Pretty alright figure considering it's based on a character who wasn't in the movie., and they pulled the design off quite well.
The motorcycle for was good. The transformed version was a little weird. Her weapon wouldn't stay on her arm, the feet didn't provide a lot of stability when standing, and the back wheel seemed looser to me when split then combined. All in all, it wasn't badly done.
Pretty nice motorcycle transformer. Not based on an actual movie character, but based on a model. She has an ugly face but looks like she's wearing a beret so that's kind of nice. Good transformation.
Arcee was originally going to appear in the 2007 Transformers movie, though was replaced with Ironhide, as Michael Bay felt it would be confusing to have a female robot. Despite thid though, Arcee did get a deluxe toy based on her concept art. Arcee is an OK looking robot, though a have 3 problems with it. 1, I'm not really keen on the legs, as they look too much like woman's boots, but this is just a nitpick. 2, the back wheels of the bike splits in half for robot mode to kinda form breasts, which is accurate to the concept art, though they get in the way of the arm articulation a bit, and if you leave them up, they're inaccurate. 3, there's nowhere to store the crossbow weapon in robot mode, and can only be displayed with it on her arm. The bike mode is quite good, and looks just like a perfectly good motorcycle, though being a deluxe bike, she's not in scale with any other figure in any of the movie lines, which is a bit unfortunate. Arcee is a quite decent movie toy of a character who was going to appear, but didn't, and they made a good job with her toy, like Wreckage. Arcee gets a 7/10.
While high on kibble, this figure is a great movie-verse style Arcee. Great alt mode, interesting transformation and a robot mode full of style, Arcee's only real flaws come from her articulation. She is a classic case of "parts crashing into parts" when you try to pose her, and the amount of odd kibble tends to help gravity bring her down more often than not. Still, she's a fairly nice figure, and about 1000X better than her ROTF counterpart.
Not fond of this toy. Robot mode is disappointing, but the transformation, colours and alt mode are ok.
