Transformers Studio Series 86 Arcee Concept Images & Details - T30 Explained

Hasbro's Transformers designer, Evan Brooks @naveskoorb, has shared his concept design notes on the Transformers Studio Series 86 Arcee figure. Many fans have wondered why the T30 Arcee was used here instead of the Earthrise mold. Even explains their selection process and the reaons behind the result. Read on to get the full details on Transformers Studio Series 86 Arcee with images to follow.

Hi Transformer fans!

I probably should of done this when pre-orders popped up but I wanted to show off our Studio Series 86 Arcee.

This figure is a partial of the T30 Arcee (as you all have guessed) and there are no earthrise parts present.

(Please excuse the sample that had the factory stamps on it. Final product will not have those.)

We had a limited budget for new parts and I wanted to get an 86 Arcee in the line so I asked Takara "I don't think we have enough parts to make the earthrise Arcee look like an 86 Arcee. How would the Takara team feel if we used the T30 Arcee as a base?" And that's what we did.

This marvelous feat of engineering is brought to you by Yuki san who blew it out of the park.

I'm going to keep this short since I'll do a more thorough design breakdown later but I just wanted to show off how much character you can get with her articulation.

She has a New head, forearms, torso, legs and the rear of the car.

Her transformation even gives her an Ab crunch that really helps with her posing.

Also she has a Gerwalker mode!

Haha, I hope you all enjoy this figure and thanks for supporting the SS86 line!

It's funny that the spots they redid were the exact spots I mentioned on another site back when this was first teased needed to be redone on the T30 figure for it to actually be a good toy. Yet, they still designed her to have those shitty hands despite redoing them. There's no reason for her to have those open hands that don't work well, are fragile and barely hold the gun they're designed to hold. Just give her regular fists like Legacy Arcee. I hope I'm wrong and they learned their lesson to make them work better and be less fragile. It looks like there's more molding on the inside to help grasp things better than the Combiner Hunters version's hands were able to do despite looking similar to those.

Although, I don't think it's actually a new head. It's a new clavicle and neck area but the head itself looks exactly the same except they dummied out the light piping. I'm not and have never been a fan of that T30 head sculpt but I think with the painted eyes and lips, it looks slightly better.
