    it should only take one bully company. i want that bully company to appear and change things around for fans. if another company gets hurt i could care less. if you look at any market, there's always one like that. especially whenever its entering a very competitive market, this is one of those.

    Looks nice, but I'll wait to see the price.

    Yeah I have liked some of the perfect effect stuff but the price for the size of the figure has always been the deal breaker for me.

    Too little, too late, and too much of a bike for me. My Igear Arcee is in no danger of being replaced.

    Sweet, I hope they make a Black Arachnia or Night Bird out out of the same mold, but not 100 repaints like Hasbro.

    ^ Is that a joke? The average unofficial release gets just as many, if not more, redecos than a Hasbro Deluxe. At least Hasbro usually springs for a new head these days. :lol 

    CHOICE IS BAD GUYS.

    Another custom Arcee? Hopefully Hasbro will release a definitive Classics-style Arcee to kill all wannabes.

    with so much expensive stuff coming out, this made my short list. i do like the concept of the motorcycle. i bet they nail the face too, theyre pretty good on head sculpts.

    kinda stoked, the clear photos look great, but the blurred one...eh, not so much.
    have many makers done this in the past, blurring the photos? it really didnt do any justice to the Maketoy not-Constructicons either. just stick with the silhouette till youre ready to show the toy.

    Already have the I-Gear Arcee, but if they release an alternate colored/remolded female character I will be all about this. I need more Fems in my Transformers collection.

    I agree with you and OptionZero on this. Though I didn't know it at the time, Animated Prowl was the figure that got me into collecting TFs; what I find ingenious about that toy is how elegent it all is- the transformation and both modes. Here we see an interpreteation on the symmetrical legs idea and a new twist on the side fairing to backpack concept that is a real Arcee motif.

    Having said that, with the exception of Scouting Force (Reflector), PE have a pretty solid pattern of releasing an invented/less popular deco/character and finishing with the one (or pairs in the case of Eject-Rewind and Frenzy-Rumble).

    If that's the case here, Arcee could follow about six other uses of the mold for G1 Fembots: (off the top of my head) Elita-1, Chromia, Moonracer & Firestar then via the wiki page Lancer & Greenlight. Maybe Flareup from the Timelines comic too. Wow. Ofcourse Arcee is differentiated from a these characters by her backpack (and less angular head design). So it seems odd to me that PE Arcee's backpack's made of the side fairings of the bike, when if it was made of the panniers (sp) they could simply be removed for the other fembots, without tearing the sides off the bike.

    Same here. Arcee's a skip, but color her red and green or something and I'm back in again.

    Yes, or several G1 paintjobs- excepting my thoughts just posted about the backpack having to go.

    Lol without offending any real people, let me just take a lool at my Classics/Henkei etc shelves...

    Hips: Mirage
    As for the other; you'd never look at an Autobot with a car bumper chest the same way again if I went there 0.o lol

    That's supposed to be Arcee? :confused:  This definitely won't be pushing my iGear Arcee off the shelf anytime soon.

    I can appreciate the idea of making an "Arcee" without being a direct interpretation of a cartoon model (or a Botcon Japan custom design), but this is of limited interest to me. Energon Arcee is an adequate, possibly even superior (not having a lot to go on at this point) homaging bike femme-bot to me currently.
