the confusion continues
i'm so confused you could tell me i already own the 3rd bike right now and I would believe you
As long as they release the third bike and she combines with the two current bikes, I will be happy. They can call her whatever they want, just release her already.
As far as I am concerned, the third bike is Arcee. So is the blue and the pink. They are all Arcee. If I HAVE to give them individual names, then this one is Arcee since the first movie line Arcee was purple.
I really hope that they give her a new mold. I know Hasbro loves repaints but her design art is so wonderful I would hate to see them ignore it.
Here is a random thought...what if Flare Up is a repaint and Elita-1 is a new mold?
I dont care about the name anymore ... I just want a release date for the toy!
I prefer Elita-1 simply because our own Elita One here is HOT! And she reminds me of her...
I'll believe it when I've got the toy in my hands. Might be that Flareup was the intended name but Hasbro could not trademark it. It's been nearly five years since it was used, something could have come up.
I have figured out the starting point of the combination, though. Arcee in robot mode, Chromia in bike mode. That allows the connectors to come together properly. Not sure where to go from there without the result looking like a mess, though.
I'm not far behind you at this point.
Mystery solved. Nice.

"Hasbro says lots of things."
I remember making a thread on the third bike possibly being Elita-1. Boy, am I surprised that my thought was confirmed to be correct. YAYS! *happydance*
The name Flareup doesn't go well with a 'purple' bike... it's just slaggin' ridiculous! It's a flame name, not a violet name.
I prefer Flareup myself.
I am more confused than ''happy dance''
I don't care what it's called, I just want it released.
Btw. Somebody mentioned it couldn't be Elita because she died comic-verse-wise.
Well, I believe Smokescreen bought it too. Yet, we have a deluxe release. I don't think
the comic has any bearing upon anything except the comic.
How is it we cant even get a single pic of the combined mode for the sisters concept or otherwise.
They arent still developing it. Its been done for a while what the hell are these ass hats waiting for.
As much as I dislike the individual bike modes the combined mode im very interested in and may be the only reason I buy any of these molds.
BTW how do they not include instructions for the combined mode ???
yeah, but smokescreen wasn't in the movie, just in the toyline and in the comics as Incinerator, Dreadwing and others
mmm maybe hasbro is going to release both Elita-1 and Flareup... being one the so called "chromia repaint" and the other the third bike from team arcee (but I don't think hasbro would do something like that...)
Correct me if I am wrong...but does that not take place in a comic...not in the actual movies in which they don't exactly follow everything that happens in the comics?
Technically they can call her whatever they want, regardless of what we wish it to be.
as far as i know, the movie's are one story, the comic prequels and adaptations and sequels are an alternate take on the movie story...since events happen differently...so if she's elita-1 that's cool...and like someone said, even if she is a different character, she can have the same name...no biggie...
Separate names with a comma.
