    I'm somewhat interested in Arcee as a standalone figure to mess around with. I would love to see them do the Season 1 cast of TF: Prime, but unless they announce a larger R.E.D. size class (which seems unlikely, given how poorly received the line has been so far) there's just no way they can pull off anything remotely resembling proper scale. Given that Arcee is six inches, characters like Megatron and Optimus would need to be 8-inch figures AT LEAST.

    At least. Optimus in the show is a tad more than twice her height, so he'd have to be like 12 inches tall to be in scale and Megs would be even bigger. As much as I want accurate scaling, I doubt they will be. But I agree, I will probably get the entire Prime cast if they make them just to pose and mess around with. Hopefully they do an Airachnid later on that will actually scale with Arcee.

    Yeah, but PRID starscream was already pretty damn accurate to the show... aside from arcee having wheels on her calves, she was too?

    Maybe they're just testing the waters with the fembot, but even i would be out on R.E.D. of other lines save G1... beasts are already a pass for me.

    Like you 2 above, if they don't scale, I don’t want em'.

    18" fully posable Bruticus though... I'm in.

    Honestly, I could live without perfect scale. But Optimus being the same height as Arcee would just kill it for me. It’s a shame HasTak put themselves in a box by marketing R.E.D. as a line of “6 inch figures” as if it were a selling point. That works fine for DC, Marvel, and Star Wars, but I can’t think of any Transformers cartoon, movie, or comic where all or even most of the characters were the same height and build.

    Yeah, honestly this line had a ton of potential, but so far they've not really held up to any of it. Like they're supposed to be as accurate as possible, so why not make them accurately-scaled too? Unless they aren't planning on doing any figures outside of Arcee and Knockout and didn't see any point in making her smaller? I collect Hasbro's Marvel Legends line too and there they have figures more or less to scale, even outside of BAFs. I wish they'd do that for this one too. Bumblebee probably has the same issue. It's supposed to be 6 inch scale, not entirely 6 inch figures.

    What?

    I don't think so since the line is 6 inches.

    And the Decepticon badge is a sticker peeling up on one corner.

    Totally. She is the standout figure in the entire line. None of the rest seem really necessary or even perfect in terms of screen accuracy. Either there’s been a ton of fairly close screen accurate versions already (Prime, Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream), or the RED figure didn’t quite get the look right (Cheetor).

    But Arcee delivers on what this line is said to be all about. More please!

    UGH! SHE'S TOO TALL! Now I have to decide whether to buy a figure that doesn't scale with anything, or wait in the forlorn hope that they do scaled versions of the entire Season 1 cast.

    It's pretty much a given that they do G1 figures, but they already have good representations, especially now with the new WFC stuff, which gives mostly accurate representations of both modes. Plus they're too blocky for good articulation schemes. Prime and other lines had some good figures, but a lot that really suffered from the transformation than G1 ever did. I'm so happy we have accurate representations of those characters now. I'm pretty sure the majority of people complaining that they don't transform are G1 fans. I don't think this line is really for those people.
