    I wonder what women in japan that have worn the clothing this WB is based on feel about this outrage. Must be insulting to be considered Oversexual or Porn by people who supposedly are in support of women....

    Like, as someone upthread pointed out, this fandom gets itself in a tizzy about blue or grey fists and your solution to uncritically like this kit or shut up about it has zero appeal.

    Lol I was gonna quote the whole thing but my phone wigged out. The statement stands the this design is fundamentally different from the expectations set up for the rest of the line and that difference is marked almost exclusively by a) the hentai designer and b) the concomitant style of promo.

    Pretty sure that's a Las Vegas thing

    Riiiiiight. Let's just start with the most obvious hey, (aside from the fact that if I had an arse that looked like that nude I would need to see a doctor real fuckn quick) Fully half of the promo is it? There were four shots in total? I'm lookin at the tfsource page now...

    But that’s the fans’ fault. Flame toys has a revolving door of styles and design aesthetics. I don’t even know how you can have expectations with this line.

    well yeah, you wouldn't have smooth crotch or butt flaps on a figure that has a jagged angular style. WB has a smooth aesthetic thus, smooth. If starscream was made to look smooth, he would have a regular looking butt, just in flap form.

    I feel that all opinions are grounded in something akin to reality for those who hold them and they are more than welcome to it. I think many of us do not have a problem with that.

    I think what we do have a problem with, though, is people leveraging their voice and priviledge to bully a company into not releasing something that others want. Essentially, it is a big middle finger and a power-play against people who like something they don't. You can dress it up however you want, but when the options are: A. Let it be and move on or B. Band together with like minded people to rob other people of something you don't personally like, I think that sends a pretty clear message.

    What would the sentiment have been if people banded together to force the "homosexual" connotations out of the official comics? I don't see how this is different than that situation.

    So of the kits so far we have faithful idw reproductions of OP, megs, drift, and tarn, then a seperate pointy anime style for another OP, starscream, and Devy, you might choose to put the upcoming beast convoys in this area or in their own then there is a dedicated G1 OP.

    And then there's windblade that doesn't really fit any of those aesthetic profiles.

    Which is to say, there are two major strands in the flame toys kits: idw and angular anime and windblade is neither.

    You uhhh, didn't hit up the comics sub much hey.

    Really, they’ve only done slavishly-accurate IDW designs and blocky, angular anime takes. The G1 Prime is a one off so far. I’m fairly certain the Primal is the IDW design from when the Maximals went savage. The Windblade design doesn’t fit into any of it. Given that they had a hentai artist design it, I think the intentions behind the design were pretty clear. It’s a shame, because we really haven’t had a really IDW accurate figure come out yet. Given that’s where the character debuted, it feels like a major missed opportunity.

    So this line has four different aesthetics and you’re complaining about adding a fifth?

    I did, and there were a lot of people who didn't like it, but it was still allowed to exist for those who did.
