    If anyone only wants Arcee, I will buy the Ultra Magnus titan master from you.

    Send me a message.

    Pretty sure Hasbro said so when this Arcee first got unveiled. That it was just a pre-release and that a standard release would follow.

    Neat!

    I have the 3rd party fill ins for Blurr and Brainstorm so this will be the first time I'm getting this mold.

    Wonder why they kept Magnus's head mode secret? It looks pretty great, i'm really surprised.

    I had no idea Arcee was remolded until these pics. She looks even better now. Can't wait to get one.

    As for another release, we've heard nothing about it, other than that the Hascon release was first. Releasing it via the website could be the secondary release. We basically know the rest of TR, and we've not heard any mention of her coming anywhere else, so unless she's something like a Walgreens exclusive sometime next year, without Magnus, I'll just spend $35 to get her now...

    This is a pretty nice figure in hand. Colors are good, head sculpt is good, and I am pretty happy with the remolded parts.

    Update: Got a Nautica from a boardmember here and threw her fans onto Arcee to see how it would look with a shortened hood. Love it. Hope someone can make on for Nautica now!

    That is a really nice looking Arcee. I hope I'm able to get one.

    I have to say that the packaging is really neat. Unfolding the box and having the art right in the middle makes for a great presentation. Even after I clip Arcee and Magnus out of their trays, I'm definitely keeping this box...something I rarely do at this stage in collecting. As many have noted, the boxes for this set are almost always a bit roughed up. Mine has a few minor scuffs and dings. I wonder if the wider release will receive more careful handling.

    The Blurr mold was one of the best executed deluxe figures, IMO and even 14 months down the road, I still pick up Blurr and Brainstorm and enjoy handling them. While Chromedome's mold would have made sense for historical reasons, I think they made the right choice.
