    No, I'm not joking at all. To be clear, I have no issue with either figure, or even that add-on set for Rogue. I'm really just playing devil's advocate here, regarding the censorship of this figure.

    I don't recall the Firebird Arcee ever being nude, however I haven't really kept up with this topic so maybe new images have surfaced? I thought the initial images just showed her from some provocative angles and there was an implication that some of her armor might be removable.

    I would have to assume more young people visit the front page than the 3rd Party sub-forum. I would also argue that the gray prototype images of BA make her actually appear to be topless, or course that will probably change when painted, but the prototype images pretty much look nude.

    As I said earlier, I just find it humorous how controversial this figure seemed to be just a few weeks ago yet now we have robonipples on the front page. This topic got locked down, then reopened under the conditions that no one could post images or videos and everyone was to tread lightly or it would be locked down again. It even warranted a visit from the site owner to explain the staff decisions.

    PS: love the avatar

    I thought it was pretty clear from proto images that this Arcee does not removable chest armor.

    Yeah, that pic looks very much like a solid torso piece without removable armor.

    There is a possibility that she comes with a second torso piece, molded sans chest armor. We don't know yet.

    It's always good to have options.

    I suppose that's true but we have little reason to expect it. There was that one render where she had her hand placed over her breast but, given the look of the renders, is difficult to say whether her armor was removed and, even if it were, that doesn't mean the toy will have that option. I can render my WIP custom minifig without her clothes but I'm not making them removable, nor does she have any "bits" under them.

    Also shit I wasn’t notified by the blackarachnia stuff. Seems to be over now.

    Well see I doubted that theory since the reveal of the torso piece ages back. It looks like it was a solid piece between the arms and head. So I don’t think you could swap that out easy.

    i don't think you can tell if the armor comes off or not from that pic, to be honest we've seen plenty of "oh snap that moves, comes off, or this hidden panel" on plenty of transformers

    I know this has nothing do with the current topic OR Arcee, but with the company in general. Did anyone else see that art with the red motorbike girl as the Pig for New Years? adorable, and i want that as a toy, too!


    ...i want everything this group does!

    FB arcee didnt have the removable top. The thing you're thinking of is a add-on for Fantoys Rouge.

    their original concept images beg to differ and is part of what led us to the slippery slope that this thread is actually the 11 30 pic is what drives the idea home where she's in her hands, the armor is missing, there are raised elements "armor" missing that her hands would't be able to block the view of on the side or from the top

    This. I can't post the image here. There is a pic from the side without the armor.

    Ahh, I hadn't seen those pictures.

    I wonder if the FT Rouge kit is somehow tied to this then. *rubs chin*

    No. DenToys, who did the Rogue "add on" are actually a subset of FansToys. They always intended those kits to go together. They just didn't want to use their FT name.
