    You know we have some pretty colorful femmes in the franchise over the years so I was wondering who are some of the best and worst femmes in your book?

    Here are my list.

    Best

    Prime Arcee: There are a lot of reasons why she's on the list. Not only is she the first version of Arcee who's more of a character this time around but arguably is the main Autobot next to Optimus on the show. That and her color and design is freash and not based off her G1 self.

    Blackarachnia (Beast Wars and Animated): Let's face it she proved to be the first femme to be an intresting character in the franchise. From her charming personalty to her design in both shows and role she earned it.

    Airazor: For a brief time she showed to be quite fun. :)  It's a shame that she wasn't used that much on the show because of her limit time on it. I'd love to see her acting like a sister to Cheetor.

    Botanica: I have to admit she's a pretty uniqe character in BM. I mean she has a plant for an alt mode which is strange yet creative at the same time. And I like how she's the most mystical of the group too.

    Strika: (BM and Animated): Certainly a unqie type fo femme who pretty much looks almost nothing like a femme. Still her time on both shows is pretty cool to watch and if Animated had S4 going on we'd see more of her.

    Slipstream: Certainly a fan favourite. A female seeker that's based off Starscream is certainly a new idea. Like Strika if Animated had S4 we'd seen more of her.

    Airachnid: Now I know this is gonna be an unpopular opinion but for a spider femme that isn't Blackarachnia she does a pretty good job of being a creepy character in her own right. I mean Predatory really gave me the creeps when she first appeared..

    Worst

    IDW Arcee: I've read her spotlight issues and I have to say she's perhaps one of the most unlikeable characters I've came across in a long time. I man I get that IDW is trying something new for her but the way it was handled in my opinion is awful. Doesn't help that the guy who wrote her hates her guts too.

    Best: The Gobots female characters

    Worst: Transformers female characters

    Seriously, why would a robot with no exposure to humanity need boobs and lipstick?

    Different planet, the same can be ask on that too. But kiddies don't think of that type of stuff.

    Okay, I'll play.

    Best

    Strika. She's smart, independant, doesn't have robot boobs for no reason, strong, and isn't defined by her relationships which she actually has.

    Lady Mega. She may not technically count as a Transformer, but she's darn close and a fun character. She has hobbies, she shows concern for Cancer, etc.

    Slipstream. She's Slipstream. Duh. :lol 

    Override. While I prefer the Nitro Convoy name, I prefer Cybertrons female take on the character. I'm going to stop typing about this now.

    Blackarachnia (BW). She managed to fill the femme fatale stereotype rather well.

    Scylla. I didn't care much for BWII, but she made me laugh.

    Sari. Sari isn't without faults, but she's a good character.



    Worst

    Arcee (Prime). My partners are DEEEEEAAAAADD! is not a character. Then again, she's got relative depth in a series that most characters are as deep as a cardboard cutout. At best she's a poor mans Chromia with a different name.

    Minerva. Again, perhaps not technically a Transformer, Minerva was useless and annoyingly useless.

    Miko. I know, not a TF, not even arguably a TF. However I came within a hairs breadth of dropping Prime after 'TMI' because of Miko. Plus the thread is asking for females from the franchise.

    Neutral:

    Elita 1. I love the character idea, it's just that it was never expanded upon. (Botcon crappy comics don't count.) A new fresh take on Elita-1 is badly needed. Smart, skilled, and a leader.

    Arcee (IDW). There were several ideas that I liked about IDW's Arcee, but the execution was just terrible.

    Arcee (Animated). Via the information supplied, Animated Arcee is a great character. Skilled two bladed swordswoman, former teacher, intelligence agent, and willing to sacrifice herself to save the mission. Unfortunately, the series never really did much with her in that context and instead had her a bedridden comatose amnesiac for virtually the entire series.

    The overly male stuff didn't develop until Search for Alpha Trion. Oddly enough, boobs and lipstick started in that same episode. Until that point, the faces were humanoid and the bots bipedal, but there was no real gender attached unless you count voice and the pronoun of choice.

    Now Gobots, on the other hand, had a very good reason for gender classification, as they were cyborgs basically. Yet with the exception of Crasher's lipstick, there was no real difference between the male and female mecha. In my mind, that's the way it should be.

    My favorite ones are BW Blackarachnia(absolutely the best) and her TFA version.

    Then there's G1 Elita-1,despite her few appearances,she's an interesting character and I prefer her to Arcee.
