Transformers Prime: Arcee Robots in Disguise (RiD) Deluxe - better than FE!



Transformers Prime RiD Arcee has a fairly simple transformation and a really clean vehicle mode. She's better looking from the front and smaller sized (better scaled) compared to her First Edition. Sadly the backpack ruins the look of her bot mode. Her mold is better looking that the first edition and more TV show accurate. I wasn't a fan of the Transformers Prime show but the toy line definitely has me hooked. It's a great looking toy of one of the main cast. If you missed Transformers Prime First Edition Arcee then Robots in Disguise Arcee is a fairly good alternative. If you already have the First Edition, like I do, I prefer this version and still recommend picking up RiD Arcee!

Score: 4 out of 5

Great to know, the FE looked good but the size killed it.

What kills the RID for me is the giant wings that are on her back. If they folded down or tucked away somehow, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

I wish the wings came off Arcee's back and not her backpack so if you disconnected the backpack she'd still have her wings.

But from the front, she looks great

I don't think the RiD version is as screen accurate as the FE version.

I agree. The FE version especially from Takara is a better representation. The mold itself is more accurate in general but Takara captures her colours more closely. I will stick with my FE.

Re: Transformers Prime: Arcee Robots in Disguise (RiD) Deluxe - better than FE!

I haven't picked up RID Bee or Cliff, and I'm trying really hard not to pick up RID Arcee either.

Let me know when they repaint her as a different character like they did Bee and I might eventually own the mold, but for right now I'm trying to avoid having an army of Autobot Clones to do battle with my Decepticon Clones... AKA Vehicons.

After looking at images, I plan on getting PRID Arcee alongside the PFE version.

As for scale, well, I picked up the PCyb Legion Arcee, which seems to work very well alongside the Revealer/Deluxe cars.
