    Could this work for Binaltech Arcee?

    I still need a head for BT Arcee, and I'm not sure how to work the scale. How would this measure up?

    (I'm still not nuts about it, TBH).

    This head for Arcee REALLY fits well but the thing is I don't like the 34.99 for it either. I would hate to pass it up but I guess I will till that head goes down in cost.

    Honestly, this wouldn't look bad if she got some new arms. It's those funky animated hands that make this head look SO WRONG on that body. Srsly.
    Will wait for the Holy Grail/Unicorn that is the rumored Generations/WFC Arcee before I go cannibalizing my dear, sweet, animated Arcee (who has taken a liking to lugnut and I DON'T know why.)

    Hmm, a video review with a bad camera and bad focus/lighting that showcases more time spent transforming a figure we've all seen transformed before, rather than showing details of the actual heads..and grainy cell phone pics showing over-priced products..

    Sign me up.

    $35 for a head and gun... I'm selling a full upgrade set for 42 and people complain...there's no way I'd shell out 35 for just this.

    Also, concurring with the whole "wait for Gen Arcee" motion. I wonder if their gun fits in the alt mode? It would be nice if it did...

    That's exactly what I was about to post. If that head works with BT Arcee, I'd be a bit tempted, as £20 or so for a proper BT Arcee upgrade is a one-off hit I'd be prepared to take. The awful pink Decepticharge head is a deal breaker at the moment.

    Love Sarcasm =)

    That's excatly what I thought looking at the pics. Not professional. The head looks very "off" Just doesn't really fit with the style of the figure...

    With some minor work, Ani Arcee's head will work on the S2000 mold:

    Done by Deejemon

    I've done the same thing....I think it looks great.

    Of course, if uuser's Arcee head works on Ani Arcee, I don't see why it wouldn't work on the BT too, of course with a little mod work.

    And yeah, uuser's Arcee head makes this one look kinda "meh"

    The head sculpt looks good from what I can tell. But I'd need to see better pics. Personally I don't like the tf animated line so I can care less if it fits on that body. The sculpt is similar to Arcee but not Arcee which is a plus for me. I wonder if it can fit on other tf's. Maybe the Impossible toys Valkyre or Alternity Starscream since both of them look like ass. Anything to get more chicks in my collection, practically a tf sausage fest in there. lol

    I'm all for the 3rd party after-market, but let's make sure the product makes sense, shall we?

    Note that, per Animated styling, Arcee's head is quite large for her body type. uuser's head, and quite probably this one, are a much smaller scale, in an attempt to fit in with Classics (success is another matter entirely). Animated Arcee's head is just barely on the fringe of "passable", scale-wise, on the BT figure. These others are going to wind up comically undersized.


    The Decepticharge mold makes a terrible Arcee in the first place. The proportions are all wrong.

    Response to POLARIS upgrade Kit

    Note:
    Due to a recent reviews of our products by fans and staff alike, we have addressed the following issues regarding to the upcoming release of the ArX-01 POLARIS head upgrade kit.

    1. Past pictures we have posted regarding the kit presented confusions as to what actual head is coming out at BigBadToyStore.com - Toys, Action Figures, Vintage Toys, and Collectibles. There was actually two pictures of two different kinds of head molds that was circulated by us, and we apologize for it.

    ANSWER: We initially was going to offer the g1 likeness head as a product but recent reviews of it led us to a decision to re-sculpt it to address sizing and aesthetic issues . We still have the G1 likeness head but now we have found out it fits the Animated Blurr body so we are going towards that direction and will offer it as a website exclusive at Toyzzunlimited Collectible toys and Action Figures.

    2. Pricing problems arose and was met with a hostile welcome by other forums and reviews.

    ANSWER: First, we apologize to people who feel that they are being ripped off by the prices we have set for the kit. As some of you might know and also to those who might not, we have little control on the dictation of the prices of this upgrade kit. Actually since this is our first venture into this business we have done our best to keep cost of production down to a minimum to bring you the best possible prices without breaking bank. Now we are also talking to our main distributor that we are going to offer an extra pistol to go with it to make the kit have 2 guns instead of one. Also if you are to shop at our webstore, Toyzzunlimited Collectible toys and Action Figures we will try give you better prices for this kit but not to the extent of hurting our partners prices. You must be a member of our forums to avail of this special pricing. Contact us through these forums before checking out at our stores so we can credit you. We will offer the toy at $ 27.99 with a special bonus figure as a website special.

    3. Picture that has been circulating has been grainy and doesn't look pleasing.

    ANSWER: We are working with a professional graphics artist to make sure the real likeness and representation of the kit is shown accurately. We will keep you updated on these. Our many thanks.

    " We are trying our sincerest best to produce products collectors and fans alike would like, and we are constantly striving our best to better our craft, please bear with us and hopefully we can produce better and cheaper kits for you our fans, in the near future, our sincerest thanks ".
