    I was just wondering what the majority vote would be on Generations Arcee coming with Daniel as her Headmaster. The Headmaster figures are cool, but they may end up too big for Deluxe toys and Daniel has had his fair share of jeers. Like it or lump it?

    Deluxe Fig? No. The Headmaster would be miniscule....

    We're already having enough nerdrage over not having an official G1 Arcee. Asking for one as a Headmaster is probably asking for too much.

    Besides, they didn't revive the Headmaster gimmick for Hardhead, either.

    I'm open to the idea. But I'm actually hoping for Generations Arcee to take more cues from her Animated counterpart in terms of accesories.

    Just to add, current Hasbro design orthodoxy doesn't revive certain gimmicks for Generations/Classics, if they deem them to be silly. A robot that transforms into a head is likely one such gimmick.

    Hey Cal,don't mean to crit but posting about whether Arcee should have Daniel as a headmaster is all kinds of wrong,and you may well think twice starting this thread if you think anybody is gonna vote yes.Daniel is like the most despised character in TF History.Like Jar Jar Binks from Star Wars Ep.1 "Meesa Ja Ja Binks Oki Day".So in short its pretty pointless to start a thread when you know what people are gonna choose.

    UPDATE: And to add,why should Hasbro ruin the first creation of her G1 (I hope) self by doing that?.

    But a Minicon helicopter that sticks out the back of a car isn't?

    The Minicon provides a boost to Hotshot's abilities. Hotshot can still function normally without him.

    What happens to Arcee once someone rips Daniel off her shoulders?

    That's funny, because I count five positive votes already. You were saying? :rolleyes:

    No, just because I'm more of the opinion that the "_____master" partners are separate robots, and not binary bonded life forms. One of the things that always bothered me about the US appearance of those characters.

    As much as I support the return of headmaster toys, Arcee w/ Daniel would be a disaster. It would almost definitley have a blocky, oversized, seam-covered head and
    a giant, hollow torso.


    And Daniel. *shudders*

    She talks through her belly button?

    Of course not. I don't doubt that people will vote no, but Rodimus Mike doubted people will vote yes.

    No, because I don't think of "Headmaster" when I think of Arcee. Besides, she was only a HM for, what, three episodes? And two pages of a comic before Daniel exploded due to Hated Character syndrome?

    I'd like to see Arcee with a modern Earth car mode, forearm blades like her IDW incarnation and a shade of pink that doesn't violate the eyes. And if she must have high-heels, design her so that she's still able to withstand a slight breeze, please.

    Well, Generations/Classics is about updating the old designs.

    They could release Generations Arcee with an actual car mode...and Daniel's face.

    I would have rather seen Thunderhawk's robot mode from the drone plane instead.
