TFclub has posted images of a testshot of the Takara Tomy version of the Transformers Animated Arcee figure. The differences with this figure are obvious with her signature pink deco being replaced with red as well as additional color on her face. Click the thumbnail to view all the images.
That brownish red and lack of mettalic pink still makes her less attractive than the US TRU version. That autobot emblem seems huge on her chest too. The paint on the feet really makes no difference overall, they should have stuck to black instead of brown, and maybe done up the arms a little bit better for the fingers at least. So I'll stick to the one I have instead of getting two. Here's hoping their hot rod still looks good though.
And dammit hasbro, where's our Paradron Medic repaint, and Elita-1 Repaint?
More detailed feet, but not a more detailed face. Way to be, Takomy!
Oh come on, as if thats the final product.
I'm pre ordering one anyways, I don't think I'll be able to get ahold of one otherwise.
Kinda looks like Animated Red Alert
Read through the thread, bro . We already know what the final product will look like, and it differs quite a bit from the test shot (that is quite possibly even an old Hasbro one)..
You don't know that. There is no reason for senseless optimism when reasoned pessimism is much more accurate.
This is the Hasbro Prototype not Takaratomy:
proven by this image right here
The feet look much better. There were a few red faced prototypes of the US version as well.
Yeah people forget so easily, and don't realize that Takara's would never look like this (I mean it still has a silver symbol).
I like it. The mold looks great and the red colour makes her look fierce, instead of some soft robo pin up.
As long as she's acurate to the cartoon, I don't really mind the red body, but the face…
Well, I guess everyone just kind of forgot about the official TakTomy pic we got last month.
So here it is again:
So, as you can see, no red face and some extra paint apps.
okay guys, remember to be a little more PC when posting…
IT'S CALLED A POWER SURGE
(but on her, it doesn't look so good )
i like the red, body, on this, but i prefer the pink face on the american one. so blah. i guess i'll get this, since finding one at tru's will be tougher then buying the japanese one
Wow, somebody overdid a trip to the tanning bed! :3
It's just an unfinished prototype. I'll reserve judgement on Takara's official photos. I also await Impossible Toys Arcee.
the red face, just looks funny
Uuuugh. That's so ugly and so disappointing all at the same time. I still haven't found my US version. If I didn't have any luck tracking one down I was just going to import this one, but it looks like total garbage.
well if they renamed her as 1 of the other female characters then sure if they go with this, but not arcee. i'll still get it and rename her myself.
I'm not a fan of the pink face but definitely not a fan of the tomato red!
