    Here's a few more. Size comparisons at the end, with the obligatory up-skirt shot in the middle.

    Special thanks to Sidecutter and the Captured Prey team for being kind enough to move the fragile prototypes around, when I asked them to!

    That's true, but it could mean the Arcee is freakin' TINY! Haha

    :lol 

    But at 5.5 inches she's nearly as tall as a US dollar is long, and that isn't all that small, imho.

    Arcee is 14cm it's big enough for a slim lady haha. So I think it does mean that Sixshot is a giant.

    Yeah, that is one awkward date. I asked them to pose them next to each other because of size difference. Reminds me of pics of Shaquille O'Neal and his girlfriend/wife, lol.

    The figure looks really nice, but I noticed in the pictures and in Vangelus's video that the headsculpt is a little boring. MMC has done a whole bunch of really characterful and interesting headsculpts, so here's hoping that the final product has something a little more distinct. (It also could be a function of being a proto that the face is the way it is now.)

    I am so in love with all of MMC's offerings. Just one more thing left to do...get them on my display shelves. :)

    I agree, but I think its less the head and more the face specifically, if their is one thing I'd get nitpicky about it is that her face is a bit too plain. Maybe if they give her blue lips and yellow eyes like the design she's actually derived from it'd have more personality:

    Looks great. Face sculpt is a bit reserved but then I think we're mostly used to IDW Arcee's face looking like the above pictures with her freaking out on a murderous rampage. XD I do have to nitpick one thing and it's the plastic quality of MMC's (and by extension, MechIdeas) offerings. There's just something rough and unfinished about how the plastic looks (at least in photos) and feels to me, but YMMV. At any rate, I hope the fembots' joints are tighter than MI's Jumpstarter twins' (not that mine are floppy messes but they're a bit too loose for my liking).

    Yeah, I'd guess MMC wouldn't want to use the rage faces because while the figure is based on IDW Arcee, they'd still want the crossover buy from G1 Arcee fans.

    Still, it has a bit of blank doll face right now, so something that expresses a little more emotion would be fun to see, whether it's determination, playfulness, what have you.

    Wow, that's a scary looking Arcee. If the toy looked like that, I wouldn't be interested:/

    The current face does look a bit simple, but that doesn't really bother me--IDW's Arcee is not the Arcee I remember.

    I love the expressions found on Bovis and Fortis--so much emotion in those sculpts. MMC has changed the game when it comes to face sculpts. I expect good faces to be norm now, lol.

    I don't know if that level of emotion seen on Bovis and Fortis are suited for Arcee, but a little more feeling would be appreciated. I wouldn't mind something a focused look.

    I'd rather have a neutral Arcee. Some people will be getting this for Classics and an angry vampire face might not be the best choice for that display.

    Yeah, the "blue lipstick" always looked kinda dumb to me anyway.

    But for folks that want it, there's nothing stopping alternate third party heads from being made... ;)

    I never said I wanted her with an angry face or her pointy comic rage teeth. She just needs something to liven it up a bit and some blue coloring on her mouth would probably do wonders. Even g1 arcee had a red mouth.

    Heck maybe MMC could do alternate heads down the line, I dunno just trying to make suggestions I think would greatly benefit an already great figure.

    You posted pics of her with an angry face so that's what I thought you wanted. My apologies.

    Sadly good examples of idw arcess face tend to all involve her yelling lol.

    edit: ooh scratch that here's a nice one:
    [​IMG]

    Maybe an expression like that would work on her, kinda mischievous. Or then again that's probably just the face she makes before she pokes someone, with a sword. :lol
