And a new shot of G1-styled Arcee, a two-fer!
I love how in Japan they have split our Arcee between her pink and black colors, like we have one good, one evil now.
so what's the transcanning? And that G1 arcee is a must pick up!
Arcee looks fantastic although I do wish she came with a remolded head. Optimus Prime looks far better than he did before. Though that Protoform mode on Optimus looks like trash the truck makes up for it.
Arcee is strangely compelling...
Not bad. Although Arcee looks vaguely Zoidberg-ish.
The transcanning OP and BB are basically protoforms with clip on armor to give them their earth modes.
Arcee is nice and all, but I'd have chosen a different Pink for her lower legs and hands rather than using a Flesh tone. She looks like she's wearing Shorts.
This Arcee should have been in the movie....
"Are you the tooth fairy?"
And Takara continues to refer to Prime's truck as a (Kenworth) W900*. Is it any wonder that the only toy with an accurate truck mode is Leader class Prime?
*I hope I'm wrong, because Japanese toy companies usually have a pretty good eye for detail for vehicles, so I can't image why they've decided to officially refer to the Prime truck as a model from a company that didn't even appear in the movie.
Hmm I can't say I'm a huge fan on the shade of pink they used for Arcee. She looks like she's made out of cotton candy colours. XD
The Optimus is very much like those "Bruce Wayne into Batman" toys they always make. Snap on armor to make the switch, and things end up way out of proportion in some places.
Still kinda cool in it's way though
The Arcee is cool though I think the pink could be a little darker. It looks a little washed out.
I'd get the Arcee, but since it's a Japanese Wonderfest Exclusive, the price is probably going to be outrageous.
Prime actually looks like fun, though I am not keen on the proportion. Looking forward to seeing a picture like this of Bumblebee
Prime looks a little teminator-ish to me.
Meh, pass on both.
The only Arcee I'm looking for now is one from Universe (C2.0) or Animated. Granted, Hasbro would have to make one first, but still. I can wait.
I'm kinda of digging the Arcee, but yeah I want animated too.
Personally though on the Optimus, I'm a lil unsure still, need to see final painted of prescan form. Not digging the bigass wings either, but the concept is still cool.
I've had the Trans-scanning BB and Prime on Pre-order forever now and I'm more than sure bbts will probably not have the G1 arcee repaint and if they do manage to get it, it will be gone not even 30 mins. after they post i up for pre-order
I missed out on The black Arcee *cries*
Oh I can not wait to get Arcee
Additionally, they look like shell-forming bricks.
Easy pass on the transcan. Arcee is a maybe.
