    Some of my favorites. Elita-1 is especially awesome. She really owns the mold better than Arcee if you ask me.

    Also best friends? I dunno! Never read IDW so I don't really know their history aside from surface understanding of Nautica and Windblade!

    Great pics! And sadly IDW never really explored what Windblade and Nautica's relationship was. To my knowledge their only shared pagetime was their first appearance (along with Chromia) though I think they were somewhat friends as Nautica does mention Windblade a few times or things Windblade would say, and Chromia went with her when she signed up for the Lost Light crew as moral support so we know that THEY were friends. There's also a cute cover of Windblade with Nautica and Velocity in Swerve's Bar on the Lost Light but alas that's only a cover ^^

    I really want a Legends Slipstream, but she is way too expensive on the secondary market. Hoping she gets a WFC upgrade.

    she pops up at cons and even in the bst forum for 60-80. She is very fun once you get the hang of her.

    Know the feeling. Best option I came across was actually an offer for Nightbird, Slipstream and Blackwidow for $249.00. Starting price I normally see on most ebay sales is around $150.00 used.

    I am incredibly impressed by Cyclion (or is it Lavender? The name is Cyclion: Type Lavender which suggests Lavender is the specifier, hmm ) ability to hold poses like this with only a single stand on one foot. I suspect the die cast in her legs helps.

    Headcanon fembots are allowed right? Because I've decided my Cyberverse Deluxe Bumblebee is female. A female version of Bumblebee. Not to be confused with my OC Honeybee who is a fembot forged around the same time as Bee - in my fic that features her, her pre-name designation was B-128 with Bumblebee being B-127 of course. I'm getting a bit off topic here but short version is I'm going with the headcanon that Cybertronians (usually) choose their own name but when they are first Forged from Protoform they are given an identifier based on various factors to do with where and when they were Forged (and/or built, depending on their origin)
    Ahem, anyway back to FemBee, I might try some tweaks to her at some point but for now, posing :D

    And last but not least, a pic of the Gemini Twins from Big Firebird's Magic Henshin series:

    I had fun with posing to make give them some individuality, such as making Pink look the more confident of the two :)

    She has three pairs of swappable hands, the other two being closed fist and holding something. My earlier photos had the closed fists on.

    Well I hoped that there would have been a pair of relaxed hands
