    It has been a while since we've got anything new toy wise in the Animated line. The latest being new voyager classed Bumblebee and repaint of Grimlock

    But where is Arcee? Wasn't she announced around the same time as Wreck-gar at some convention? Wreck-gar has since then been released. Could it be that, Arcee has been put on hold for the movie.

    The Animated constructicons were slated as a two pack deluxe set, but have been put on hold thanks to the movie, since Devastator will be in the movie.

    I have been hyped up for Acree since her first appearance on TV show. Animated Black-arachnia has a gorgeous fem-bot mode and it would be awesome if we could get another fem-bot in the same style.

    It'd really be a downer if her figure does not get released.

    Things that give me hope that she might be released is the new repaint of Soundwave with a new minion. Also the announcement of a slew of new characters will most likely spur Hasbro to release the new characters in a couple more waves.

    Hopefully, we'll see her in the next wave with Soundwave.

    Nah, she's still coming. We just haven't seen any pics of her robot mode yet. According to TFCC (Transformers Collectors Club) preorders the next wave of deluxes after Samurai Prowl/Waspinator will include Arcee/Electrostatic Soundwave and will be released in April.

    She'll be out. We just have to be patient.

    I think she was announced even before Wreck-Gar, its odd that we havn't seen anything of her yet, but I'm sure that she's coming

    Arcee will be here.

    Im more worried about the constructicons, they need to really be leader size or oversized Voyagers. If they are deluxe size 2 pack they will suck

    Like I said, I wouldn't be surprised if pictures of her and Soundwave popped up within a week.

    Can't say I remember that.

    Only thing official I can recall on them was that Hasbro was holding off on them until they could release them with ability to do what they do best.

    Arcee, soundwave recolor and the wave after them
    will probably be revealed at Toy Fair in a couple of weeks.
    Hasbro needs something to show as the ROTF toys will be off-limits to cameras.

    Yeah, the whole thing with them being a two-pack has been fan speculation. With the jet twins being the new two-pack I just can't see this happening. Which is a shame, because with the series (supposedly) ending at season three... I don't see Scrap and Mix getting made... unless they're at the tail end of the Animated line.

    And, yeah, that's pretty much the only comment Hasbro has given us about those two at this time. I'm kind of hoping that they give us some info about Animated one way or another (dead in the water, etc.) at Botcon and if it is dead... it'd be nice to know which character's are going to finish off the line.

    Lets just see what toyfair brings us before writing Arcee off as K.I.A. once again.

    Arcee's been solicited as wave 7 with the Soundwave repaint. She's coming. We've seen the Voyagers solicited at the same time.

    I'm think we'll see the rest of Animated, her included, at Toy Fair. And probably the first assortment of Revenge of the Fallen will be unveiled too.

    Arcee bears the distinction of being the character whos toys I am simultaneously looking forward to and not interested in whatsoever. Animated Arcee has me very excited as it could be the best toy representation of her ever made. Movie Arcee appeals to me about as much as a box of smashed anuses.

    Um.....ouch?

    I'm going to take a pot shot here and just say that more than likely we'll see Arcee as a redo of Blurr with some minor modifications (ie: pink instead of blue).

    Hopefully not though.

    Doubtful, given that she was seen at Botcon (design sketches at least) and she's supposed to look like her on screen appearance in bot mode & a three wheeled version of her G1 vehicle in her alt mode.

    I specifically remember some Hasbro rep saying that Arcee was a completely original figure.
