    Yeah. if anything the head looks a bit better, I think its just more paint apps. Wings was also my main thing.

    I'm really hoping she's smaller than the average Furai. like the same height as Bee without the action master parts. so that it scales(ish) with the other anime style bots

    I'm happy that she doesn't look too different from how she looked before. Wished she kept her old wings though. Hopefully the kit will ultimately give you the option to give her the old wings along with some of her original design details when it's released.

    I was wondering if, in general, HasTak wanted the wings changed because that's something they consider key to her design. For all the variations characters go through, it seems like there are things Hasbro/Takara lock in on. That could be for trademark/copyright purposes. It's harder to protect a design if it's too broadly defined. Think Prime's chest windows, Megatron's fusion cannon, etc.

    Perhaps her wings are like those on the three main coneheads. HasTak associate those with specific jet modes because they want to make sure that they can present a design and have people recognize it without being told who it is. If they want her to be a more prominent member of the roster, this could be a step in that direction. Also, if they ever do variations on Windblade (like if they decide to do an Autobot Seeker equivalent) then they'd want to be able to do design variations to help tell them apart.

    Meanwhile Windblade's shoulderplates change with every toy. While I would like more design consistency, I like all those different shoulder designs.

    That's one theory and seeing as how like you said Hasbro's really pushing for the Evergreen designs to be basically their definitive designs that may not be far off. All the same I do wish that they'll be able to give you the option to make her look different if you want similar to how Flametoy's Drift from what I've heard has the option to change his look if you want.

    I admit mine is just a theory, but those are likely less important as the wings are part of both her bot and her alt.

    Changing her shoulders, while annoying for those who like a certain style, would probably be less of a concern when trying to define a look.

    Like Prime's chest windows, yet he still has so many variations on literally everything else.

    Well...at least she still has her curves. Now she's more "aerodynamic" ;) 

    imho feel like they cowered out a bit after being so close to completion but at least if the artist is happy with the compromise I won't be upset either. I don't see anyone younger than 16 buying these things tho.

    That's a matter of the design aesthetic, which obviously Windblade doesn't share.
