    I will buy
    Arcee
    Elita One
    Chromia
    Moonracer
    Firestar
    Nightbird
    (as long as they're G1 style)
    Nancy?

    Not really interested in Paradron Medic since she's just a green Arcee.

    I will not buy any IDW designed fembots. Especially not psycho bitch IDW Arcee.

    But buy what you want, that's just how my collection will be :)

    You forget to mention she's allegedly transgender as well :p 

    For those who aren't aware, Arcee's representation in IDW has been... odd.
    Originally there were NO female Transformers, and when Arcee appeared her backstory that came out was that she had been more or less forcibly transgendered, which was a large part of her hatred for Jhiaxus. Then later it turned out there WERE other female Transformers, and to my knowledge Arcee's status in light of that has never been addressed or resolved.

    The whole thing was handled so poorly I don't know what to think any more.

    Just ignore the weird stuff and enjoy an Arcee that's badass?

    Sheesh we get it already. I mentioned before you seemed like a pretty chill person, but I don't get why you act as if IDW murdered your sister or something.

    You needn't in every topic tell us how much you hate it. We understand you enjoyed the 30 minute toy commercials for little boys in the 80s much more than you ever liked the comics.

    It was a response to the comments about an MP Windblade or an MP Nautica (which I don't understand why, those characters never existed in G1).

    And maybe the comment about Arcee was a rather unnecessary but I am just reiterating my desire for pure G1 version. Perhaps I should have mentioned that I wouldn't buy any Animated, Prime or Armada fembots either.

    I'm sorry if I irritated you.

    Because although they're not characters from the original series/comics, they've become popular due to their portrayal in the comics. It's not for nothing that in the Combiners Wars animated web series, Windblade is one of the main protagonists. Being as they ARE popular, it's only natural to want to see them represented in a variety of ways, including Masterpiece quality.

    The ability to do really GOOD headmasters is still a bit out of reach IMO. I'd be down for the visor gimmick, though it's inclusion or lack thereof would hardly be a deal-breaker for me.

    I'm not crazy about Headmaster Arcee. But if they are going to do it, I hope they include an extra, non transforming head. I'd be worried about the headmaster gimmick adding kibble or seamlines to the facial sculpt. Those who want a bog standard Arcee face could be happy, and those who wanted Headmaster Arcee would also be happy.

    Agreed. It would also give something extra to a figure that wouldn't otherwise come with much in the way of accessories.
    If possible, I'd like to see them do interchangeable hands.

    Openplays got my vote, springer, I'm not too sure about, looks a little young for my taste, but good prototyping guys, we'll also probably get a prototype at tfcon.

    I appreciate that apology : ) and it's all good.

    Yes. She will always be one of my faves. Need that MP Arcee.

    An Arcee MP is a "toe in the water" character. Easily justified as included in a line, but success opens the door to taking a chance on other, more obscure and/or less celebrated female characters.

    I would even go so far as to say that a successful MP-quality figure opens the door to non-MP female characters.

    What difference does my topic about Windblade make,IDW or no IDW I think Windblade should be made in the MP Style. As for what someone said about Azalea and those others I really don't think they would scale too well with Unique Toys Allen since in Helicopter mode he is longer than MP22 Ultra Magnus,and I think Azalea would look tiny next to him.

    Besides as I stated before I wouldn't mind an IDW Inspired Arcee from a 3P MP but I just want a G1 version before that happens,same for Windblade.That is all.

    Now you had me wondering about the possibilities of IDW-only characters being redesign with G1 aesthetics...

    But Unique Toys Allen is G1 Toon, not IDW. Many would want a G1 MP Style Arcee to go with UT Allen. Azalea is IDW. Goes better with generations Springer I think, unless a more IDWesh Springer is made.

    I would also welcome a 3rd party IDW and G1 MP Windblade, but not sure what a G1 Windblade would look like though, as I have only seen an IDW look for her, as as long as she looks hot.... Unless you consider the current art or the combiner wars one G1esh, in which case, bring it on, she looks really hot in both. Or maybe there is something I am missing from the G1 / IDW discussion.
