    It's no different than those GDO figs that were Classics heads on TFP bodies. It wasn't a Classics toy at all. No simple headswap or subtle remold will change that. And she does look... off to me, and I'm leaning towards a TFP feel which is making her look... off.



    EDIT: Just found the side-by-sides. Yeah, that's a Prime toy, it has no place in my collection.

    Finally, an official G1 Arcee! And she's a car!

    I'm happily shocked Hasbro went with a strong G1 design. I'll welcome a War for Cybertron, IDW, or "modern update" version of Arcee in the future, but I'm so glad G1 is coming first!

    The toy isn't perfect, and I think the transformation could have been engineered much better, but overall I like her. Definite buy.

    I actually hope this strong G1 influence isn't a one-time thing. I would love to see a more G1, Cybertronian/futuristic version of Blurr, Kup and even Springer and Hot Rod. And Cybertronian versions of Jazz, Bumblebee and Wheeljack from the first episode of the cartoon would be awesome.


    As for Chromia, I have mixed feelings. The futuristic motorcycle is cool, but at the same time I'm a little tired of motorcycles, especially as alt modes for the female characters. And I'm not crazy about her being a retool. I could see the similarities to PRID Arcee right away, and I don't even have any version of that mold. I'll probably get her, as these nitpicks will likely lessen over the next few months.

    I really hope these two and Windblade will pave the way for more female Transformers as toys, and the sooner the better. Moonracer, Greenlight, Blackarachnia, Airazor....

    Personally I always thought TFP Arcee was more like Chromia with the name Arcee so this retool sits well with me. It looks G1-ish and matches the comic nicely. I'm sure the windshield becomes a riot shield, totally bad ass!

    About Arcee, this is the purest version of the character I have ever seen. She has real hips and a masterpiece of a facesculpt. If you have issues with the addition of so much black don't worry because tomy will have a crack at the mold too. Im sure we will get at least five repaints. If i had to guess, medic, black, prime blue, Ariel head and maybe the G1 prototype color scheme peach and pink. I just hope i can get them all!

    If only hasbro would tell me if they plan on doing the other g1 fembots so I know
    If I should buy MMC Elita 1 for my girl and boy

    I think the arcee here with the back kibble being what it is , would make a good remold possible toy in the future on the level of sandstorm / springer and chromia / prime arcee

    So hoping for firestar and Moonracer and then green light and lancer

    it certainly does look nice, but I do hope takara does it with gray , just to keep it a little more inline with the cartoon.

    Still, hasbro has done an amazing job

    It breaks up the colors nicely, and you can tell the color scheme is loosely based on Animated Arcee.

    I love her gloves as well

    she just oozes 80's

    The Gloves, the bikini, the 80's half-shirt. she looks bad-ass.

    It'll be easy to turn her into a Harley Quinn transformer.

    I hope some of the shapeway heads I have for RID and BH Arcee work on these 2 figures. Not too crazy about the headsculpts, but they are ok, thus why hoping the shapeway heads work out. Windblade looks so much nicer.

    Anyways, pretty excited to get these 2, and more importantly, Windblade. I think for all 3 of them, I will get 2 of each, 1 to keep as is so I can always easily play / transform it, and one for repaint to G1 Dinos and keep in bot mode only. ;)
