    Shipping was fast for that one... I always thought that the Energon and Botcon decos were lame, but this one is really nice with the blue and the silver. Head is awesome, and I like the smokey clear weapons, they don't look so out of place. No mold degradation here, everything fits together perfectly. This will be my only Movie Scout!

    That mold looks really nice in those colors. I'll probably pass since I have the original Energon Arcee and I'm not a huge fan of the mold because of the shitty arms and flippers, but still, congrats man that looks really nice.

    Very nice deco.

    Leaves me torn. I like the colours, but I also have far too many versions of this mold thanks to Botcon 2005.

    Eh, I have no interest in that one. I don't think I much care for recolors from other lines posing for movie figures for characters that won't ever be there.

    I won't display it with the movie figures, to me, it's more like a Universe Arcee to me and it'll go on the top shelf with the miscellaneous stuff next to Cybertron Hightail.

    And what is exactly terrible? This is by far the nicest deco for that mold.

    Well the deco is just peachy.

    It's just the matter of the mold sucking.

    I'll probably pick this one up. I really don't like the mold of the figure, but I collect Energon weapons, so those will be perfect for my set.

    How secure is the connection I've highlighted? I have the Energon release of Arcee and that peg-hole connection, right out of the box, was so loose the crossbow wouldn't stay together.

    I've missed out on every other ARCEE and didn't think I'd make an exception here, but that's a very nice colour scheme. Don't think I'll be standing her next to my movie toys, but I'll still buy her this time round.

    Even though I already have the Energon version, I'll buy this. It's a much nicer color scheme..... not the irritating "pink is for girls" cliche that haunts the Arcee character. However, as others have said, there's no way it'll be displayed with the other movie figures, it would be completely out of place. Like all my other motorcycle bots of similar scale, it'll find a home with my Alternators.

    Personally I think white suits Arcee better than blue, since she had a lot of white on her originally.

    I wouldn't mind her pink either - I mean you might say it's stereotypical but to be fair she was about the 4th or 5th female TF, not the only female TF. Plus I kind of like Pink TFs, and no other TF is really ever going to be coloured pink.

    Well, Arcee does have funny elbows that don't do much and funny open hands that only fold out of the inside forearms... Quite bizarre.
