    This is a small nitpick, but I think the tip of the car's nose is a bit small. They could have made the dark part larger and paint a part of the pink nose white (even a little larger than in my pic, too lazy to redo it).
    Other than that, I like it, not a perfect Arcee, but the best so far.

    It doesn't bother me too much because it's such a small part, but you're right.

    That's something that bugs me about most FansToys engineering. They rely on accordion folding and telescoping-style joints far too often, ruining the appearance of what should be contiguous surfaces.

    It would be nice seeing updated pics of her robot mode too! ;)

    Wow! Alt mode looks fantastic! Really psyched for this one!

    I mean honestly there's a lot wrong with the alt mode. It's too wide, especially the back end with the center section (hood, cab, center of rear section) too narrow. The windshield is way too small and it's like it has skinny little motorcycle seats in a car's cab section.

    Despite that, Arcee is a figure where you're never going to be able to get away with not making compromises. Since they have to compromise, I'm glad they compromised the alt mode more than the robot mode. Maybe I'll use a Wei Jiang Alcee for alt mode next to FT's bot mode.

    They can't really do anything at this point. It would involve re designing the whole front and transformation sequence, which would push back release date

    I'm happy with the way it turned out. I'm all in.

    The only thing they need to change is the release date. To an earlier one that is.

    I agree on the alt mode flaws, and I can accept most of its compromises because of the better bot mode, although the front bothers me because I think it could have been changed easily.

    I know it's late for changes, but the last time I checked, the nose was mistransformed and the tip was hidden, and before that, it looked better in the render (in fact, while similar, all the render looks better to me).

    Anyway, I was not talking about redesigning the whole front and transformation, just molding the black details longer and painting some white on the pink part.

    I... don’t think the altmode is that great. I also don’t usually use altmode so that’s fine.
    That being said, I don’t know, it’s a little early to tell but I think MMC may have got em on the altmode.
    I don’t think botmode is even a contest though.

    I don't think any of them got the alt mode right. But yeah, most of us are not in because of the alt mode.

    The only thing that can sway me towards the MMC's version is if Daniel turns into a HM.

    A 4th party headmaster Daniel figure would be great if none of the companies decide to do it.
