    TFW Transformers Prime Arcee Gallery - Click me!

    Earlier in the weekend I shared our gallery of Transformers Prime Cliffjumper, and seeing as Bumblebee got some love in the form of Protoman's review earlier I figure let's not leave Arcee out. So here's her gallery!

    Arcee's probably the most poseable of the three toys I've got - she's got a greater range of mobility than Cliffjumper, and her shoulders and elbows aren't awkwardly designed like Bumblebee. Only problem is the wings on Arcee's shoulders tend to catch on her handlebars so the shoulders sometimes don't quite go where you want them to, but there's enough movement to pull off a nice range of poses. She's another really fun toy - my only major fault comes from her arms being left as black plastic instead of being painted blue and silver-pink like in the show! I bet Takara's version will fix that if they add more paint.

    Click here to check out the full gallery! 60+ images of Arcee in all her glory!

    That face, ehhhhh...

    Still surprised how she gets larger in robot mode and still has kibble. Witchcraft!

    That's my least favorite part of the figure.

    True but I'm betting if she does get a new mold they'll fix that problem! Despite that I'm really looking foward to getting this figure!:D

    Looks very shiny! When I received the NYCC Arcee, I was surprised how small the vehicle mode was. Pretty impressive!

    I don't have Energon Kicker, but is he much bigger than his Microman version?

    I still say she's the weakest of the three released thus far. Hence why I put her away for Christmas.

    ^Thanks :)  For some reason I've always thought he was bigger.

    Me too. Maybe it's just because I've been playing with RTS Wreck-Gar for a while, who has a huge bike mode.

    A bit smaller, actually. Compare his size in that image to the one of Gai from Gaogaigar at the end of the gallery (there's a sly reference to another toy I got recently tucked in there ;) )


    The face bothered me at first too, but I've got used to it a bit more now. Not a bad face, just one that seems a bit off at first.

    Those comparison shots are very nice. (Check out the last few pics here, guys!!)

    Sol, you are getting lots of TFs lately as well as Brave toys? I'm jealous.

    I so love TFTM Arcee mould, but she looks clumsy compared to TFP Arcee in robot mode.

    The face isn't really all that bad - but there's just some odd details that seem to ruin it:
    -the un-painted crest jewel (odd as it is, this will throw off the look)
    -the un-painted black cornea
    -the missing eyebrows
    -missing blue mascara

    Compare this screenshot
    [​IMG]

    to the actual figure...

    Not all hope is lost, however - as we can also see in this shot, the mascara line is actually sculpted into the face, which should make painting a little easier...

    Good observation! So all we need to do is to put details on her face and chest and she'll be all set then?

    Hmm.....so was this the Arcee the Hasbro guy was telling us to wait for at Botcom?

    If so I'm not impressed.
