    I won't based a price's justificiation solely on size. It isn't at all about the plastic, but more like how many parts it consist of, how detailed the paint job and the construction is, etc.

    So if its 100$, its fine with me, as long as I can see it justified in the engineering and manufacturing.

    So many people have tried this character and most have been lacking but I rather like this one.

    A little too bright for me, but I'll reserve judgement until I see in hand pics. Next year.

    That neon green/blue on the recolor is scrumptious. If I were to pick this up I say screw the Notcee version. The glorious bright colored version is where its at.

    I must admit I was hoping for a lighter pink with Arcee, I liked the pale, cool, grey and the light, pale, pink for her with Elita having the darker pinks.

    Guys, pls read the rest of the thread for potential pricing, which wasn't yet set in stone. We don't want to unadvertainly drive the prices higher than they would be. Griffith had said before that it would likely be less than the other 3rd party, and more reasonable, but he has also mentioned in other threads that the perceived and acceptable value will dictate higher demanding prices.

    I for one hope there will be early bird well discounted prices on these figures, and price will be low so we can get multiple figures.

    As it stands, the teal one is very sexy and appealing, and I wasn't even interested in this scheme to begin with. MMC was very smart changing / remolding the teal version vrs the "arcee" version, just wish they got the correct cartoon colors on the arcee scheme, but some people like this scheme too it seems. It looks like the teal has potentially less parts than the red/pink one, and that they actually removed front side parts and the swords? If it will have less parts / cheaper cost, I hope this will mean a lower price for us, but would like to know what is included which each character. In the end, the final price will dictate which figure (s) I will get, though I would like one at least (higher price would mean I would only get one).

    I am guessing we wont see these until all the feral rex are out, so that would mean likely more than 6 - 8 months.

    Really hoping they can stick to a G1 accurate color scheme... at least for SOME issue of the figure. We've had a load of wild magenta and blue Arcees in the past years, none of which hit the mark for those of us looking to build some lineup from the movie.

    Now that we have a decent Springer, I'm hoping this one can finally fill the spot for a car Arcee. Looking nice so far.

    that alt mode is terrible and I don't think I can get past the "butt flap" for lack of a better word. Bot mode does look good from the front though and agree that the head sculpt is flawless

    Looks good. anyone else also notice that the two are slightly different in alt mode? mostly in the front which I believe are due to the different shoulder/back sections in robot mode.

    But man, MMC has way too much in the pipeline now. Hexatron isn't out yet and the rest of the Feral Cons are way out.

    You know, looking at how this transforms, it'd make a good basis for a jet fembot as well. You just work in wings that end up on the back in robot mode.

    Very nice. I guess the PE version will now be her "Earth Mode". Not certain on the redeco yet. It would be nice, but 3P is rough enough to collect without straight recolors.

    I have MGT01 and really didn't expect these to be worth considering since I have an accurate Arcee. However these latest pics look pretty good. I may consider picking them up after all.
