    That is actually a pretty good idea.

    You havent seen what modern mp and 3p mp have to do to make the robot modes to be accurate right? Because thats exactly what they do, make the vehicle modes dissapear as well, look at starscream v2.3.4.5, optimus v3, because the g1 cartoon did exactyl the same, they simplified the details so much the vehicles basically dissapeared, thats not just a bay thing

    Well, we can see at least some changes in the teaser image:

    Namely, he does have the unmasked head, and the central chest piece between the headlights has been changed with new detailing. Unfortunately it's very tough to make out any other changes just from this photo, like the abs, collar pieces, and vehicle mode changes.

    And those cost significantly more than their earlier iterations. The same would be true of generations figures that took that tactic

    Is SS86 arcee exclusive to Japan? I don't think that they used T30 Arcee mold for SS86 arcee.

    Talking more about it, is a shame they removed the ports from the arms.

    But seriously, dat backpack.

    That’s not as bad as I thought, but she must be going hiking with all the backpack. Arcee just really needs an overhauled redesign in general otherwise we will just keep getting this.

    I will probably get it if they’ve somehow been able to keep the hoverboard gimmick idea because I actually like that.

    She has a waist swivel. It would make posing her even better.

    I like her head better now. She seems to change a lot more than we expected. I reckon she’s a SS-32-type retool where they look similar from a distance but actually had quite a lot changed from ER Arcee.

    Kingdom at least gives you the option of big backpack or near cartoon-look. I mean, I like T30 Arcee but the pack never did her favors. I guess this is a best-option for those who want a backpack without the option of taking it off.

    I don't get the love for T30 Arcee over ER. Both have huge backpacks.

    This is gonna be the definitive version of chug G1 Arcee until they find a way to make her not be a shellformer. I see no reason to ever buy the Earthrise mold.
