    Not liking it. I can't place my finger on it but, it looks "off."

    As I've said before, I think the set itself looks good... just not on Animated Arcee's body.

    Other than the gray head, I like it. But that can be fixed with some paint...

    Not a bad sculpt, but-

    A. It's gray.
    B. It clashes with the Animated style.

    It's as bad as putting G1 Ratchet's head on a Movie Ratchet body. And then there's the fact that Animated Arcee isn't supposed to look exactly like G1 Arcee in the first place...

    That looks terrible! It looks nothing like any iteration of Arcee's head i've ever seen, and it looks rubbish on that body. Plus, the quality of moulding is very shoddy from the pics they have up.

    yuck, easy pass, the eyes look off, and WAY too much lip going on, colors are horrible, and the overall sculpt is just bleh

    I think the fact that the original Animated Arcee head is so damn good, it makes this look kinda crummy. I realize they are trying to make a G1 Arcee by upgrading the head, but the rest of her body still has an Animated look to it. It's just not going to work no matter how much they tweak the head.

    I think for the most part it works. but as others have pointed out a classics head an an animated body looks off.

    I'd say colour code it add some new arm parts (since you can do that with Arcee and maybe change some other parts and you've got yourself a deal.

    I will say this I really like the proportions with the long legs

    When will people learn the Animated aesthetic just doesn't work for non-Animated bots, no matter how much you'd like them to?
    In all fairness this looks halfway decent, much better than some other attempts I've seen, but in the end you're placing a more generic looking robot head onto a cartoon figure's body.

    Her face is horrible. This thing is a bad idea. It looks like hell.

    Also, does anyone who owns Animated Arcee really want to completely spoil her appearance by sticking this gargoyle looking lump of plastic on her? And spend money doing so?

    Exactly.
