    Hopefully their US store or BBTS will get this for those that cannot attend the Con and do not live in Japan; think it is BS that they cannot ship it international.

    It kind of depends on what you mean by cute, and I made an educated guess about which. Sorry if I misunderstood.

    Perhaps that was the wrong word. My point still stands, however.

    I mean, I guess? If you're uncomfortable with a statue of a Transformer turned into an anime girl showing a bit of skin, that's fine, but there's also nothing wrong with people saying they think it's cute. It's a harmless statue, a weird "let's do this for the hell of it," a shameless cross-promo to try to get the weebs into transformers or the transformers fans into weebshit.

    If this is some how Bonk Worthy…do you just bonk everyone who ever liked Black Aracnia? She wears a leopard print bra with like d cup tits…even Cliff being human and wearing what she is, is less sex appeal than some of the robots we’ve had.

    I guess what's triggering people is not so much the fact that the statue itself is sexual. It's the fact that many deprived nerds will 100% look at this and exclaim shamelessly how badly they want to play the crotch trumpet to this statue. Further reminding Transformers fans that even their community isn't safe from what made fandoms like Sonic and MLP so infamous. It's not a hard concept to think about

    nobody wants to know they share an interest with people like that. But we do, such is life

    Before you call a design like this sexualized, consider looking at how real women dress. Showing skin is not inherently sexual, that’s really old-world thinking. Her shorts are baggy and cover her backside, there’s no exposed cleavage. She’s fine and this shouldn’t bother anyone.

    As has been said before, some of the robots in this series (with both American and Japanese origins) are significantly more sexualized than this harmless and cute statuette.

    Edit: If your concern is that some people are creepy about anime girls or whatever, get over it. If they buy for their own nefarious purposes then that’s their business.

    I agree 100 percent with everything you said, the figure is dressed pretty modest compared to how I see people dressing in my own city in public! <_< I have a close female friend that outside of work will always have to dress in short shorts with a crop top and at times its obvious she doesn't have a bra underneath her top. I know shes not even sorda doing it for attention or thrills, thats just how she dresses, but anyone seeing her in public would probably think she was some exotic porn star or something. I remember when she took me out to dinner for my bday a few months ago and dressed similar to what I was talking about we both got a lot of looks. I'm sure some people were probably thinking "what website did this guy find her from?" But again, if you actually knew her and some of her personal life, shes not even sorda like that or in that scene.

    All types of folks out there! You also see plenty of guys jogging shirtless in little athletic shorts, it’s just part of life. Not everything is inherently sexual no matter how much some people want to claim it is!

    I was going to say Cliff still doesn\'t get any respect, but it\'s not just the straight recolor of the Bumblebee one that I thought it was...

    but yeah, the least they could have done is do a different hoodie to really make it a Cliffjumper-looking outfit
