    They're smaller, roughly Legends-ish size. (Bumblebee is a couple heads shorter than his SS figure)

    They also took away my favorite part from her head design, the antenna.

    Yea. Guessing because of the amount of short and last min some of the characters have reused parts from other models she had one and was reused from shatters.

    I don't think it was a matter of model reuse given her head is otherwise entirely unique, I think she had an antenna because she was trying to contact the capitol in her one scene.

    More pre-painted parts than I was expecting. (a lot of times with kits like these there's only like 2 or 3). Definitely more interested than I was before.

    Still not a fan of that face design.
    To me it looks like an elderly china doll.
    A very creased, segmented one.

    I know people aren't a fan of that face but it's become very clear that was the intent when she was designed and it just didn't come through in her brief time on camera compared to all of the concept art.

    It's also still leagues better than some Bay-designed faces. I can actually tell what I'm looking at here.

    Her face never looked odd to me. It looks fine.

    I like the more alien Decepticon faces. It works to make them seem more menacing and alien while the human faces of the Autobots help convey more emotion so it's easier to sympathize with them.

    And I'm very sure her face in ROTB will look a lot better because they got time and she'll be in the whole movie.

    I'd like a film where we can sympathize with & condemn people from either side. I think it's time we moved away from depicting the Deceps as (largely) ruthless space Nazi moustache twirlers with but a smattering of honorable, Con defector archetypes sprinkled in. I prefer the notion that people from every conceivable walk of life occupy both factions. That, there's Decepticons who're good natured souls & Autobots who're irredeemable pricks, with so very much in-between. Greyness is what I'd wish to see. But, I'm veering off topic. Arcee's face feels off because, well, this is probably my inner Bruce Timm talking, I think most fembots should have conventionally beautiful faces. Y'know? Pin up queen gorgeous. Just like how most male TFs have chiseled, statuesque mugs. I know I'm usually complaining about a need for change, but I'm still able to act very old school fan boy at times. Outliers? Absolutely. Lugnut needs to remain a big mouthed, multi eyed monstrosity (look it up he has five eyes). That said, yeah, I'ma clamour for supermodel faced Cee.

    I wonder if you could swap this head onto the SS figure without too much issue.
