    You could replace "Windblade" with "Rey" and not have to change too much of your post.

    I call 'em like I see 'em. There's a definite pattern in human behavior. At any rate, while I don't think the line art as presented is the "best", I don't particularly see many of the derogatory things people are saying about it. It's line art done by a guy that knows things are going to get colored. As a result, the lines need to be clear and bold, so the colorist knows where certain facial features are. In nature, things like skin tone, complexion, lighting, etc. contribute to how we see a face.

    Stomping around and saying that the line art makes the characters appear like men in drag is like complaining that a house is gonna be drafty when they haven't installed the insulation yet. At the end of the day, the guy probably used the toys, comics, and the concept of "warrior women" to get his art done. You're going to get strong features and bold colors.

    The funny part is that when TT did their ladies, a lot of people complained about their box art, too:

    Can't win for trying, eh? :D

    In color, I like the art a lot. It feels like a modern style applied to the G1 box art aesthetic. Windblade's big chin and severe expression make her a little off, but everything else is great. Arcee is fantastic.

    Meanwhile, that Takara art is 普通. Ho-hum nothing special.
