I got her just recently, love her <3
Basically it's an appreciation thread for Fembots only.
I had a fun arrival this morning! My first order from Robotoyshop
Lovely box art
This is adorable
Team together! I like how Megaempress' ladder can make a cool fusion cannon turret.
And with my own addition. 'Blackjacque' - name pending - I thought his, now her, colourscheme matched pretty well and the liked the idea of using her as an extra team member in lieu of a Rust Dust repaint. I'm toying with a name based on the Joker or Fool card to go with the card suite theme of the Four Guards as a kind of 'fifth suite'
And finally combined modes. On the right you can see my finangled breastplate mode for Blackjacque. Originally I had intended having her horizontal but the connection point is not centred. I need to try widening the connection port a bit more though as she keeps popping off
All in all, very pleased with my purchase! Despite only being a recolour she feels like an entirely distinct character to Victorion who I also enjoyed greatly <3 I fully intend to do a pic of the two of them together at some point. Also nice to have some more femcons. Before them my only Femcons were Legion class Flamewar from TFP, TFA Blackarachnia and possibly Nightbird, though she's technically non-aligned. If only the Generations Slipstream wasn't so expensive..
Not sure if anyone has posted this yet but...
Rescue Bots Whirl is the best Whirl.
I’d name her Wildcard if I were you. It’s a name not taken already and fits the suits theme while maintaining the fifth and Joker reference.
For her personality, you have to base her on an existing male Decepticon that shares her color scheme.
Lunaclub has a crush on Starscream. Moonheart trained under Soundwave. Flowspade worked under Shockwave. Trickdiamond has deals with Swindle. And Megaempress obviously has a connection to Megatron.
Since she shares a color scheme with Wildrider, along with the “Wild” in the name. I’d say base her personality off of him. A fellow psychotic.
I've not even seen the series and I love her. I even picked up a Magazine gift non transforming figure of her robot mode. I'm seriously considering how to make a Generations/more traditional Transformers version of her. I actually think it would be doable using the RiD Windblade as a base as they have a similar bodyshape and it wouldn't be too hard to make her a chopper - some on this forum have done so already.
Ooh I'd missed those connections, and good suggestion with the Wildcard name. I'll ponder this, thanks
Okay, I'm a fan now too.
Been having some more fun with these ladies today
So I've decided on the name Wildcard for my gal. She wants to prove herself as a Decepticon and sought out to join Megaempress' guards... which she succeeded in doing. Unfortunately the 4 Guards view her like a little sister due to her diminutive size and inexperience and don't seem to take her seriously at best, or are somewhat bullying at worst. Meanwhile Megaempress seems to have taken a shine to her but won't stop babying her and insists on carrying her around.
Be careful what you wish for I guess
Is this terribly cliche? Sure, but this whole team seems to play on anime tropes so I'm running with it
"Let me down er My Lady!"
Team together... don't mind the apple juice and Megaempress still won't let Wildcard go.
Also having fun with details from their bios, such as Lunaheart being a psycho stalker for Starscream.
"Silly Starscream, you can't escape from me my love <3 "
"Skywarp? Thundercracker? GET THIS PSYCHO OFF ME!"
"Ah ah ah, it's just us my beloved, I'm not letting you get away this time!"
Meanwhile her sister has found her own crush' kitty.
Ravage is not amused.
I've already got the Victorion set, don't make me get this set too.
Enablement beam activate!!!
We enabling? Lemme join in
You and Xaran make this set look so tempting. I love the bright colors against black scheme (so much better than Victorion's colors) and that fact that it's a Decepticon girl gang (with bonus bonkers backstory and art) just makes it better.
I wasn’t actively collecting at the time Megatronia was released and it’s one of the pieces I most regret missing
I lucked out and got the Victorion set for about $60. This may cost slightly more.
Just a car wash...
Yeah, I got Victorion for £80... I spent a bit more on these gays but then this was after knowing I liked the molds.... that's how I rationalise it anyway
A new addition to my Fembots.
I’ve been sitting on my birthday money trying to figure out what to get and I came across a great lil deal on the ‘Bay.
An v1 Gobots Crasher. The poster had it just labeled as a “Used Vintage Transformer Small Race Car Metal And Plastic. Cool Small Car” and so I was happy to see that it appeared to be complete and in decent shape.
Now while her black paint job...
is more well known, I actually like the V1 white paint job. Now she is one of the original Fembots and I’m glad to have her in my collection.
My first third-party figure, Fans Hobby Athena!
For my headcanon, I'm calling the smaller figure Athena and the Transtector Minerva.
