The guys at Impossible Toys
who made the Animated PVCs for Sumdac, Sari and other fan projects have updated their new site with an interesting note:
These past months we have been very busy making many changes with our group to better serve you and the time is now here, so expect great things on a steady basis. So here is a hint of things to come.
The website also shows two images of a transformable G1 style Arcee figure, which is still in its stark white prototype stage. Could a real G1 toy be on in the works?
This may be a nice alternative for those who don't want to wait for the Hasbro-produced Transformers Animated Arcee
figure. Because who knows when that will be out.
We followed up William from Impossible Toys to get some more information on the project:
TFormers: What size / scale will it be?
William: The size is about 13 cm, we made the scale to fit perfect with the 86 movie toys and classics/universe,
TFormers: Do you have a price or release date for this yet?
William: Not yet but we are aiming for the end of the year as right now we are in the prototype stage, the photos you see are just the prototype so we can test the parts fit and make any changes needed based on fan feedback and areas that need to be improved.
TFormers: Will the item be assembled or a model kit?
William: This will be a 100% finished product that you can take out of the box and play with,
TFormers: Will it be painted like G1 Arcee?
William: The main colors are pink and white.
TFormers: Is this a new original mold?
William: This is a new mold.
I would also like to add these are prototype pictures and they did not turn out great do to it being white, So it is hard to see much of the details and articulation as we did not paint it due to moving parts will cause friction, And some parts might need to be improved so many things can change from now till we reach the final product. So at this point we are more concerned with function and getting things right.
