    Paint looks really sloppy, hopefully that's just the proto.

    APC has been shown to release several redecos of their previous stuff. I wonder if they will do an all pink one, Flare Up, and Flamewar.

    Deposit only, full price unknown at this time. Wonder where it will land.

    Love APC Megs and Shiny OP so I'm interested if the price is right, even though I have FE and RID Arcees, I just love Prime toys too much.

    It's really annoying that they didn't downscale her or reposition her wings because she looks phenomenal otherwise. Without those things being fixed I can't really justify getting her.

    I always thought the 2nd version had a better design. Especially if you repaint it.

    Poor choice, APC...
    I didn't think the First Edition Arcee was that good of a figure, as I vastly prefer the PRiD version.

    Wish they’d go further and improve the wings + back kibble

    Ah, that’s a shame. I’m sure it’ll look great as a standalone piece, but as part of a collection, there’s a reason I went with PRID over First Edition Arcee back in the day.

    I've never been able to get any version of prime arcee so this will have to do. I'd be down for them doing a Solus Prime repaint tho, snatch that up in a minute.

    The only good thing about FE Arcee was her legs. Everything else the PRID version does better. Good for those who missed out on her initially though.

    Pre-ordered thinking this was an MP take but I’ll keep the order and see how it looks before deciding if she stays or goes.
    Actually looks like this is already incoming as of today, I only just saw this yesterday and hastily put in my order, hopefully comes in under the gun before CNY

    Kinda sad they went with the FE mold. It's waaay too tall and just not a fun figure. The PRID mold is still one of my favorite femmbot molds.

    I'm the opposite, as accurate as the PRID figures can be, I find the first editions more fun because I prefer more involved transformations

    Was on the fence yesterday, added to my cart and then decided I would go ahead and pick it up since I've loved Prime and Megs. Didn't have a chance to checkout until now, and the price went up $4 ($43.99). I already felt like $39.99 was pushing it. So now I am back on the fence, I'll wait for some reviews/feedback.

    If you're thinking that hard about it, then it's obvious you want it. $4 really isn't that much, so if you were ok (or even almost ok) at $40, I think you'll still enjoy it at $44.

    I know I'm splitting hairs I was just annoyed when I saw it today. Still going to wait and see what baba's price will be, I'm not in a huge rush on this one.

    I am pretty sure there will be a lot of reviews very soon. I will share some once I find them (very likely at bilibili first).
