    It's based on a scene where she uses it very briefly in the movie. She uses them as binoculars, sighting Hot Rod and Kup as they enter the borders of Autobot City.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that. They should use it more, I think it looks pretty neat.

    You're right, they turn them into humans wearing bodypaint, bikinis, AND a little bit of armor.
    It's funny. I don't remember anyone having an issue with WFC Arcee's sculpted buttcheeks.

    I've seen some nice interpretations of that design. 722d198b6f39b6a3766cf1f148886f68.jpg

    As a random statue, it looks neat. It doesn't look like a Transformer, or Arcee, or like it belongs in the same series as the other Imaginarium Art TF statues. But it looks neat.

    Edit: For some reason I can't post images. Only been a member of the forums for 13 years. Gotta have that cooldown period to prevent bots I guess?

    Anyone know the release date? Which scale did they decide on? I’m getting her either way.

    Well, this project took a weird sideways move.

    Well, with the casual approach of 3P companies (licensed or otherwise) regarding release dates...

    What are fans supposed to do? IMHO this arcee statue is gorgeous. Has a real Ralph McQuerrie vibe to it.
    In fact, when comparing this sculpt to their Devastator, Autobots, Seekers, etc. Arcee looks like they outside contracted.
    All traces of her have disappeared from their website.
    Maybe the artist just decided to hawk it off?
    To "PlayCool"?
    Though the new colors are a bit off.
    Didn't want to risk not getting this.
    So i put in a deposit; fingers crossed I'm successful as the order date had lapsed.

    Have to hand it to KO corporations though.
    I've purchased BOTH Hasbro SS Constructicons as well as the Aoyi Mech versions.
    The knockoffs are superior. This applies to the Nemesis Prime variant of SS38!

    Not a big fan of the final colouration. Even as a less convertible looking Arcee the colours look weird, like the cut off line for the “shoe” makes the shin look kinda awkward when they earlier had the boot look that worked far better. The pink is also too dark for the way too human-coloured face. I would’ve much preferred the original colour layout they had.

    Still looks decent, but I think it’s a definite step down from the renders.

    For those that still fancy the original renders, add $120 for an accompanying "prototype" at 1/2 size (30x18x22cm)

    So you get both! Plus a 24K gold plated coin.

    As I mentioned in my post, I was referring to the original coloured render, not the grey prototype.

    The weird colouring is because this is no longer an official product, and a license dodge instead. She's not "Arcee". She's a "robot police officer" as per the item description.

    I gotcha. I just find it odd that they changed the colour set so much when, honestly speaking, this barely looks like any established version of Arcee anyway. The colours are still clearly Arcee, it’s just the fact that not only are they done differently, but they’re done worse that’s boggling my mind.

    I prefer the original version on the first page. The flesh colored face is oddly off putting. How much is this supposed/speculated to be?

    How does licensing for something this expensive fall through? Someone definitely fucked up.

    @bman29 in SE Asia, the singular, colored figure is USD$599, and the 2-pack goes for $725.
