    MP51 even made me buy the human Arcee that I've been on the fence about for years. They look so nice together.

    Bring more fembots... and femcons.

    Thanks so much! That's what I'm desperately trying for. New test print with all the revisions is currently printing. Hopefully I'll have time to get it painted tonight and see how it looks in her head.

    i just got my MP51 arcee in; anyone have a gap on the left panel here?

    bot form unaffected, but takes a bit of finagling to get this panel in and once it does, there's a gap there. think the plastic there's a bit tweaked. wondering if other folks have this issue or just that rare qc problem.

    Wow, love it love it love it!!!
    I’ve been on this thread for so long that MP52’s face has become the default Acree face in my brain instead of the Sunbow toon face. Call me crazy.

    MP-51 caused me to dust off my MP-28 and put Kiki in some of the loose joints he had in the legs, which I had forgotten. He's now much better and posed for a couple of shots with MP-51. I'm really enjoying MP-51 as well, and she helped MP-28 get his leg joints back. (when his leg joints went bad years ago, I didn't yet know about Kiki)

    Can you tell I forgot to take a side view and did it as an afterthought? I think it's finished. Color is completely wrong - I used a tamiya pink I had laying around but it turns out it's more of a salmon. Best I had until I get to the store and pick up some more paints (I printed two copies so I can try again later). Just wanted to do a paint test - not sure I'm ever gonna get that lip outline right though. Also I think the eyes are a bit buggy now - I overcompensated for them not going in all the way last time.

    The sculpt turned out great! I agree with you on the paint... I’m a little thrown off by the flesh tone. But man, the face sculpt turned out really appealing! That nose is so perfect!!! Great job Snaku!

    Holy Shit, DUDE!!!! I’ve been waiting to see some super kick ass fighting poses and that is ON ANOTHER LEVEL! That running pose, feel the speed. The flying knee, ouch. The way Megatron’s body is contorted in agony. Arcee is a bad ass chick! At least our MP52 is. I bow to you @Trunkkey .

    Welp. My Arcee broke above the stress mark so I'm returning her through DHL tomorrow. Already ordered a second copy from Robot Kingdom so I hope it doesn't have that painted pin issue again.

    Still not entirely sure I have the backpack done correctly, something seems wrong. All I know is I don't have the patience today to get her to stand for shit.

    I just keep getting mind blown how stable she can be

    Remember when you thought she wouldnt be able to stand without a stand.:) 
    Who ever did this , Kobayashi, Im guessing deserves his kudos because big backpack and small feet dont normally make for a figure that poses this well.
