    I really want an Arcee for my Classics collection, and with the news that Hasbro isn't planning a Classics Arcee anytime soon, I'm thinking NYCC Arcee is the best option. She isn't very G1 accurate, but I think it looks like a great mold, and the colors look pretty good on her. The only other very good option is Animated Arcee, but she goes for about as much as NYCC Arcee and Bumblebee do together on HTS, and I don't think she'd fit in with my collection nearly as well. Would you recommend that I get her?

    I would say get her to display with other Prime toys, but not with Classics. If you like the FE Arcee mold, by all means get her. I got her at Christmas and I think she's great.

    There are good 3rd party Arcees out there. I'd go that route if I wanted a G1 Arcee.

    ^I can't afford any of those, and I'm not a huge fan of the G1-styled ones anyway, so those aren't options for me.

    Not as a Classics figure. It looks nothing like G1 Arcee, and would look terrible on a shelf with real Classics figures.

    I'm willing to bet she's near the top of Hasbro's "To do" list anyway, so you'd be blowing $30+ on an unacceptable short-term stand-in.

    I have her with my classics figures. She does NOT look terrible. He's right in between my Warbot and Fans Project Rodimus upgrade set United Perceptor, Genegarions Blurr and Kup and she looks fine. Looks way better than the Animated Arcee I had before.

    The NYCC Arcee will work with classics but Animated is still more G1. Animated shouldn't cost as much as the NYCC Arcee, since rarely anybody's selling the Arcee separate it's about $35-40. Animated Arcee should only be about $20-25 (plug, I've still got a couple in my sales thread). I think there's a G1 custom head for Animated Arcee but that's probably outside your price range.

    She is a great figure for what she is. That being a Pink PRIME Arcee. Other than that I agree with the following statement.

    Doesn't really fit with Classics stuff IMO, but if you want one might as well get it. They won't stay on HTS forever (probably :)  ), and won't get cheaper once they're sold out.

    She works for me as at the least a stand in. I don't feel the same way about the animated one. And anything else is a little more than I'm willing to shell out for an Arcee. So I say yes grab her for your classics.

    Not for the purpose of a Classics Arcee.

    i got the set...and i think arcee is awesome...no problems at all with joints and her paint apps are excellent...you can always sell the taxi bee if you don't want to keep him and that will offset the cost some $$$.

    If you like her, then get her. I've waited on getting figures before and then kicked myself when they were no longer available at a reasonable price. (Henkei Optimus; why does he cost almost as much as MP-10???)

    Yeah, just get it even if it's not really of the Classics-type, it's a great figure/redeco. I sometimes see loose mint ones on Ebay going for reasonable prices. Or you can get the whole boxed set with Bumblebee, pretty cool display if you ask me...
