    For ordering, please either PM or visit this thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/commi...ustom-classic-universe-arcee-upgrade-kit.html. "PMed" type of posts will simply be deleted (meaning that you may not get your order filled). ~TFW2005.com/Radicons Staff

    ** updated Dec 30 **
    As for the upgrade kit, the head is designed to match the ball joint of the original animated Arcee, no modification is needed for the effect showed below. You could easily switch between the classic one and animated one.

    If you enjoy TF custom. You could repaint it the way you like (I changed the feet and hip to make it more IDW style). Following photos are my try.

    As I mentioned, I want to put a sexy, strong, even a little bad female warrior Arcee (not the doll-like female bot) into the classic toys.

    I didn't paint the lip of her, although I designed it to be painted, but I liked unpainted too. if you want it painted, please let me know.

    pm me for the price :) 


    ** Dec 29**

    Arcee is definitely not a favorite character of Hasbro's toy designer. The only official transformable toy is the animated one, which is good toys itself, but not good to put into my favorite classic/universe line.

    So here is my version of classic/universe Arcee. Hope you like it.

    If you like my design, upgrade kit is now available (head and guns), so you could upgrade you own animated Arcee into universe/classic Arcee.

    please pm me for the price if you are interested.


    Compared with the character in G1 cartoon, I think the Arcee from the IDW comic book is more attractive, an enraged female autobot, killing everyone who dare to challenge her.

    for the head sculpture, I want to keep the feeling of a female autobot warrior while adding some sexy elements from the following fan’s artwork.

    I think the head sculpt looks great. Looks a little little more sinister though. I don't really want to upgrade my arcee but you did such a great job I would buy just cause it looks cool.

    VERY nicely done! Damn if that doesn't totally bring out the character. This is probably the best update of this particular toy mold I've seen so far!

    I could nit-pick, but it'd all be based on personal preference.

    That looks outstanding though. I'm seriously convinced to picking up Animated Arcee now. Damn you. Haha

    Its amazing that a toy from one line can fit into another with a simple remold of the head, a new paint job and with the addition of guns. Arcee looks so much better next to Springer and Blurr now, she fits right in!

    I kinda have to agree with Dominomist - with her sharp chin and vicious smirk she looks... almost Decepticon-ish. But it's a huge improvement over the current one. (Not to be unpopular sounding but I never got into Animated - after going from Cybertron and the Movies they just looks a little too blocky and cartoony. I still picked up Animated Arcee to stand her with the classics line, and the head really makes her fit in more. One question - if shes molded after killer IDW Arcee, can she come painted with the purple lipstick?

    SWEEET! I knew someone would knock this out of the park eventually!

    Proves that the mold is pretty much perfect with a new noggin'

    You have some interesting ideas about "attractive", son - your love life must be hilarious. :p 

    The TFA Arcee wasn't available here, but I never bothered getting many of the Animated figs anyway. But my word, you're making me want her now...

    Out of curiosity, in the pics comparing your upgraded figure with the original version, the new one looks a little taller. Did you do anything different to her legs, or is that just an optical illusion?
