YouTube - TFTM Arcee
I'm in the same boat as you. I'm not really sure how much I'm going to like the wheelbot design for her in ROTF, and she looks to be wobbly if she does combine. So, I picked this figure up on eBay cheap and am glad I did.
Slow review day?
Anyway I actually like the first movie version of Arcee, it's one of the few movie molds I kept, the rest I sold off long ago. Why on earth Hasbro(or Bay, take your pick) decided to make her a 3 bot combiner I'll never know, ah well.
Nope, I review all the figures I get when they show up, I just got this figure the other day.
I got the black Takara version of Arcee that came with a little Allspark cube, she's awesome.
I think they made her 3 bot combined so she would be as big as the other bots.
I really regret never getting this figure. I saw the battle damaged one in WM once, but never got it.
Love this fig. Never understood the hate for her.
And in doing so took away her individuality shown in the comics. *sigh*
I just recently reacquired Arcee (after having my original one stolen last year at work), and I still thoroughly enjoy the figure! Yes, three bikes as one would make her as tall as the others but as an individual she is just as cool. To me, she makes sense strategically as she can get into smaller areas better and follow humans better.
Plus, I have a thing for both motorcycle and truck Transformers. I love Chromia, can't wait to get RotF Arcee and I enjoy the TFTM Arcee. I think, to avoid confusion, that TFTM Arcee needs to be called Elita-1!
I'd say grab her online as she is a very solid figure and a LOT of fun.
