    QFT :cool:  That said, after searching every day for two weeks now (I knew she was coming, but didn't know when exactly--and neither did the unhelpful crew at TRU), I finally struck gold today! :D  One thing that I noticed and don't know if it's been commented on, but I thought it was interesting how much the final toy changed from the prototype which is still on the back of the box. The front of the car (which becomes her legs of course) is much blunter/blockier in the proto than the final--something I'm grateful that they changed b/c the slim version is much sexier. Anyway, the color of the toy is perfect MUCH better in person, even. I personally have always hated Arcee as a character, but even I like this toy. If you're lucky enough to find it, buy it--it's what you want.

    Can someone post a photo of Arcee with City Commander, Classics Hot Rod, and Cybertron Blurr?

    I don't own city commander or cybertron blurr, but hopefully the photo below will do.

    i wondered the same thing.. you just have to push them in a little bit more than it seems, they click into place very nicely... just be a little rough with her ;)

    Hey question, the little tab on the back of my Arcee's left knee joint doesn't really tab into the car hood to close up flush with the inner car hood surface (in robot mode). Is this common to all Arcee's? I don't really want to shave the tab in case it prevents the car hood from sealing up properly, and I also don't really want to force it into the hood.

    Oddly Kapow only have the Japanese version for sale, so I guess I'll have to plump for that. She does look great though...

    I painted the lips on mine, and she looks even hotter! Femmebottie Hottie!!! :drool:  :lol 

    Overall, she's just so damn awesome. My fave Animated toy yet, and maybe my fave TF buy in YEARS. Only Animated Rodimus can come close to topping her for me... if we ever get him, that is. lol

    Thanks for the pics. Unfortunately, they confirm my belief that Arcee is not really compatible with non-Animated toys because of her oversized head. :(

    I actually think she looks pretty good with non-Animated figs, but to each their own.

    Here's some more pics - for scale and fun:

    Some '86 Movie goodness...

    I re-fitted her for fun with Classics 2.0 Sunstreaker's gun. Looks pretty good!

    True, Arcee doesn't fit in that well as the G1 or Classics Arcee some want her to be, but looking at some of these doesn't make Arcee's head too big as much as it makes Rodimus' head look too small.

    ... to me anyway.

    Yeah, I agree man. Next to Animated Arcee, Classics Rodimus does look like the witch doctor in Beetlejuice got a hold of him. :lol

    I still can't find one. If anyone does I'll make it worth their time.
