So we are asking you to vote on your favorite in our poll below to see which Arcee figures are the favorites among fans.

None of the above. The best one is indeed none of them. It's the one that none of these "thieves" seem to have to compare to the rest. That one being Animated Arcee. It IS the best Arcee out of the ones listed and many not listed.
So:

Animated Arcee. I like it more the more Arcee toys are made. Seriously though, get this mold by any means necessary. I'd say get the KO but it's more difficult to find than the official figure. I have all three colors of the KO and I love them. Chromia is my favorite out of the three. I'd get Dragstrip and Minerva but damn are they expensive.

SS BB Arcee. I don't have it yet but damn it looks good. I can't wait to get it.

TR Arcee. Not the best but it's one of the best to just play with. Most TR toys are like that. I like Takara Legends Blurr and Kup better than their SS86 versions for instance. Ultimately, it goes so high because it's the only one that is a Headmaster. It also does fairly well looking like Arcee while being what is essentially just a pink Blurr.

Authentics Arcee. This toy has no right be this good. It's a budget toy. Yet here it is being better than most other Arcee toys.

SS86 Arcee. I like that it fixes all the things I hated about T30 Arcee.

NYCC Arcee. The Prime 1st Edition mold is really good but lacks several things to be great like 5mm port hands to start.

Earthrise Arcee. It has all of the articulation and looks good. The backpack is odd but I customized mine to be more to my liking. I cut out the hood from behind her and glued it to the "hoverboard" part. Now the hoverboard looks like something as it has a front now. But most importantly, the back kibble is much cleaner and looks like it should with only the two pylons behind each shoulder. The hoverboard even ends up looking like Weijiang Alcee's "shield" so it can also be used like a shield now. 

Energon Arcee. Fun little bot. Arms are trash. Modified mine so that she the 5mm ports go all the way through the arms so that she can hold her bow more naturally.

Wonderfest 2008 Arcee. Those wheel boob things just don't work well enough in toy form for her to go higher. I mainly just wanted another Arcee to put above the next entry. I do actually like this toy though. I like how the missile becomes the exhaust pipe and that the bow becomes the seat area. Great way to reduce some of what could've been kibble as seen on the FE and PRID Arcee molds.

T30 Arcee. It is NOT nor has it ever been a good toy. People need to stop putting this trash on a pedestal. It looks good but is just a horrible toy. The legs are awful. The hands suck, all three designs. The face sucks as it doesn't look like the face of a robot. She looks outright silly holding any weapons because of the face and the hands but mostly the face. The legs are awful, yes they're that bad I had to put it twice. On the opposite side though, the transformation is amazing. I will give it that. I love the way that the legs incorporate into the car. It doesn't looks bad doing it too. It just makes the legs awful though. The torso is bad too.

Cyberverse Arcee. I don't actually hate this toy. I like it better than a lot of these subjectively. Objectively though, it's just not a good toy. That backpack is really bad. Not as bad as the last video I see with this in it as the "thief" had to intentionally mistransform the backpack in order for it to look that bad. The flap behind the head limits articulation as well. The whole thing is just dragged down by that backpack. It has potential to be better though as the bot itself is really good just like Earthrise Arcee. But that one can loose the backpack.

I don't collect MP figures so I have no opinion on MP Arcee.

@Joe Velez Many very good points! Thanks. And, yeah I put the "none" option on for that very reason. I agree we've not had the right figure yet for one reason or another.

I would have included Animated Arcee, but they changed the paint so much it is not really in line with the traditional G1 look.

I’m voting MP Arcee because I do believe this one is the best out there, but I acknowledge that the price point is a bit much for most collectors. If there was no MP, I’d have to go with Takara Legends Arcee. It had the best mold of the smaller versions, and the colors were better, as there were no jarring black bits. I’m finding it hard to believe that anyone would vote for the Earthrise mold, as the alt mode is a bar of soap

    • By this point, most collectors should have at least one G1 Soundwave in their collection. While many could see this 40th-anniversary release as another reissue, the animation-accurate colors and detailing should give it a special place alongside all the other Soundwave reissues, if not becoming THE reissue to have.  
    • So uh...that certainly doesn't look like Knockout. Breakdown from Bulkhead..........I'm not really sure how I feel about that. The Wrecker hammer makes sense now though as it was designed like Breakdown's hammer. And now here is a Breakdown utilizing it. It's just that this mold is even less Breakdown than it was Bulkhead. There's not many other options available though. Given Breakdown's fate, maybe Trashmaster would've been more appropriate. But really, that's the only other mold they could've even tried using for this.  So Windsweeper does come with the Targetmasters. That's a shame. I was hoping for some cool new guns or something. Maybe even if they put yet another set of Minerva's guns in or something. Like maybe put a set of the same guns in this box then the other two of the same can be in the other. It would've been even better had they decoed these to match Spinister like I theorized back when the Mayhem Attack Squad was first leaked to be getting new figures. Poor Ransack only got a new head yet here's Barrage and Chopshop with more than just new heads. They also got new "beast mode heads", to simplify the wording, as well as new beast mode legs. Barrage even got a new transformation even if it is just a Universe 2.0 Sideswipe/Sunstreaker thing. At least he gains butterfly joints as a result though. So I really think Venom will be using Kickback now and just have new legs to go with the new head/s. It's not like all these Insecticons even have six legs as it is so it wouldn't be out of place for Venom not to have six legs either. Bombshell and Barrage don't have six legs. Shrapnel has either four or six depending on what you count while Chopshop has six or eight depending on what you count. If you count six legs for Shrapnel then that means Chopshop has eight. I guess Barrage has six legs but he can't utilize that other pair of legs as legs though which is why they're being used to bulk up the gun instead. But it's not as though Kickback's new Venom legs couldn't have another set of little legs on them so he has the full six though. Only time will tell as I'm just doing my usual rambling.  This being Breakdown instead of Knockout makes me wonder about the Bludgeon listing now. Or even the leader Thundertron listing for the Star Seekers. I was thinking about that the other day if it was just a Thundertron colored Tigerhawk. Wouldn't that just be toy colors Tigerhawk though? lol White and blue instead of white, brown and purple. Again, only time will tell.  Oh and while it's nice to see Smashdown finally get another use, I don't think this was the place for it. And damn did that Insecticon set sell out fast. Didn't even have a chance. Got the email at 1:08, read it and went to Pulse at 1:17 and it was already sold out. I had a chance at the other set at that point but I figured since I had to wait on Amazon for the one set, might as well get both there. Jackie! One more thing. I read the listing for them on Pulse (and here) and it's claiming that those Double Targetmasters have arm and leg articulation. Someone better change that or someone's going to try and cause a stink about it. You know someone will. It's low hanging fruit.
