    Is there any pink on her? All her paint apps look silver.

    All the questions i'm getting are taking away from me editing my review :p 

    What i'll say is this, of the previous FE figures that got redid into RiD figures (cliff, bumblebee, optimus), i prefer those FE ones over the RiD ones. Except Arcee. I like the RiD one more than the FE version.

    well, I can't watch vid reviews during work time ;)  even just a thumbs up or down really helps me until I can get home xD

    But wow, that's really cool. From the pic it doesn't seem like it. I look forward to hearing your reasons!

    Man those wings make her like she belongs in the Batman franchise. I'll be buying two of these figures: one to keep original and one to paint as Batgirl :lol

    >Back kibble
    >No pink

    Sucks, but other than that it looks pretty good.

    She looks VERY nice!:drool:  My only complaint that she has that backpack and perhaps no waist articualtion but I may be wrong. Other then that though she's amazing!:D  I love the fact that she's more in scale! Downsizing certainly works for Arcee's case!

    DEFINATLY going to pick her up when she comes out!:thumb 

    I may pick up two copys of the RID Arcee figure. One for normal uses and the other I can work on at to get rid of the kibble on her and make her back more like the CGI model!

    I agree, the downsize really helps her and makes me like her a lot more. Amazingly enough, vehicle mode, the two figures are damn near identical in size

    This looks better than the FE. No pink is a plus. I hate the pink on the show. It's so arbitrary and doesn't work well with teh blues, balcks and silvers of the rest of her. Making it silver gives a much more unified look.

    The Backpack sucks, but so did the one of the FE. At least all the kibble is on the back now. Plus her arms are blue. And the robot mode is just so improved. Excluding the wheel on the back, it looks really bang-on to the animation model. If there is a smirk, at leats it's not as doofy as before. Do you think we could get an actual comparrison?

    This and Vehicon are the only RID figures that have the clear advantage over their FE counterparts.

    Does she have a smirk? Because it looks like she's going "Oh, I'm sorry, checking me out? Yeah, that's OK, drink it in."

    Yet another RID letdown. Don't know why Hasbro didn't just use TFA Prowl's template to build Arcee from so they could avoid this exact kind of kibble ridden mess.
