    She looks brilliant in my opinion. Yes, its a remold of PRID Arcee but that'd only be a problem if it didn't work for both characters, which it absolutely does.

    Its not perfectly accurate to IDW, but it obviously is her to the point its not a huge deal to me. Her colour layout and head help out any discrepancies.

    I still don't like Chromia's blue face.

    Oh, geez, in that Seibertron picture I notice Chromia's heel pieces are made of clear plastic. I hope it doesn't crack from frequent transformations.

    I love the RID Arcee, and don't mind the re-use of parts for Chromia. Looking at the actual pics of the figure and the video at botcon (an dnot the ugly Promo pics), both Arcee and Chromia are looking like I will need at least 2 of each, one to keep as is, one for repaint. Now extremely excited about both of these figures.

    Meh it looks close enough to the IDW form: it doesn't have to be an exact copy.

    You're reading way too much into what I said and creating your own rabbit hole while still proving my point about TFP Arcee and Gen Chromia here. Enjoy that.

    Yeah, the clear plastic heel pieces (that also hold the wheels) can be a point of breakage on Chromia.

    I've been looking at the pics of Arcee & noticed something I didn't really pay attention to at first. All the black on her looks really bad. Why would Hasbro put all that black on her? Arcee doesn't have a ton of black all over her. I hate it when I have to correct a figure right out of the package. Her knees look ridiculous. That black has to go.

    Azalea & Delicate Warrior are still the best Arcee toys out there. Hasbro's is cool & I can't wait to add her to my collection but unfortunately, she's not the best.

    So glad your opinion isn't MY opinion. :D 

    Arcee looks fantastic, and as I stated awhile back, the black used really helps to break up her bland color pallet. It also adds a lot more depth to her as a character and makes her feel just a bit more modernized. (just like it did for her TFA Counterpart)

    All white would be more correct and probably the Takara version will feature more white, but I think it looks good. I just hope that the Takara version will not appeal more to me, as I already pre-ordered the Hasbro version.

    The solid black patches above her knees just don't look right to me. It makes her hips look shorter & out of proportion. Or it kinda looks like she's wearing knee high boots.

    At least the problem is easy to fix with a little white paint.

    Wow, is this still being debated?

    Chromia is 100% a retool of PRID Arcee.

    They share all the parts that are cast on Arcee in the matte black nylon plastic (collar, shoulder joints, upper arms, hands, hip sockets, outer thighs, feet, kickstand, the assembly the front wheel's attached to) apart from the handlebars assembly, as well as the waist, front of the torso, and the "cleavage" part, plus maybe the kneepads too, but I can't tell if those are actually a separate part to the shins.

    [​IMG]

    Green highlighted parts are re-used from Arcee, everything else is new.

    The kneepads are attached to the shin in one mold.
