    I keep trying to work out if the red Aprilia we've seen Megan Fox riding is Arcee, but I'm sure she's on an RS125 which is tiny compared to a Suzuki B-King (Chromia). Anybody know?

    The combined Arcee robot doesn't conform to the standard two arms/two legs configuration... from the concept art I saw that the comic was based on, it was just a mish mash of vehicle and robot parts, rolling on either one wheel or two, with a gun arm. The head never changes from individual bots to the combined form, I think. The concept art indicated that the combined form could take on several different configurations depeneding on what bike went where, but I don't know how much (or if any) of it will be seen on screen.

    I hope some one busts out a review of Arcee soon. And sadly with her not scheduled for October we have a long wait for the purple bike.

    Hasbro has stated that the third purple cycle (maybe Moonracer) will be released, and the 3 (Arcee, Chromia, unnamed) would combine. It was stated in the Q&A at Botcon last weekend. But Hasbro also said that, them combining was cut from the film. Along with Autobot Springer.

    And Stiggz79, I believe that the red cycle Megan Fox is riding is Arcee. That's only a guess. I'm guessing because one of the upcoming Human Alliance sets is with Skids, Arcee, and Mikaela. But, that's far from confirmation.

    You'd think that Hasbro would try and get the onscreen characters out sooner rather than later while the momentum of the movie is in full swing, and then release the new characters and repaints later just to keep things bubbling along. Kids, in particular, would want to buy the bike bots after seeing them in action, but 4 to 6 months later they're just not going to be half as exciting hanging on a peg in a shop.

    Well, I don't think buying 3 Arcees or Chromias just to find out, only to find that it won't work. It be a waste and a piss off for spending the money that could be used for other figs.

    I mean, Hasbro "said" the third is a repaint. If so, then the 3 of one type to combine would be fesable. But "if" it needs a third mold or a repaint plus parts, then it be a waste of money.

    My personal theory on the head is that the front headlight piece of Chromia will be the combined mode head. It looks kinda headish and it's got jointing that would allow decent head like movement.

    Where in Chromia and Arcee is that joint? The triangle can surely be compatible with my theory:

    Chromia is the left arm/cannon and left leg (the weapon-thingy attached to the wheel is the combiner's foot). Arcee seems to be the right foot and the right arm (arcee's shoulder can be separated to extend and form the right arm, and the lower part of Arcee definitely looks like leg). The third bike should carry the rest of the torso and the head.
