    It's supposed to be a remold of Arcee! Even I figured it out, gah!

    Actually, I figured this out when I first got Arcee and saw the concept art for the third bike months ago. I just never had a need to buy a second bike until Hasbro showed the blue-bike repaint at the weekend toyfair.

    I was thinking the same exact thing, but I cant figure out how to get the wheel on good enough. Its looking good so far though, and I cant wait to see it finished!

    Yep, this is how it should have been done - I don't have the Arcee mold yet (let alone two), but would like to do something similar when I ever do get around to it :D

    i thought the purple bike was named Flare-Up. also Elita-1 looks like the bike they are selling with HA Jazz and it becomes his weapon. maybe they are just giving us a third sister for now and will release Flare-Up later this year.

    By the way, arcee's bike window is actually clear transparent but painted black for some unknown reason. So if you really wanted, you could strip the paint and properly tint it.

    Nice. Not perfect but it works better than a repainted chromia.

    very nice clay :)  im planning to do the same my self. how did you remove the wheel from the leg section? and can you still teransform it? cant wait to see it painted :D 

    why hasbro didnt just do this them selves is a mystery to me. all they had to do was paint arcee purple and attach 1 of the wheels to the arm. if a couple of amateurs like us can think of a way to do it surley they can. thay are possibly the smarted toy designers in the world. how did they miss this?
