Transformers: Prime ARCEE Miniature PVC Figure!

Transformers: Prime Miniature 3" PVC Arcee figure - Unknown Manufacturer 2014
I've been seeing this little figure popping up on eBay from Chinese sellers (listed as a "cake topper") for quite a few months now.  I saved it in my Watch list and kind of forgot about it.  Then a few weeks ago I finally took the plunge.  Not that it was much of a plunge since I only paid a few dollars total.  I'm really glad I did get her though because it turns out that she's a very fun and detailed little figure that just happens to be in scale with the Heroes of Cybertron figures from the early 2000s (a massive perk in my opinion).  I often find myself pondering why this version of Arcee is getting so much merchandising.  I boil it down to the fact that she's finally a headline character.  She's surprisingly featured in every graphic for the cartoon.  But I also think a big part of it has to do with the fact that she's blue now.  As comfortable as toy companies seem to be getting with female characters in "boy" toy lines, I think pink characters will continue to suffer the same old exclusion for many years to come.  I'll take what I can get though.  Pink, Blue, Polka Dot, whatever.  Let's check out Arcee below!


My Arcee came loose.  I don't know what this figure's origin is.  If it's a true cake topper, maybe she'll show up loose in bins ay Party City.  I've seen similar figures that end up as pieces in a board game.  Who knows.  If anyone ever discovers her origins, let me know so I can update this post.


Here she is with the Heroes of Cybertron Arcee and Paradron Medic.  She fits in perfectly.

Time for a Group Shot!
