    I read recently about a supposed female seeker in the G1 cartoon. Fans refer to her as the "Lady in Purple." I guess because she is purple. Can anyone tell me which episode she is in and which part of it? Thanks in advance!

    The character has been mentioned in forums @ the Allspark and TFans.com but I don't belong to either website and I don't care to join just to ask one simple question.

    As that page is down like Redline said, could someone:
    a) let me know which episode to watch, and
    b) tell me not to bother if it's not actually a female seeker.

    I'm interested, as I've not heard of this before, and having watched the entire series recently, I never noticed anything like that!

    It says-

    Raksha's Nickname: Lady in Purple
    Answering Megatron's call to combat the attacking Autobots at the space cruiser launch, this oddly-colored 'con jumped off a loading platform to do so.
    LiP is a pet name, her lines are unusually soft in the one shot in which she appears. But actual sex in inconclusive, as is true, really, for non-speaking generics
    I mean, it's not like you have to soften the lines of a Decepticon jet to make it female. Their chestplates are already vaguely... nevermind. And Starscream was dubbed as female in France, so it's not without precedent.

    I luckily have not closed the page yet. Cannot believe it has exceeded its limit already.

    I know this is going to be a really dumb question because I have heard the name in connection with Botcon in the 1990s but... Who is Raksha?

    I can't view the site because of my work filters, but the site:

    http://www.encyclopediadramatica.com/index.php/Raksha

    looks interesting from the google preview text:

    "Raksha (her actual legal name. her birth name has been lost to the sands of time.) is a notorious Transformers fan, known mostly for her creepy near-sexual ..."

    This just makes me more interested, but I'm sure it's all banal, I'm just intrigued because I can't view any of the bloody webpages!

    It's not a real character. Someone made a guide of ALL the differently colored Seekers (most of which were animation errors) and attempted to name them all as if they were real characters and not just generic background troops.

    So I will help you out.

    "known mostly for her creepy near-sexual fetishization of the Decepticons and her fervent insistance that the Decepticons are in fact the true heroes of the Transformers story. When not fawning over how awesome and handsome Megatron is, she writes fanfic where her Mary Sue character has sex with alternately Megatron, Soundwave and Cyclonus.

    However, she did organize an entire Transformer convention by herself, so that's got to count for something. One... maybe... two points? I dunno."

    I remember posting on alt.toys.transformers like 3 times, reading all her stuff, and deciding to GTFO. She scared me.

    Thankyou!

    She sounds a bit daft, but not as scary as some types mentioned in hushed tones in the Fuzzy.

    So I guess all this female seeker business is just an obscure fan character inspired by an animation error. Explains why I'd never heard of it!

    I like the idea personally. Those of us who crave more female Transformers have to get our fix somewhere. I don't like all this negative talk about other Trans-fans though. I think we are all "unique" to be on a Toy website message board in the first place.

    I certainly agree with us all being a little 'special' for being here in the first place...
    But some are definitely a little more 'special' than others!

    I would also like to make the disclaimer that anything I say is more often than not in jest, and under no circumstances should I be taken seriously.

    Back on topic, more fembots would have been cool. And it's a shame there isn't any in the upcoming movie.
