    lol I think I remember the throwaway character from that one ep in that one season... but admittedly I know nothing else about her other than it's a girl transformer and it looks neat. Id buy that seafoam green cybertronian ghettosled in a heartbeat!

    Like @jackisking I too am surprised they didn't give us a pic like this (sorry, I couldn't deal with Ultra Magnus right now)...

    I don't think they usually do alt-mode comparisons in the preview shots, except when showing Autobot Cars fitting into Prime's trailer.

    That seems like an exception, rather than the rule. That was mostly just to show off the full "Diaclone" set complete, I think.

    Your stuff always looks 100X better than TT’s official images of anything.

    Amazing stuff man, as always.

    Downright beautiful. Now let's hope they give us Blurr,Kup, and Wheelie(wheeee!!) I think that sells me on not needing a new Hot Rod stat. Maybe they'll 1.5 him and call it a day for now in order to get to some other figures. Making his head bigger(face swap...wheeee!!) and bringing his arms in some more would go a long way with a brighter paint job.

    Given the current situations with no shows and all the pics we gotten of her over the last 3 months, it was kind of odd to see so much off her altmode and not see what she looks like next to Hot Rod.

    Amazing work! I love the pink reflecting on the ground and in Hot Rod’s chrome.

    We haven’t gotten any pics of Arcee on that standard MP background have we? Just white backgrounds?

    The pictures on TakaraTomy's site have a dark grid background with an Autobot logo instead, but yeah, no pictures on that standard table surface. Just the ones with the background edited out.

    She’s just cute green Arcee it’s a nice look. Also she avoids that weird design pattern that people associate with Arcee where the pink is skin and the white is clothes. Doesn’t mean much to me but its another reason.

    These two are prime examples of compromising bot mode for near perfect vehicle mode that didn't even require licenses.

    Technically true, but it doesn't quite capture the full picture.

    Hot Rod was produced on a lower budget allotment than the current MP standard, so he couldn't take advantage of that magical shapeshifting engineering design they're now capable of.

    Arcee is just an impossibility because 85% of her vehicle mode goes absolutely nowhere on her robot mode.

    So, eh, compromises. Plus creator appeal, on account of Arcee's remaining inaccuracies.

    Because chchch is a diehard fan who doesn't need to be paid to photograph or Pshop an image. Most often than not, especially Hb images, the people hired couldn't care less on what image they take.

    Us fans, well we just enjoy it.

    He also had a weird mashup of designers that aren’t really a part of the main masterpiece team. And he had that forced matrix gimmick which kinda messed up the torso.
