She looks a lot better posed (and at low resolution )
Yeah looks great. Looking at the inner thigh I think we get more hints to the transformation.
They look like some sort of panel that clips in to create the shape of the hip. Definitely looks like it’s pinned into something. You can see it slipping down a little in the second.
This might be some of the shifting of her legs to fit within the car shell. Or sit flush with the body.
Those glasses look fantastic.
These are some nice pics. We've learned that she's super posable and comes with two blast effects and a sniper rifle that was not revealed before. This explains the reason for the tab slot by the rear wheel, to hold the rifle and holster in alt mode. Also , you can store her handgun on the underside in car mode . She looks fantastic !
Im counting 3 blast effects look closely to the two smaller ones.
She looks so much better! Love how she looks with the red visor. I'm still trying to get used to her big backpack cuz right now, she reminds me of Mayoi Hachikuji
Cool weapons and blast FX.
Those pics have made up my mind, I'm definitely skipping this one too. Rouge may have a complicated transformation but she looks so much better. Hopefully takara can tickle my fancy with something better in the future
Damn so posable!
three faces @Paco Grande
Sad face (spot-on the way she looks at dead Wheeljack) smiling face, neutral face
These photos do make her look better, mostly due to the more 'heroic' and less 'cheesecake' posing. However the giant backpack and weird (not show accurate) proportions/sculpt of the robot-mode have and continue to put me off... for now.
The faces were so subtle I didn’t notice they were different but you’re obviously correct. They’re fantastic!
edit* oh there are three guns! One pink pistol, one gray pistol, and a pink rifle. Loads of accessories with this release. And she’ll be a tad taller than a typical carbot. That combined with a super large parts count will make this worth the asking price!
yeah really off putting, the backpack i can forgive and the rest of the figure and vehicle mode looks good but there's no getting away from it looking weird in the chest/torso area and i just don't understand how that was given the green light in the takara design department regardless of it being accurate to that design before anyone throws that picture at me
apart from the die hard fans that can forgive any design choice from takrara i can't see this selling that well
Seeing these poses......Pink never looked so bad-@ss!
Her articulation is obscene, it's probably some blue tack or something to help with the prototype, but if she can pull off an one legged running, double handed gun pose, with a noticeable backpack is crazy.
Oh I think it will sell shit tonnes, it appeals to both the 'die hard' MP market and the 'sexy girl' market (Waifu?)... big business in Japan. I totally get why she looks like this but it's incongruous with the show accurate aesthetic the rest of the line seems to be going for these days. Which I'd welcome if it wasn't incongruous in all the wrong ways for me.
The chest positioning/angle is IMO unforgivable, the hands are weirdly large, the eyes are oversized, the hips, thighs, waist and belly are IMO distastefully extra curvy... and then the backpack(a hallmark of G1 half the line these days) is just distracting and will severely limit posing options. That said I don't hate it, the alt-mode looks fantastic(but could do with some extra detailing) and seeing her posed in poses from TF:TM does tempt me a little... but that's the real problem for me, it's just not the Arcee I we see on screen in TF:TM, and let's face it that is THE Arcee everyone wants right?
I don’t think this will be the case but I’m hoping for some sort of stand provided from her spoke-stripper weapon.
megatron’s stock becoming a stand was the single most innovative use of an accessory I’ve ever seen. I’d be happy with anything at all in that direction. 44 would be an honorable mention but both my 44s’ stands can’t hold any weight at all. Unacceptable
HOLY FUCK WE’RE FINALLY GETTING AN OFFICIAL MP ARCEE
According to Snaka's blog she's going to be a December release.

Hope it's a surprise Daniel in her listings. Strangely all these new photos make me wonder if she won't get another page in figure king. Normally we get a lot of the same pictures, but most of these are new pics.
Females don't generally like that area to be pointed out by men on the internet.
