    7CC0204B-649F-4BB2-ABDA-B54577286E32.jpeg owner of both and let me chime in on this debate on who is more accurate to G1 Arcee.

    I’d say both are just as accurate to the show, why? Animation inconsistency. G1 is known for its inconsistent animation and character models. You will have scenes where Arcee is as tall and slender as Rouge and Scenes where she is shorter and more curvy. Ultimately it’s up to you who you find more appealing and accurate. Neither are inaccurate though, digging through G1 scenes to see who is more accurate won’t get you anywhere.


    On the topic of who is a better figure. I’d say both are great.

    I like Rouge due to the quality of materials (MY MP51’s neck peg broke the second day). Rouge is a heavier figure with better feeling plastic and more die-cast. While lots of people hate Rouge’s transformation I actually enjoy it.

    MP51 has more articulation and the transformation is much simpler than Rouge. She’s fun to pose around and take photos with although it’s a bit difficult to get her to stand in certain poses.


    Who do I prefer all around? Rouge. I enjoy her cleaner backpack and how she looks on a shelf.

    This is why we are in the golden age. You get an awesome representation that you like, and I get an awesome representation that I like!

    Except for that neck to bust transition the rest of her really is great.  Isn\'t/wasn\'t there an add-on kit project to fix that?

    I definitely like both for different reasons! I think a magic blend of the two would be ideal in my eyes! Currently, I prefer the MP for alt mode for sure, but I debate between the two for robot. I like the height of Rouge with the other FT Movie bots... luckily, I have an alt mode display for my duplicates, so both have a home!

    Never seen that movie. But ive seen saggies more than once in real life and they aint pretty. Its one thing to put your beer goggles on after a party, but its not something you want to remember when you sober up. The push up bra is a feat of engineering on par with the Hoover Dam.

    You’re missing out on 90% of what the rest of us are gushing over if you never transform MP51. It’s like owning a box of donuts but haven’t opened it yet.

    Indeed nice photos @Tony_Bacala. You mistransformed the taillights though and you didn't fully compress the backpack too. A shame, because the photos are good.

    Just some crappy pictures of Arcee.
    The more I mess with her, the more I like her. Dang this piece is possible
    I’m working on a setup for some good foto’s, but we’re at lockdown up here. So it will take me some more time

    edit: I ment poseble (autocorrect....)

    I still have some toys in the shipping boxes they came in! It's not deliberate I just take a while to get around to opening/transforming them. Also I'm super out of space at the moment...

    So many Arcee's out there now, who the hell cares?

    Enjoy what ya like. it's your money.

    Same pointless shit being discussed literally every single time a new Arcee toy comes along.

    Don't ya'll get sick of it after awhile?

    so MP Arcee has Curves like every other female Bot and Female anything out there.

    I'd post a gigantic Unicron-Sized Shrug, but I don't own any so it's not possible.
