Would you like to see a fembot be a main character for a future TF show?

    Traditionally the Transformers shows have been using male Autobot characters as main characters in many TF shows to attract boys to watch it. However in Transformers Prime the fembot character Arcee is arguably considered to be the main Autobot in the show despite being targatd for boys. Seeing how both male and female fans love the character I wonder if some future TF show can do the same thing? You could say that it wouldn't work because it's a boy's thing but the show My Life as a Teenage Robot has a fembot as the main character and it's not really targeted torwards boys or girls but rather both. So if it follows that route do you think it could work?

    What are your thoughts?

    I don't really care either way, as long as the character has personality (which is why I love RB, they got a lot of personality!)

    As long as the toys are good, and the aesthetic isn't pure ass (See TFA and TFP), then it doesn't matter. I am personally anti-gender when it comes to TFs, but I'm also open to change on the subject. Potentially...

    In addition to being a main character, I personally wouldn't object to a female Autobot being the team commander.

    Or they could just kill off Optimus (for real this time) & have Arcee rise to their acting leader.

    No. We already have enough slash fic from too many sick fucks around here as it is.

    Because having a female main character always results in slash fics, of course. :crazy:

    What on earth are you talking about? Most TF slash is just Starscream boning Megatron.

    Sure I guess


    I'd love to see someone like Override getting a chance to lead the Autobots instead of Optimus Prime.

    Uhh, no. As a main character it just wouldn't work. TFP Arcee is the best fembot ever and yet she's absolutely horrible, so that really ain't saying much...


    What I'm trying to say is that fembots have NEVER been done right in a TF show/movie.

    Transformers has always been an ensamble show. No lead really, just a team of varying sizes.

    Honestly what I'd like on this front is TWO or more females on the regular team at the same time. So that their default status wasn't "the token girl" and they could be more themselves. There's room for Glyph and Prime-style Arcee on a team. Or a Chromia and an Elita and so on.

    Given that Airrazor left before BA joined we've never really had two female TFs together in any regular show cast except at the very end of BM and they didn't really interact there. Two female TFs, with developed personalities, having a normal conversation, that's interaction I'd like to see.


    -ZacWilliam, wishes we'd gotten Newt like the writters wanted in BM rather than Nightscream.

    Right because we've never had Blackarachnia, or Arcee.

    This concept will break new ground!

    Maybe the TFs could also turn into animals...

    I would love to see Elita-One as the commander with personality similar to The Boss in MGS3. Love that character.

    Now that I would love to see. XD

    I also would love to see more Strika.
