When she was announced, i was kinda surprised Hasbro took this long to release a G1 Arcee. But hey, why look gift horse in the mouth? I'm just glad i finally found one without paying scalper prices. So how does Arcee stacks up to the recent femmebots Hasbro released? Very very well actually.
Like Windblade, Arcee is a totally new mold. This mold though, might be one of the best deluxe i've seen in awhile. Anyway, Arcee's altmode is some kind of futuristic car from her G1 days. It's sleek and pink, pretty eye catching.
But her bot mode is where she shines, leagues above the poorly executed Windblade. She looks really good even when considering she's wearing her altmode as a backpack with her very feminine silhouette with lots of curls and primarily pink colour scheme.
Her head is sculpted well, with soft rounded eyes, small mouth and narrow nose. She looks gentle mother instead of the psychotic bot IDW made ( the less said bout that, the better ).
What really blew me away though, is articulations that she has. It's so so good, she's able to recreate probably any pose you want her in without much trouble. This is mainly thanks to the incredible range of motion in her elbows and knees.
Arcee comes with some pretty nice accessories as well. Though my Arcee is the open fist variant and have problems holding her accessories without looking doofy. I had to shave down some of the plastic so she can hold them proper, still a bit too tight though. First up, she comes with a small pistol and a hand gun.
She can store on her hips which is a nice touch.
And she also comes with a pair of blue translucent swords. Though she doesn't look as good holding them as much as the guns in my opinion.
She's great! Probably the best deluxe released in awhile. Any fans of transformers should have her in their collection. I can't recommend her enough!
Anyway, thanks for viewing!
