    Well, this is my next project.

    I have an optimus protoform and am tuning the body to better fit Arcee. The color scheme is perfect. I used an iredecent pearl WHITE and accented in a metallic pink. I need to find the version 1 TF movie Arcee for the head (best fit IMO) not the purple/black one.

    So before I get too into this, I wanted to know if anyone has any good ideas for her!

    I rigged up 2 motorcycle tires under the protoform. in vehicle mode, it looks maybe like a cybertronian motorcycle. I will post more pics when more done. She joins the other 10 that are not complete hayahaaah

    I'd use deluxe Arcee's head as it's basicaly the exact head used in the comics.

    I forget where it's originally from (Energon Arcee?), but now it's a Target-exclusive scout class. It originally came out as Scout Class Arcee, but with the deluxe Arcee available, you might have to wait for them to restock with Scout Class Elita-1. Also, since it's a much smaller figure, the head will be too small. It's bad enough that she'll have a masculine protoform. Do you really wanna make her a hulk-bot?

    There's more to making a fem figure than narrowing the waist. Find some way to narrow the shoulders and widen the hips, and you ought to be good.

    I'm going to have to suggest deluxe Arcee's head too. With a slight paint adjustment and removal of the wierd head/hair piece her ead looks a lot better. Plus it'll fit the protoform's size and movie asthetic better.
