Takara Tomy Transformers Go Beast Hunters Arcee

15 01 2014

I passed on the Hasbro release for its horrid paint job but I knew deep down that Takara Tomy would give this lady the proper paint job she deserves. Sporting a much deeper blue violet scheme, with metallic pink trims, this Beast Hunters version of Arcee is a sweet sight to my eyes. She comes in a blister card package very much like her Hasbro counterpart.

The mold is pretty much a revision of the original deluxe mold with bat-like features.

No stickers need to be applied this time around which is step up from her original mold by Takara Tomy.
