    I've got Rouge and Azalea and I have MP Arcee pre-ordered. I'm sure someone else will have some comparison shots uploaded before mine arrives but I'll definitely be doing some shots with all the Arcee figures I own.

    Nope. Absolutely not.

    However I will give ALL THE LIKES to the person who does buy one, puts one of the Alien Masks on her, snaps a photo, then takes a shot with it off, and then finally a third photo and includes The Office's "It's the same picture" meme.


    She is absolutely ugly on all accounts. More power to the peeps who continue to support the line tho!

    I like her alt mode and she looks cleaner with the nice toon paint, I have her on PO but my definitive Arcee would be Rouge if I can get my hands on one

    One could argue that a transformer's chest section is the most important and identifiable design element of their entire look. Especially if the chest is comprised of the front section of their alt mode.

    First off, it's dead center, and it's a very large area. The face is only really important if viewing the figure up close. Whenever I look at my figures, their chest is the first thing that my eye focuses on. Granted, most tfers are male-bots, and their chests tend to be very wide and pronounced.

    I'm looking at all of my mp figures, and most of them don't have weird looking chests. (In comparison to their cartoon model) There's mp10, but the window pecs are more like the g1 toy look. Mp Sideswipe is one, as his car hood is very large. But again, at least it looks like his g1 toy. Mp Hot Rod's chest isn't great as well. And that killed my enjoyment of the figure.

    Arcee never had a g1 toy. (except that hideous prototype thing) I don't intend on ever owning the mp Arcee, as her weird chest design will always rub me the wrong way.

    Maybe someone will release an upgrade kit, like that Mp Ironhide hip kibble thing.

    Yeah, I mean, I don't think the figure is perfect, but to date I still feel it is by far the best Arcee figure. When people go on about how awful it is to transform it sounds like they have never transformed any other Fanstoys figure. More than half of the others from FT I have had were more of a pain to transform. I'll give her fiddly, but definitely not terrible.

    I just keep scratching my head.

    And I am STILL waiting for someone to do the "it's the same picture" meme from The Office with MP-51 and another Transformer with the Alien Mask.


    She is absolutely, so insanely ugly. Just ... I don't get it. She looks like a complete meme:

    1.) Alien, bug-eyed face
    2.) Huge backpack
    3.) Tiny (bEcAuSe gUuRlS sHoUlD bE sHoRtEr)
    4.) Clubbed feet (does she have mumps?)
    5.) Squat, short alt mode
    6.) That extremely terrible chest


    There is more, but like, no. Just .. no.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

    Derp, lol.
    Agreed, though I do like her car mode's overall shape, it's more curvy in the right spots versus FTs.
    But yeah, that robot mode is garbage, that chest is the absolute biggest issue and renders the robot mode completely inferior to anything else. Zeta's offering looks better.

    I'll be getting mine on Friday. First call of business is to see how easy that chest is to remove

    Although I think the "beauty", for a lot of people, is simply that she's the official one. If Takara's Arcee mold had come from a 3rd party, very few people would be giving it the time of day.

    Not my pics(Forgot who posted these but if you know them please give credit) but IMO the official head is so much better especially on Rouges body. Screenshot_20201229-000738_Gallery.jpg Polish_20201228_222517568.jpg

    Personally, I like the look and stature of Rouge but I think the face sculpt on the MMC looks most like the animation. I’m sure the official one will have a smoother transformation.

    It’s nice to have options though.

    Pretty much this. Also don't forget the AJP discount.
