    I'm still disappointed no one ever made a replacement Arcee head for Leia. She's the right height, and awful cheap now, thanks to the alternatives. With a better head and a partsforming vehicle rear end, she'd be a perfectly okay MP arcee.

    I believe she is on the release calendar that was posted recently for this year.

    I hope not. The design hasn't aged well. I went back and looked at it and it looks bad. They need to go back to the drawing board.

    Agreed. I’d like to see an Elita but not this one. I didn’t think it looked all that good even when it was announced. XTB can certainly do better.

    It’s the same case with any XTB figure, Deathsaurus, Kup. And with the virus everything is all kinda slower.

    Any updates to this? Do we have any 3rd party Elitas on the way yet this year?

    Yeah people are pretty on top of updating here, but the best thing you can do probably is follow XTB on Facebook. They've recently been making an effort to be more visible there, so that's likely the first place you'll see anything, and then it will come here. They haven't mentioned it in a long time so who knows where it's at currently.

    Maybe the design is in the trash bin where it belongs.

    Ok glad someone else thinks so. I know it was a really early proto or whatever but man it looked garbage. XTB is capable of way better so I have no doubt if they get around to working on it that it will end up being much better. In the meantime, Hasbro is retooling their WFC Arcee into Elita-1. I may not like it but my daughters will.

    I don't know about that. It looked rough all over and pretty panelly on the back but I thought she had serious potential. I don't think it would take much to take her from that really rough look to a really nice Elita figure.

    I'm probably biased a bit by XTB trying to do All The Things when we already have companies that are good at some of these things, meanwhile things XTB is good at that XTB seems to be slow-playing (finish the Stunticons sets first!). They could be capitalizing on their strengths instead of trying to Me Too the stuff other companies already do well enough, like fembots.

    For the past two years and this one XTB/KFC has only shown the ability to get out 3 releases all at the same time around this time and then disappear outside of numerous reissues. The next releases are the last two Junkions, then Dr. Egg and supposedly the trailer for Menasor. After that we see Kup and Springer whenever the hell they come out. At this point, with these companies and their procrastination I would not look past the next release. They have proven they operate on their own time and don't really seem concerned about moving anything forward. This company has shown in the past they can do a lot better but for some reason they like going backward.
