Arcee has a very, very nice looking robot mode. Ignoring the terrible pink feet and lack of differentiating her face and arms from the areas that are normally white. I would hazard that the robot mode has a better sculpt than the T30 / LG version.
Now everything else about her is not good. Between repeating the G1 design (again) when the T30 / LG figure wasn't that long ago and we're getting something similar in Cyberverse and Masterpiece and the terrible half a car as a her "hoverboard" thing. People complained that the female Transformers sometimes don't look like they transform into anything when Arcee literally doesn't transform into anything. She hides under it like a blanket.
This new Arcee only increases my appreciation for the T30 toy. Levy what grievances you will at that toy, at least they didn't give up and make half the altmode an accessory that doesn't even look like anything except half the altmode.
Yeah, seeing as how I have the T30 version, I really don't see the need to get this figure. I'd rather a little bit of back kibble than literally removing half her altmode to "transform" her.
