    We just need the next statue to have a well sculpt ding-dong bulge to counter Windblade's well sculpted gluteus maximus.

    Perfectly balanced.

    Got my preorder in. Hope they make an Arcee companion piece one day. Chromia would be nice too.

    Well said! Interestingly someone posted some scans from one of the old Transformer Annuals the other day (I forget the thread, sorry) and those old Marvel Comics designs actually have a lot of metal muscle shapes and very human designs going on too so it's hardly a new thing :)

    Ah so it IS Cutthroat, just with a weird color scheme.

    Sarah Stone's style wasn't for everyone but I rather liked her work.

    In that case, welcome to the forum :) 

    As for your question, you can add them as attachments using the Upload a file button, and then there'll be an option to insert the images into the post either full sized or thumbnail. You can also link images from other websites using the Image button on the toolbar above the text box for writing a post.
    Hope that helps :thumb

    1.2k without shipping and customs whoa, maybe she'll cost 2k with everything, sadly I'll pass, a 700$ statue could have been better but 1.2 is another level, still, looks sick

    yeah, the main issue with statues like her is the shipping cost and customs, not even the figure itself, import prices are just too high for pieces like her (easily 800/1k$ at least in my country)but now, I really, really think that a Bishoujo Transformers line could be something IMPRESSIVE, just imagine Elita1 in Bishoujo style, affordable price and a great collectible size, just like the Gi-Joe-My little pony Bishoujos

    The only experience I had with this character was from the Prime Wars Trilogy so I'm glad I found this thread since I was wondering what the story was behind that base.

    Overall, I think this Windblade looks phenomenal. The pose, colors, creative base and the details especially impressed me.

    Just a few gripes about the execution Windblade's Body. An anatomically correct female is one thing, but curves on a robot? She thic! But to be fair to Azure Studio, she had those curves in the series. Also looks more like a mix of Gundam and Virtual On than a Transformer. If she didn't have those wings, nobody would guess her for a transformer. I just wish she had other parts on the body showing us that she transforms into a Jet. However, I can see what Azure Studio is going for. A completely modern version of a cybernetic being that was built today (Not referring to Bayverse)

    Really tempted here. I'll probably pull the trigger.

    In this case, they're specifically referring to Kotobukiya's "Bishoujo" line of figurines, which put a Japanese anime-girl spin on Western comic and movie properties.

    But the word itself is just Japanese for "beautiful girl".
