You know, if someone cut the Robots in Disguise Arcee's cannon up, from the barrel about a 1/3 of the way back, and hollowed out the underside...I'm pretty sure you would end up with a slide-on arm cannon just like she uses in the show.

Someone. Make haste.

Actually the Weaponizer version looks to be accurate in both color and molding but it looks like the chest might be fake again. Though I don't actually have a problem with there being a fake windshield. I have a problem with the fact that the real one is directly behind it. I want to cut out the fake windshields and just leave the framing so the arms can still move on that assembly without having to cover the windshield up. If the real windshield ended up on his back like it does with RID Scourge I wouldn't care but it's actually on his chest covered up by a needless fake.

If you happen to have more than one Arcee, you can stack guns together using the blade mount hole for a comically ginormagantuan weapon.

Picked up the PRIDE Arcee, and I LOVE her! The backpack is annoying, and glaringly there, but she's a lot simpler, and more fun, IMHO, to transform. I have the FE Arcee via NYCC two pack, I HATE trying to transform that or the Bee (though I should retry again), but I actually enjoy the PRIDE's transformation. I also love the BFG, I thought I'd hate it, initially, but it's freakin' fun; I also was bothered by the notion of having only one of her arm blades, but I got over that real quick when I made her arm blade an arm guard of sorts.

I dig it, recommend trying it out, if you don't like it, you can return it, but I know I'm keeping mine, AND I'm gonna be snagging the Arms Micron one for the Minicon.

I've got my RID Arcee last week at Target. She's pretty amazing!

While she has her own share of flaws I'd say she's just as good as the FE figure. Though she gets points for having more arm aritclation,blue foreamrs and a better looking and cute face to boot!

I love how the big complaint at the FE is the big heels, which actually help make for fantastic posing, and are about the only true inaccuracy of it's look. The RID version has a boatload of inaccuracies from the gappy, mis-shapen chest, massive back kibble, and incorrect running lights kibble in both modes. And colours aside the RID's arms are just as square as the FE. Even on a technical level the RID version falls flat in some respects, like not hiding the thigh swivel, no wrist swivel, and the chest windows people are so quick to swoon over are upside down.

The only thing I do not agree with the above is that the RID mould sucks. It doesn't. Had the FE not existed people would find this more than acceptable. But the FE does exist. And it's going to be judged, and overall it isn't as good, but still good. I plan on getting it despite owning the FE.
