    Yeah not bad at all. Although I have a feeling they're use the Prime Slipstream mode for her...

    WinDblade.

    This is what happens when you design a character by committee. No sense to it.

    I really love the geisha (or Kabuki, pick your poison. They aren't the same thing but they share similar makeup schemes) face, I don't care how silly it is. If I get her, she's standing with Drift on my shelves.

    I believe it's going to be a brand new mold, not a remold or repaint of any kind.

    well in the event they don't make a figure for her, i'm sure the new armada starscream deluxe will do nicely.

    if only she was a winged beast that would have been awesome, but I'll definitely pick her up anyway because she's still amazing looking

    Windblade. Not Wingblade.

    And it's kabuki-styled. Geisha go for more of an "alabaster doll/white-skinned" look. Kabuki gets all crazy with the red stripe makeup.

    Yep! And drinking in all the rage like this has made me very happy that she is.

    Neato. Looking forward to getting a toy. Didn't they say this character will be written into the comics too? I think that was half the reason I voted female - to "force" more females into IDW.

    Love the Japanese style - she can be Drift's waifu.

    This is what I thought about the first time I saw it. If you don't know what that is, watch the G1 Episode "The Face of Nijika".

    ...Okay, that art is terrible.

    But I like the design. I'll wait for pics of the actual toy before deciding.
