    I'm suspecting we should be seeing these in retail any day now...
    Excellent review. Prefer this version of Arcee (and the regular version of BB as well) over the NYCC versions.

    Personally can't wait till I see a review of Clifffjumper(1st edition) and Voy Prime. Good review as always, Brony Peaugh! That review cracks me up still.

    Well chances are they're still blue beneath the elbow... This might more than likely be a prototype figure that never got those paint apps. (key word ismight).

    The details really pop on the pink version. The blue version, while show accurate, is too dark and hides the mold details, IMHO.

    I never watch the new shows, so I just call em as I see them when it comes to the toys.

    Peaugh gets really excited in this video, which really is a stark contrast to how utterly bored and serious he sounds in all of the other videos I have seen of his. Biased to the Prime series? Probably so.

    Me gusta.

    For a long time I couldn't figure out Arcee's transformation because I hadn't seen a picture of her backside. I was convinced each wheel was fitting into a heel, as opposed to the rear wheel splitting and each halve fitting into a heel. I'm impressed as how seemless that part of the transformation is.

    Great review.

    Couldn't agree more. Amazing work by the engineers.

    Looks great, and is the only reason I want the NYCC exclusive. Love the look of pink-Arcee.

    True, but I might have rather seen a whole wheel in each of the legs just to get rid of the one on her back. Oh well, obviously still a buy-on-sight.

    I was hoping they'd use Transmetal Tarantulas' wheel-splitting engineering for Arcee. & nice to see the front wheel can sit in her back show-accurately as well.

    Damn, they really pulled it off. She's not 100% show accurate, but at least they got a lot of things right with her. I wondered how they were gonna pull off the symmetrical look with the tire ankles.

    It's a long shot, but I wouldn't mind getting a Leader class version of Arcee just for the sake of having an awesome toy for an awesome character. ;)

    Cool. The blades don't look good to me in either mode, so they're shoebox bound.
    ^I don't recall her having a tire on her back in the show. hm.
