Perfect Effect PE-DX01 RC 3 Image Gallery Showcases Arcee Homage Designs - Pre-Orders Now Open
Jack Q - Friday, January 20, 2012
Thanks to the third party maker Perfect Effect who are releasing the PE-DX01 RC 3 action figure we have many new looks at the the homage to G1 Arcee.
This one is likely to be one of the most exciting depictions of this character we have yet to see. Look for the two versions of this figure, Regular and Battle Versions, to be out in March for about $75 USD.
Get a look at the RC 3 figure in robot and alternate modes, design sketches and looks at the prototype figure compared with other deluxe class toys below.

Usually I cant wait for something to come out. But when the price is like this I'm disappointed that it's an April due date. It's not a good time of the year for me to be spending so much extra on non-essentials. And tax refund is already spoken for.
I'm pre ordering this along with Hegemon on the first
I am surprised by the price. This could be my first ever non-KO KO but I'll have to save up for it.
i think she looks great.....will definitely be picking this up.....leave to PE to make a great arcee...
Warbot Defender had die cast and it was really well done. I hope PE can do good with this.
nice. I could be into this.
Love their design, but I'm not too thrilled about the addition of die-cast.
BEYOND great looking. Leave it to Perfect Effect. I love the scale, I love that 3.75" figures can ride her, I love the weapons she comes with and I love the alt mode. Wasnt too keen that she was going to be a motorcycle but who cares now? She looks stunning. They've sold me one, bottom line... read more
I'm buying both versions. This is the best 3rd Party Arcee to date!
Yikes! I see that there are other characters in the artwork (which looks really nice btw) such as Bludgeon. Although initially I thought it may have been those Unicron's followers guys from the Marvel G1 comics.
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Lots of fun stuff going on this week! We announce the winners of our Twitter contest, we are giving away Titans Return Arcee and The Last Knight Valvotron! The voice cast for Power of the Prime was announced! We share our thoughts! Plus we speculate on rumored upcoming Transformers assortments. Also, there's a ton of other news this week including a heavy third party week, with new Combaticons, Aerialbots, and upgrade parts. We talk about the upcoming Movie Masterpiece Ironhide, new photos of Volcanicus and much, much more!
Coming from Weibo, we have some grey prototype images showing MechPlanet's small-scale Optimus Prime-alike. HS02 seems to be called "Mini Lider" and while the photo quality for many of these isn't great, it seems to be a decent representation of the character design. The photos we have show an energon axe and rifle, plus flip up panels on the forearm in a similar manner to the pop-up communicator screen from the Masterpiece. The chest is also conspicuously hinged, which probably means it has a matrix and storage space for it. You can find all these photos mirrored below!
We recently saw an unofficial, non-transforming, high detail action figure representing Optimus Prime from Transformers Prime by Iron Warrior. Iron Warrior has just shown off another upcoming figure of the same type, this one called "Strife 07" and based on Brawl from the 2007 Transformers movie. This figure likewise does not transform, but seems to focus on sculpt detail and articulation more. Unfortunately the provided photos don't represent the scale of the figure well, so it's unclear at this point whether Brawl will be appropriately large. You can check out the mirrored images below.
From Mastermind Creations, Collisus joins the Reformatted line. Standing about 8 inches in robot mode, Collisus features a unique paint application and is able to transform into a battle tank vehicle. This figure comes armed with a pair of cannon blasters that can be deployed in both robot and vehicle mode. The figure slated for release in April of 2019 for about $110 USD.
Zeta Toys still has a bit to offer us today. Direct from their Weibo we have two images of Armageddon, their unofficial Bruticus shown as a color testshot. The individual components are all represented in their respective colors, though the add-ons for the combined form look like they may still be works in progress - at least lacking some finishing paint details if not other color changes. The images themselves say that this is not necessarily a final deco for the assembled whole, but it certainly gets the idea across! Check out both photos mirrored below.
