    Hey all!

    If you're like me, you've always thought that First Edition Arcee would be so much better with her blasters, not those blades Hasbro gave her. It'd be more show accurate, and also slightly less ridiculous.

    But it seems the blasters always get built onto the sides of her arms, or underneath using the blades' ports. Arcee's blasters are supposed to flip out of her arms, for Primus' sake.

    So, i set out to create a set of blasters for Arcee which actually cover her hands. I tried to make them as show accurate as possible. It was important for me to make the blasters look like they actually came out of her arms, and also they had to work in both modes.

    The final product (which took forever due to Arcee not showing up in Australia to this very day, so i had to nab mine in Hong Kong) works by covering her arms using the side port to lock itself in place. The blasters can also be attached in bike mode using the exposed peg on her standard blades, and fire forward. For those who don't like her blades, and want to throw them away, no problem. The blasters can still be used as boosters in bike mode. Available in both FUD and WSF, the blasters are sturdy in both materials, and they even hold her blades as bayonets in robot mode (as if her blades needed to look even more ridiculous...)!

    I like them but I agree with LimeWire. Can you make them a little bit smaller?

    I actually think they're the perfect size. Nice job man. They look great on both modes.

    @General Stratton: It is available now. :)  Do note that WSFP may not polish the hard to reach areas inside the blaster, only the outside.

    Overall, I think this is some really nice work. I'd like to see the blasters smaller and longer as featured in the show. I do appreciate the attempt to hide the hands a bit. I think that's a nice touch :)

    Those guns are nice.

    BTW, Hi, I'm new here. My actual name is ZeltraxMillenium but the thing wasn't long enough to fit the last M in there.

    Anywho, those guns are very awesome. By any chance, can they work on the RiD Revealers Arcee? I'm thinking not but, something to think about I guess.

    Thanks! Took quite a while on these ones, mainly trying to track down a TF: Prime FE Arcee! :lol 

    The painted pics are up now. :) 

    Thanks SQ7. The blasters were made to be as accurate to the show as possible, especially the front on it. The size here is necessary simply because of the size of the arm.

    Well...that's better than satisfactory, right? :lolol 

    Thanks, and welcome to Radicons. The guns are designed for FE Arcee, and for now i only know that they'll work with her. I don't have a RID Revealers Arcee yet (even FE figures haven't shown up here yet...), though as soon as i get one then i'll be working on a set of blasters for her as well. :) 

    :) 

    Thanks Kaijuguy. The size right now is to keep it in proportion to the show (especially the cross section). The size right now is the minimum given the size f her arms. As soon as i track down an RID Arcee, i'll see about working out a new set of blasters for her. :)

    These were impressive from the get go. Lookng even better know that you've painted them.

    Will definately be purchasing a set if my FE Arcee order actually materializes.

    the FE line has been stopped i heard... many are not even getting their preordered items... though i think for arcee... the RID version is more cartoon accurate if you compare closely... =)

    Thanks booster. For now, i'm selling them through Shapeways, which is a 3D printing company. They sell the FUD/WSF ones (clear yellow-y one and white one, respectively). The painted ones...well, i bought some paint and got cracking. :)
