    1. Does anyone how how many pieces this is limited to?

    I am trying to hold out until a price drop happens but do not want to wait too long and miss out. Especially since these are selling on Ebay for $140.:crazy: 


    2. For those who purchased her that said they were going to exchange/return her to BBTS were you able to without any problems?

    Specifically were you able to exchange for a better one? Or did you return her for store credit?

    I am planning on buying two of them hoping that this will increase my odds of getting a good one and then returning the second one that has poor quality control.

    Just curious what the return/exchange experience has been for items that have bad QC.

    Thanks for your help!

    I think if you will hold out for a price drop you will be paying more then $140

    G3 Trailer did, and while I'm not sure if the price will stick or not, BBTS knocked $40 off their stock of DIA Commander trailers. Admittedly, those two were somewhat more niche productions.

    I'm still waiting for someone to start clearancing those Perfect Effect swords. I can't imagine that those are selling all that well.

    Soon as hasbro releases pics of their Arcee and fembots, if any are still in stock of em at that time, the prices will drop, or spike. Depending on how good the hasbro one is.

    Until then, who knows, but I doubt these will sell out till that pic or prototype surfaces.

    I really want this figure but $70 for a figure that pictures of have not been all that encouraging for well just. SUCKS!

    I will pick up Fansproject Swindle instead.

    I wouldn't pay more than $20 for that bad KO quality turd.

    However, I can't see the market bottoming out on it - it's only going to get more pricey.

    They pretty much did, but this is the only animated Arcee that we have to work with. The animated one doesnt do it for me, Im waiting for it hit $40 and i'll bite, $70 is way too much.

    I actually like mine. She does not have that bad of a paint app, and tyhe addition of red lips via a gundam marker helped her amazingly well.

    I like her so much I plan on getting another one.

    I am plying with the idea of nightbird becoming shatterd glass arcee, but cant bring myself to pay 150 bucks for her.

    She is the best G1 esque arcee we are likely to see for awhile, and she really is not that bad. She should not cost 70, but if you wait she will only cost more I bet.

    I'm pretty sure BBTS is the only one carrying it besides the sellers ripping people off on Ebay.

    Has anyone had luck exchanging/returning theirs to BBTS without trouble?

    Do we have any clue when Hasbro is supposed to reveal their Arcee?

    They mentioned at botcon, and in otfcc that 'fembots' are in the works, alongside Kup. Fembots is a fancy way of saying arcee and lots of repaints.

    So probably sometime in 2011, Doubt it'll take till 2012. Definitely probably in generations sometime after Tracks, Jazz, and co. Probably same wave as Kup, to round out the Movie bots since blur has already been done.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if Arcee and Kup were two of the CAD slides Hasbro was not permitted to show per their PR liaison.

    I also wouldn't be surprised if Arcee was a scout, like Windcharger.

    I'm hoping she's deluxe. Probably is deluxe tbh too, easier to repaint and slot deluxes in a line than scouts.

    The real question is which arcee though.
    IDW, G1, etc.

    I'd be happy with either size, but Lockdown proves they know how to get the height of the next-larger size class out of a car altmode.

    I thought it was just a rumor, but if Hasbro does release a Generations Arcee I would be all about that. Still though I would like to get this version it's just the QC scaring me away I gladly paid $70 for FP's Springer.

    Well, not all sellers are trying to rip people off. Most are just auctioning her off and seeing how high the price climbs. Nothing wrong with that. There is an obvious demand (and a lack of research on the buyer's part). Now I do take offense to sellers setting a BIN/Best Offer Price at $150 or higher. That is nuts.

    While she is not worth $70, I feel the current demand is a sign of things to come. I wouldn't wait for a price drop if you are serious about getting one.
