Reviews

  1. The figure itself is great and a great homage to the G1 figure. Vehicle mode is OK. Its essentially a shell to hide the figure and half of the top is removed to show the figure. Mine is displayed as a figure and I doubt I'll display in vehicle mode. I knew this way before the purchase as I've seen videos of the transformation. Highly recommended for any G1 fans 
  2. don't bother trying to transform. the prosses is fiddley and even when she's in car mode she wont roll because her knee and breast plate will scrape on the ground. so if you get this just leave her in robot mode
  3.  I missed the Earthrise release somehow, so I'm glad she got a re-release in Kingdom. Not sure about the wisdom of that, truth be told as she's peg warming something rotten, along with the SS86 Autobot cars. Still at least it spares me aftermarket chancers ripping me off.

    Leaving aside the parts forming for a minute (General consensus of fandom - this was acceptable for Cliffjumper, but not Arcee. I despair.), the robot mode is actually rather lovely - so long as you don't attach the back end of the car to her back. The Generations toy is arguably better, but I just can't get past that toy's weird hips that look like she couldn't stop a pig in an alley. It's nicely proportioned and she's got a sweet face and is incredibly posable. Not sure why her gun is transparent. I suppose I should be glad it's not pink.

    Transformation is what you'd expect for an Arcee toy - just tucking the robot mode up inside the shell of the car body. The car's alright. It looks a bit like something you'd see at a soapbox derby and isn't quite what I'd like. But then, when I think about it, if Arcee transformed as she should, she'd be more of a Voyager class Amazonian than the size zero supermodel we're all used to. That might be my preferred option. It'd certainly do away with parts forming of this extent. I think I'd prefer the parts forming if the back of the car did something more like Siege Shockwave and could be more of a proper flying platform thing, rather than, well, the back of a car folded out for her to stand on.
