    Brown instead of black, and a slightly more unnatural pink face, right?...

    Watch out, she's a SUPER spy!

    She's got the show-accurate dark pink on her chin which Hasbro's doesn't. Wish they could have done the lips and "eye shadow" also but oh well... at least they got this and the feet right.

    Wow, some of the things TomyKara has done to update/accurize this figure are hilariously frustrating.

    I never even noticed the spot of red on the chin of the cartoon model before now. Maybe just me, but it looks kinda out of place and bad on the toy. (though painting in the lips and 'eyeliner' might make it fit in better.)

    So, how are her thumbs holding up?

    I'm glad I have the US version... the only saving grace of this one is the painted feet, but frankly I can easily paint mine myself. The chocolate brown tummy and arms are ugly, and I prefer the more pink-ish face then the violet color they used here.

    You know, I was hoping they'd paint the handles of her swords silver, at least. Or chrome. Strange that they use chrome for almost all figures but not her.

    I guess I have to get my passport, buy a ticket, get on a plane to Japan to get an Arcee.

    Of course, I arrive and be sold out.

    The animation model is intended to be a very dark color, and is colored black with a brown rimlight (kinda like Ramjet's gloves, or how black characters in old comic books had a blue rimlight).

    Hasbro chose to make it full black on the figure, while Takara/Tomy chose to make it brown. The actual color would be somewhere in between, but is hard to show on a figure..I'd say Hasbro's Arcee looks better because of it.

    Just the question I was going to ask. Does she still have the weak plastic in her hands?

    Even if it does or not, I still may pick one up to swap out the feet on my U.S. ver.
