Transformers Cyberverse - ARCEE!

Transformers
 Cyberverse Adventures (Macadam Series) - Arcee - Hasbro 2020

The year of Arcee continues! It's been such a joy seeing so many female Transformers on the shelves these last few years. And it's especially nice to be getting so many different representations of Arcee. As the prime representative of the fembots, I always assume her presence is a reliable indicator of figures yet to come. For instance, this Cyberverse Adventures Arcee will almost certainly be retooled into a Chromia or a new Windblade. The tooling that went into the body is too good not to be re-used. While this figure is generally in the same scale as the Warrior Class Slipstream and Windblade, it is a big step forward in quality. The sculpt, paint, transformation, and poseability are impressive and more at the collector-level than the previous figures which definitely seemed geared towards kids. There are two more Arcees due out this year (Earthrise Deluxe and Masterpiece) plus the Tiny Turbo Changer and any other surprised we might see (Funko?). It's an exciting time. Let's check out Arcee below!






















Arcee's articulation is pretty great. 
Her robot body is essentially a separate piece from the vehicle kibble so you get a really great range of poseability.





Arcee comes with a pink gun and two blue energy effects. 
The energy pieces come packaged in a way that makes them very likely to be curved unnaturally. 









Arcee comes with the Shoulders and Mace of the Build-a-Figure Macadam.






























Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here she is with two other modern animated versions of Arcee, the 2011 NYCC Exclusive Prime version, and the 2010 Transformers Animated version.




And with the Titans Return and Generations version.






Cheers!

  1. Thanks for posting all the different angle pics of this figure. I'm still a bit on the fence about her. Loved the design when I first saw it face-on, but that enormous butt-backpack... I'm wondering if I can knock a pin out to make the lower portion of the backpack removable.
