service!

    You realize you quoted and responded to a post that was made 3 years ago?
