    this is sad, i was really expecting an actual remold for the third bike, and out of all the anticipation just got thr same old chromia....im sure the combo is going to suck aswell.

    anyone try putting 2 chromias & arcee together??

    Wow.

    That is some epic trolling on Hasbro's part. After all this time, it's a repaint, and they didn't even make it the right color.

    LOL!

    Oh wow.

    This is a waste of this being my 1000th post.

    But well deserved to say, I am disappointed.

    wow, you'd think at the least they'd make her the right colors! Where the hell did black come from? Ugh, she'll probably end up pegwarming alongside Chromina and Arcee

    Okay seriously what the fuck.

    Out of everything I've seen tonight, this is easily the biggest disappointment.

    Though I heavily anticipate the nerd rage that will follow. Oh, how delicious it will be.

    The bike turns into his gun shield. Not third bike sister.

    I think people are being a bit ubfair about the colour of this bike - I don't think that photo of a picture is necessarily the most accurate representation of how the colours on the real figure will be.

    That said, if they were going to just do a repaint, the Arcee mold would have been a better choice, IMO, as it seems the more similar to Elita-1 than the Chromia mold does.

    The black is sexy, but yeah, it shouldn't have been a repaint

    I'll get her just to complete my bike sisters, but this sums up part of my feelings on this:

    I never understood all the demand for the third bike sister. From what I remember the Chromia and Arcee weren't popular all that much. And then you've got Arcee and Chromia shelfwarming all over the place. What exactly were people expecting for Elita-1? If anything, she would look different like how Chromia and Arcee are different, but she would still have that same basic feel and design.

    Sorry, my 2 cents probably turned into a little rant. :lol

    Like it would've been any less of a twisted mess with an all new mold?

    It's really hard to tell, but it looks like she is a Deep Purple with black parts. The photo is crap but if you look closely you can kind of see a different shade with a purple tint on some of her parts.

    Or maybe it's all black, who knows.

    Would have loved a new figure for this though.

    The combination will probably look like crap. Like Devastator.
    Everyone here will bitch about it.


    ... Nothin' new...

    ... I'll probably bitch to though...

    After looking at it for a moment, I am certain that it is a purple color, but it is a dark and some what earth.

    I am disappointed that, after delaying it for so long that it is just a Chromia repaint. I figured if it was just going to be a repaint with no other changes that it would have come sooner. The worst of it for me is that this was my favorite design of the three.
