    No need, if they don't get another batch before December, it should be available at release.
    Kind of puts in perspective how many MPs Takara actually makes if Amazon has went through so many Preorders.

    Nope. Check my post history and you'll see the case is otherwise. I'm either just having a bit of fun that ties into the topic of the thread while trying to make sure I don't derail this thread (which has already ran it's course here, but i've already taken note before, don't you worry), or i'm using one to convey everything in a nice little way. I'll respectfully rest my case here and leave it to you to figure out which falls in to what category.

    I just hope Takara has the transparency to give Arcee a stand since she looks so backheavy.

    Either that or we can somehow get either Dinobot's or MP-44's stand to substitute. Or this thing has some of that Takara black magic and somehow it can actually stand perfectly without one, haha.

    I think she'll stand fine by herself with that same legs angled slightly back stance that TT are designing into all their figures at the moment, that both adds some character/dynamism and also helps support a heavy back. Very apparent on the V2 Starscream side profile, and I think Arcee will stand fine in a similar stance.

    What I meant is that hopefully Takara acknowledges the fact that she's back heavy and includes a stand to help with poses

    I'm not too concerned they did just throw Tigatron up there too, without a care in the world. Dude had a lot of Seige stuff to set up:lol

    There's no stand mentioned in her list of accessories so she's not gonna include one.

    Added stand added cost. You can also use the stand from MP Tracks. But I don't think the center of gravity issue will be an issue if you align her legs properly. Let's wait and see this January 2021.

    I second it. Just like Hotrodimus, just angle the legs to shift its center of Gravity. Same mechanics as the PP Optimus/Starconvoy mold. Back heavy but the weight is just fine as the center of gravity is shifted.

    Let's not forget, IIRC, Takara themselves did use MP Tracks' stand for their initial Arcee photos.

    First lady of TF I guess :bowdown:  I wonder if Takara can also retool her to be Elita-1 or create an entriely new mold? They did that in Earthrise so fingers crossed..............

    I forsee a lot of Tracks being purchased for this(Dinobot is kinda too way out there price(also own the uglee piece of Awesome)

    I sincerely hope that is the case with this figure.

    My only gripes with that statement would be that Hot Rod didn't have that much of a heavy backpack and he had heel spurs that kinda help with stability. However in Arcee's case, she has a much larger backpack and small feet and most of the expo and toy fair images have her supported by a stand or something.
