    You talking about me ?

    I think that might depend on if the next show is a sequel to Prime or something completely unrelated. and what sort of animation is used to make the show.

    I have been led to understand the next show is still CGI - but heck even TF Go is partly 3d model based but it's way cheaper than Prime to make per 10 minutes for sure.

    I would suggest you ask Hasbro's facebook page if they have any intention to use her in comics of TV shows at all.

    Yup, usually the only walls of text I bother reading are SMOGs, because so far in a sea of insane comments there the ones who make some sense.

    Same here.

    I am going see what happens with Windblade before saying he or she is a bad char in the comics. Who know they might surprise us the Writers. As long her origin is reasonable and logical that all I care about.

    Wasn't there a female Animorph's toy that changed into a lion (male)? Rachael I think.

    When I saw her, my first thoughts were of a Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD crossover and I want it, in his colors.

    Next television series? Unknown. But she's already confirmed to show up in the comics. My money's on some connection to the Knights of Cybertron.

    I think you can usually tell a boy cat from a girl cat. Girl cats are usually a little smaller and thinner in the face fuzz. and boy cats swagger more girl cats slink.

    The short version for the text phobic is I was defending robots having a gender identity and to some extent robot anthropomorphisation again naysayers sayin' they are machines they are not supposed to have gender. and I was pointing out that Transformers have had Gender for 28 years and perhaps it's time to get used to that by now.

    I would further add I don't see anyone going Bring back Lasercores so very often - the concept of a 'Spark' has been fully accepted (as far as I can tell by the vast majority it's not even an issue) and that was a later revision too.

    I want to get her and 2010 Drift so I can call them Girlchan and Ken-star. (If the actual figure is any good of course.)

    She might not be some cosplay fan girl wannabe warrior type she might be some ancient traditional warrior Bludgeon type only female and able to fly and not evil - like.

    Yeah... Animorphs... Woman turning into a male lion was the least of the problems with that line and concept as a whole...

    There are times I wonder about the intellect of the fans when it comes to designing a character. Given there are two threads one discussing the female attributes on the physical level :rolls eyes:. However, I believe that father of billions Rodimus Prime on Luna 1 cause new Transformers to come online. (Prefer the Rung theory) She can be tied into Dark Cybertron and Knight of Cybertrons easily. Since there 1 Billion Sparks out there without protoforms.

    She probably honorable and chivalrous getting she resemble Maji era Samarai of feudal Japan. I mean they don't even have to use Jhaixus and his modification angle of Arcee in the Spotlight. (I hope not.)

    My first thought was if this gets made into an action figure it's going to look terrible. Short of Masterpiece, HasTak rarely put effort into paint apps so that kabuki face is going to get butchered on an actual figure.

    How is that a problem again? I would think people turning into lions would be a bigger problem.
