    It definitely looks awesome, comes with die cast metal as well. The price is $98. I may get it.

    Any particular reason she comes with love beads?

    A bit wrong, IMO...

    I appreciate the effort but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who's tired of 3rd party companies releasing a Not-Arcee using the same old, not really working figure style with the non supporting legs and such.

    I was wondering the same thing, especially considering where the beads plug into. This figure looks better in sculpt and quality then Valkyrie, IMO. Will wait to see more to give final judgement though.

    I'm personally curious to see if the rumours that Hasbro are working on a Classics Arcee come to anything.

    Otherwise, Animated Arcee is an excellent toy and a great representation of car-Arcee.

    Looks better than the Valkyrie, but $98?! YIKES! Easy pass for me.

    No brainier for me, already preordered looks great, I like the stand, but I kind of wish you didn't have to remove that part to plug it in.

    well as far as the figure goes looks amazing, and the best arcee 3rd party imo. But where the hell do they get off charging more than Warbot for it, really, 98$ for now I'm passing thats just way too much

    I love how they blatantly show this thing is very unstable without the provided stand. At least they're being upfront about it. After being burned on the Impossible Toys mold (which, btw seems to have been the basis for this fig - they are FAR too similar), I'm very hesitant here. The head sculpt looks a little better now, too, for some reason, but... Meh.

    I dunno. After shelling out the ridiculous amount of cash for Impossible Toys' Arcee, Paradron Medic AND TFCon Nightbird, I think I've had my fill of loose fembots. :tongue:

    I actually really like this figure. Much better than Valkyrie in my opinion. I think Valkyrie fits more with G1 figures, while this should fit nicely with classics/henkei/universe/generations. My biggest gripe about this so far is how the arms are just "fold them up any way you can as long as you can't see them" under the car. Next would be the price.

    As much as I want this, I'll wait for some reviews before I make a final decision.

    Definitely looks like the best of the 3rd-part Arcees, in terms of design and aesthetics. The head sculpt is great, the best I've seen for a G1 Arcee figure. Still, I'd rather wait to read some reviews about the quality (i.e. joint looseness, plastic quality) first before taking the plunge.

    I'm also surprised the review didn't show her posed next to another deluxe figure, just to give a sense of her size. From that shot of her with iGear Prime in the original announcement thread, she looks a bit big to me.

    Damn after years of yearning for an Arcee toy the fans are getting the reiteration of the female bot, one after another. This is pricey..... I have to wait for a review after hearing the reviews on the impossible arcee mold. It would be interesting if Hasbro will make a classic version of Arcee...

    We'll wait and see.... but it's not the priority with the 2010 Takara campaign too much on hand...
