    Some people have asked me to post pics of this one. Sorry for the rushed pictures, I'm kinda busy with commissions.

    To head off any questions:
    *She can't transform
    *The wings are from the Cyberverse figure and glued on
    *Everything was removed with the cutting tool of my Dremel
    *The pink is a mix using Testors acrylic Gloss Red and Testors Model Master's acrylic Steel
    *The blue is Model Master's True Blue Pearl
    *She is far from being complete hence the chopped off butt and I have no idea when she will be complete as my personal projects take a back seat to commissions

    Would there actually be a way to mod rid arcee using the smaller cybervese wings,
    Think it might look OK in bike mode with smaller wings as well,
    Can this be done?

    Surprisingly the honeydew are a similar size so yeah, it can be done but you'd have her arms and legs exposed in vehicle mode.

    Awesome stuff! I've been consistently blown away by your Prime customs. I snagged an extra Arcee just to try and emulate the work you've done. Keep up the great work!

    Question about the eyes. Is it easy to paint them? Are the irises raised like Ratchets?

    Ever since I painted ratchets eyes, Arcee has been asking me when it is her turn.

    Might pick up a cyberverse arcee and try it,
    Yeah I would imagine the arms and legs would be a bit exposed, but I think its a small sacrifice for a more show acc bot,

    So far I've found Starscream to be the only Prime figure to not have molded irises.

    hmmm I like the new wings... I wonder... IS there any way to have them use their pegs hole (obviously make some receiving pegs!) that would allow for transformation? I'm thinking take the "old wings" (or Shapeway some new ones for a sleeker "look") and permanently affix them to her legs (using the original transformation tab) this enables transformation but she gets her small wings! Thoughts?

    I personally wouldn't dig it as it would add a ton of mass to her legs.
    I dunno. At some point I may fool around with a way to make her transformable yet manageable.

    so you removed the wheels on her legs, cut them in half and glued them up higher on her legs?

    got anotehr RiD Arcee ready to start customizing..I was wondering if you could answer this question. After you remove her backpack, is the bump where the gas tank is hollow, or is there plastic under there--all one piece? I was thinking of sanding/shaving down the back so her back is flat, but I don't want to and find out it's completely hollow =P lemme know

    It's mostly hollow in the gas tank. At the bottom edge of the tank there is an "L" of plastic that acts as a stop for the neck hinge mechanism, but the gas tank istself is hollow.
