    fembots.... yeah I try not to give them much thought. While I have no issues with the concept of transformers who have female traits rather then male.... I often find that some fans reactions to be a little less then healthy and so I try to stay away from some threads.

    edit: Now when it comes to Fembot design I think all too often people fall into the trap of keeping too close to human anatomical correctness (well for comics...) when their male counter parts come in all shapes and sizes. And another big issue (for me) is that %75 just seem to be half naked chick with panel lines and alt mode kibble and I kinda thing that its played out now.

    I'm confused, are you trying to troll-bait, or are you trying to find a cheaper alternative to therapy?

    Misguided in either case...

    Ahsoka makes a good fembot, not too "I'm a Girl that grew ten tons of armor plating!" but not "I am female because I say so."

    I was just looking at her in the store the other day and thinking how that mold REALLY works as a girl.

    It's supposedly one of the better SW molds, but the proportions never *quite* worked for me on the dudes, for her it looked right!

    This is coming from a female fan. I haven't seen a fembot yet that really has caught my great interest to be honest, which is a shame because i really would like to see more variety and types of them, but we always just keep getting 'Arcee' being recycled all the time as the main fembot. One of the little things i appreciated in TFA was the fact that we saw other female TFs aside from Arcee (Elita-One/BA, Red Alert, female screamer clone, Strika).Generally tho', female TFs are scarce in representation.

    I'll mention that i rather liked the idea of the Botcon sister duo: Roulette and Shadow Striker. Kinda like the female quivalents to Sunstreaker and Sideswipe, except one was a Decepticon.

    i dislike all the fembots. transformers shouldn't have gender. And to me, there all weak and unlikable characters. And i absolutely loathe transformer romance. Its one of the main reasons I dont like the cartoons. but thankfully, its not in the comics (there werent any female transformers in the comics i think)

    As much as I wanna say Arcee just for being a bright pink robot and, as such, being inherently goofy, I gotta go with Blackarachnia here.

    She's just got more going on in either BW or Animated than...wow, pretty much all the other fembots.

    Strika also gets some points just for being completely not what people usually expect outta a fembot.

    For fans that dislike the idea of fembots like you, i think it's probably easiest if you just tell yourself that some TFs simply have more feminine traits than others.

    But really, i don't undertand why some fans have such a hard time with the idea of fembots. It's not something you necessarily need to explain, you just accept that there are males and females, like us. It gives more variety and spice to the TFs as well imho.

    i dont like humanizing transformers. there supposed to be metallic aliens, not humans. I think that gender in transformers is a dumb way to humanize them.

    As a character, I like Blackarachnia most (Beast Wars especially, but Animated is pretty good too), As she is mainly out for herself, and doesn't (at least not cleanly) fit the standard fembot mold of "someone's girlfriend" or "just one of the guys who happens to be a girl".

    I also find Thunderblast fun to watch too (heh), mainly because she's SO not a positive female role model, essentially being a Megatron groupie.
