NICE! I called tigertron as an upscaled remolded Cheetor. But Arcee?!?!?! Anything is fair game now.
I'm so excited about both of these releases. MP-50 Tigatron looks fantastic, and will make a great addition to the Maximals. He's a natural choice for MP treatment since it looks like the engineering is mostly similar to Cheetor.
I've been hoping for an MP Arcee forever and I'm happy she's finally announced. The alt mode looks spot on! But I do have to say it's disappointing to see that chonky backpack in bot mode. It screams Generations/Thrillling 30 to me. After seeing some recent 3P MP Arcee figures go to great efforts to minimize the car kibble and form two distinct pods behind the shoulders (which is toon accurate), I'm actually baffled that Takara went in the complete opposite direction and not even try. Yes, Arcee's slim bot mode makes this transformation a challenge. But 3P showed it could be approximated reasonably well, and I'm not seeing any attempt here to build on or refine that design.
That said, I think the overall look and proportions of Arcee's bot mode are pure toon greatness and I can't wait for more pics!
Arcee looks surprisingly good looking! But I did say the same about hound so let\'s see how this turns out.
to be fair, Hound looks great..its just that they effed up on the QC
Looks like the chest piece may slide up on that hinge on the collar. Hopefully it's mistransformed like every other release in pics
It sure does. Given that they won't want to rely on people having MP21 for a S3 theme, and because she was so protective of him in the Movie, I reckon we're getting a 'proper sized' one (like Spike with Hound) as the add on for Arcee.
I don't have any of the S3 figures yet, so I'll be looking at price very closely on this. If I can pick up a 3P for half the price, and it's decent enough in robot mode, then it's an official version I can pass on. If it's comparable in price then I will have to bite
The face is definitely not a TT toon special. Hopefully the image is affected by the patterns all over the poster, but zoom in and her nose looks fucked up...
I was never a fan of Tigertron, but the MP looks pretty good.
Arcee will definitely be a day-one pre-order. I just truly hope that whatever has been happening with Takara QC is going to be addresed.
I don't mind backpacks and usually just sigh when people complain, so normally I'd agree, but
What the fuck?
Looks like the mp stand that came with Tracks... bad photoshop editing
Nothing to see here.
I can understand complaints about backpacks, but when it is a character as skinny as Arcee, I have to ask where people expect the car to hide if not in the backpack.
Is it me, or does Tigatron look like an upscaled remold of Cheetor?
Funny how the MP Arcee thread is 90% Tigertron talk..
Granted as bad as she looks I guess it makes sense. Hoping she's mis-transformed? Her chest is waaaay to low. Makes her neck look super long. Takara usually nails the face sculpt but this one is.. wierd. I think the legends Arcee looks better then this "masterpiece"
I think this was a different thread before it was a dedicated tigatron thread. On that note I'm out as I have zero interest in this one. Happy for those who wanted it, and hope it comes out better than. Well whatever that is.
All in on this MP Arcee. So I’ll have 5 MMC Azalea, Nicee, Rouge, Leia, and then the official one. Can’t wait for the Amazon JP preorder
I need to see better pics, but this is the first time I've had a 3rd Party (FT Rogue) version of a character when the official was announced. If I had to choose right now, I'm keeping Rogue and skipping the official because the face and robot mode proportions just looks off to me. Plus, since I already have all the FT movie bots, I'm betting the official will be small compared to the rest just like Mp-28 Hot Rod vs. Hoodlum, and I'm not waiting 10+ years for Takara to finish the movie bots.
This guy seeing them take a picture.
Ouch. That face sculpt on Arcee
Tigatron looks good. I'm not really interested in the character but I might buy him.
I can pass on Arcee since I have the FTs and MMCs. Plus, the price and QC will probably be a turn off.
