    But they are not Transformers toys, which makes them irrelevant to the discussion.

    My points stand.

    I was going to ask if someone from America was willing to buy the figure and send it to me at my expense but with a price of $49,95 I'm skipping it.

    Hey, guys! So, I was looking to purchase RED Arcee and I got two questions:

    - It will be avaiable in March? :( 

    - 50 dollars is the current price? Damn...

    Porbably, a bit sooner than that

    That's the online price but at retail, this figure should cost around 20 bucks.

    Walmart's site is just greedy and malfunctioning so I would recommend you to never use it.

    Nah walmart just overprices some of their exclusives. Or could you take a screenshot of the product page?

    Just saw PvP's review and wow! Arcee really outshines the wave 1 figures by a longshot. Prime, Megs and Wave look like cake toppers compared to Arcee.

    Hmm the original face from the promo pics didn’t bug me as much as it did others, but that face in the review is definitely pretty bad. That doesn’t even look like a smirk anymore, looks like he’s waiting for someone to sit on a whoopee cushion. The eyes look way to exaggerated.

    Still, decent figure and I love the accessories. Buying the second wave of the RED line, but here’s hoping they really kick this line into gear if they want more than a lukewarm reception that the line currently has.

    I probably will only get him for the gun and the Energon crystal.

    That was my plan, too, but I don’t know. It’s certainly not a gut gun anymore. I might just go 3P instead.

    That shade of gold sucks, and the face is still horrible. They didn't even get the crystal's colour right.

    Also yeah, I was gonna buy it for the gun, but even that looks shit and half-baked. Depending on how Tigatron's looks I may buy two of him instead.

    RED is such a monumental disappointment. How'd they get Kingdom head sculpt so right and this one so wrong?

    I'm curious why Arcee didn't come with the energon crystal from Cheetor instead of the cube she comes with. That's how we always see dark energon on Prime, I don't think it was very frequently seen in cube form. Even just getting that cube in blue would make more sense. Hopefully they give us that dark energon shard with Knockout or if they do any other Prime Decepticons.

    Cheetor's face looks more like Dinobot's on this figure to me.

    He's so close, and yet so far. The weird face sculpt (definitely agree that he looks like Dinobot), bronze instead of gold, not a gut gun, and, now that I notice it, a reaaaally bright yellow make it a bit disappointing for me. It's mostly paint issues, so at least the mold is decent, besides the face and the (imo) too-small back wing-like protrusions. I'm also confused at the inclusion of the energon crystal, since it totally looks more like Dark Energon than the shiny blue Energon from the cartoon. Can't wait to see Knock Out, since Arcee looks pretty good.

    Man I am happy I got my preorder in for Arcee right when she was announced. Her and Knockout are the only ones I have interest in.

    I am... super disapointed by RED cheetor. There are a bunch of things wrong with it. I'm really not a fan of the back kibble at all. The rings at the top of the legs look really weird. The colour is not all that nice. Face is weird.

    It's just really disappointing. They went for very screen accurate, nicely painted figures for the rest.. and for cheetor went... somewhere..

    I'm a pretty easy to please guy, but this doesn't please me.
