    MODERATOR NOTE: Keep things PG-13. The TFW staff realizes the nature of this figure and are keeping the thread open as it is a third party figure that isn't completely nude despite rumors of removable pieces. If you have questions about what to post or deleted posts, feel free to contact Onslaught24 or another staff member via PM. Keep in mind we're on just as much a tightrope as anyone else.

    ADMIN NOTE: Calling it, not for here. Please discuss this off site if it's your thing.


    ADMIN NOTE 2:

    Hey everyone,

    After some discussion with the team and feedback from you guys, opening this thread back up.

    There is a big asterisk there tho -

    NO PICS OR VID

    None in the first post, and none of the figure throughout the thread. As the project develops, and as it releases.

    This is the compromise. While this project isn't as bad as some recent add-on kits, it's still can be viewed as sexualizing a female robot, and the pics relating to that can get too much for what I think is appropriate here.

    SO, feel free to discuss the project, you can share updates, link out to their reveals, but post nothing photo or video related to this toy within the thread itself. I'm sure folks won't read this before posting down the road. First post with pic will be cleaned up and user alerted. After that, warnings etc. If you feel like it, report the pic posts so we can tackle it.

    If you guys can handle that, the thread will stay open. Hopefully those with concerns will understand. I know some will still hate it and think I'm being stupid. But that's where we are at.

    PM me further if needed. Of note, I am busy and bouncing between non-fanboy work, the other websites, and travel, so I don't usually see and respond to things immediately.


    Big Fire Bird’s ASG0080C concept 3D render for now it seems.

    Horrible. I'm gonna believe in humanity and hope there's not a market for this.

    I feel like the designer might be a touch lonely.

    A good transforming toy is one that doesn't look like it could transform.

    This is one of them.

    Seriously, this figure maybe going into territory that may lead to a whole different type of fanbase on the boards.


    I mean you don't see Takara....


    .......Nevermind....

    It's not that hard when you have a giant buttpiece shield and long pieces of armor flaps hanging off her. Which incidentally are exactly the things Toyworld's Leia should've included, lol.

    That said, this should be repainted as Fire/NovaStar. That design is screaming for a glossy red paint.

    Looks cool. Now to avoid this thread forever since it's sure to spawn some of the worst posts imaginable.

    The designer just needs to have Arcee forcing herself onto another female transformer for a kiss like she did in IDW and they'll be immune to the coming tumblr storm.

    Too late.

    I’ve never been too keen on Arcee’s design anywhere outside of Prime, but the sword and shield combo has a nice look about it.

    Maybe if they didn’t call it Arcee, and gave it a more... ‘Valkyrie’ colour scheme, I’d possibly be interested.

    Right now, it’s just a borderline R34 bot...

    Provocative nature aside, I love seeing original designs for established characters. I’d take this over 5 different MPs of the same character any day.

    That's a nice design. I like the neo G1 look. What stuff has this company put out in the past?

    Couldn't care less about the controversy and incoming butthurt.

    curves aside if the scale is right it should go well with my Elcid, i just hop it has more waist movement than the rest.
