She is a great figure for what she is. That being a Pink PRIME Arcee. Other than that I agree with the following statement.

I'm willing to bet she's near the top of Hasbro's "To do" list anyway, so you'd be blowing $30+ on an unacceptable short-term stand-in.

Doesn't really fit with Classics stuff IMO, but if you want one might as well get it. They won't stay on HTS forever (probably ), and won't get cheaper once they're sold out.

She works for me as at the least a stand in. I don't feel the same way about the animated one. And anything else is a little more than I'm willing to shell out for an Arcee. So I say yes grab her for your classics.

I hope so once Classics takes a break from Fall of Cybertron molds.

Not for the purpose of a Classics Arcee.

The only other very good option is Animated Arcee, but she goes for about as much as NYCC Arcee and Bumblebee do together on HTS, and I don't think she'd fit in with my collection nearly as well. Would you recommend that I get her?
i got the set...and i think arcee is awesome...no problems at all with joints and her paint apps are excellent...you can always sell the taxi bee if you don't want to keep him and that will offset the cost some $$$.

If you like her, then get her. I've waited on getting figures before and then kicked myself when they were no longer available at a reasonable price. (Henkei Optimus; why does he cost almost as much as MP-10???)

Yeah, just get it even if it's not really of the Classics-type, it's a great figure/redeco. I sometimes see loose mint ones on Ebay going for reasonable prices. Or you can get the whole boxed set with Bumblebee, pretty cool display if you ask me...
