    So I was in toys r us a few days back, when I saw a man buying RiD toys for his son. The son was already clutching onto his cyberverse Arcee when the man said he could have one more and asked if the boy wanted Starscream so that Arcee had someone to fight.

    To which the boy shook his head and said, "I like good girls, not bad girls."

    This is seriously the best thing I've ever heard.

    As an aside, it's good to see female transformers such as Arcee and Airach-I mean Starscream selling well with boys. Hopefully the numbers convince Hasbro to make more female transformers in both toys and fiction.

    That's great to hear! I think fembots are going to have better future in terms of toys and fiction like you've mentioned by fembots like Arcee and Airacnhid from Prime!

    That kid has good taste in choosing Arcee too. :thumb

    Does this make the battle between the two in Partners a cat fight in the youngster's eyes?

    I think it's a great idea that Hasbro is marketing strong female role models to kids, and that boys are picking up on it. Hasbro seems like making a good track record with this type of thing. I remember Scarlet and the Baroness from GI Joe, now we have Acree and Starscr... Airacnhid.

    For a second there I thought that Transformes Toy Discussion was compromised.

    I can buy it. Cyberverse Starscream's limbs are really feminine in shape (especially the legs, with the high heels and all). Slap a different head on him and it would totally work as a Fembot (Femcon?).

    Prime Starscream: slender femme fatale with that sexy seven-packs-a-day voice. She's practically Dr. Girlfriend! :D
