    Back

    This is my first Arcee figure, but I am sure lots of other people have the original purple one or have read the review of the figure. That means I don't have to write a lot about the toy! Good for someone like me who lacks vocabulary.

    Having said that, I am very glad picking up this one, as I wasn't really interested in the original deco initially, and while it may not be fair to compare with the toy I don't have, IMO the black version looks so much better.

    The cube is so lame, BTW.

    I am very pleased with the articulation. I was worried that the wheels might get in the way when posing, but she can still manage good poses.

    Er, cutie? :)

    Can I have one? Looks way better than expected (although the kick-ass pics might have something to do with it...)

    Looks awesome. While all-black doesn't scream Arcee, it does look better on the mold than the original colors. I'm not crazy about the Allspark Blue on her beret-esque forehead, but it does break up the black nicely. Also, wonderful photos.

    Yum!

    Given the Allspark Blue, I'm still surprised we haven't heard of an impending U.S. release for this deco. I still have a little hope. Barring that, I'm hoping there'll be some at BotCon.

    Reminds me, still can't find the missle for my Arcee.

    I actually really like the mold. Prefer the colorscheme of the first release though, personally.

    And just because I have to say it..baby got back!

    Dangit, I really want this one instead of the original, but can't find any for a decent price. Hopefully BBTS gets more in stock...

    This black one and the pink one on the frontpage are good to go, wish they had them stateside instead of the magenta one, good mold for a 'cycle.

    I hope she'll be released in the US as well. It's just easier for me to go ahead and import as a Movie deluxe costs about US$25 here anyway.

    Got one on preorder from BBTS.

    And speaking of difficult to get Takara repaints of movie deluxe Arcee, the pink and white one from Wonderfest is made of sex and win. Expensive as hell, yes, but no worse than some Botcon exclusives I've bought.

    Once the black one arrives I'll have to update the Arcee group photo that's in my signature rotation.

    Those are excellent pics... Wish I had teh skills.

    This figure's a beauty, I got one (at ridiculous expense, but I've seen them go for more... there's one currently listed on eBay for £50 - that's 100 of your American funny monies - plus shipping!) last week. I think she watches me while I sleep, the little goth minx.

    Those are some of the best photos I've seen of a figure. Nicely done!

    I'm definitely getting this figure, just waiting to see if it'll come out in the U.S. at the last minute before Animated.

    wow, I haven't seen this before. black with purple flames is the hotness. I'd buy that if it was released at retail here in the US.

    Thank you for your kind words and sorry about a reply a week late :redface2: 

    I hope she'll be released by Hasbro, too :)  I guess they aren't keen on black repaints like Takara...
