    I only have Animated, Prime FE, Movie 1 Deluxe and ROTF Deluxe Arcees. Out of the 3, my favorite is Prime FE Arcee.

    Now, if I can only find Generations Arcee here...

    Hard to narrow down, as Arcee toys are kinda like Megatron toys, with tons of variation around a common theme. but my in-no-order top three would be Animated, Generations, and Prime-RID deluxe.

    MMC Arcee is where it's at man. She has sold me on the remold/retools. Excellent figure.

    Generations Arcee. Everything else either missed the mark (most 3rd party toys) or wasn't even really trying (Prime Arcee).

    TFPrime FE Arcee and MMC's Azalea. I'd probably give Azalea the edge though.

    To answer my own question, I think Animated Arcee is still my favorite.

    1st Prime Deluxe NYCC Arcee
    2nd Prime Deluxe First Edition Arcee
    3rd Generations Deluxe Arcee
    4th Prime Deluxe Arcee

    (I'd put 2014 Botcon Flamewar in there since it uses an arcee mold, but even though I just look at it as Arcee, it's technically not the same character)

    Animated, Prime First Edition, and TF'07 all put in strong showings but I think Generations is the winner for me. Great car mode, great bot mode, fun transformation, accessories out the wazoo, and she doesn't feel cheap or like she was compromised in any way by budget. It's an impressive showing.

    iGear's Delicate Warrior still remains my default G1 Arcee. Generations/Legends Arcee is a great updated Arcee for Classics. MMC Azalea seems to be the best in terms of an IDW-ish Arcee.

    That said, my fave Arcee still remains TFP First Edition Arcee. Always did like the character from the TF Prime show and the toy, while not 100% in likeness, does a great job in capturing the character. PRID Arcee has her charms too in being more accurate in terms of sculpting in some places, but the off-blue color and slightly dumb-down engineering quality means she takes a backseat to the FE version for me.

    Generations Arcee is good. I haven't had it long enough to say it's the best. But I'd lump it together with Animated and Movie 1 deluxe. Movie 1 deluxe Arcee was an awesome toy that seems to get no recognition.

    Impossible to answer! Argh!

    If I could only keep one, I'd probably go with TFP FE Arcee. <3
