    When you finally push the mild-mannered mechanic too far.

    No they don't, did you see Arcee's "hover board"?

    Arcee looks fantastic!... and then you look at her feet and realize she's standing on the entire back half of her car mode. Honestly though I'd rather have this compromise for a fantastic looking bot mode, I just wish they could've been more elegant about her "hoverboard". Skylynx looks fantastic as does Scorponok and Fastrack but honestly of these reveals Arcee and Skylynx are the ones that excite me. It does look like the "hoverboard" can be attached to her back if you want but it'll make it much bigger and back heavy. I'm also not a fan of her gun being trans blue, that looks a bit ridiculous. They really nailed the bot mode though, certainly more than I can say for the masterpiece. The vehicle mode looks great too.

    She doesn’t partsform last I checked; the leaked description said those pieces were removable for a cleaner look, but I don’t think it’s a case where the whole back of the vehicle pops off like Cliffjumper

    Haha, not concerned about the hoverboard. I've personally wanted a hoverboard since BTTF II came out, so good for Arcee.

    Hover boards don't have two seats and a windshield.

    why was it unforgivable when Clifjumper did this but with Arcee it's fine?

    (They're also not real, so maybe they do..or could?)

    Either way, I don't mind it. If it's not your thing, then yeah. Not your thing.

    Because her design kinda warrants it while Cliffjumpers most certainly does not.

    im one of the ones that doesnt mind it on cliffjumper, but judging by the images and product description the answer is that on cliffjumper it HAS to be removed whereas on arcee it CAN be removed

    That's the first pic I've seen of the new ER Arcee. That will replace my MMC one on my shelf! That looks great!
