    I guess it's great news for the people who want a more G1 looking Arcee, and the head sculpt is pretty spot-on.

    However, I must admit, it looks slightly unnerving to me, like there's something positively not right about the head being on that body. Quite like an unnatural construct, and a bit creepy! :eek:

    The face looks too human. It really looks like a helmet was place over a Marvel Legends female face. Big pass.

    The head sculpt is terrific but man, that does not jive well at all with TFA's aesthetics.

    I echo what others had already said. i'll wait for generations Arcee. RTS and Generations line has not fail me so far, so my hopes are high for a good Arcee figure.

    I know that's not the final version, but that head on the video was very loose. You can see that it doesn't clip or anything into the neck, the guy just puts it on. It even almost fell off when he flipped the car, you see how he has to push it back into place.

    So, to summarize what most fans seem to feel about this: the main problem with this set seems to be the timing. Many people have complained about the price, but it has been stated that it's fair for a custom kit.
    The problem with the price is not the price itself, but the fact that there is an official Arcee toy on the way and it will cost just half as much as this kit. Seeing the good work done on Kup, Blurr, WreckGarr, Scourge, Perceptor, etc. people have very good expectations for that incoming Arcee.

    I am holding out for the Generations/Reveal the Shield Arcee (assuming it is not a rumor). The head is okay, but not at that price point. I am afraid we are never gonna get Arcee at this point. They made one for Animated, but not Classics which I find puzzling. Oh well. Deep breath and remaining patient.

    I think the sculpt looks fine but having such classics g1 styled head on an animated figure it just looks awful. I mean animated body but a classics style head wtf are they thinking.

    Too late and not that good. There's one in the Radicons that looks a lot better.

    eh who needs this when we are getting a classics Arcee in the works.Only thing is only rather have the gun & I agree it won't look Animated anymore.Personally I rather wait for the Generations Arcee. after seeing pics for the Deluxe Warpath.I kind of feel Arcee for generations will be Spectacular.

    I think if the arms (at least lower arms) were changed, it would look great.
