It's supposed to be a remold of Arcee! Even I figured it out, gah!

Actually, I figured this out when I first got Arcee and saw the concept art for the third bike months ago. I just never had a need to buy a second bike until Hasbro showed the blue-bike repaint at the weekend toyfair.

Gee man, I am sure happy that I didn't buy one of the bikes. Now I also won't need to buy the others for the combined mode, which I slowly get tired off because of the damn long wait.

I really like the asymmetrical aspects of the femmebot. The ninja bike totally rox too :)

I could never stand their look. Finding out the third was a repaint (and of the wrong one, no less) just made me shrug my shoulders. Kinda felt for those hoping for a whole new figure, but that was about all.

I don't own this one, so I'm not entirely sure what you did (though I can see the tire in the left arm is probably new placement). Certainly matches the picture well enough.

It's done, as it goes. I'm not really happy with the paint, plus the thing is a big floppy mess. A large part of that is due to the mold being junk, though. I dunno... it just feels like a step backwards from my previous projects. :(

It's definitely the way it should be remolded, or at least the start of it. The combined mode is an incomprehensible mess and not worth acknowledging.

Better'n I could do, for sure.

Heavier highlights in a related shade of hot pink, maybe?

(pls excuse the crap lines- it's a quick job, done with the touchpad of my laptop. It's meant to get the idea across, not look faboo.)

Might want to go lighter colour/finer lines than I did here. Touchpads are clumsy.
