From a marketing standpoint I am curious why they chose to make Sari a girl instead of a boy. I know when I was growing up watching Transformers I was always envious of Spike because he was a boy just like me (well I didn't wear construction hats but you get the idea) who got to be drawn into the world of Transformers. I don't think I would have identified as well if it were a girl character mostly due to my age bracket, etc. Since Transformers tends to be a more boy oriented toyline and this one is admittedly towards a younger audience I wonder what the thought was behind making the human character female. I don't want this to be a bash thread or anything but any objective ideas on why you think they chose the character the way they did?
