    Would be nice to get a official G1 Arcee from hasbro, the animated version isnt bad looking. That hidious looking binaltech Takara made is sad. Impossible toys made the Quints right? They all looked pretty bad ass and there prices wern't too bad for them.. If the price is right ill get her and my WST blaster and shockwave from Justitoys..

    I don't know. On one hand I've always felt that their products were rather mediocre... not bad, but not great you know (certainly not anywhere near third party groups like FansProject anyways)... ,however, this is G1 Arcee (which Hasbro seems so loath to actually let happen officially) so I'm going to have to see more of this before I decide whether or not I'll bite. Price would be a pretty big decision maker for me as well consider that Animated Arcee is pretty close (and I have no problem mixing aesthetics on my shelf) and will be much cheaper when she's released. So... overall this is really going to have to wow me to get my money.

    Now that is a Arcee! None of that other sh*t we have seen up to now, I am sold and by looking at those seats I bet diacone drivers or the spike and Sparkplug they make fit. I have many of there products and I know first hand the quality is high. So I have no worry that this baby will fill the need I have had since 1986.

    I don't want an overpriced fan made piece of crap!

    Hasbro bastards know this figure is in demand but refuses to make her. Every time I see a motorcycle Arcee or Animated or Binaltech I get pissed off. If I had the power I'd force Hasbro to make this figure. ASSHOLES!!!!:mad

    How cute. You know there's sufficient market demand for an Arcee figure to make one exactly how you like it.

    Impossible Toy's prices have always been great for fan made stuff. Like their famous Quint figures are $20 each. I'm sure other groups would charge over $40 for them easily. I expect them to be fair for this Arcee figure's price.

    Aaaaaaand Cease and Desist in 3, 2, 1 ...

    I mean really -- that takes balls to put out a G1 Arcee at the SAME time as Hasbro is (allegedly) releasing a G1-styled Animated Arcee. If Hasbro's gonna C&D anyone, they'd have to start with these guys.

    The prototype doesn't look so hot, either.

    G1-styled Animated Arcee? Well do you think it looks Animated or G1 cause it cant be both? the Hasbro one to me does not look G1, Also what does not look hot, its a wip prototype picture.

    Uh... another cyberfembot? The transformation pattern is identical to previous fan made attempts (all based on that japanese custom shown at Botcon Japan 98), I wouldn't mind a bit of creativity here.

    Wating to see what happens later. But this Arcee is a G1 prototype, so Universe line? Or I could be totally off. Lets see. Really excited for now.

    I've got the Quint Judge, Scientist, and Prosecutor and I've gotta say I like IT's stuff. Assuming that the bot mode looks good, I'll probably pick this up.

    I will buy this if for no other reason than to send Hasbro the message that they're idiots for not making a G1 Arcee figure.

    I was thinking the same. I'd be happier just to see one where the rear end of the car mode doesn't look like a pair of severed thighs. :)
