    Do you think there's a possibility of 3P faceplates with a less pronounced jaw and chin?
    I don't really have a problem with the chest, backpack or belly as much as the face.

    Can't wait to put in my PO with AJ! Like Hound, she's going to make a helluva Christmas gift for moi! I just hope we don't have to wait another 5 years for the next Movie/s3 character!

    Would seriously not mind a newly announced Roddy alongside a Magnus V2 (as amazing as V1 is, kinda looks on the bloated side).

    Imagine that..


    But yeah, AJP seems to be taking longer than usual to put Arcee up, no?

    No one has made one for Sunstreaker yet, so doubtful.

    I would strongly recommend using TFS express. I still haven't received a refund or any form of response from AE since sending back my broken hound. So that's a loss of over £100 including the £16 I spent on posting it back to Japan. They were very good at responding until they asked for my PayPal transaction number and since then radio silence. Not worth the risk on what will be a maxim saving of £20.

    Yeah, if the only G1 MPs we got for the next few years were Movie/s3 characters, I'd be a happy 41 yr old man and the inner 7 yr old in me would pretty much explode!

    Still lurking, still loving these figures, just super busy trying to draw as much as I can. Hope you're well, my brother!

    ...i like that you threw the gradient across her windshield, even though it doesn't properly align with the sun direction: i did something similar for the pseudo-reflection across the autobot sigil i superimposed on my avatar...

    What is that in reference to?

    Yeah it’s bothered me since the pictures hit the web, just a small “fix” to me.

    I think it's in reference to that the Arcee model was the designer's "waifu"...

    That visor look is absolutely one of my favourites.

    Robot Kingdom has her for an “OK” price, but it’s such a gamble knowing who to preorder with when international air freight is so unpredictable now, let alone when she’s due for release. Living in NZ has its perks, but maintaining the old collection from here is definitely a bit of a gamble at the moment haha.

    Damn, that short of all three looks great!

    Her chest is a little low, I agree, but who cares when the figure overall is just so nice. Might I have to buy?...not sure, my QC senses are tingling. But she sure looks like the MP I always wanted of this iconic chatacter.

    Looking at the Generations figure, both this one and the MP have similar chests. It's the MP's bigger collar that makes the chest seem lower. I like to imagine the collar piece as a scarf. Once I did that, the MP started looking better to me.

    I liked the Generations figure (I had the TT Legends figure and sold her a while back), and I’m warming to MP-51 now.

    Arcee being the "Muse" who got him the gig at Takara:buttrock 

    Addendum: General focus on the rest of the naysayers and not to you daimchoc

    Issues about her breast plate again, I wonder if 3rd party can ever fix that if its design runs in conjunction with the entire car structure. Can it be detached and replaced? Will they get the colors right? I fear that if the breast is the deal breaker here then you have no choice but to walk away from such a cruddy product.

    By November, everything will stabilize so no worries.

    And there's nothing all the huffin' and puffin' can do 'cause she's already being packed and shipped.:lol
