Transformers: Studio Series Deluxe Class Arcee, Chromia, and Elita-1 3-Pack

Arcee, Chromia, and Elita-1 are all brand new Legends Class molds. Hasbro gets an A for effort in doing three different new molds. Unfortunately their grade for execution is far lower.

Arcee

Chromia

Elita-1

Their motorcycle modes are all pretty great. Their robot modes could have been a lot better. I like that they all come with stands so they can stand up, though it’s hard to get them balanced, they tend to want to tip over. The instructions show the part on Chromia’s shoulder going on Arcee. For some reason Elita-1 has a tire for a hand. That must come in wheely handy. 🙂 Chromia and Elita-1 are a little better than Arcee. Arcee’s legs are only connected to her body on one side, which looks stupid.

Overall: These should have been Scout Class. If they were going for scale accuracy, they seem too small to me in robot mode and too big in vehicle mode. Scout class toys would have given them a lot more design options. It could have been worse, they could have used one mold for all three, but I can’t really be excited about these.

Thanks for reading!
