    I just recently got my first ever female Transformers, Prime Airachnid, Legends Windblade, and PotP Slash with Chromia in the mail. With fembot toys becoming more prevalent in recent years, I was just curious what fembots others have collected, those you want, and which female Transformers you would like to see either get issued new figures or those characters who have never had toys be given one? What are your general thoughts on female Transformers?

    I’m looking forward to the new female combiner building up around Elita-1. I presume her limbs will be entirely characters from The Search for Alpha Trion with the two unnamed thus far being Chromia, Lancer, or Greenlight.

    I would like to see a new Airazor figure as well as a more accurate Nautica. A Solstar deco Stardrive would be pretty cool. Also, some original Decepticon (not just redecoed) women in the CHUG line is a must.

    It's one of the things that got me back into more serious TF collecting. I'm glad they're becoming more of the norm these days, it's one of the things that will help endure Transformers to newer generations and make it more inclusive for female fans, especially little ones.

    My first official one was buying Transmetal 2 Blackarachnia when that came out.

    As a heads-up, you can still probably find the Victorion set online for cheaper than it's 99 dollar suggested price. Repaints, true, but the new headsculpts and the details for Victorion herself go a long way.

    I definately want more female TFs, especially Decepticons. Looking forward to finally getting an official Elita-One and some other fem-bots to combine her with, though.

    Takara Nightbird is worth looking into. Such an awesome repaint of Arcee with a new headsculpt.

    I honestly never really looked at them specifically as female Transformers, but it's nice to see some variation.
    The only ones I ever specifically went for are all the Blackarachnia versions. I'm only two short from a full collection (BW Returns and Kreon).

    The exclamation point made me think this was going to be a musical of some kind, and not gonna lie, little disappointed.

    Don't truly care unless they're otherwise good figures.

    I'm not going to go out of my way to purchase a figure just because it's either a fapmaterial or a representation of diversity or whatever else.

    A figure must be good in any way, a girlbot or a guybot doesn't matter to me.

    Off the top of my head, so far I have Transmetal 2 Blackarachnia, a mix of some of the small Arcee mold from the Energon and 2007 movie line, 2007 Movie deluxe Arcee based on that unused model,Cybertron Thunderblash (missing her gun and missiles since it was a purchase from Frank 'N'Sons in So Cal), 1st Edition, regular, and Legends-size Arcee from Prime, Generations Arcee, Chromia, Windblade, and currently 4 Slash figures from PoTP as a Raptor pack. I did miss out on the Animated female characters, Target Master Windblade, and Airachnid. I am considering springing for the Japanese Legends version of Blackarachnia in the upcoming months. Given it's already a couple years old, the average mark-ups I've seen for her seem fair, more fair than their version of Slipstream.

    IMO this is the best looking version of this mold and the only one to get if someone's not caring about having G1 Arcee.

    How could I mention female Transformers and forget about PotP Slash, who I got multiples of to give her own pack so she could be the alpha?! :eek: :D

    When I was kid I had Cybertron Override and Movie Arcee. Now I have ROTF Arcee, Chromia, and Elita-1. T30 Windblade, TR Windblade, T30 Chromia, PRID Arcee, PRID Arachnid(ded), BH Arcee, all six members of Victorion, Universe Sureshock, T30 Arcee, POTP, Slash, and TR Arcee.

    Hopefully Megatronia, TR Naughtica, POTP Moonracer, POTP Novastar, and POTP Elita-1 can join those ranks very soon. I’d eventually like to Botcon Flamewar too. She’s essential for any fembot collection.

    When I was a kid, I had Beast Wars Airazor, her Transmetal deluxe figure, and Blackarachnia. Since that point I've gotten several more fembots for the collection.

    POTP Slash and TFP Arcee are my favourite recent fembot figures.
