    Lol yeah, actually I think made a similar joke on one of these threads where they make the current design exclusive to Asia and the modified design for the rest of the world. :p :D

    I would love if they made some additional bits to make it a bit more transformery. Mainly bigger wings and possibly some chest armour. And if they're removable then everyone wins! The only worst case scenario to me is for no windblade furai model at all. But like you guys say, that'd be a waste of the hype. I think after all this it'll definitely happen and its gonna be the design we've already seen.

    Windblade. But upgraded to Kuro Kara Kuri status to shut people up about walking down the model kit aisle to unexpected see one sexy robot amongst normal looking robots. Win-win.

    I'd love for a Kuro Kara Kuri Windblade. She'd look exceptional at that level of quality.

    As long as she isn't $400 and closer to $100, then I'd be in.

    I do actually want a K3 windblade in a different style though. The Sara Stone or even Alex Milne Windblade is very beautiful and I’d love to see that. I don’t really care enough about this design to see it forever, but it’d just be cool if she got a different design as much as the Flame Toys Optimus’ have different designs.

    Maybe not as low as $100, but I could see ~$200 for a K3 Windblade. Drift was smaller and cheaper than the K3 Leader-type figures, at ~$300, and Windblade is a far slighter build than him.

    The complaining about complaining is cyclical and got old fast a while back. There are fans who do actually like Flame Toys’ Transformers products without bringing up all the drama that has gone down. Let’s leave the drama out.

    Legitimately happy with the changes they made. I'm so happy they listened.

    A tweet from the artist (Bansav), translated from Japanese, states that Hasbro was concerned with some of the parts and coloring and this is the result of the design tweaking. I dig her a ton still. Still a get for me.

    EDIT found an original take for comparison. More robot-y parts on her now.

    Glad they didn't change too much, but I still prefer her old design though. Especially her wings, I thought it looked kinda unique. Regardless though, I still can't wait to get her.

    I prefer the wings on her original design but I really don't care all that much as long as it releases at some point

    Really want the first and second versions.
    But it's a good news.
    Still, some activists won't be satisfied untill they destory this figure.

    I definitely prefer the new version, the old one's lack of wings kinda bugged me. I might actually get this, she's pretty cute.
