Titans Return - ARCEE!

Transformers: Titans Return - Hascon Exc Arcee w/ Ultra Magnus - Hasbro 2017

This Arcee figure has a very frustrating history for me. At first, I didn't want her at all. As pink redeco of the Titans Return Blurr, this was precisely the kind of Transformer I tried to avoid. She was a convention exclusive, and she was using a male body.. a recipe for meh. But then I picked up the Nautica figure and suddenly I had a change of heart. This body appeared way more androgynous than I expected and I regretted not trying to get Arcee. Then, in true flip-flopping fashion, I again decided not to get her when she was $24.99 on the hasbrotoyshop and toysrus websites for months. Then she sold out, and I suddenly had to have her. I'm not sure how much I ended up paying, but I eventually snagged her on eBay. I have a hunch that this Arcee is the last of her kind. In recent years, there has been a major push for female-specific body molds. Sometimes a repurposed male buck yielded decent results, but the gender-consistent options now available probably make that a thing of the past. Let's check out Arcee below!
























Arcee came with two blaster guns.








Arcee has a single removable piece of kibble (that forms the nose of her vehicle form). In all the packaging and insert materials, she wears this on her left forearm.




She can also wear it on her back like a backpack.









Her head transforms into a headmasters Leinad.




Arcee's body is a retooled Titans Return Blur.











Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here she is with Nautica, another fembot who shares the same buck.




My ever-growing Arcee collection. I excluded all the dark pink and blue ones for aesthetics. From Left to Right: NYCC 2011 Prime Arcee, Dx9 LeahOcular Max Azalea, Reformatted Azalea, Fans Toys Rouge, Iron Factory Pink Assassin, Hasbro Generations Arcee, Toy World Leia, Heroes of Cybertron, and Titans Return Arcee.






Cheers!
