    No, its not the Impossible Toys Arcee. I think its that other "fan made" custom that was shown several months ago. Looking at this prototype, looks like they might be taking it to production, as that looks like plastic.

    Edit:
    Was reading a rough translation of the original thread. Looks like its a test shot. Funny thing I found is that most of the replies are negative about it.

    Lol. Actually, alot of them don't like the face, and think it looks like a GI Joe figure. Plus, some had issues with the proportions.

    A friend of mine from one of the 3rd party groups told me that igear was looking into producing this Arcee, a couple months ago. Seeing this new photo, might mean that it was true, or someone else is producing it now.

    I think the Impossible Toys Arcee is much better for a G1 collection/display. This one, is to in between G1 and Classics to work for either, in my opinion.

    This one appears to be one of the better ones so far to me. I'm curious about what looks like metal parts here

    Could be indication for the parts that will be made in diecast? But upon closer inspection, it looks like its painted silver, as the grooves on the chest have green bits still.

    Does it even transform? It looks great as a show-accurate Arcee robot mode, but it doesn't look like it has the physical space or parts to transform. It'd be nice to be wrong, I guess.

    Interesting. It looks alright, more like a non-transforming action figure though.

    Edit: woah, just saw the colored version right after my post and it does look really good! So now what is this exactly??

    When the colored prototype photos showed up, it was known to be a fan made custom. At the time, the creator was looking for interest from other fans, to see if they would want it mass produced. The new photo, with her in green, looks like a test casting from a possible steel mold. So she could be going into production? The original thread about her doesn't say really what is going on.

    I remember that figure. It's really great looking. Shame its popularity has kinda dwindled.
