    i know Hasbro said a while ago that shed be a retool of one of the existing bike sisters, right? who do you think would be better for the 3rd sister? i personally think Arcee would be the easist to retool into her, but im not entirely sure... your thoughts?

    It's more than likely that the third bike sister -- I believe they are calling her Flare-Up, last time I checked -- will be a retool/remold of Chromia.

    I wish they would do more with the Universe line like putting the bike sisters in it would be great.

    I'm not holding my breath, given that Hasbro's attitude towards the bike sisters appears to be "They're dead anyways, why do you people care so much?"

    Not that I have a problem with that attitude. I wasn't collecting the bike sisters anyways, and have no real love of them, so I actually kind of share it.

    No no no no no no, and once again no. This question has been asked and answered more times than I can count.

    IT WILL NOT BE A REMOLD.

    Also, she will be Elita 1, not Flairup.

    I hope it's a new mold like Gryph said.

    Arcee is god awful and Chromia is mediocre.

    Out of the two, FalElita-up shared more characteristics with Arcee then Chromia. So if she were to be a retool, it'd probably be of the Arcee mold.

    Or they'll just screw up and release a purple Chromia. Who knows for sure.

    Her unique design certainly deserves her own mold. A Chromia or Arcee re-paint simply will not give her character or design the credit it deserves.

    I just want to know if they'll combine, and if so what the combined mode will look like. The two molds already released aren't good enough on their own to buy (well, maybe at half price), but a good combined mode could save them.

    Read the Q&A. They are going to combine and the instructions for the combination will be included with elita-1

    I don;t think so... from what I've seen of her (Elita One) she has a wheel for one of her hands, aand being that Arcee has both her wheels as "feet" that already creates a headache in terms of a simple retool.

    Anyway, I finally got Arcee and Chromia for Christmas (already had practiaclly everything else, so why not!) and would love to be able to have the third one now.

    I personally like the name flareup. Its sexy lol.

    But her sideways position on her wheel and the placement of the winsheild thing behind her head I think a retool of Arcee would be better. J

    ust work it out so as to get the wheel on the hand. Its not that dificult.

    Especially since the normal arm is right over the wheel =/

    That question was about the bike that comes with HA Skids, not the third bike sister.

    I'm hoping for the new mold so all 3 can still combine. Unless it's possible that one of the two we have now could combine 2 different ways, a remold/retool would be out of the question. Even if the combining is not in the instructions, it would be nice if it were something we could figure out on our own.

    Ebay:
    If tradition holds true, she'll be called Flare-up and be a purple remold of Deluxe Chromia.

    Then She'll be released as the third bike in the HA line, be called Elita 1 and will be a purple remold of HA Arcee.

    Because Hasbro can't keep the shit straight, so why should we :drunk
