    My only hope is that the new official masterpiece Arcee will get people wanting to sell their fanstoys version so I get a chance to get one! Every time I try to track one down it disappears very quickly. I do agree the chest is a little weird on the release photos for the offical Arcee though.

    Despite its flaws, I'm still buying it. At this point it is what it is, like or not, buy or not. I doesn't matter anymore. All the vendors will have paid for their stock, and TT got their money, so it's done now.

    You're a bad influence my friend. :p  I should be sleeping, but I just had to do this once you suggested it.

    Ehhh, Azalea wears it better, it must have that new Protoform head sculpt to make it work for MP Arcee, maybe.

    Hate this colour scheme, really surprised MMC released their version. I keep thinking of 70s living rooms...

    That said, it almost makes me prefer the MP51 sculpt in this colour scheme. Somehow it looks less bad.

    I genuinely think my opinion on 51 is rooted in the character, and not the figure itself. It's more about the toon aesthetic or lack thereof, that a specific issue with the figure per se.

    I'd like to see the Medic colour scheme too, because it might reinforce that sentiment.

    I'm really quite looking forward to seeing more of Arcee.
    Yeah.. I'd agree with most in that the chest area looks weird- but considering the transformation, the alt mode and the stunning range of articulation... it's fine.

    My only real gripe as such os the face - it seems a little 'old' and the eyes look weird too.but with the visor down... looks amazing!

    NZ fan here, and we don’t tend to see TFs at EB Games - but that price is INSANE! $300 AUD...

    I’m pretty certain what we’ve all been looking at so far is actually the MP-51G(ma) ver. of the mold and TT simply forgot to inform us ... that’s the truth I’m going with so I don’t cry myself to sleep thinking abt this abomination! :)

    After analysing the chest area, I can say that the chest piece is well placed but not enough long. It should climb to the shoulders to cover the white part of the neck.
    I have made a little change to the picture to show what I mean.

    I think it should'nt have been complicated to hide that in alt mode.

    She looks pretty neat. I wish we got more legends scale Arcee’s though.

    That does look a lot better but I'd also like the underside to "tuck in" a little better rather than pretty much hanging straight down. So basically angle the whole chest piece down and extend the top rather than just angling and extending the top.

    Makes no sense how a small change could have such a big positive impact!
