    I'm doing something similar! Only I'm converting her into a whole new character.

    I like the head swap. And the white abs help everything blend.

    The aesthetics actually work surprisingly well for an Animated-to-Classics move. Where'd you get the head?

    I think she looks pretty good. A little sloppy maybe, but good. Are you finished painting her?

    You could probably resize your pics a bit before you upload them, too... Ouch...

    SWEET

    She's gonna fit in with classics ALOT better than I'd even hoped! I was afraid she was going to be like Blurr and just be way too big. Excellent.

    My only critique would be to use a more girly shade of pink, closer to the color of her face.


    Now I just have to find her. Freakin' store exclusives. I swear. The only store that gets it right is Target.

    I think this figure fits in with the Classics line almost perfectly. I think an arm mod to further match the aesthetic would work.

    Very nice, this may be the only Animated figure i buy, im with you in not liking this line of toys. BTW, just like every one else is asking, where did you get the head. It makes the whole figure look so much better, but new arms would finish it off.

    Yes. Awesome I'm totally planning on doing this if I could ever get my hands on one. I however was planning on changing the hands as well.

    Very awesome, I'd suggest some more white on the legs and arms though, and toss in ROTF Brawns guns for her dualies. Just paint them silver and black and you have perfection.

    Also, where can I get that head?

    I'm still not convinced that the Animated mold/design works as a G1 representation of Arcee. Sorry, I'm not quite feeling this as others are.

    Who knows, maybe going over it entirely with a new paint scheme will help some. It still has those undeniably Animated design aspects however.

    The hands are all that stick out to me as animated. Though her forearms, and thighs need to be white to really reflect the G1 Fembot.

    The dualies would help hide the fingers though to evoke a more G1 feel.

    Does the head hinder transformation at all?
    White thighs would be hidden inside the car hood, so that won't change the outside appearance, but the arms would give her a white back top with the hand 'guards' being the connecting pink piece across the back to her back wheel covers.

    I would have made her abs area the same color as her face tbh, her hands too

    I agree to a point. I think the mold with the head is an amazing start. I think some painting of the body could go a LONG way.

    The hands are a part of it, but there's certainly much more than just that.

    The lower legs kill it for me. It's redeemable with some work though.

    The thing that gets me most about this being "Animated" and very much not a G1 representation is her 6th grade figure. She looks like a robotic 12 year old. I'm sorry, but there has to be more curves on a Fembot. Or else we'd call them TeamEdwardbots or "zomg<3JustinBieber"bots or something.

    If someone can make it work, then they deserve all the credit and praise. As is, I don't see it.
