    Lol you guys are great.
    That would be a neat feature. And cool for such a small, weird and varied company like this.
    God damn that’d be amazing.

    When men were men, women were women, and we still had Saturday morning cartoons.

    Where the men were men.

    The men were also sometimes women but in a manly way.

    The women were women but had clothes with shoulderpads to make them look kinda like men (that looked like women).

    And our cartoons were utterly brainless, fucked up bullshit nonsense like cartoons are SUPPOSED TO BE.

    I went bald JUST from looking at that picture. Handshakes like that are why we need Firebird Arcee.

    (See how I brought us right back there? In a manly way? Yeah!)

    So I’m not understanding the “controversy” of this figure?

    Isn’t it now known there is no “naked” or cast off parts? None which are shown also on any picture?

    Also, how is this figure worse than the thong and tube top wearing female dinobot figures that Fansproject has made and is not censored at all?

    People are silly sometimes, which means that robots with curves approximating the female form make them feel things they've only read about in Cosmo.
    And this nettles them.

    No naked parts, no nips, no vajajay. Some posts have made it clear they've managed to confuse this with the "add-on kit" for FansToys Rouge.
    Begs the question of how much of the controversy that got whipped up was actually directed at THIS figure.

    It's not, but the figure and/or it's concept art wasn't the problem, it was people's reaction to it.

    @Legate -

    Yeah this is crazy. I’m a pretty far left leaning “cry baby” and I see no issues with this figure at all. So weird.

    I wonder if the mods just don’t care? @Sentinel - can you chime in at all? If this Has been proven to be as tame, if not tamer than those FP Dinobots, can tasteful pictures be posted?

    Eh, they're verboten based on the first page. I'd like the pictures here too, just because Weibo is a pain in the tuchis but they tend to attract comments from the sort of terrible people that pee in the pool and chew with their mouth open or something.

    Also, like @Legate said, it's not about the figure necessarily being offensive to "left leaning crybabies". It's about some people being so gross about the figure that it was offensive to nearly everyone, left leaning crybabies, right leaning nutjobs, and whatever's in between.

    All that's left is @Snaku, @Digger, @Legate, @CigarJackal and @me making dumb 80's references and superhero jokes, largely because I don't think it's possible to offend us.

    Tony Bacala decreed that no pictures will be allowed. It’s unfortunate that a few people take it to a weird place and ruin it for everyone, but I think everyone understands how that happens.

    ...likewise, pulse-dial, VT-52 emulation into a VMS shell account at JSC back when new G1 toys were still showing up on store shelves: nothing beat the slow scroll of green phosphors running RN on a late summer night!..

    Ayyyye! That was a cool conversation turned comeback.
    I feel what the worst part about this is the camel toe or slit people were on about. It’s a lot more graphic and descriptive than the fansproject dinogirls. That’s my understanding of why. Otherwise the figure is fairly standard.

    I mean that was certainly part of it. The rest was how the designer was deliberately using salacious poses and camera angles.

    Very true. Although it did sell it for me. Mainly that upwards shot from the legs. That was really cool.

    I might be confused now too. The 'add on kit' for Fanstoys was for a torso add-on, but are you saying there's a vajayjay one too?!? No pics (I don't want this locked) but if you could clarify? I'm asking for a friend, of course.

    I really like the new concept art with the crossbow though on this one. I'm an Arcee completist, so I literally have to buy her, and I've always loved the crossbow homage to Energon and Beast Wars (she trained the Beast Wars Deployers 'Rav' in crossbow usage... Rav was the cool Red bird, for those who don't get the obscure reference, bio read 'whose power was given to him by an ancient female Autobot resistance leader for courage in battle.').
