    Who are your favorite Transformers of the female persuasion?

    Most of them aren't fairly represented in the fiction, but is there anyone in particular that you think stands out as underused even for a female Transformer?

    I only just recently learned of Minerva/Minelba, which made me curious about the subject.

    My favorite is definitely Airazor, who is also my favorite Beast Wars character and one of my top 5 Transformers.

    Manta Ray desperately needs some more story presence.

    Airazor & Blackarachnia (both Beast Era and Animated. Both were excellent characters backed up by superb toys).

    I love AirRazor!
    Black Arachnia from Beast machines, I didn't like her Beast Wars much until she went TM2.
    Sari is half Cybertronian, does she count?
    And OverRide from Cybertron.
    Also Fracture from her brief appearance in the comics.

    Blackarachnia is definitely my favorite female Transformer.

    I also really like BW Sonar.

    Glyph.

    No one ever talks about Glyph, and she is an awesome character.

    If Sari counts then definitely her. Great character in the franchise. I really enjoyed watching the G1 cartoon episode "The Search for Alpha Trion." G1 fembots were fun characters.

    The question was "Who's underused?" and I keep seeing Blackarachnia mentioned?

    She was a main character in BW, an even more central character in BM, and even made it to Animated. I think she's the most utilized female character in the entire Transformers line to date (we'll see what Prime does with Arcee).

    I'd have to say I'd like to see what they can do with Slipstream in Prime.

    To be fair, that was the SECOND question, after "Who is your favorite?". Many saw the first and glossed over the second, myself included.

    In an "underused" bent, i kinda wish Animated Arcee got a chance to do something other than be the vegetative motivation for other characters. I remember watching the Japanese intro and thinking how sad it was she got to do more there than in the entire run of the series.

    Favorite is BW Blackarachnia, and her character arc second only to Dinobot.

    Firestar from G1 would have loved to have seen more done with her and the other lesser known G1 Femmes

    I'd say my favourite is Blackarachnia from Beast Wars.

    The underused ones? Well Greenlight and Lancer from "The Search for Alpha Trion". Obviously they just disappeared without warning and weren't even used again! Goddamnit Hasbro!
