    I can STILL put up with Chromia, even though "NO LEGS" thingy's clinging on me frantically! :rolleyes2 

    She's definitely not my preferred version & I now hope that she's not a Movie character so that I'll have a valid "excuse" to skip her totally.

    Some of our guys had mentioned before: The Movie version Fembot Arcee looks WAY better than what we're seeing here & I agree on that.

    ..Well, at least the Movie Arcee's showing us some Seeeexy "Legs" there! ;)

    Hmm...

    I don't mind the look of it (Skids and Mudflap still bother me more), but I'll only be annoyed by it if it ends up a pain in the ass just to stand up, let alone pose.

    Okay, quick dumb question, but the Arcee combiner has been confirmed as a true combiner, right? I just had a thought run through my head that an Arcee combiner could end up like the Movie Devastator combiner (vehicle modes that don't transform into robots) with non-combining, transforming robot toys sold separately for the individual 'bots. I could just be drawing a blank and not remembering when stuff on Movie Arcee's toy has been confirmed.

    But this is Hasbro.

    The arm cannon is way too big, and the extra bulk that gets flipped down before her chest level is bleh and makes her look to bulky, but I really like this design, and love the head sculpt...overall I think it is a win and hopefully the radicons will tinker away :)

    There have been vague, ambiguous rumblings of it, but in no way has it been confirmed as a combiner at all. Sure hasn't stopped people from getting their hopes up though.

    I really hope these combine and form Arcee. The small unicycle bots don't do anything for me. Arcee's original movie design (like animated Prowl) was much better......minus the head.

    It really looks awful. Just Not well designed at all. I hope it's horribly mis-transformed.

    I'm guessing this is one of the many bikes that form Arcee.

    I don't get why everybody hates the no legs thing, I think it's a welcome change. This looks like one of the most badass ROTF toys I've seen.

    I don't get it...

    Why the hell is every damn robot in this move a unicycle?!?!?!
    Ok, lets for a moment disregard the fact that it looks ridiculous and totally unpractical for a life form, but by "Bayformers" logic, there using the Protoform concept for the movies, right? That means that they come to earth as biped organisms and once they scan a vehicle they use it as camouflage, but it doesn't alter their original anatomy except for vehicle kibble (like Starscreams wigns, etc...).

    I'm sure they'll look cool and awesome when you see them blowing shit up on the IMAX screen, but when the smoke clears you still have a gimpy ass robot.

    Seems mistransformed, to me.

    With a bit of tweaking it looks great. Even if they don't combine, it's super cool that we're getting a nod to the female autobot team that fought Shockwave in G1. More or less.

    I REALLY hope these combine or they are the stupidest looking transformers toys in the history of Hasbro.Might as well just get a block of blue plastic and put wheels and a head on it. Look! Its a Brick-former!
